: The Defense Minister says that American ground forces will not be allowed to move through Russia to Central Asian countries bordering Afghanistan. There are also doubts that the Trans-Siberian railroad could handle American M1 tanks (which weigh 70 tons each, some 20 tons more than Russian tanks, which are kept at the lower weight so they can be carried on Russian railroads.)  Russia does back military action against nations that support terrorists and is offering to share intelligence data on terrorists, and provide officers with experience fighting in Afghanistan to assist US planning.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
