In a few minutes we’ll be live-tweeting today’s National Security Seminar Series event on irregular warfare, with Michael Kofman (@KofmanMichael), Kevin Pollpeter, and special guest Markus Garlauskas (@Mister_G_2), moderated by Bill Rosenau (@WilliamRosenau).
Rosenau: GPC often viewed on two fronts, as day-to-day competition on one hand and high-end competition on the other. Adversaries seek to use irregular warfare (IW) across both fronts
Look at questions of what modern IW looks like? How will adversaries employ IW in competition? And how they'd employ IW in armed conflict/conventional warfare?

THREAD: Hearing for #JulianAssange this Mon; US wants to extradite award-winning journalist for another show trial. Alleged crime: exposing US war crimes via #WikiLeaks

2 weeks after arrest, we spoke at 'Imperialism on Trial: Free Assange', May 1 2019, Bloomsbury, London...
Important to understand that this issue isn't just confined to #JulianAssange and #WikiLeaks, it will affect everyone whether you realize now or not....

Clip from 'Imperialism on Trial: #FreeJulianAssange', May 1 2019, Bloomsbury, London
One of the main problems we have now is that most of the mainstream do no consider #JulianAssange and #WikiLeaks at members of the Fourth Estate, a heavy irony in this case...

Listen to #DonaldRumsfeld say the day before #September11 that the #Pentagon couldn’t trace back 2.3 trillion dollars of transactions. This was a full blown #SadMoose/#Bonesman heist of the century. We need to convert this to the new format for tomorrow.
#Halliburton won many no bid contracts after they fabricated an #EndlessWar in #Iraq off of false intel provided by the 🤡’s which has lead to trillions of dollars & a million civilian lives. #HEISTOFTHECENTURY #AbsoluteEvil
