It is all about Asia today.

Croatia’s Russian gas imports cut by 18 percent
India turns over alleged evidence of Mumbai-gunmen’s Pakistani ties
which I’m sure will lead to more sabre rattling.
Israel hellbent on exterminating Hamas and that is like the most understated headline I’ve yet seen in relation to this. Casualties remain on the rise and I tell you, look at the Gaza strip. You are now looking at the next 25 – 30 years of Arab-Israeli conflict.

and a bit from Europe – Extremist group in Greece attacks police. I’m sure at least one blog I read (with a Greek columnist) would swear up and down that “the revolution in Greece goes on.” My own take is that certain groups in Greece recognize the benefit their causes receive from a state of such tension. Which is pretty shitty.

And domestically,
at least he’s not pro-torture – Obama staff names new CIA director. For the record, he would be reporting to Dennis Blair who was also named today.
