    Brexit - The Hard Reality feat. CDRE Patrick J. Tyrrell OBE RN (Ret’d)

    In this episode of STRATEGIKON, we examine Britain one year after the decision to leave the European Union, and at the end of the time in which they could make a deal with the EU. Of course, we could not ignore the strategic goings-on in America and China with this discussion, so we also consider the UK and the EU in the context of the world economic and strategic orders. Our virtual studio is hosted by John Bruni, Co-Hosted by David Olney, and joined by our regular guest CDRE Pat Tyrrell from Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Producer Tim Whiffen was only able to make the discussion in spirit, so John recorded this one. Well done John!

    Hermanos de Armas ‘Brothers at Arms’ - A tale of two countries Colombia and Venezuela feat. H.E. Alberto José Mejia Ferrero & Prof. R. Evan Ellis

    Hermanos de Armas ‘Brothers at Arms’ - A tale of two countries Colombia and Venezuela feat. H.E. Alberto José Mejia Ferrero & Prof. R. Evan Ellis

    John, David and Tim are joined by Ambassador of Colombia to Australia, H.E. Alberto José Mejia Ferrero & Prof. R. Evan Ellis, US Army War College, to discuss the complications Colombia faces with the Venezuela crises. This region is of utmost significance to Australia as our interests shift from rising tensions with the Chinese Communist Party. With the Colombian embassy being closed in Venezuela and the Venezuelan refugee crisis at its peak, it is imperative for Australian's to watch with a keen eye for how assistance can be offered to strengthen important South American relations.

    Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays from all of us here at STRATEGIKON, may 2021 bring along new challenges for sure, but also the wisdom carried through from 2020.
