What I read this week:

Joshua Foust uses the occasion of Bradley Manning’s conviction to discuss the distinction between carnage and war crimes, and why “it’s not clear that the risks associated with blanket disclosure were worth the marginal improvement of the public’s knowledge about the wars.”

Will Iranian President-elect Hassan Rohani help make progress on a nuclear deal?

Remembering Brazil’s 1993 Candelária Massacre of eight street children by police.

Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe appears set to stay in power following fraudulent elections. Before the election Crisis Group reviewed the situation and Mugabe’s hold on power.

English: ‘A dialect with an army’.

I missed this last month, but Jarrod Hayes runs down his book Constructing National Security: US Relations with India and China.

As always, links on political violence at PV @ a Glance.
