… (Virtual) Battlefield.

"U.S. interest in the Balkans has waxed and waned. It is time for wax on.

The Balkans have been on America's back burner since the end of the Clinton era. Investing some attention and exerting some influence on the region should be more than a second-tier item on the administration's foreign policy agenda.

Few would argue that the peace and stability of western Europe shouldn't be a vital interest of the United States. The greatest external threat to a stable Europe is Putin. The Balkans is a playground for bad actors—and likely will be an increasing priority for them. Stopping these misadventures before they spin out of control just makes sense…"

You must defeat the enemy single-handedly foxweasel. Best wishes and thanks for your service.

Foxweasel, I assume (hope) you are not part of the Intel Corps!!!

Why stop there? Share with the world your unit details, home address, car registration, favourite pubs a handy link to your Facebook page friends and family!

I note no mention of doing anything to improve relations with Serbia.

Really put the foot wrong there.

Major Tom, thanks for the Opsec advice, is that your real rank? Do you really think I would have said I was going to Albania on exercise if it was a secret? Do you think the Albanians don't know we're coming?

This is Ground Control to Major Tom:

Nobody expects the British Expedition! Cardinal Biggles, bring the comfy carrier! Wot? No cushions? That's just daft!

Foxweasel will go in like a lamb but return like an Albanian Lion; err, or was that last year's exercise?

Apologies for butting in, but I couldn't resist.

Cheers and be safe.
Rod Robertson.
