    TDO PRes

    Good evening, I have an RFI from a member who wants to VOT from PAO (Navy) to TDO in the reserves. It was flagged to me that the TDO trade is open for both NAVRES and Army Reserve (as per the recruiting website); however, since it is a purple trade my assumption is that the branch manages entry...

    Difference between NQual AIOV and AIPB?

    Hello, It's been years since I have posted here (no worries, did the search function check). Just a question that was raised and I am hoping experienced HRAs or PSOs would be able to answer: Given that BMOQ is supposed to be a common element course is there a reason why Army Reserve officers...

In the case of a trade qualified army NCM transferring to the navy as an officer do they get an IAP or BOTP bypass or he/she has to start from scratch? Currently I am doing graduate school in the UK however, I am in the supp...

    Colombia (Super thread)

    That is right... Colombia's combat wing consists of 12 Kfir fighters and 10 more were recently order to Israel, but most military spending goes to anti insurgency equipment and training. Probably, in matters of personel training Colombia is better, however Venezuela has spent A LOT of...

    Colombia (Super thread)

    Well, I would not see president Lula getting that involved appart from the mediator role if Chavez rotten brain sees a casus bellum and decides to attack Colombia. At least the ratification of Venezuela's membership into Mercosur (Southern Common Market) is at stake right now as the Brazilians...

    Colombia (Super thread)

    Mr. Chavez pisses me off so much. For those who have seen his rants in "Alo Presidente" you just have to love how he calls everyonethat it is outside his "21st Century Socialism" club, immorals, puppies of the empire, criminals, assassins etc etc. However, it seems he has the moral high ground...

    Saving NATO II

    Russia as the raison d'etre for NATO simply won't work anymore. The Europeans prefer to approach Russia through the Stategic Partnership and the ENP set up a couple of years ago. Russia itself is behaving more in its own microcosm as it wants to define itself as an autonomous actor in the...

    Heating Up in Corsica

    It reminds me of my sweet Basque fatherland... nationalist punks setting garbage bins on fire and playing with HMEs. I really despise nationalist douche bags. They harm more of "their people" and damage the infrastructure of their beloved region in the name of self determination. Logical...

    US Foreign Policy: 2009 and Beyond

    Yeah I am suscribed to the hardcopy of this journal. However you should be careful to the extent you take this pre-election articles at heart. I love the works of scholars that have submitted fascinating academic articles such as J. Nye, J. Sweig and Hoffman. However, when it comes to...

    Georgia and the Russian invasions/annexations/Lebensraum (2008 & 2015)

    Actually, you can find plenty of academic literature and research done on this. I recommend works by Dr. Julie Anderson and O. Kryshtanovskaya. Numerous members of the Siloviki (Putin's ex KGB/FSB gents club) have made blatant statements such as: "The Fall of the Soviet Union is worst thing it...
