While some Leviathan readerships are poor, nasty, brutish, and short . A war of every man against every man. The FLUBA counts its blessings for the quality time bestowed on it:
If you have [not] sampled the inimitable Let's Fly Under the Bridge, you should. If for nothing else, for one of the best tag lines ever: "Dedicated to countering excess self-esteem by providing feedback not found in polite company."

Do we need evidence of Krugman's deep expertise on the "technical" aspects of military and strategic affairs? Well, we can start with his...
We either need a much bigger army - which means a draft... that somehow overlooks the obscure fact that during the Cold War the military was a million men larger than today-- that's two-thirds larger -- without a draft (as is pointed out by Roland Patrick every time Krugman repeats this howler.)
We'd include more but, the excess self-esteem meter's needle is close to the danger zone.
