"Thanks for the analysis. By opening the door to militating against cyclical violence and intractability, the report confronts one of Africa's most malignant problems. However, I find it appalling that the report has blinded its eye to the…"

"Thanks for a cogent synopsis of the report. It seems to confirm that there is no quick fix; there is a political/social justice element to any fix; and violence begets more violence. We need a US Department of Peace!"

This report appears to be different - in a very positive way. Actually I am tempted to believe that this report is a breakthrough for the discourse among the big and established players in global security. Here is my take.
