Operatie KFOR in Kosovo
During my 3 years in NATO's Strategic Headquarters I published 20 articles on the HQ's blog. HQ SACT is a transformational HQ, so I was expecting some thought provoking articles.
These article may be interesting for an audience outside the HQ, that is why after my departure I've decide to let them free on the internet.
These articles want to jumpstart your thinking and your exploration of limits of the box. Articles to move your head in agreement or to violently disagree with. History and the development of science show us that the confrontation of ideas lead to better ones.
I like to think of myself as a writer. Not that I have a special talent, but I like to write down my thought process. If I’m able to write something down, I like to think that my thinking is aligned. I also like to write off frustrations and worries. Always in a positive, thought provoking and personnel style. A style you may dislike, but nevertheless it is my way of expression.
Read. Enjoy. If you want to react, no problem. I only hope, you think about it.

Storytelling is a good way to communicate novel ideas. As a reader, you are not forced to accept them all as such while invited to make an intellectual jump into the story. The advantage for me as the writer lays in the creative element of the story. Not everything, in particular the details, must be true as long as it paints an acceptable storyline. That is why a story can be a good lead-in to explain the initial thoughts behind a new concept in development.
