Anti-war movement gearing up on Afghanistan

Via the Christian Science Monitor: Antiwar activists split over Obama's Afghanistan policy.

Related, Professor Nacos opposes the Obama administration's outreach to "moderate" Taliban.

On an off-topic note, because I want to jot the note somewhere, I think we can connect SecDef Gates' plans for the defense department budget to Columbia ROTC advocacy, to wit, if weapons systems and set-piece warfare are being de-emphasized while human-centric irregular warfare is being elevated, then the individual intellect, education, creativity and flexibility of junior leaders are paramount. In that light, we ought to be able to connect present-future military needs and foci with Columbia ROTC.
