Foreign Policy Blogging at OTB

by Dave Schuler on April 28, 2014

I’ve just published a foreign policy-related post at Outside the Beltway:

You and Whose Army?

We can’t and shouldn’t bear the costs of deterring Russia alone. The ball is really in the Europeans’ court on this.

Just curious, but why are your meaty, substantive foreign policy posts relegated to the “quick takes” section of the OTB front page while the Atari video game cache and the endless Clive Bundy idiocy posts appear “above the fold?”

And, of course, there’s Africa,

Oh yeah. I saw something the other day, can’t recall where, but … By 2100, the guesstimate was, China’s population would have peaked out and slipped down to maybe 1.4 billion people. India’s population might be at 1.6 billion.

Then there’s Nigeria. In 1950, it had 33 million people. At the moment, it has maybe 170 million people. “By 2100 the UN estimates that the Nigerian population will be between 505 million and 1.03 billion people (middle estimate: 730 million).” (Wikipedia)

Africa’s a large place, but they aren’t building more land. Convince me, please, that such a rise is going to be peaceful.
