Hi Peter big fan of yours thanks for doing an AMA!

3 questions if you don't mind:

  1. Do you think hypersonic missiles have the potential to make Navy's close to obsolete? Is this technology so advanced that only "top-tier" countries will be able to make them or is it likely that mid-tier countries like Iran could feasbily build them?
  2. (Asking as a Brit) If you were benevolent dictator of the UK, what moves would you make to improve our strength? Would greater spending on the Navy be a smart move for the next 20-30 years?
  3. Your views are very logical (and almost always turn out right!), but you never heard them expressed so plainly in traditional media or by politicians. Do you think this is just "PR" since the realities often don't sound nice? Or are they often genuinely ignorant of the big trends and ideas that you identify?

Looking forward to reading your new book!
