Münchner Sicherheitkonferenz


Time for the annual Münchner Sicherheit, liebchen.

Held in München (naturlich), the Konferenz has become the major security policy conference worldwide. Each year it brings together senior figures from around the world to engage in an intensive debate on current and future security challenges. The aim is to maintain this high international standard and raise its profile still further.

The Konferenz main gig is to undress the main security issues au courant. To debate and analyze the main security challenges, while at the same time constantly looking ahead so as to take up future issues at an early stage. This includes broadening the range of themes covered, in line with the concept of networked security.

The intention is to ensure that the Munich Security Conference remains the most important independent forum for the exchange of views by international security policy decision-makers, nicht wahr?

I really wish I'd been invited to this. Only an hour and a half drive. Well, less than that the way I drive on the Autobahn ;)

2011 celebrates the centennial of two facets of American greatness: the Colt M1911 .45ACP pistol, and President Ronald Wilson Reagan. Happy birthday, Ronaldus Maximus!

PM Cameron gave a landmark speech at Munich. I hope Europe was listening.
