this & that
- IR theory for lovers
- This thread on Somewhere in Africa is lots of fun if you've spent time in East Africa (HT: Professor Blattman)
- The Lobbyist formerly known as the Lobbyist for the Dark Side's major project is ba-ack.
- Nuclear submarines collide. But, you know, no big deal.
- Apparently precision is the new black in the eastern DRC, because we learned on Monday that the Rwandan and Congolese armies have completed 65% of their mission to eradicate the FDLR. A cynic might wonder whether the Rwandan army's recent rape spree (Which, for the record, the DRC denies, denies, denies. If only the government's word were as credible as that of Human Rights Watch.) wouldn't mean that they'd lose a few percentage points there, but I'm trying to be more positive about the whole situation. Springtime is coming.
- Ah, democracy.
