[haw-info] HAW Notes 7/6/12: Links to recent articles of interest

Note:  In addition to these article links, which we've been sending more or less biweekly for the past few years, we will soon begin sending a more intensive mailing called Iran War Weekly to our e-mail list, at least for a while this summer.  It is produced by Frank Brodhead, a historian and longtime antiwar activist, and is beginning to achieve wide on-line distribution.

Thanks to Rusti Eisenberg, Rosalyn Baxandall, and James Swarts for suggesting articles that are included in the following list.  Suggestions can be sent to jimobrien48@gmail.com.
