Like most NYT articles, it is long on talk, and short on money lines, but this one does have some cache.
Until Thursday, the Russian military actions had been largely confined to

Hello to the CCCP (USSR to you non-Cold War types…)
I’ve been spreading my opinion for a while, now, that our friend Putin is 100% KGB CCCP, and is nothing like the “New Russian” that the leftist media would have us believe.

For two generations of Sungs and Ils, the North Korean dictators’ club has been alternately propped-up, and reigned in by their much larger relation, China.

The North is shouting its biggest threats yet, and seems

From Businessweek, January 31, 2013.
As snipers fanned out over the rooftops of the Alpine resort and the Swiss Armed Forces rolled miles of barbed wire through the town, officers had more than the security of Mario Draghi and Lloyd Blankfein in mind. They were also preparing for European chaos should the euro ever collapse.
At their annual exercise in September, the Swiss army drilled for an imagined conflict between two neighboring states (the landlocked nation borders
