Bombshell: We Got This, Rexy

October 4, 2017

For special access to experts and other members of the national security community, check out the new War on the Rocks membership.

This week, the Bombshell squad goes shoulder to shoulder into the fray of referenda for the Iraqi Kurds and the Catalans in Spain, alongside a recap of the German general election.  Like many women have before us, we ask “Why Chad?” and explore the merits of the new Trump travel ban. We wonder if it was painful for Secretary Tillerson to get cut off at the knees over North Korea, and contemplate the interagency fun of  the Puerto Rico relief efforts.  Finally, we spend some quality time pondering the existential crises brought on by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s Vietnam documentary on PBS – and also our love of Ross Poldark.
