Russia, Helicopters and Iraq in the Week Ahead

It’s a short week thanks to the July Fourth holiday. Yet even with Congress on recess, there are still events out there for the national security-minded.

Monday morning, the Center for Strategic and International Studies examines Russian defense capabilities.

Tuesday, CSIS is back at it with a discussion on future helicopter technology, featuring Dan Bailey, program director of the Army’s Joint Multi-Role/Future Vertical Lift initiatives (CSIS is also behind a big policy speech Tuesday by Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but it’s in Honolulu).

Also on Tuesday, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace hosts Iraqi Ambassador Lukman Faily, after postponing last week’s event. The International Institute for Strategic Studies talks Syria; the Woodrow Wilson Center talks about Russia, Ukraine and energy security; and CSIS also jumps into the Europe/energy security topic.

Wednesday, the Washington Institute hosts a delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Friday: fireworks cuz ‘merica.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
