Navy Missiles for the US Army?
Read about it at Commander Salamander’s blog. It’s an interesting confluence. With the bevy of high-ranking army generals who are heavily pro-China, Gen. Milley not the least of which, it’s interesting to see that they are taking the threat posed by the PRC seriously.

Finland’s Perspective – h/t Claudio
RFE/RL: Finland shares a 1,340-kilometer land border with Russia. Is that not a cause of concern if Russia is making mischief?
Toveri: The thing is that 90 percent of that border is wilderness, it’s just forest…no road, no network, no anything. Attacking with land forces across the border is mostly impossible…. They don’t have any land force [to do that]; 80 percent of their combat-capable land forces are in Ukraine. The garrisons next to the Finnish border have been emptied…. They don’t have anything.
Of course, they could look to air attacks over that long border, but our air defenses and air force are in pretty good condition, and we’ve seen the quality of the Russian Air Force in Ukraine — it’s really not too impressive. So it would be a very big risk for Russia to try something like that.
