A presentation by Global HeavyLift Managing Member Myron D. Stokes at the Jonathan Club, Los Angeles, in May 2007 outlining a comprehensive and long-term strategy for establishing a US/NATO-controlled heavylift industry -- the movement of goods via air too large or outsized to fit in any door of any 747 or similar size freighter -- using commercial/military variants of the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III airlifter. The Heavy and Outsized sector is currently controlled by Russian and Ukraine utilizing commercial versions of the Antonov AN-124 military airlifter

  • JUNE 1940 THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN Were it not for the US escorted Liberty ship convoys and Lend-Lease, Goerings Operation Sea Lion would have succeeded in defeating Great Britain, thus ensuring an entirely different outcome of World War II. Conversely, control of a nations global supply chain is thus rendered an imperative to maintain economic and national security.

  • May 1943 Professor Barnes Wallace, inventor of the extraordinarily strong geodetic aircraft structure for the initially indispensable Vickers-Armstrong Wellington bomber, understood the critical role technological innovation would play if the war with outcome not certain for the allied forces in 1943 were to be won. His development of a cylindrical spinning bomb dropped from Avro Lancasters of the famed RAF No. 617 Dam Buster squadron at precisely 220 mph, an altitude of 60ft and a 400 rpm backwards spin over water, breached the Moehner and Eder dams in Germany while damaging the Sorpe; disrupting albeit temporarily hydroelectric power generation and war materiels manufacturing in the Ruhr Valley - -Commentary based on May 2003 analysis Super-Globalism: Strategies For Maintaining a Robust Industrial Base Through Technological, Policy and Process Improvement eMOTION!

  • Spring 1943 Pacific Theater of Operations Quite aware of the post-Midway strategic, tactical and supply disadvantages under which his 5th and 13th Air Forces (USAAF) operated out of Port Moresby, New Guinea among other Pacific bases against a thoroughly entrenched enemy at Rabaul and separated only by the Stanley mountain range, General George C. Kenney ordered Douglas A-20 pilot extraordinaire Paul P.I. Gunn (a best friend of my Godfather, M/Sgt Charles H. Jackson who was not only a top turret gunner on the B-17F Captain and The Kids, but armorer for P-38 Aces Dick Bong and Tommy McGuire) whom Kenney called his All around fixer and gadgeteer to give him an advantage. Gunn did exactly that, as demonstrated by the emergence of B-25 and A-20 medium bombers with outrageously devastating firepower. Not the least of which were Mitchells with 12 .50 cal. Guns in the nose, H variants of this plane with a 75mm cannon, along with the perfecting of skip bombing techniques in anti-shipping duties 5 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC
  • May 2007 Economic War A state of affairs wherein the trade policies, financial and technological resources of an entire country are structured and applied so as not only to render industries of that country hyper-competitive against those of the target country, but to eliminate them. This requires a response based on acute recognition of an economic and sociological reality by crafting strategies that include trade policy modification and a resurgence of technological innovation to protect yes protect the all important industrial base. Without which no country can survive Economic war is always waged first Sun Tzu 6 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC
  • The Three Battles of Economic War According to Dr. Ronis, in the paper Total Life Cycle Management: A Different Approach to War, quot;The near battle is where the troops are engaged in daily combat. For a team engaged in product development, the near battle is in the daily designing, developing, engineering, and manufacturing of the product. The near battle can be described as a product being made and sold in the marketplace on a day-by-day basis in competition with global competitors. quot;The rear battle is the infrastructure, or foundation needed to support a continuous near battle. This includes enablers in the environment such as well-educated and trained people, including leadership, well designed processes, and the development and inculcation of doctrine or governing and operating principles and the associated accountabilities required. quot;The deep battle is the infrastructure needed to fight future battles. For product teams, this is the investment in future infrastructures, such as R&D or advanced manufacturing, the development of process, holistic management and the skills and learning which are required for the future of all employees or soldiers. 7 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC
  • Three Battles (contd) quot;The rules of war say that all three battles must be fought at the same time, so leadership must align itself, the behavior of all its people and the organizations capability as the three battlefields are planned for, strategies are determined, and executed. The three battles are viewed as a system. quot;Conversely, the utilization of war strategies and tactics by a company or a country seeking dominance in a given industrial sector demands a response in kind. Failure to do ensures the ignominy of defeat. 8 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC
  • Critical Environmental Factors U.S. has lost control of global shipping and emerging heavy-lift industries, causing concerns regarding national security, and has already had negative impact on U.S. largest industries It is imperative that all concerned recognize that the industrial base is inseparable from the defense industrial base U.S. Air Force has been involved with non-financial support since 2001 Utilization of (B)C-17 capabilities never before used in industry U.S. is in economic war with other world powers and this initiative begins the process of initiative improving U.S. industrial base survivability in two specific markets; heavy and outsized markets; and its Short/Austere Project market subset. Both served by Boeings C-17 Globemaster Boeing C- Commercial Variant the BC-17. BC- 9 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC
  • The Global Heavylift Market U.S. Air Force Scenarios HOM/SAM HOM (Heavy Outsized Market) Currently in the control of the Russians/Ukrainians (AN-124s) SAM (Short Austere Market) Estimated at a total of more than $380 billion worth of projects in oil and gas exploration, mining, space exploration, etc. and it will grow Above and beyond the current air cargo market of $137 billion RTKs (revenue ton kilometers) Business cases,(17) conducted by the A.F. work well for the commercial version of the C-17, the BC-17. Further, the AN-124 can compliment the BC-17 in SAM missions. 10 May 9, 2007 Copyright 2005 GHH, LLC

Korea either own or control the bulk of the worlds shipping Chinas burgeoning influence both economically and militarily render it capable of disrupting the ocean-borne global supply chain for U.S. industry at will.
