    NATO’s Shifting Priorities: The View from Georgia

    Tedo Japaridze Security, Eurasia The road to Warsaw is not a narrative of confrontation with Russia. This year’s Warsaw Summit in July focuses on stability beyond “our borders.” The notion of stability is straightforward.

    Shocking News for the US Army: They Might Lose the Wars of the Future

    Dan Goure Security, Russia, China and others are catching up–a big problem for sure.

    Russia’s Deadly T-80 Tank vs. America’s M-1 Abrams: Who Wins?

    Michael Peck Security, Europe It’s 1989, and the USSR just invaded Western Germany. The best Cold War weapons are about to square off. God favors the side with the bigger battalions, says the old military proverb. The Soviet Union didn’t believe in God, but heaven knows, it did swear by the bigger battalions.
