#3 Russian, Chinese. Makes no difference. The willingness to empower Non-Commissioned Officers is antithesis to their cultures. It's something that they can't duplicate, but one which we can loose if we don't pay attention and allow the occasional screw up not to be the basis to pull the reigns too tight as to throw away the advantage.

#4 Not certain what we can teach the Russians about airborne operations. Interesting month to hold the exercises however.... 'May.'

#5 Good catch there Mr. B. 'May.'. In my humble opinion now is the time to work with a former ally. The elections are over so the political rhetorick can be toned down. Putin has a huge country to manage. Vast natural resources that China wants desperately. I side with Russia. I believe we have more in common now. They would be the best ally for stability in this part of the world. Seize the day. The Russian people don't want war. The want capitalism and freedom.
