Rootless Cosmopolitan

I was turned on the other day to the fact that Time Magazine‘s Tony Karon has a blog about foreign affairs, Rootless Cosmopolitan. It’s really good. Good enough that a ten day old post on the subject “What’s Iraq Actually About Now?” is very much worth your time. It’s an excellent question to ponder when you hear debate about whether or not the surge is “working” — working to do what? And why?

At any rate, if Time were smart they’d incorporate this content into their Middle East blog, though I think you could safely classify a lot of Karon’s posts as “Too Hot for Time.”
