I’m joining the Marines. So I’ll be at the mercy of Uncle Sam til roughly 2019. Crazy. Anyways, military is downsizing right now but I fully expect to be at war again in the next two years. I think the destabilization in the Middle East will continue to spread, and if a caliphate does come into existence, shit will blow up. Depending, we might get extremely lucky and have a caliph who’s more of builder than a warrior. If he is a warrior, depending on his intelligence, there may or may not be overt action but there will always be spy games and those carry the risk of turning into something greater. In addition to that, I expect further civil unrest in Russia, China, the U.S. and Europe. All it takes is for one node to fail in this global economy and everything gets fucked. It’s amazing that it hasn’t happened yet. If anything does happen, I’ll be right at the front hopefully.
Probably won’t be checking in here more than every few months from now on. I like you all and hope to meet you sometime.
