Show Notes

In this episode, John Amble speaks to Sandor Fabian about a very specific approach to national defense: resistance.

But effectively embracing it as a strategic approach would require dramatic changes in force structure, training, equipment, doctrine, and more. And if small US allies choose to do so, it would have important implications for US special operations forces and for NATO.
