On Katya Adler

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 21 hours ago
Katya Adler's latest BBC News website piece *'Why Brexit Stage Two may turn into a rocky ride' *is typical of her output. Yes, she's the BBC's Europe Editor, but her focus is far more narrowly focused on the EU (and a certain country that's about to leave the EU), so she might better be described as the BBC's European Union Editor. That being so, she's bound to report very heavily the views of those in charge of the EU, even at the risk of sometimes sounding like a parrot - which would be fine if she also maintained a healthy scepticism about their pronouncements and treated UK go... more »

Greens Intimidating Big Business

PA Pundits - International at PA Pundits – International - 21 hours ago
By Peter Murphy ~ “Big Business” has been portrayed in history as intimidating and domineering in society over small business competitors, workers and politicians. In some ways that remains true.

YouTube *Loren Thompson, Forbes:* *Top Five Steps Trump Has Taken To Prepare The U.S. Military For Whatever Comes Next * Last week’s domestic reaction to the killing of Iran’s top military commander was predictably partisan and speculative. Nobody can say for sure what will happen next in the Persian Gulf—just as we don’t know what lies ahead on the Korean Peninsula, in Eastern Europe, or in the Horn of Africa. In such circumstances, the only prudent posture for America’s military is to be prepared for a diverse array of cha... more »

Sebastien Roblin at The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, * State-of-the-art stealth capabilities. *Key Point:* So far, B-2s have mostly leveraged their range and payload rather than stealth for actual combat operations.

Mark Episkopos at The National Interest - 1 day ago
