    Thanks for posting these publications.

    Now a lot of people are saying that America’s new cruise missile will be destabilizing and will make Russia launch a first nuclear strike against the U.S. and Europe. Is this something to be concerned about?

  2. Will we see any write ups regarding all the recent “Top Gun” style encounters?

      Eh, I honestly don’t see them as being that objectively important; they say something about Putin’s gamesmanship, but in the grand scheme of things I think the best response is to ignore such displays. Maybe I will write something on this, so watch this space!

    Hi Mr. Galeotti,

    Is it okay if I ask you a question? Because something’s REALLY scaring me!
