Been a while since I did one of these…
Matthew Engel calls for an end to the war on drugs.
- Albor Ruiz on the constitution-trampling excesses of the Honduran military.
- In Afghanistan, human rights workers call for more aid, not more troops.
- Jess McCabe finds an interesting study into the differences between feminist & non-feminist women’s views of men; discovers proof that feminists don’t actually hate men.
- Are we starting to see some sanity from this government over the number of women it imprisons? Only took ’em 11 years..
- Juan Cole looks at the similarities between Sarah Palin & Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (no, really).
- Since the Foreign Affairs Select Committee wants Britain to stop trying to fight a war on drugs in Afghanistan whilst also fighting a war on the Taliban, I thought I’d link to an older post by Joshua Foust on how our governments’ opium obsession is making things worse.
- And in today’s End of Civilisation Watch: Afghan youngsters are listening to Shakira.
