13 for 13 on my NaBloPoMo! Sweet!
I’m struggling with what to write about today. I wrote an essay today on identifying the aggressor in international conflict and why it does or does not matter. I started with Thucydides, drew on Aquinas (Just War theory) and then referenced several UN treaties and articles. I wrote about whether or not the advent of so-called fourth generation warfare would have any effect on these criteria, since for the most part they refer to nations as the primary actors. My paper hasn’t been graded yet; I’ll put it up once it is. I was, however, disappointed to find that Wikipedia is still not regarded as a valid source, despite the fact that it has been shown to have no more errors than the Encyclopedia Britannica.
In other news, we gave my son Minecraft for his birthday. However, for the last few nights we haven’t been able to download it because we keep getting a message that they are updating their servers. As you can imagine, this is quite frustrating.
Other than that, nothing new and exciting!
