Middle Eastern Policy

Captain's Quarters: "The Times of London reports that Israel's new minister of defense, former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, has drawn up plans for a massive strike on Gaza. Instead of police actions on limited scales, Barak would launch an all-out war on Hamas in the Strip, now that Fatah has no assets remaining there -- and would intend on wiping out all Islamist offensive capability in the region."

Meanwhile Don Surber writes, "You can't make this stuff up. The Jerusalem Post reported: 'Looters raid Arafat's home, steal his Nobel Peace Prize.'"

Be sure to read the whole article.

Juan Cole: "Highly paid 'security guards' play an essential role in the US war against Iraqi guerrillas. They form a paramilitary, which has inevitably taken great numbers of casualties (they sometimes actually guard US troops!) Turns out that they have been taking casualties at far higher rates than the Pentagon or its private contractors have ever let on."
