You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. The Russian government is building what looks like a forward operating post in Latakia, Syria. Media reports indicate several advanced T-90 tanks, armored personnel carriers, 200 Russian marines, and housing for as many as 1,500 personal are already on the ground. In response, officials in Washington have called for Moscow to back off, arguing that Russia's involvement will only worsen the conflict and complicate efforts to reach a political resolution. However, Dr. Deni argues that if Russia really is the most significant threat to the United States, perhaps it is ultimately in American interests to see Russia bogged down in Syria, supporting an unpopular client government with little prospect for success.

The faculty of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) includes a carefully selected mix of men and women with deep experience in military and national security strategy. To provide a venue for their analysis of the challenges and best practices of strategic leadership and to make available to the students and faculty of USAWC and other institutions in the professional military educational system, the Strategic Studies Institute has created the "practitioners' corner."
