Today’s Defense and International Relations Topics was created in 2012 as an outlet to discuss contemporary defense and IR topics in an unceremonious, informal, and non-academic manner. For the most part, these entries present the author’s position on a number of contemporary issues. Occasionally, a historical event is selected for analysis and discussion. The contents of this blog are the end product of the author’s opinions, beliefs, and research efforts. Today’s DIRT is not sponsored by, or affiliated with any public or private universities, government agencies, NGOs, research institutes or US combatant commands.
A Little About The Author…..
The Author of this blog is now officially over 44 and resides on the east coast of the United States. He has extensive real world experience in the fields of International Relations and Defense. He has earned an MSFS from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, as well as an MPA and Ph.D-Politics from Princeton University. He has also recently signed a two book deal with a New York City publishing house.
At present he is making final preparations on his first novel, which after getting through supply chain issues, faces another delay due to the current war in Ukraine….which the novel is loosely based upon. The Author simply can’t win. 🙂
On the side, he dabbles with editing a regional website/journal that combats the censorship efforts of a small, insulated town in New Jersey. Censorship and attacks made against persons and businesses to silence their opinions and beliefs are anti-American in every way and should be fought against tooth and nail.
