FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."
-Anne Applebaum

For Unofficial Use Only is back!

For Unofficial Use Only is back!  So after a long hiatus I am returning to the blogosphere!  I haven't posted since September due to a crazy busy schedule preparing for the 20th International Seapower Symposium, which our office runs.  This event happens once every two years and is a gathering of the heads of navies from around the world.

    In other great news I am headed out to Monterey in a month to start up on my master's degree at the Naval Postgraduate School.  I will be studying international relations with an Africa focus.   I am excited to delve deeper into the academic side of what I have been snidely commenting on for the past year and a half.  Hopefully, my writing and analysis will improve as well!
