I would like to share with you the links to two of my recent public appearances which provide a more extensive view of my thoughts on the current international scenario.
The first is an interview conducted on March 30 with journalist Ben Cattaneo of the British-based podcast called All Things Risk. Here we explored some of the highest risk decisions made by General and President Dwight D Eisenhower during his military and political career. In the second half we looked at the short-term and long-term challenges associated with the United States and NATO allies’ current involvement in the war in Ukraine.
The second is a video recording of my participation in a round-table discussion entitled “The New MAD: Massive attacks of disruption” hosted on April 11 by the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security at the Atlantic Council. The purpose of the event was to evaluate and propose solutions to the current threats posed to our domestic and international security by the increasingly unstable interconnectedness of the world we live in today.
This event was presided over by Dr. Christopher Preble, co-director of the New American Engagement Initiative at the Scowcroft Center, and included Senior Advisor of the Atlantic Council Dr. Harlan Ullman, author of The Fifth Horseman and the New MAD; Admiral James Foggo, Dean of the Center for Maritime Strategy, Navy League of the United States, as well as Dr. Isabel Sawhill, Senior Fellow of Economics at the Brookings Institution.
I hope you will find the topics presented in both recordings highly relevant to thinking about the strategic implications of recent events.
All my best,
