Trump's Election may well usher in a world full of surprises. Here, in a Moscow pub today, an artist painted a decidedly youthful Trump and Putin on the wall, standing boldly together. (Picture courtesy Alexander Zemlianichenko/Associated Press via The NYT).
Trump is going to make all our lives more exciting. Maybe not better, but more exciting.
Knowing the US Presidential Election result has strongly inflenced this month's Report's title and initial wording. Since Trump's Win I have changed the title to: "Actors and Some Influences on Trump’s Naval Policies".
Trump's excesses and statements have done much damage in the usually subtle and understated Asia-Pacific region. Philippine President Duterte is, of course, the unsubtle, but highly intelligent exception.
I sent the completed Report to Donors as a WORD attachment (the usual manner) on Friday 11 November 2016.
