    Joseph Stalin's persecution of Europeans vs. Isis; who is worse?

    in History

    People from neighboring countries like Finland, Hungary and Yugoslavia were forced into work camps under Stalin.  Did he have an objective like Isis does not?  When killing is killing or is it to build a new society?  The ultimate purge.


    Case study: Russian-Finnish Winter War of 1939-1941.  The Soviet Union ostensibly sought to claim parts of Finnish territory, demanding—amongst other concessions—that Finland cede substantial border territories in exchange for land elsewhere, claiming security reasons, primarily the protection of Leningrad, which was only 32 km (20 mi) from the Finnish border. Finland refused and the USSR invaded the country  Many Finns living in Soviet Karelia region were subject to labor camps because of persecution but also their lumber skills

    Episode 289: Best of Lawfare and the Long War

    in Military

    Never in our history have we fought a war where law, lawyers, and layers of legalese have impacted all levels of the war, Political, Strategic, Operational, and Tactical.


    Why do we find ourselves here and in what direction are we going?  


    From Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and even domestically, the legal definition of the use of military power is evolving.


    To discuss the impact of Lawfare for the full hour with Sal from the blog "CDR Salamander" and EagleOne from "EagleSpeak" will be David Glazier, CDR USN (Ret.).  


    David is a Professor of Law at Layola Law School in Los Angles.  Prior to Layola, he was a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law and a research fellow at the Center for National Security Law, where he conducted research on national security, military justice and the law of war. He also served as a pro bono consultant to Human Rights First.


    Before attending law school, Glazier served twenty-one years as a US Navy surface warfare officer. In that capacity, he commanded the USS George Philip (FFG-12), served as the Seventh Fleet staff officer responsible for the US Navy-Japan relationship, the Pacific Fleet officer responsible for the US Navy-PRC relationship, and participated in UN sanctions enforcement against Yugoslavia and Haiti.

    Glazier has a JD from the University of Virginia School of Law, an MA from Georgetown University in government/national security studies, and holds a BA in history from Amherst College.

    Diversity: A Failure

    in Politics

    The statements by many leading European heads of states--Angela Merkel, Nicholas Sarkozy, David Cameron, and others--has indicated that its not only common people, but even politicians in the establishment, who have to come to the conclusion that diversity and multiracialism has failed to work in the West. 


    Multiracial and multicultural societies have a long history of failing--Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Rwanda, Sudan, etc.. However, despite this long history of constant failure, the elite class of the West still continues to ply the general public of diversity's benefits.


    In this segement of "America in Focus," we will examine diversity and multiracialism in more focus, with the candid and scholarly appraisal of it from a leading academic, among others, who has written and investigated the matter extensively. Dr. Tomislav Sunic has risked criticism and ostracism alike to have written several articles and books, where he takes aim at the credo and mantra of the Western elite class.

While sailing as Ship Master, he did difficult navigation among icebergs in the far north; had his ship breaking up and losing three of its four lifeboats in a “super” storm, was confined with his crew on a Liberty ship, in ballast, during a winter-time crossing of the North Atlantic, with a killer virus on board, sailed to Korea before, during and after the Korean War, took action to minimize damage from an un-avoidable collision and directed actions to separate the two ships which were connected by their anchor chains, made an ocean crossing with growing cracks in the main deck threatening to cause his ship to break-up, steamed transpacific with a cargo of coal undergoing spontaneous combustion, had his ship to boarded and crew attacked by a large and angry mob in Yugoslavia, had a shifting cargo of army tanks threatening to knock out the sides of his ship during a storm, and had unique interaction with both ship and shore personalities. Based on actual experiences.
