SOME RECOMMENDED READING
First, John Lewis Gaddis in Foreign Affairs on Grand strategy in a Second Term
. I find remarkably little to disagree with in this essay ( which usually indicates that I should be reading more critically) which often parallels what I wrote about the Bush administration for HNN
- minus my direct references to PNM Theory, though Gaddis has better prose and more gravitas.
Critt Jarvis, the proprietor of Systemperturbations
and technical wizard of NRSP on Mosul
. Critt it turns out, also has a background in military intelligence and his son is stationed in Mosul.
A World Without Israel
in Foreign Policy by Josef Joffe. Joffe often writes for The National Interest but publishes Die Zeit.
A reflective post with a link by JB at riting on the wall
on history's forgotten genocide
Colin Powell says goodbye
. ( Hat tip New Sisyphus
And to lighten the mood, from CNN, an amusing story
that makes a good argument for reforming the jury system.
