We don't "do" opinion and politics on this blog. At least, we endeavor to keep away from them. It is not that we don't have opinions or that we're not interested in politics. Our opinions are quite simply not interesting to others and any political analysis we could try would be banal beyond belief.
Here's a blog, called "Global Power Europe" that deftly mixes opinion and analysis. It is mainly about European defense, foreign policy and geopolitics. It is written by James Rogers, of Cambridge University, England, and occasional guest writers.
The posts on Global Power Europe certainly express opinions. Be ready for a challenge. They are worth reading because they are written with style, thought through and well researched.
