The first details what was for me a new, humanistic perspective of why the US should stay in Afghanistan. Though Obama decided long ago to send 17,000 more troops there, I still have been frequently debating the merits of this decision. It’s an interesting article.

The second argues for a dramatic restructuring of our local government institutions. Inefficiency is ubiquitous, and vast improvements can be made in almost every state. Definitely check out this short article.

The first makes many undeniable arguments in favor of remaining in Afghanistan. A classmate of mine told me that we will probably have long-term bases there to protect our national interest, and to help stability and democracy in the region. I’m beginning to think this is not a bad idea.  Thoughts? On either article?
