Personal and academic blog. Explores the borderlands between rhetoric, politics and intelligence.


As I wrote yesterday there is a strange paradoxical thing about peacekeeping/nation-building and soldiers. I just found out today that the former UN chairman Dag Hammarskjold said something along these lines:

"Peacekeeping is not a soldier's job, but only a soldier can do it."

I am as of today beginning to find out what role the military plays in nationbuilding in Iraq. Yeah, for an essay, that's right. Not just for fun.
