>From today's news services:
RUSSIAN MILITARY THINK-TANK RECOMMENDS RUSSIA-WEST CONFRONTATION. A report
by the Institute for Defense Studies, reportedly commissioned by the
Defense Ministry, concludes that "the U.S. and its allies represent the
main threat to Russian national security" and recommends a return to a
nuclear stand-off and reoccupation of the Baltic states to counter Western
attempts to isolate and destroy Russia, Segodnya reported on 20 October.
The institute also recommends economic protectionism, a military-nuclear
alliance with Iraq, Iran, and Libya, and the creation of a new state
including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. Duma Defense Committee
Chairman Sergei Yushenkov, a member of Russia's Choice, said the report is
a cause for concern as it reflects the mindset of the Russian high
command. -- Constantine Dmitriev
I wonder if NATO uses systems theory and diagrams to predict the
consequences of their actions ?
Has anyone designed one for this growing conflict ?
