Sometimes I do write academic stuff. Tried to think about 3+ decades of "Strategic Stability" for the Journal of International Analytics (@mgimo_en): interanalytics.org/jour/arti… The situation gets complicated, but remains relatively stable. But there is work to be done.

In many ways, the Nuclear and Space Talks of the '80s were a lost opportunity for progress on binding norms of behavior in space. The head of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, along with Sec State George Schultz wanted to negotiate "rules of the road" for space.

XM-753 rocket-propelled AFAP showing W-79 warhead Removable “tritium reservoir” can be inserted to convert W-79 to “enhanced radiation” (neutron) shell. (LLNL) Note: So wish we had somewhere a full collection of all these released transparent weapon images from LLNL.

Today in 1977, a US Army CH-47 helicopter transporting an unspecified number and type of nuclear warheads in West Germany crashed shortly after takeoff when its main engine caught fire. The accident was classified as a DULL SWORD (from Chuck Hansen's “Swords of Armageddon”).

The Nth Country Experiment 1963 LLNL hired few postdocs & had them try to design nuclear weapon from unclassified info. After 3 years of research they successfully designed crude implosion plutonium bomb! @wellerstein know you wrote on it. What ever happened to those postdocs??

None of the weapons NATO is providing to Kyiv is a game-changer, but I think Russia wants to stop this support before it includes things like long-range missiles or missile defense. If Russia decides to escalate, they'll destroy Ukraine's TB2 on the ground in the first 30 minutes
Ukraine’s use of Turkish drones could be a complete game-changer, which is why Moscow seems so preoccupied with this issue.

None of that tactical level tech is a game changer. Fukuyama's tweet helps reveal how little public intellectuals or political decision makers often understand about military technology, and why its not a deciding input into decisions on war.
