A note for the intrepid commenters. Lifefyre, our comments system, is down. I've been told it's in relation to problems with Amazon's cloud servers, and that they're being worked on now.
In the meantime, feel free to send comments my way at jlucasgreen(at)gmail(dot)com. I'll be posting followups to Etch-A-Mitt, the Terrible Generals post, and on why the foreign policy questions are terrible.
