Canberra- – There is a long history of misconceived and over-reaching foreign military intervention in the Middle East, and it is to be hoped that US President Barack Obama’s decision to wage war against the Islamic State will not prove to be another. No terrorist group more richly deserves to be destroyed outright than these marauding, genocidal jihadists. But as the US-led mission is currently conceived and described, it is not clear whether its objectives are achievable at acceptable costs in terms of time, money, and lives.

Ambassador Patricia Haslach administered the oath of service to 66 new Peace Corps Volunteers at the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa today. With this new group, there are now 231Peace Corps Volunteers in Ethiopia providing English language education, combating HIV/AIDS,preventing environmental degradation,and promoting food security. The Volunteers are locatedin Amhara, Oromia, Tigray, and SNNP Administrative Regions.
