The best links of the week:

The tragic consequences of Congo’s recent mining ban (Texas in Africa).

Public opinion in Pakistan (The AfPak Channel).

Weak ties and social change (Frontal Cortex).

Hoping for an American decline (Matthew Yglesias).

Afghan perceptions and coercive force (Abu Muqawama).

Postcards from Palestine (The Nation, via Matthew Yglesias).

Here’s to those innocent past days when finding pictures of your opponent dressed as a Nazi was a politician’s impossible dream (Joshua Green).
