In case you missed it

Foreign Policy magazine published its 10 stories you might have missed in 2005 and its quite an eye-opener. Among the findings:

  • Europe has a zombie constitution. Yikes!

  • The War on Drugs wasn’t a complete failure. We trained lots of South American mercenaries who can now help us fight in Iraq. And the best part is that no one in the U.S. notices or cares if they die.

  • The possible successor to North Korea’s dictator is a huge NBA fan. Can anybody say Ambassador Michael Jordan? Who needs missile defense when you have a shyhook jump shot?

  • Blame Canada and their 24 percent increase in Greenhouse gas emissions for global warming. Stick that in your Kyoto Protocol and smoke it!

  • You can say anything you want at a Pentagon press briefing on Friday afternoon and no one gives a ripshit.

  • Terrorists like to play volleyball.

  • Something is happening in India.

  • Missile defense wasn’t a COMPLETE waste of $92 billion.

  • Buying oil futures for 2030 might be a good idea.

  • 119,247 veterans of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have sought VA healthcare. But why don’t we report more good news out of Iraq?
