Rome resurgent
Rome resurgent   MILITARY HISTORY Between the fall of the western Roman Empire in the fifth century and the collapse of the east in the face of the Arab invasions in the seventh, the remarkable era of the Emperor Justinian (527-568) dominated the Mediterranean region. Famous for his conquests in Italy and North Africa, and for the creation of spectacular monuments such as the Hagia Sophia, his reign was also marked by global religious conflict within the Christian world and an outbreak of plague that some have compared to the Black Death. For many historians, Justinian is far more than an anomaly of Byzantine ambition between the eras of Attila and Muhammad; he is the causal link that binds together the two moments of Roman imperial collapse. Determined to reverse the losses Rome suffered in the fifth century, Justinian unleashed an aggressive campaign in the face of tremendous adversity, not least the plague. This book offers a fundamentally new interpretation of his conquest policy and its overall strategic effect, which has often been seen as imperial overreach, making the regime vulnerable to the Islamic takeover of its richest territories in the seventh century and thus transforming the great Roman Empire of Late Antiquity into its pale shadow of the Middle Ages.    In Rome Resurgent, historian Peter Heather draws heavily upon contemporary sources, including the writings of Procopius, the principal historian of the time, while also recasting that author's narrative by bringing together new perspectives based on a wide array of additional source material. A huge body of archaeological evidence has become available for the sixth century, providing entirely new means of understanding the overall effects of Justinian's war policies. Building on his own distinguished work on the Vandals, Goths, and Persians, Heather also gives much fuller coverage to Rome's enemies than Procopius ever did. A briskly paced narrative by a master historian, Rome Resurgent promises to introduce readers to this captivating and unjustly overlooked chapter in ancient warfare.

Kilcullen out of the mountains
David Kilcullens Out of the Mountains-A Disappointing Book Book Review I have not been a fan of General Petraeus after what I saw of his operations in Afghanistan , nor of his predecessor General Mc Chrystal , so reading David Kilcullen was not a priority. Nevertheless I was attracted to the imaginatively chosen title of this book “ Out of the Mountains” and a nostalgic reminder of the days of Che Guevera when Urban Guerrilla was a much hated or much romantic word. The book turned out to be a big disappointment. Firstly I contest the title and its logic.The US did not head into the mountains in 2001 and thereafter and most US casualties in Afghanistan did not occur in the mountains but in the plains and desert of Helmand and Kandahar. Kilcullen states on page. 7 that Taliban main force was in Eastern Afghanistan.This is a factually incorrect statement.Main Taliban force that inflicted over 60 % casualties on the US forces is based in South west Afghanistan and not eastern Afghanistan. On page 25 he makes a fleeting or passing reference to Obama Doctrine i.e use of drones in Afghanistan but simply leaves this great faux pas of US policy without any discussion or analysis. The word “ Drone” an important albeit much misused and ineffective US arsenal tool is not mentioned in the whole book at all. On page 25 Kilcullen mentions importance of acting against “non state actors” but does not explain that most non state actors encountered by the USA in Afghanistan are Pakistani proxies. US action in Afghanistan is concentrated on non state actors as the USA has failed to devise any clear strategy about dealing with sponsors of non state actors in Afghanistan , ie Pakistani state thus it keeps on beating the tail of the snake ie the Taliban proxies. While Kilcullen mentions Pakistani advisors , in the entire narrative he thinks that Pakistani factor is not as decisive as Talibans inner dynamics which remains a weak assertion as it has no connection with hard facts of the situation. The repeated references to the war being mainly waged in the mountains like again on page.27 are factually incorrect but Kilcullen repeats them again and again. The authors treatment of Karachi is sketchy and incomplete.He altogether misses out MQM, Liari Gangs , Kathor gangs and the meddling of the Pakistani state as a result of which Pakistani military intelligence midwife MQM and many other organizations that destroyed Karachis peace. Kilcullen concentrates on clichés like massive population growth but misses out more important reasons why Karachi for example became extremised and destabilized ie meddling of state intelligence agencies.

intelligence Activities in Ancient Rome -Trust in the Gods but Verify By Rose Mary Sheldon-318 Pages –Frank Cass -2005 –ISBN- 0-7146-5480-9 Dismal failure of CIA in Syrian War specially in assessing the independent will of the enemy ,proves that technology will never be able to overcome failures which have their roots and origins in human incompetence when characters like Panetta and Brennan head the CIA and when arm chair strategists like Riedel design strategies like Afghan surge which are then executed by ultra ambitious careerists like Mc Chrystal and Petraeus.

Nonsense being circulated in Pakistan with active support from security set up as below—-The 2nd pilot which Pakistan captured but Pakistan hide the.news after few hours..reason....as that pilot was of.... Sukhoi Su-30 plane the most highly sophisticated plane in india arsenal and guess what who was flying it...an israel national and pilot..... since India could not ask for that person....in any press conference.....so Israel indirectly asked through US for their pilot...You can understand what big nexus is....being played against Pakistan...! And another update from yesterday....Pakistan got a wake up call from Israel through US to give back its pilot otherwise we will attack.....and Pakistan then said directly to Israel through some middle man probably saudia arabia that....Pakistan will attack israel as Israel send his pilot and plane probably to attack Pakistan....and the latest news of last night....US has immediately send its defence missile system THAAd on a c130 plane to Israel to intercept the Pakistani missile.......! I can verify the news of THAAD landing in Israel city from a defence website tooo... See sir all this is happening ....just imagine how much pressure and work load our army and IK is bearing......God help be with them...!
