We need to know our enemies and take appropriate actions

Reader comment on item: "Godless Saracens Threatening Destruction":
in response to reader comment: The Days of National Security are No Longer Considered Tenable

Submitted by Admiral Peter Kikareas (United States), Mar 17, 2021 at 20:45

Yes we are in agreement in some serious aspects. I agree that "Russia, the Iranian Islamic Regime, Turkey, China, even North Korea, are all on a rage of empire building, all seeking their own means to dominate, or alliances of their own making in which the world must be subjugated to satisfy the mortal urge that once dominated empires, but cannot do so without bringing the scourge of self-destruction. All are suspect; all are doomed; only one survives"
As we agree on this, we need to do our best to get to know our enemies as there are serious misunderstandings,that allow them to grow and act without proper answer from our Alliances. Also we are not prepared to face all expected possible scenarios as we were doing up to 1990. Another issue is that we need to clean up our own houses and align our policies, not to allow them get away without burden, like we do now with Turkey and Iran. Turkey should not be allowed to be a NATO Allie anymore. A NATO UD Admiral made a misleading comment that Turkey is a good contributor of NATO. Very wrong, as this has been through history the way Turkey became an Empire by offering services to Byzantium. Unfortunately I watched the NATO secretary General to ptesent a conference, which was giving false data and comments as usual coming through paid propaganda. These are issues we find in front of us, and we pay the cost, which sometimes might be very big. Remember what happened before world war 2. I think this was more than satisfied and enough to share through an open discussion. Thank you!
