Moved to its own site (from Chinese Defence Today Forum - the old one's still there and will continue to be updated) and reworked with a very new look and some new features; now at The Norfolk Blog.

I occasionally accidentally say something intelligent over at my own http://strayvoltage.blogspot.com

I try not to make it a habit.

No promises on saying anything intellectually stimulating but I try to get a couple of Instruments of National Power issues posted here every week:

A mild plug for my own blog, www.dirtywaterguy.blogspot.com

Many random thoughts.

Bossf51 has several...perhaps the most relevant is www.bossgettingeven.blogspot.com

It is kind of random but I will be putting some of my military stuff on there...it will also link you to my other blogs, too numerous to mention.

For more on me, check http://www.linkedin.com/profile?view...70&trk=tab_pro

Default Not a good plan.

If you have a comment, you're welcome to make it here, of course...

I'd recommend not using this forum as a traffic builder for elsewhere.

http://www.grognews.com

we've got a new site up and running to mix and match current defense/security news with some (forthcoming) news about how gaming relates to the current events. We've also got a variety of RSS feeds there to help keep people in the know (including SWJ, for our readers there who don't read over here).


We are not intending to be a game-news site, where we break headlines about upcming releases, or playtests, etc. But rather we want to discuss what games might help folks understand current events and play through them, while focusing on the news, and analysis.


Please give us a look and offer some feedback... This is a pretty new venture for us, so we're happy with comments

FWIW - if anyone wants a bit of IITSEC flavor, we've got a few pics/comments over at www.grognews.com

Picture quality isn't great - and the video was shot sideways - but I was working with my cell phone b/c I was told that 'real cameras' were limited to members of the press... and then saw a few thousands of them wandering around after I'd left mine at home.

Founder and administrator of the World Affairs Board (http://www.worldaffairsboard.com).

I think there's a small degree of overlap between the memberships here and there.

Hey man, welcome to SWC! There are a few of us over here. Shamus is on board now. Shek and S-2 are both here, as well.

You will enjoy it. Feel free to jump in...

Excellent blog!

On your post on Iranian nuclear "points of no return," I pretty much decided that particular horse had left that particular barn when I was leafing through a graduate prospective of a local university in Tehran a while back, and noted they were already running a MSc programme in nuclear enrichment and fuel cycle management...

Against my better judgment, I accepted a request to guestblog over at ATTACKERMAN this week while he's on vacation. Wish me luck.

Spencer Ackerman reports national security for the Washington Independent, he's done a ten part series on COIN, one of which he did on my center. We met and have stayed in contact.

He's a little edgy, but for that reason he actually has a pretty well followed national security blog.

As my first post suggests, that I even have the option is a big change for the Army.
