What I read this week:

India’s child coal miners.

Erik Gartzke has new research on why cyber-conflicts are likely to be limited.

“A wise investment in foreign policy can yield for a nation the same return that education does for a student. And no investment that we make that is as small as this investment puts forward such a sizeable benefit for ourselves and for our fellow citizens of the world.” – John Kerry.

Paraguay’s Argo.

Staying on the topic of Argo, Nima Shirazi has a scathing take on the film. I’ve previously defended the film’s presentation of history as acceptable for the format, but Shirazi’s piece is well argued.

Is it time to redefine “soft power”?

Why North Korea didn’t just test a Iranian nuclear device. Relatedly, Joseph Cirincione has high praise for Obama new nuclear policy team.
