    the funniest part of
    DIB Calls BS On Buzzwords: Defense Innovation Board
    :
    The Defense Department is notoriously prone to jargon and cant, for multiple reasons: to communicate in time-saving code to fellow insiders, to obfuscate what’s actually happening to outsiders, and to proclaim compliance with superiors. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis‘s mantra, for example, is increasing “lethality,” a term his subordinates have slapped on all sorts of things. For his predecessor Ashton Carter, who created the Defense Innovation Advisory Board (confusingly acronymed as DIB, not DIAB), the Sesame Street words of the day were “innovation” and “offset.” For Donald Rumsfeld, it was “transformation.”

    I noticed because of the story (https://www.novinky.cz/zahranicni/e...-bude-podle-generala-usa-do-patnacti-let.html) now high on a server where I read my emails:
    America 'very likely' to be at war with China in 15 YEARS, warns former US general https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...S-general-says-war-China-likely-15-years.html
    • Ben Hodges warned of a 'very strong likelihood' of a conflict with China by 2033
    • Retired Lieutenant General called for European allies to bolster their defences
    • He said a recent near-miss between US navy destroyer and Chinese warship in disputed South China Sea pointed to 'increasingly tense relationship'
