Champion Aspirations for Human Dignity

The White House released the 2006 National Security Strategy.

From the introduction:

The fundamental character of regimes matters as much as the distribution of power among them. The goal of our statecraft is to help create a world of democratic, well-governed states.

If it was not obvious before, it ought to be quite overt now: The Kissinger/Scowcroft realist wing of the Republican party is nonextant. Realism now plays an abiding second banana to Neo-Wilsonian Idealism.

Elsewhere in the paper, some things remain the same: The paper reaffirms preemptive war -- although I think it better labeled preventative war. While others change: Iran moves from hardly a mention in the 2002 strategy to earning we face no greater challenge from a single country than from Iran.

Also, we released Network Manager 0.6.1 earlier in the week.

We just rolled NetworkManager 0.6.0, a truly exciting release, replete with WPA support and much more.
