FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – Today’s PDB includes critical issues regarding the China Threat and Indo-Pacific region, Homeland Security and Cyber Warfare attacks, US Military developments, including a highly concerning poll showing dramatically lower trust in the US military by Americans.
With the multitude of national security and intelligence topics that American Defense News (ADN) cannot adequately cover every day – we are providing our readers a PDB – not the President’s Daily Brief, but almost as good – Paul’s Daily Briefing.
HERE ARE TODAY’S PDB HIGHLIGHTS:
China Threat: Indo-Pacific
Guam would be key to responding to any conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.
Big talk? The Quad’s fledgling Indo-Pacific alliance will only survive with a meaningful mission. If the summit on Friday sticks to the stated agenda, it will be just another leaders’ forum.
North Korea Threat
Overall, South Korea will be paying about 44 percent of the overall cost of having American troops based on the peninsula. Thanks Trump.
About 56 percent of Americans said they have great trust in the military, down significantly in recent years.
The National Academy of Sciences is expected to issue a report on the technical feasibility of a long-range cannon that can fire artillery 1,000 nautical miles, then the Army will decide what’s next.
Homeland Security: Cyber Attacks
