Quotes

According to the Nuclear Information Service report, "The nuclear relationship between the USA and the US is not a partnership of equals. The UK relies on unique US facilities and capabilities for support to the extent that its nuclear weapons programme cannot be regarded as technically independent from the USA."
On reshoring, Siebert says, "When taking a holistic view of costs, reshoring is the best objective answer for many businesses. The U S provides a lean supply chain, lower energy costs, lower true labor costs and the proven ability to innovate in the face of adversity. Businesses looking to move away from risks associated with intellectual-property and the complexity of lengthier supply chains are finding that Made in America is an obvious choice going forward."
"We had the intention to send a unit of the air mobile brigade which was very lightly armed, so it's not a real unit which would provoke hostilities" Kees Homan, a retired major general with the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, told DW
But the SIGAR report again shows the U S " current methods for monitoring weapons given to Afghanistan have fallen short. The Defense Department's "incompatible inventory systems" are rife with missing serial numbers and duplicate or inaccurate information, while "problems are far more severe" on the Afghan side, where a patchwork system used by the Afghan police sometimes relies on handwritten records. The Pentagon tracking efforts are complicated because it has two databases that are not linked, and there was missing or duplicate information for 43 percent of weapons in one of its systems."
