Newropeans Magazine – The Unenviable Paradoxes of Iraq! I used to work with Agron Ferati, who is extraordinarily brilliant. He’s recently begun doing more press, in a risky and desperate attempt to get more aid into Iraq. I thought his use of the term “humanitarian surge” was an evocative and pithy description of what we’ll need to do there. Agron is also from Kosovo, so he knows his way around sectarian violence.
