By Robert D Kaplan - Just finished reading it today, very interesting book. Being a neophyte compared to our resident SD person, that's you JD , & the forum isolationist from LA , I will pass on some thoughts.
Apparently our SD doesn't learn from history, if they did we would have a much different game plan in the ME. Why are we engaged in action whose chief beneficiary will be China?
I found one passage particularly humorous - things change little over time -
Turkey is a member of NATO, yet is not a member of the EU. & we wonder why Ergodan is like he is .Originally Posted by kaplan
I took a course in geopolitics while a college student - got the only A in a class full of honor roll folks, so find it interesting. Lots of food for thought -
I recommend it as a read -
