What I read this week:

How Putin distorts the rhetoric of the Responsibility to Protect to justify Russia’s mission in Crimea.

Ray Kwong passes along a humorous guide on bluffing your way though conversations on Crimea.

A 1940s French board game on tactics for successful colonialism.

What is behind Brazil’s timid approach to protests in Venezuela? Also on Brazil, questions about the South American giant’s approach to state-building in Africa (via Daniel Solomon).

A long New York Review of Books piece on the prospects of Scottish independence (via Peter Beinart).

Anyway, if Scotland leaves the UK, how should the Union Jack change? I’m partial to Number 4, personally.

While outdated now, on Monday morning I complied a long list of news and analysis on the Russian military intervention in Crimea.
