Defense One
US Military ‘Furiously’ Rewriting Nuclear Deterrence to Address Russia and China, STRATCOM Chief Says [Navy Adm. Chas Richard] (The US is now in uncharted territory with two peer competitors of the US allied with each other.)
Tara Copp

How Putin’s Ukraine War Has Only Made Russia More Reliant on China (This is one of the silliest posts I have read about Russia and China — with the exception of the Small Wars Journal in general. Andrei Martyanov has shown how and why Russia is the senior partner to China. Tag as useful fiction.)
Thomas Low is pursuing a masters in international security at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government. He has previously written for National Defense magazine and the American Conservative.  P.W Singer is senior fellow at New America and co-founder of Useful Fiction LLC.

International Republican Institute 
IRI Ukraine Poll Shows Strong Confidence in Victory over Russia, Overwhelming Approval for Zelensky, Little Desire for Territorial Concessions, and a Spike for NATO Membership ("Soon after Reagan’s prescient words, the International Republican Institute (IRI) was founded as one of the core institutes of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), with a mission to advance democracy worldwide." from the About page)

Al Jazeera
UK says Russia ‘starting to fail’ in Ukraine war (evidence-free claim as Russia contradicted by reports as the Russian military and the republic militias grind on.)

Southfront (sanctioned by the US Treasury Department)
Senior US Marine Corps Officer Expresses Admiration For The ‘Revolutionary’ Way In Which Russia Has Fought Its War In Ukraine ("The picture that has been presented of the war in Ukraine is completely at odds with the reality of the situation on the ground.  Surprisingly, information that supports this assertion, which totally undermines the Western media narratives regarding the war, is provided by an article in the August edition of the United States Marine Corps Gazette. Writing under under the pen name Marinus, a senior marine corps officer, provides an objective analysis of Russian military strategy since late February. It totally undermines the narratives provided by Western media and pro Washington politicians." Must-read)
Dr. Leon Tressell
All Our Systems Are Built To Elevate Viciousness
Caitlin Johnstone

I'll put it in this morning's links, mi.

Nothing new really. Back to the red scare and J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. But then it was aimed at the left. Now the so-called left is on board with it.
