nytimes: robert kaplan on america's grunts all over the place

nov 29th

i had thought kaplan was an older man, but he's only apparently in his 40's. i found his atlantic monthly report on pakistan especially hard-hitting. i am not sure i buy his theories, but his reporting is vivid and forceful.

here's a review of his book on american troops on the ground all over the place.
