Jason, the Armchair Generalist, gives his suggestions on a new category for the 2008 Military Weblog Awards.
These [other military-specific] sites are popular, given their (generally) good writing skills and focus on first-person perspectives, but I’m discouraged (whining) that there is not a competition for a best national strategy blog – that is to say, those blogs where the discussions revolve more around the development and execution of national security and foreign policy. I would submit to you my top ten list (alphabetical, not preference):
Arms and Influence
Foreign Policy Watch
Kings of War
Opposed Systems Design
Sic Semper Tyrannis
War, the military, COIN and stuff
Best national strategy blog… good idea and a good list. I don’t mind the inclusion of this blog either. Thanks for the nod, Jason.
update: where’s Small Wars Journal?! Thanks Selil for pointing out that most obvious fact. I can’t believe I missed that. It must have been those Old Speckled Hens I had at Bilbo Baggins with Chris and Craig after the media roundtable this afternoon….
Your thoughts? (on the list, not the beer or pub)
One thought on “Thanks Armchair Generalist”
I have SWJ on my blogroll but I didn’t consider it in the top 10. I think the quality of their output is mixed and inconsistent, and they focus inward far more than upward. And also, they’re a corporated (LLC?) business, so that disqualifies them from the competition.besides, if I added them, I’d have to drop you… ;^)
