This blog has gotten over 300 hits during the past 24 hours, thanks mainly to a link to my Saudi Arabia post from Matthew Yglesias. I haven't seen the details on all, but I did add Singapore to the list of countries whose abbreviations I've noticed on my site stats. Others on the list since this blog started are the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Russia, The Netherlands, Australia, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Spain, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, and the Czech Republic.

This post on the Thomas Friedman debate speaks to an interesting point: Why has opposition to American foreign policy become the litmus test for liberalism? The idea that American involvement overseas is often benevolent may be abused for propaganda purposes and serve to cover up actual abuses, but liberals shouldn't allow that to box us into a corner with some of the world's oppressive regimes who also happen to be disliked by conservatives.
