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 also signed a two book deal with a New York City publishing house in June, 2021.
At the present time, the author is spending the summer in a beach house at the Jersey Shore working on the manuscript of his second novel. While his first novel has been held back due to the Russia-Ukraine Conflict, there will be no similar problems with book #2……unless the United States and China go to war. 🙂
