    Navy, Marines Wargaming New Gear to Support Emerging Warfare Concepts https://news.usni.org/2019/10/23/na...new-gear-to-support-emerging-warfare-concepts
    :

    ... Vice Adm. Jim Kilby, the deputy chief of naval operations for warfighting requirements and capabilities ... cited the Naval Integrated Fire Control-Counter Air (NIFC-CA) construct as an example of what the Navy has already done internally. The Standard Missile-6, Cooperative Engagement Capability, Aegis Baseline 9 guided-missile cruiser and the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft all have different program managers and resource sponsors but need to remain aligned, he said. But now, he wants to bring the Marine Corps into this construct, and perhaps even the Army or Air Force.

    only the Coast Guard would be missing in "this construct", LOL

    for those who'd ever read that article (nobody will) the acronym "LOCE" isn't defined inside, it's Littoral Operations in a Contested Environment

    still I'm struggling to understand the sentence "The NIFSA will also for the first time include new capabilities that the services need to rapidly incorporate, such as unmanned systems and connectors to support the Marine Corps’ Expeditionary Advance Base Operations concept, which falls under LOCE, rather than only include programs of record already in the fleet."

    more acronyms undefined in the article:
    EABO = Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations
    DMO = Distributed Maritime Operations

    Satellite Photos Call Into Question Impact Of U.S. Bombing Its Own Syrian Base After Retreat https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zo...u-s-bombing-its-own-syrian-base-after-retreat
    no comment other that Rogoway had been unaware of what happened today which is Trump lifts all sanctions against Turkey https://us.cnn.com/middleeast/live-news/syria-turkey-russia-10-23-2019/index.html

    looks like Trump, Esper and the Pentagon played a show for public and have made a deal with Mr. Erdogan and Mr. Putin some time ago
    LOL!

    another option would beTrump and Esper were ... so misinformed
    Esper Has Sharp Words for Turkey over Syria Invasion https://www.military.com/daily-news...s-sharp-words-turkey-over-syria-invasion.html

    amazingly, inside Esper also talks "increasing threats from China" while the US is unable to keep the ground against a NATO member

    Pentagon’s black intel funding dropped in FY19 https://www.defensenews.com/pentagon/2019/10/24/pentagon-black-intel-funding-dropped-in-fy19/

    personally I liked the Pentagonese, quote,
    In a two-paragraph statement announcing the FY19 number, the Pentagon noted that the funding “is aligned to support the National Defense Strategy.”
    end of quote, LOL

    2-3 each. The main aim again was as a flight trainer for allies doing joint training.
