Here's what we think is going to happen in 2018
2017 has been a roller coaster — both in the US and abroad, the year ends with the world in a very different place than it was 12 months ago.
However, as has become our tradition, the Business Insider Military and Defense team is going to predict the future.
In the past, we've done well. Last year we correctly identified many of the problems the world would face in 2017, including some that directly challenged the new US president — Donald Trump.
It's clear Trump will have more decisions and crises to face in the upcoming year. To be sure, other global leaders will as well, but the "America First" president has proved to be unpredictable, if nothing else.
Your guides for this year's journey are Peter Jacobs, Alex Lockie, Christopher Woody, Daniel Brown, David Choi, and Ben Brimelow.
Here's what we think will happen in 2018:
- Russian artists turned Putin into pop art in a new exhibition — and the photos are curious
- The 8 biggest global threats to watch in 2018
- Tillerson's new North Korea strategy praised by China and Russia — but undermined by Trump
