Notes and Links

Notes of the day:

Iraq to Re-Instate 20,000 officers” – All of this was avoidable. P6 – Prior Planning Prevents Piss-Poor Performance.

Huge Iceberg Breaks Off Antarctica” – I finished Guns, Germs, and Steel a while back, and one point I took from the book – humans, at best, can adapt to geography and the surrounding settings. With all the vaunted technology we possess, can we deal with a current slowdown? We have ships which no longer require wind, yes, but ocean currents are still one of the most essential processes on the planet.

Ignoring this is stupid.

U.S. rice doesn’t help struggling Haitian farmers” – American agricultural policy ≠ American foreign policy. Unless this is American foreign policy, which really wouldn’t be that surprising. The foreign aid budget of this country could be spent in such better ways instead of the waste that it is.
