Strategic Insights
Whiskey over Books, Again? Anti-Intellectualism and the Future Effectiveness of Army 2025, by Dr. Don M. Snider

You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. Comments by some NATO leaders like Polish President Andrzej Duda have raised questions about the adequacy of NATO's force posture in an upended European security environment. The recent announcement of a significant increase in funding for the European Reassurance Initiative (ERI) appears to be a step in the right direction, but will it satisfy NATO leaders in Central and Eastern Europe? In this podcast Dr. Deni examines these and issues surrounding the prospects for a revised NATO force posture east of Germany. This podcast is based in part on his recently published essay at The National Interest. Find this and all other podcasts here and be sure to subscribe.
