The Hopeless State of State – Taking Gen. Zinni’s Provocative Bait
Posted by David Shorr

Here is the intro to a guest post on Washington Note today:

In his recent presentation at New America Foundation, retired General Tony Zinni made a number of consciously radical proposals to enhance America's smart power and boost our government's effectiveness in achieving the country's objectives around the world.

General Zinni's comments compelled the State Department to officially respond on this blog.

Mainly Gen. Zinni's radical ideas called for putting foreign policy responsibilities into military hands to an even greater extent than they already are. I don't think this is really the way to go, but it's a tempting approach because it exploits -- albeit for convenience sake and choosing the path of least resistance, rather than difficult change -- undeniable strengths and advantages of the military.

For the whole thing, go here.

I can say this situation is very dangerous. And this Israelis are not playing with fire. They are carrying out a war of terror against the Palestinian people and their leadership. And the Israeli's are trying to sabotage every single effort, even the efforts of Gen. Zinni, to safeguard the peace process...

The Moray comes in a unique military style roll up case which houses the Replica Lancaster Watches and all the accessories. It includes a wide set of accessories like an extra butterfly clasp, two additional leather straps, and tools to change the strap and size the bracelet. All of the accessories, warranty card, and spare links can fit in the roll up case and are secured by a leather strap. The Replica Gucci Watches comes with a lot of accessories and this is a nice and accessible way to store them.A word of advice: the Replica Emporio Armani Watches I received had never had the bracelet removed, and I must admit that I snapped a lug screw clean out of the fitting when trying to remove it. After speaking directly with Steve at Benarus, I learned that a defect at the factory left some of the Replica Boucheron Watches with loc-tite on the lug screws. This is an unfortunate way to get a Replica Burberry Watches -- second-hand deal not-withstanding. Steve was kind enough to send a set of lug screws via mail, and in the process, portrayed one of the best reasons to consider a good boutique brand for your next Replica Calvin Klein Watches: top notch customer service. A couple of emails and what could have been a nightmare for a buyer new to the brand turned into an opportunity for a repeat purchase. Once the new lug bars were installed, I quickly removed the bracelet and tried out the included leather straps. My set came with a thick high tan leather (almost a suede finish), and a classy black alligator strap. Both are very nice, but this Replica DKNY Watches is best on the bracelet. It is fantastically well built: a 5 link screwed in design that is quiet and has yet to pull any hairs.I also tried the Replica Citizen Watches on a run down Hirsch Liberty (Replica Givenchy Watches), and a Maratac Elite composite strap. The Benarus Moray seems to look good on anything. After many changes (the new screws are holding up brilliantly), I have settled on the bracelet; it is one of the few examples that would be comparable to the bracelet on the Seiko Monster (SKX779) and thanks to screwed links (not collar pins), the Benarus bracelet is far easier to size. The case is likely my favorite part of this Replica Guess Watches; nothing I have ever had compares to the shape and finish of the Moray case.
