Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And on Monday, the new head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told Congress that the US faces more military threats worldwide than ever before: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/nov/28/us-more-threats-military-dempsey

Really, General? What a surprise.

Sorry, the general wasn't speaking to the Congress, which is much too busy these days trying to pass legislation to subvert the Constitution.

He was, instead, in London, where the Guardian says he

told an audience . . . on Monday that meeting the new challenges in a time of austerity would require a transformation in military thinking.
