Kristof: Are the risks greater if we launch missiles, or if we continue to sit on our hands?

And no this is not Bill Kristol, it's Nicholas Kristof. Part of my frustration is that so many people appear to be forming their opinions based on the glib views of posters on 'Datalounge' or their friends on Facebook, instead of journalistic sources. Kristof has been called one of the great moralists of his generation. This short piece encapsulates the angles of possible U.S. intervention very well. It should be required reading, particularly for those who oppose a US bombing campaign because they promote "peace", or insist on comparing the situation to Iraq

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
