Saber rattling has been taken to a new level this week with President Trump's "fire and fury" threat. We have analysis of Kim Jong Un's possible motivation and that of the Trump administration. As fears of nuclear war spread across the globe — and especially throughout the United States, its territories, and its allies — just how effective is the highly expensive, often lauded U.S. missile defense system? How is it that Trump's national security advisor has connections to George Soros? Also, Trump declares a national emergency over the opiod crisis. Drug distribution and the U.S. transportation system. Protests held in Charlottesville, Virginia over the city's plan to remove a statue of General Lee. More police state drills blurring the lines between domestic police and military. Dangerous legislative attack on the First Amendment pending in Congress, along with another bill dealing with the privatization of rest areas along U.S. interstate highways. Also, the kangaroo court system, the Benghazi e-mail search, and more. Listener phone calls throughout the show.

Civilian-Military Integration
September 1994, OTA-ISS-611

Excerpt p. 14-15: (emphasis added)


Definitions are essential--not only for the term "civil-military integration," but also for the various related activities, such as "commercial goods" and "commercial services." Policy formulation for CMI has been handicapped by the lack of a standard definition of CMI. OTA developed a working definition of CMI (see chapter 3), and definitions of commercial goods and services (see chapter 4).

In this study, Civil-Military Integration (CMI) is defined as the process of uniting the Defense Technology and Industrial Base (DTIB) and the larger Commercial Technology and Industrial Base (CTIB) into a unified National Technology and Industrial Base (NTIB). Under CMI, common technologies, processes, labor, equipment, material, and/or facilities would be used to meet both defense and commercial needs.
