The America Times Welcomes Former President of SE Antonov Company, Dr. Alexander V. Los as an Honorary Advisor & Columnist

Must read

The America Times was re-born on September 11, 2021, with the goal to better inform our
leaders and policymakers of nuances, beyond conventional wisdom, to successfully address
present day “Gordion Knots,” sometimes as Alexander the Great did by cutting it and other times by tediously unraveling it. During March 2022, diplomacy is at a fever pitch in Washington D.C., Moscow, Kyiv, Vienna, Geneva, Brussels, and every major capital of the world, as Mr. Putin’s Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022 and unleashed their hell on people, infrastructure, cities and sovereignty, while Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky rose to unexpected courage and bravery – declining our offer to evacuate him, by saying: “I don’t need a ride. I need ammunition.” Everyday Ukranians have answered the call to protect their land from Russia’s yet-another attack to subjugate them at best, or exterminate them at worst. The great Russian military has run into the iron will of Ukrainians, a mistake that we expect will deny Russia peaceful sleep for at least two generations and unhappily revibrate in history.

We are honored and privileged to have Hon. Dr. Alexander V. Los – an aviation design global super-star, former president of Ukraine-owned Antonov Company, who can be the “wings” beneath our and NATO’s firepower – join the Honorary Board of Advisors & Columnists of The America Times in recognition of his excellence and record of contributions. Dr. Los’s life experiences and aviation design superstar, helps him to better decipher what is needed to deter a war, and if one exists, to overcome it without global annihilation. His knowledge and continuing work, as Chairman of ACE Air Combat Evolution Ltd, are the underbelly of war itself which is unleashed when Leaders are not appeasing anymore.  He is welcome to appear from time to time on the pages of The America Times. Reading his current contribution, we are certain, will serve to form a more perfect nation, and world, and thereby enhance both regional and global peace and security; maybe, even in dealing properly with Mr. Putin. A translated interview of Dr. Los by Defense Express was published by The America Times on October 29, 2021:

Benjamin Franklin famously said in 1787: “It’s a republic madam, if you can keep it.”
Dr. Alexander V. Los’ contributions in The America Times will help us keep our Republic.
Please enjoy his accomplishments, along with a few pictures – including, with NATO SG Jens Stoltenberg.
