Of Interest

-A piece by John Brown (Sr) sent by PDPBR JB on what it is that Cultural Attaches do. This includes milking cows and accepting roosters on behalf of American honor. Xiexie John.

-A piece in Foreign Policy called "Straight outta Kandahar" about how tactics in the fight against inner city gangs is slowly being applied to the fight against the Taliban. Not just old LA style SWAT tactics, but rather the insight of David Kennedy whose tactics focus on microtargeting and smart policing. For the first time in a long while, I actually have a little hope for the fight in Afghanistan.
