In the wake of the presidential election, we’ve all been asking simplistic questions about how Donald Trump won. Was it economics? Was it racism? Was it misogyny? Did it come down to identity? We know that it can’t have been just one thing, and that President Trump’s triumph was a concoction of many things. Nonetheless, several factors came together in a peculiar way, with serious electoral consequences. Millions of white voters began to see themselves more openly not as white supremacists but as white identified.
People are interesting creatures. We want so badly to be rational and at the same time are incredibly irrational when confronted with information that is contrary to what we believe. For both individuals and institutions facing critical decisions, how we respond to new, contrary information cuts to the core of whether we will be successful. Today, the Army sits at such a decision point: Does forward-deployment of armored forces in regions vital to US interests or a rotational model offer a better means of meeting security requirements?
The Russian side conducts significantly more training. Major maneuvers are just the tip of the iceberg. Russia conducts many more exercises involving more than 1,500 soldiers than the West does. The real figure could be even higher than currently known. Russia also conducts numerous combat readiness inspections, but the West hasn't conducted any.
INTERVJU, JELENA MILIĆ: Da sam Vučić, nikad ne bih priznala Kosovo, dok ga ne priznaju sve zemlje EU
Kad sedneš preko puta Jelene Milić, imaš osećaj da sediš preko puta holograma. Deluje nekako digitalno. Kao avatar. Često koristi engleske reči i izraze, pa sve to skupa nekako pojačava image koji vidiš. Šta očekuješ u tom trenutku? U najmanju ruku da ćeš proći kao Vedrana Rudan ili Marko Vidojković kod Milomira Marića. Od sudara s njom, istine radi, Vedrane Rudan nema baš mnogo na srpskim TV ekranima. Naš prekodrinski gen nam sugeriše da je takva sudbina ovog intervjua. Nakon dva sata i malo više razgovora, shvatiš da Jelenu Milić u stvari nikada niko nije saslušao do kraja. S njom je vrlo lako ne složiti se u većini stavova, ali joj se ne može osporiti konzistentnost u razmišljanju.
