101st

Great story in the NYTimes about how the 101st has succeeded in post-war Iraq. Note this bit: “The 101st has also established an employment office for former Iraqi military officers, found grain silos for local farmers and trained the local police.” We really need a colonial office to handle these sort of things, although of course we could never actually call it that. Also, note to Ramesh-the Marine commander is a Princeton grad: “An Army general who holds an advanced degree in international relations from Princeton, General Petraeus was steeped in nation-building before he arrived in Iraq.”
