The visit to Vientiane was a a welcome repose from the hurly-burly in Hanoi. I enjoyed the riverbank, visiting a few pagodas and the food. Some comments on the photo's. As I learn how Laos works, I will have to add comments.

+Geert Vansintjan Not a good precedent to start with utter brutality. It would have been better for the Libyan people to rise above the dictatorship of Ghadaffi and provide judgement through the legal system. Although, it is not clear if most Libyans approved of the killing by a few without a trial.

I am normally skeptic concerning military adventures. In this case, my gut feeling is: what took them so long? I might change my mind on it when know more about it, what do you think?

+Geert Vansintjan This is not the first time. The US assisted Uganda in a 2008 offensive against the LRA...

The effort was a disaster and the LRA hit back hard within the DRC, leading to the "DRC Christmas massacres": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Christmas_massacres_%28Congo%29

I hope the renewed efforts are more successful.
