I’m inclined to think that military force will follow humans wherever we go. That doesn’t mean working towards limits on it is a bad idea, though.
“There’s still a lot of wiggle room” in the administration’s statement on military space, said analyst Victoria Samson with the private Center for Defense Information. “But just the sheer fact that they are discussing it represents a real shift from the Bush administration.”
This might actually be good news for the law and order crowd, although supporters of human rights won’t be so happy:
The usual post-soviet geekery:
- Nato has ‘no will’ to admit Georgia or Ukraine
- Russia plans base in Georgia rebel region:report
- (Kosovo) B92: Situation in northern Mitrovica calm after blasts
And finally, you know I can’t resist a good crime story, especially when it makes the police look like idiots:
The boy, who has been charged as a juvenile for impersonating an officer, walked into the Grand Crossing District station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave., dressed in a Chicago police uniform, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The boy, who reported for duty about 1:30 p.m., partnered with another police officer for about five hours.
The boy identified himself as an officer from another district but was detailed for the day to Grand Crossing and also was savvy enough to sign out a police radio and a ticket book, according to a source. The source also said the boy went on traffic stops with the officer he went on the street with.
