Coming At You: A New Kind of Warfare;
A Simple Truth: Thanks Is Giving
Last week, Leid Stories reported the militarization of police departments all over the United States through a Defense Department program that arms them with military-grade equipment used for warfare. (See Archives, Nov. 21, 2013 program.)
Today, a former State Department chief strategist on counterterrorism and guerrilla warfare says that wars in the near future will be fought largely in sprawling coastal cities and in underdeveloped areas of the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia.
Leid Stories observes the “National Day of Mourning” (aka Thanksgiving Day) with a contemplative dialogue on recalibrating ourselves to be useful agents of change in a dog-eat-dog, I’ve-got-mine-go-get-yours world.
