Barbara Walter on why Assad will fight to the end.

Inside the Navy’s aircraft carrier deployment budget gamble.

When democratization produces drug violence.

The hidden story of airpower in Libya (via Shashank Joshi).

This was published back in December, but The Economist’s story on the 1860s War of the Triple Alliance is excellent.

Reader answers to my question at Political Violence @ a Glance on Iran’s amateurish fakes.
