Thomas Barnett: TED talk

Thomas Barnett (author of "The Pentagon's New Map") gave an entertaining talk for TED. I listened to it via podcast, but re-watched it later, since it was clear from the audio that it was pretty visual. The US has an unstoppable military force. But what comes after it works its magic? You can agree or disagree with his prescriptions, but at least it's a start on discussing a new strategy for the US Military. The book (and apparently his newer book) have a lot more detail and are well worth reading.)
