Another Podcast with Tucker

I did another podcast with David Tucker about all the complications of the Northwest Frontier (i.e. Afghanistan, Pakistan).  Needless to say, the situation is getting worse and our choices aren't getting any better.  If this keeps up, my next conversation with Tucker will be even less optimistic.

Again, that was really good.

We read stuff like this: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/29/opinion/29kristof.html that says that we should build schools, not send more soldiers. The flaw being that schools get blown up, which Kristoff admits is a problem.

Then I was surprised to read this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8329129.stm,
about paying off the Taliban, as we paid off people in Iraq and I did not know we were not doing that in Afghanistan. This is, perhaps, a means of gaining defectors? I hope it works.

Thanks!
