Read our most recent essay publication written by Co-Founder Peter J. Marzalik on the implications of Montenegro’s new membership in NATO. Also, check out our media page for an amusing video of a Russian military general showcasing broken materiel to Putin. We encourage you to subscribe to the Weekly Roundup newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.
