It’s back to reading more novels and crafting for me today, so here are a few links worth reading (and links I wish President Trump would read):
CHAOS THEORY: CONFUSING DIPLOMATIC MEANS AND ENDS IN HELSINKI, by Matthew Blood at the Small Wars Journal. A clearly written foreign policy piece that should be put on the President’s desk as a foreign policy 101 primer.
Agents of the Russian World: Proxy Groups in the Contested Neighbourhood by Orysia Lutsevych from Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London. A PDF report on how the Russians meddle in other countries internal affairs.
HOW THE BIG LEBOWSKI EXPLAINS THE HELSINKI SUMMIT AND THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER by Kori Schake and Jeremy Shapiro at War On The Rocks. An entertaining read and interesting analysis of the Helsinki summit.
Update: Here’s another fascinating link by Steven L. Hall, retired CIA chief of Russian Operations, tweeted:
34 years ago, a KGB defector chillingly predicted modern America by Paul Ratner at the Big Think.
