Russia's mobilization vs. Ukraine's increasingly Western-equipped force could be the nearest thing to an empirical case study in the long-running dispute between capability/quality and capacity/quantity in defense strategy and force planning. 1/25

Texas's solar market is booming, despite a lack of explicit solar policies. What Texas does have is: 1. Lots of sun. 2. Lots of land. 3. A competitive non-monopoly utility model. 4. Easy permitting for both energy and transmission. Every state and country can learn from 3 & 4.

Easiest, quickest solution will be for Israel to supply Ukraine with the proven IAI Harop and take out Russian drone operators first. Can US exert enough pressure on the Israeli government to make it happen though?
