My reading list

Oh my, how the time does fly! I'm going to have to leave you with a list of articles that peaked my interest today. There are quite a few of them, so I hope you'll understand why I could not take the time to write about each one individually. Time got away from me, and I have to write something today. You know, my promise to myself. ;)

PS. If you try a link to CENTCOM and it does not work, just put the title of the link into google. You should be able to find it that way. This is FOURTH time (GRRRRR) I've had to do this.
