The good folks at the Institute of Land Warfare recently published an adaptation of my monograph, Special Operations Forces in Unlit Spaces: Understanding the World's Dark Spots in the Context of SOF Operational Planning, as part of their Land Warfare Paper series. Working with them was a pleasure, and I appreciate their attention to editing detail. Here is a link to the publication: http://www.ausa.org/publications/ilw/DigitalPublications/Documents/lwp101/index.html

I've been away for a spell, but I have not forgotten about this forum. I'll be returning to it very soon. There is definitely a lot to talk about in the world, particularly regarding many out-of-context misinterpretations of recent foreign policy approaches the United States has taken. The unfortunate bi-product of multiple 24-hour news outlets is that the level of analysis pertaining to current events fails to account for the current context in comparison to similar situations in context. Therefore, we will attempt to dig a little deeper than one or two news cycles with some recent events and look at their significance in the context of geopolitical norms and international theories.
