Monday and it sure feels like a Monday..
Talks in Serbia to Form New Government
This has been covered by someone else on my blogroll, Seesaw over at Red Pen, (also of Jugoslavija) a couple days ago but I think it needs wider discussion. This story has some legs in the Middle East and South Asia. I think it's really bad if such a thing is under consideration. The Balkans doesn't have a lot to do with the Middle East, and it's unfair to use the people there who have frankly suffered enough as if they were human shields. I can predict that the good will the U.S. has in the region would suffer, and that is a shame because the Balkans region is one of the regions where U.S. influence has been in many ways positive. I really don't want to see such a thing going on, it's not like the U.S. doesn't have aircraft carriers and such to use if it were neccessary to attack Iran. I question whether it's neccessary, or advisable, or cute or funny or in any way a good idea.
U.S. may be planning to strike at Iran from Bulgaria, or Romania
