  • Greg Sheridan argues criticisms of Prime Minister Rudd's management style, which I referred to in an earlier post, are overstated. 
  • US Defense Secretary Bob Gates seems to never give a dull speech. This one touches on many issues, but I liked the 'modesty' theme.
  • And here's another recent US speech, by Chairman of the National Intelligence Council Thomas Fingar, on US intelligence reform.
  • India has maritime ambitions, but these will always be constrained by its continuing need for land power, as evidenced by a new order for over 1300 Russian tanks.
