As a layman, not involved in the defence industry, I found Hugh White’s book to be extremely thought provoking, and indeed a bit worrying. Inasmuch as I don’t think our politicians are up to the challenge of making the hard decisions outlined for our future defence.
Man. You can just see how a mix of muddled politics. Unclear strategic thinking from forces that want big toys...a belief that the US is here forever...has dug us a big hole that it will be hard to get out of.
Well thought out hypothesis from very knowledgable background info, though a bit slow nd dull at times. Makes you think. I hope some of out politicians have a read. They really need to understand these ideas.
