Do we still having the strongest military in the world? Have our allies caught up to our force?

The U.S. military’s competitive edge seems to be “eroding” thanks to nearly 16 years of war and uncertain defense spending, according to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Why is the military declining in its structure? Is most of the military’s loss due to the “extraordinarily high level of operational tempo,” which has put a significant burden on U.S. forces? What is the overall state of our military and their capabilities?

Donald Mazzella is a Veteran Newsman and Commentator, COO of Small Business Digest publications and Author of many books including “An American Family Sampler.” His experience allows him to elaborate on this trending story and open us up to what it all means.

Taiwan and Lithuania team up against China

Taiwan and Lithuania team up against China

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-59890338
“Taiwan has said it will set up a $200m (£148m) fund to invest in Lithuania as it tries to fend off Chinese diplomatic and trade pressure on the Baltic state.

Taipei said it aims to make its first investment later this year and the money is guaranteed by its national development fund and central bank.

It comes after Lithuania allowed Taiwan to open a de facto embassy there, a potential sign of growing ties.

China downgraded its diplomatic relations with Lithuania days later.”–BBC

 John D. Kuhns, author of They Call Me Ishmael. Set in the South Pacific and based on true events, this is a novel about war, gold, Communist China, and the emergence of a new nation.
Set in the South Pacific and based on true events, this is a novel about war, gold, interracial friendship, and the emergence of a new nation.

Growing up in Bougainville, an island archipelago in the South Pacific, Ishmael always wanted to be a soldier. The Crisis—a brutal civil war with Papua New Guinea ignited by the gargantuan Panguna Mine—gives him his chance. As the guerrilla leader of the Bougainville Revolutionary Army, Ishmael secures a peace agreement that provides his islands with a measure of autonomy and the future right to conduct an independence referendum. If the people vote affirmatively, Bougainville could become the newest nation on earth.

In the aftermath of the Crisis, Bougainville’s corrupt and inept government causes a vacuum. From its perch across the Pacific, China salivates. They covet Bougainville, both for its Panguna Mine and its strategic location, and are prepared to do whatever it takes to grab it.

When Ishmael and Bougainville’s chiefs ask Jack Davis, a pin-striped American investor, to help rebuild their economy, he is intrigued. Although primitive, Bougainville holds billions in gold and copper, and its people seem lovely. Jack’s life has been comfortable, but things are changing. His family members have moved on with their lives, and his country doesn’t seem to value people like him anymore. Maybe Bougainville would be different.

That two men—one black and one white—from totally different walks of life could meet on a remote island and decide they stand for the same things is a testament to Bougainville and its people and shapes a story that anyone who believes in the innate goodness of humanity should read. The fact that it all really happened is truly inspirational.

BIO: John D. Kuhns is the author of three previously published novels, including China Fortunes, Ballad of a Tin Man, and South of the Clouds. He writes stories derived from his personal experiences. He has lived and worked in Bougainville since 2015.

Published

As the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted its worst day since October of last year over pandemic fears, FOX Business has learned that top executives at the Big Banks are closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus Delta variant and how it may impact plans to re-open offices particularly in large urban areas such as New York City.

People at banks such as JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs say that so far they’ve made no changes to their re-opening plans. JPMorgan and Goldman have already told employees to begin to return to the office after about a year of at-home working during the worst of the pandemic. While Morgan Stanley has said it expects employees to return to the office after Labor Day.
