  • Greg Sheridan puts a strong case for the Rudd Government's┬ádecision to have a permanent Australian ambassador to the Vatican. I was unaware of the intriguing China angle.
  • US academic John Mueller, a consistent critic of the counter-terrorism-industrial complex, asssesses the costs and benefits of US homeland security. Lots of lessons here for Australia.
  • I understand Telstra has very cool video conferencing set-ups in their offices around Australia, similar to this. Helps cut down on air fares too.
  • Greece has passed to Israel sensitive information about Russia's Patriot-like surface-to-air missile system. Could come in handy if Iran acquires that system. (H/t Missile monitor)
