It's been a busy week, for certain. All I've had time for are a few links of the day:
The US Naval Institute Blog is leading the way when it comes to analysis of the disaster relief effort in the wake of the horrifying earthquake in Haiti this past Tuesday. Of particular note is their participation in the DOD Blogger's Roundtable, during which they discussed many of the logistical difficulties at Port-au-Prince Airport.
From having participated in disaster relief before, I think it's safe to say that if counterinsurgency is the "graduate level" of war, disaster relief earns one a PhD--the fact that there's a disaster to begin with indicates that something didn't go as planned in the least. More coherent thoughts on disaster relief to follow tomorrow.
Also, check out a new blog by Kings of War's Patrick Porter, entitled "The Offshore Balancer", which I'm currently adding to the blogroll (once I fix my blogroll widget, that is)
