JDB Update

With all of the comings and goings with regard to the Iowa Caucuses I have been rather busy. First Sky News, then ITalk FM, then copious amounts of tweeting and now two more appointments: I will be talking with Lisa Grant this evening on Talk Radio Europe, addressing the fallout from the Iowa result and the implications for the GOP race. Listen live from 19:15 GMT this evening at: http://www.talkradioeurope.com/

Tomorrow I will be a guest on the Voice of Russia, discussing the defence cuts that President Obama is announcing today and their implications for the United States military capability. The show is recording tomorrow, and I will post once I know an air time.

I am also working on a paper addressing the use of warfare to gain and secure elected office, which I anticipate getting to print later in the year.

I hope that you have all had a great Christmas break and that you all have a wonderful 2012.

JDB Addresses ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement on Talk Radio Europe

Ahead of my departure for Los Angeles I have recorded an interview with Lisa Grant of Talk Radio Europe addressing the growing unrest across the United States that is occurring under the banner of Occupy Wall Street.

With reports of unrest and disturbances on both sides how will this ply out in light of the forthcoming presidential election? Will the protestors get their way or will their very efforts undermine their aspirations for change and contribute instead to a backlash akin to the Silent Majority of the late 1960s?

Tune in on October 12 at 20:20 GMT to hear my thoughts on this.
