Act as foundations for …

A better war in Iraq

At The Corner (National Review Online), Rich Lowry put something up for examination: Lt. Col. John Nagl, author of the excellent book on counter-insurgency "Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife," has an article on the Iraq war in the Armed Forces Journal.

When in Holland, be Dutch

or anywhere else, if you are emigrating to the country, BE that country!  This is just common sense, as if you do not, you will be unable to succeed.  Not speaking the language, not learning and internalizing the social mores and traditions – these are just recipes for eventual success in your new homeland. I believe …
