It Could Have Been Much Worse:

I rarely visit Politico but today I was alerted to Ben Smith's mention of The Little War that Shook the World by Clinton-era State Department staffer Ron Asmus. I strongly dispute the author's assignment of causes and blame for the conflict, and I don't think a participant in the Kosovo fiasco would be the most dependable analyst for the events of August 2008, but he does reveal that things very nearly became much worse.
