Pentagon Seeks New War Games
“The Pentagon think tank that has funded studies into whether Russian President Vladimir Putin has Asperger’s syndrome is expanding its research to futuristic war games and investigating the effects of embargoes and trade restrictions, newly released military documents show,” according to USA Today .
“The Office of Net Assessment wants to research the effects of trade interruptions, including those caused by blockades and trade embargoes, and ‘the economic dimension of military crises and warfare, including the character of economic warfare in a range of contexts and the implications for the United States, allies and adversaries.'”
“Economic sanctions, including those targeting the Russian oil industry, are a critical component of the allied response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea last year from Ukraine and the continuing Russian support of separatists in eastern Ukraine.”
