Friday’s Reading List

By Taylor Marvin

What I read this week:

Fred Kaplan, Spencer Ackerman and Mark Bowden talk the foreign policy debate. See Erica Chenoweth and Oliver Kaplan as well.

US-Russian nuclear cooperation is not dead. Relatedly, the possibility of eliminating Russia’s nuclear-armed Moscow ABM defense.

Hyping AirSea Battle (via Jonathan Rue).

Why Romney is the war candidate. Daniel Larison has more. While it’s important to take anything a candidate says debating with a grain of salt, I think Romney’s absolute refusal to even consider the possibility of a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran is worrying on a signaling basis.

With 60,000 dead, Mexicans wonder why drug war doesn’t rate in presidential debate.

Broken BRICs: “the notion of wide-ranging convergence between the developing and the developed worlds is a myth.”

The risks of ignoring strategic insolvency (via Matthew Hill).

Psychology and security: Enduring questions, different answers.

The Civil Wars – C’est La Mort.
