Daily Dump: Lessons Not Learned, Brother of Opposition Executed, Latin America, Podcasts, Rocket Report and More – September 10, 2021

Yesterday’s Daily Dump focused on a region that in some ways has been neglected during the war on terror and today’s will be no different as The Center for Strategic and International Studies asks the question, Is Latin America Important to China’s Foreign Policy? If you care about Conflict in the Grey Zone, Great Power Competition, Political Warfare or Competition Below the Threshold, whatever you want to call it, Latin America matters. Interestingly, near the end of the latest Net Assessment Podcast, Did Anyone Win the ‘Global War on Terror’? they make the point that prior to 9/11 this was going to be a focus of the Bush Administration. Meanwhile, back in Afghanistan, the Royal United Services Institute writes: The Lessons Not Learned: Afghanistan After the Fall of Panjshir. If you like reading about tactics, this article is for you. And if you think this loss didn’t have consequences, Reuters covers that with, Brother of Afghan opposition figure executed by Taliban, family says. And for something different, how about Ars Technica’s: Rocket Report: Next Falcon Heavy launch date set, Soyuz 5 engines clear tests which provides a rundown of the latest news and information. All of this and more in Today’s Daily Dump.

Inspired by the Cognitive Raider Initiative, The Cognitive Warrior Project has put together a daily list of diverse articles that can easily be chosen from to play a part in developing a more mentally agile warfighter that embraces the adaptation required for tomorrow’s battlefield. Our intent is to create a space where you can choose one or two articles a day (about 10 minutes) instead of mindlessly scrolling social media.

As a reminder: The Cognitive Warrior Project is a private media site, and it is not affiliated in any way with Special Operation Forces, the Department of Defense or the U.S. Government. None of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, DoD or Space Force have endorsed, supported, directed, or participated in the creation of the content at this site, or in the creation of the site itself. It’s just a media site that happens to cover the U.S Military, DoD and other National Intelligence Assets.
