About Strategic Files
Strategic Files, hereafter simply abbreviated as SF, is NOT affiliated with any Political Group, Social-Political Movement, State Military, or Commercial Institution. SF reiterates its absolute independence from external bias imbued by partisan interests.
The following points reveal the Philosophical Groundings of SF; but they do not affect the neutrality of the posts published in the blog. Nonetheless, they provide a pointer to the lenses by which SF perceives (but not necessarily analyze) events, information and politico-military matters.
1.     SF does not subscribe to the fallacies of Moral Equivalence nor Political Correctness whose conformance beclouds rational deduction, and also biases analyses. Accordingly, SF recognizes and deeply appreciates the inherent and unique differences among races, cultures, religions, militaries, political systems and nations. In conformance, the natural and accepted hierarchy of dominance, worthiness, or superiority is recognized.
2.     SF perceives Geopolitics as composed of two distinct but interrelated domains of long-term strategic positioning (the Grand Strategy), and, transitory (evolving) calculated realignment; in pursuance of the BEST outcome POSSIBLE. SF subscribes and supports the establishment of a Global Order hinged on the dominance of Western Civilization. This means that SIF favors a unilateral Global Order with the US existing as the Sole Global Hyper-Power, which exercises Unilateral Hegemony over World Affairs. Likewise, in appreciation of the present Geopolitical Predicaments; SF conditionally supports the degradation of national sovereignty, erosion of geopolitical muscle, and destabilization of existing political orders (in pursuance of Regime Change) in Nations ruled by Regimes espousing Illiberal, Intransigent, Obsolete and Tyrannical political orders/ideologies. Otherwise stated, Nations on the Wrong Side of History, alongside adamantine Illiberal Ideologies, constitute an Axis of Evil that threatens the current peaceful and eternally progressive Global Order; and such, these threats must be countered.

3.      Regarding Militant Islamism, SF conceives it as a Clash of Ideals resulting from the incompatibility between the ideals of Puritanical Islamic Creeds (mostly Salafi-Wahhabism), and a Composed Global Order espousing the ideals of Freedom, Justice, Mutual Tolerance, Economic Liberalization, and Political Efficiency. In consideration of (Radical) Islamism as an Illiberal Religious-Political Ideology, it is part of the Axis of Evil, and must be countered with tact and force, to either contain it or expunge it from the Globe.
4.      Concerning Grand Strategy, SF attests to the nominal utility of Strategic Intelligence in conceiving a feasible Grand Strategy, which is best formulated through rational assessment of the interplay between National Interests, Geopolitical Pressures, and Effective National Strengths. Nonetheless, SF considers a nation incapacitated by an incompetent and ineffective Intelligence Community, or whose Intelligence Community is staffed by scoundrels, political operatives, or persons of inferior mentation; to be risking its National Survival in face of Existential Threats.
5.     SF recognizes the differences in mental capacity among races as measured by IQ (Intelligence Quotient) tests. The IQ scores do create a hierarchy of Human Worthiness, with people of inferior IQ being relegated to the bottom-end of the spectrum.
Ethical Guidelines
1.     SF promotes civility, and this is reflected in its guideline of not using undue insinuations, inappropriate sarcasm, and unfitting condescension.
2.      SF strictly prohibits acts that may foment invalid insurrections, or provoke Violent Revolutions.
3.      SF totally invalidates expressions which unduly approve the suffering, misery, and/or death of person(s) or communities.
4.     SF does not use foul language, explicit expressions, nor Sanitize bad language using asterisks (**).
