    Wow, so some good did come out of November. Now hopefully Mattis, and not Flynn, will be the one setting defense policy.

    well the points of Yesterday at 10:20 PM
    ... etc. have been, first, it's possible:

    "... the retired Army lieutenant general is not eligible to take over the top Pentagon post for five more years due to his military service. But he could get a waiver from Congress to serve in the post, or step into a host of other prominent roles, such as CIA director."
    Who will be Trump's secretary of defense? http://www.militarytimes.com/articles/trump-defense-secretary-possibilities

    and, second,
    Once In Intelligence, Always In Intelligence
    I guess:

    and you may find for example

    so I'm not exactly surprised by "some reservations in French military circles" I quoted above ... something which is obviously important in
    US Military News, Reports, Data, etc.

    There's no way Flynn could get the 7 year waiver (Mattis can because he commands a lot of bipartisan appeal), his pro Russian shenanigans would likely cost the support of McCain and Graham, and at least a couple other Republican senators.

    On a side note: I hope the USAF will assist SL in upgrading the SLAF fleet.

    Augmented reality allows that. it would virtually cloak an aggressor in a enemy skin and "heighten reality" I remember a few years back NATO was looking into doing something similar. and shouldn't be to long before they start being able to do it for ground forces to.
