Moscow-Based Palestinian Urologist Dr. Asaad Ahmad Matar Defends Russia’s Anti-Gay Propaganda Law [Video]

Moscow-based Palestinian urologist Dr. Asaad Ahmad Matar said in a December 15, 2022 show on Russia Today TV that Russia’s recently-amended bill against “gay propaganda” is meant to protect Russian society. He said that until recent years, homosexuality had been criminalized and treated as a mental illness all over the world, and he questioned why it is that kindergartens and Hollywood films teach children that there is a “third gender.”

Empty Bins in a Wartime Environment [Video]

The U.S. defense industrial base is not adequately prepared for the international security environment that now exists. In a major regional conflict—such as a war with China in the Taiwan Strait—the U.S. use of munitions would likely exceed the current stockpiles of the U.S. Department of Defense. According to the results of a series of CSIS war games, the United States would likely run out of some munitions—such as long-range, precision-guided munitions—in less than one week in a Taiwan Strait conflict. The war in Ukraine has also exposed serious deficiencies in the U.S. defense industrial base and serves as a stark reminder that a protracted conflict is likely to be an industrial war that requires a defense industry able to manufacture enough munitions, weapons systems, and matériel to replace depleted stockpiles. As timelines for a possible conflict in Asia shrink, the goal should be to support the production capacity required to enable the United States and its allies and partners to deter and, if deterrence fails, fight and win at least one major theater war—if not two. “Just in time” and lean manufacturing operations must be balanced with carrying added capacity. The U.S. Department of Defense, in coordination with Congress, should develop a plan now that involves taking steps to streamline and improve production, acquisitions, replenishment, Foreign Military Sales, ITAR, and other policies and procedures. A revitalization of the defense industrial base will not happen overnight for the United States or its allies and partners. It is time to prepare for the era of competition that now exists.To read the full report, visit https://www.csis.org/analysis/empty-bins-wartime-environment-challenge-us-defense-industrial-base---------------------------------------------A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.

Please join the Center for Strategic and International Studies on Friday, January 27, for a  Smart Women, Smart Power conversation with Sandra Douglass Morgan, president of the Las Vegas Raiders. Sandra will join Emily Harding, CSIS senior fellow and deputy director of the International Security Program, for a discussion on the importance of sports teams engaging in local politics and community building to strengthen the foundation of their respective cities, and ultimately the country. The pair will also discuss Sandra’s role as chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board during the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, where she guided the gaming industry when Las Vegas closed its doors to over 40 million visitors and again when they welcomed tourists back. Sandra Douglass Morgan was named President of the Las Vegas Raiders by Owner Mark Davis on July 7, 2022. A Las Vegas native, Morgan has long been a trailblazer and was the first person of color to serve as chair of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and first African American City Attorney in the State of Nevada. Morgan has 20 years of experience as a chief regulator, director, attorney and advisor to integrated resorts, casinos, and telecommunications companies. She is the immediate past Chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and served as Commissioner on the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
