Welcome to The View from the Front. My name is Stan and this is the Aug. 31st edition. 

If you just happened to stumble by, let me say a quick word about what we’re doing here.

For those who don’t know, my name is Stan R. Mitchell, and I’m a prior Marine and journalist.

Every week, I primarily do three things with my podcast:

Take a listen to the podcast. I really hope you get something out of it.

Please note: There is an un-edited, AI-generated transcript, that you can find by clicking the Transcript button at upper right, under the podcast player device.

Timestamp: 1:00:39 seconds. Motivation and wisdom section.

Source notes:

Is Russia in more trouble in Ukraine than most people know? And could time actually be on Ukraine's side? Plus, six interesting things worth pointing out.

Opinion: Ukraine is crossing Russia’s ‘red lines’ with impunity. It’s a lesson for Biden.

It seems hard to remember now, but at the beginning of this conflict, the West — and the White House, in particular — was desperately worried that attacks inside Russia would cross a “red line” that would lead Russian President Vladimir Putin to dramatically up the ante, perhaps even to employ nuclear weapons. More recent experience suggests that, for all his bluster, Putin is rational enough not to escalate a limited war that he is already losing into a wider war with NATO that he cannot possibly win.

China hoped Fiji would be a template for the Pacific. Its plan backfired.

How to Address the Racism at the Heart of Japan-South Korea Tensions

Statement from Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III on United States Trilateral Summit with Japan and the Republic of Korea

US Marines identify 3 killed in Osprey aircraft crash in Australia

Ospreys are safer than you think (story halfway down page).

Terrorist groups are expanding in Mali as peacekeepers leave, U.N. experts warn

That’s it for this edition.

As a reminder, please be kind and try your best to love your fellow Americans.

So many men and women have sacrificed, fought, and died to keep this country together the past 240-plus years. Please work daily to unite our country again. The vast majority of Americans are decent, loving, great people.

Also, please try to be a better person each and every day. Try to be kinder on social media and how you interact with others with whom you disagree.

Please join me again in our next episode, and please stay safe until then.

And with that, I’m out.
