Michael Yon: Millblogging community is a hurricane of hotair
Mike doesn't care about the opinions of those who disagree with him or call him out on his lies and his irrational behavior. He doesn't care about kind, respectful, supportive interventions. He spins all this to make everyone seem misguided at best, and a liar at worst --- which is exactly what he did on his FB page when others tried a similar albeit smaller version of an intervention and which is what he'll do with Matt and the millbloggers who participated in the intervention.
Bottom line questions: How many milbloggers who were not on active duty (hence sent to the war as a troop) have spent more than a year in the wars? I know of zero. Does one exist?
The milblogging community is largely a hurricane of hot air.
There are some ...good and responsible writers working milblogs but most of them are less accurate than the MSM they oppose.Please name the top five milblogs -- and one person from each -- who has spent a year (less than 15% of the war) as a civilian journalist/writer in Iraq/Afghanistan.
Start with http://www.longwarjournal.org/ and Blackfive.
People who are seriously tracking the war seriously don't track these
Michael Yon 's head remains firmly up his ass.
