Commentary

     Readers of G2mil can see things have changed. As the website grew over the past seven years, it became difficult to keep the research portal updated.  Some 10% of links go dead each year, and articles need updates. Moreover, operating a website to discuss improving the U.S. military is pointless as careerism and legal corruption runs rampant, while the nation goes bankrupt from a federal government that wants to rule the world by printing dollars. 

     As a result, the "members" section is no longer updated. This allows me to focus on commentary and keeping key sections updated.  This is all free, including my book The Spectrum of Future Warfare.  I am very proud of its content because there is nothing like it on the world's market.  All "future warfare" books focus on history and mention new technologies, but offer nothing concrete.  Readers who enjoy the free content can support this website by paying for on-line access to the book, which is worth the price itself.
