Bits and Pieces - September 15, 2009

Logistics are still an enormous problem in Afghanistan.

The Federal Court of Appeals says that contractors in war zones are immune from prosecution. That should open up lots of possibilities for innovative warfare. What? Hmmmm? The Geneva Conventions?

Getting the neighboring countries involved in Afghanistan might actually have some good aspects. But there are issues of ethnicity, very complex in that region, not to mention some strange aspects of national self-interest, like relations with India, China and Russia.

Good News! Operation Rescue may be running out of money!

Pavel Podvig pretty much agrees with me on missile defense. But he says it more politely.

I hope Mohamed ElBaradei will keep speaking out even after he leaves office. Maybe particularly so then.
