Patrick Ryan, president of the Tennessee World Affairs Council.
With hot spots around the world, Patrick Ryan, president of the Tennessee World Affairs Council, says that as soon as one problem is addressed, another manifests itself.“It’s like playing a game of Whack-a-Mole at the arcade,” the retired Naval Lt. Commander told members of the Rotary Club of McMinnville. “If you hit one issue on the head, then another pops up in its place.”Ryan, who heads the TWAC which aims to educate Tennessee citizens on global concerns and issues, assessed the top hot spots around the world the United States has to face. He noted he was only scratching the surface in his address since there are so many problems around the globe.“No one has all the answers,” he observed.
