anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources, long-dreamed-of sea lanes and a slew of potential
Well this story is disturbing to say the least. There is a lot admitted to in the following story about military operations in the Arctic region and
what they want to accomplish and prepare for.
I think the most disturbing excerpt from this story is :
The most immediate challenge may not be war -- both military and commercial assets are sparse enough to give all countries elbow room for a while --
but whether militaries can respond to a disaster.
Wonder why they are stating that the military needs to prepare more for a disaster than war.
"We have an entire ocean region that had previously been closed to the world now opening up," Huebert said. "There are numerous factors now coming
together that are mutually reinforcing themselves, causing a buildup of military capabilities in the region. This is only going to increase as time
Would love to see the roadmap for the buildup they are talking about in the region. This story wreaks of warnings and innuendo about what the
government and military either know or believe is going to happen very soon.
