So why did STRATEGIKON get an honourable mention in the US Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute (SSI)?
In Episode 90, Hermanos de Armas ‘Brothers at Arms’ - A tale of two countries Colombia and Venezuela (below), Dr John Bruni, David Olney and Tim Whiffen were joined by Ambassador of Colombia to Australia, H.E. Alberto José Mejia Ferrero & Prof. R. Evan Ellis, US Army War College, to discuss the complications Colombia faces with the Venezuela crises. This region is of utmost significance to Australia as our interests shift from rising tensions with the Chinese Communist Party. With the Colombian embassy being closed in Venezuela and the Venezuelan refugee crisis at its peak, it is imperative for Australian's to watch with a keen eye for how assistance can be offered to strengthen important South American relations.
