War and Geopolitics

War and Geopolitics is where Richard dissects global tensions with a scalpel of sarcasm and a lens of logic. Owing to his background as a Surface Warfare Officer (USN) during the Cold War era (with a front-row seat to the subsequent need to stir up trouble in the Middle East for the sake of the Conflict Industrial Complex)...and education in the history of sea power for empires...plus lots of tooling around in straights, choke points, canals (transiting the Suez twice), he has a keen sense of how everything is and has to be lies because in the words of Col. Jessup, "You can't handle the truth!"
