Seldom is Heard a Disparaging Word
Sorry I haven’t been able to join in the comments quite as much recently as I have been dealing with sickness in the family and hospitals. Plus, our numbers have increased to the point where I devote most of my time trying to post relevant and interesting topics, and you the faithful Band of Readers & Commenter’s have responded, some negative but mostly positive.
I’m still in much awe over the success of New Wars, while realizing the quality of the comments have much to do with it. Even those who criticize help out by challenging me to write better, and work harder. Again, many thanks for your help which has been very constructive.
Sadly, I have also noticed a rise in tempers, and something which really bothers yours truly, an excessive criticizing of opinion. It has gotten so bad as to reach into my personal email and I apologize on my failure to address this problem sooner.
I have never had to ban anyone from the Blog, and have no intention to do so in this present crisis. Holding all in high esteem, I thank you that you would take the time to visit this little website and share your expertise or opinion with us, making it a better and more interesting forum of ideas. Please remember it is about the ideas, and there is nothing personal or harmful meant to anyone. Keep showing the respect to one another that you have showed me to make this a fun and learning experience.
We’ve come too far to turn back. The status quo love to see us at each other’s throats, who already consider us as fanatics, even as they shrink our so-far invincible forces, over-burdening it with excessive deployments and ancient equipment, while wasting increasingly precious funds on weapons useless for our current conflicts, or even future peer adversaries.
The blogs are leading the call for change in the military. Outside there are plenty of scoffers. Lets keep the maligners away from our discussion as we attempt to influence the influencers with our civil conversation.
Thanks again for your interest!
