I have a new blog up, but it is not just me. CJ from over at ASP and myself came up with the idea collectively.Â We both maintain very popular milblogs that focus primarily on military issues, and of course mine also focuses on Afghanistan. With everything going on in our country today in the world of politics, we both realized that there were more and more political (non-military) blog posts seeping into our blogs. In order to maintain the integrity of our respective blogs we decided to create militarypundits.com.
More than just an outlet for CJ and myself to voice their opinion and views on political matters, we wanted to open it up to any and all military or past military members to also have a place to vent, unload, share or whatever they wanted to do about political matters. We have put together a group of milbloggers who represent both sides of the â€œaisleâ€, who belong to very different political parties, but most importantly who have all raised their hands and swore to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.
If you are a military blogger who would also like a forum to share your political opinions, right or left, send me an email with your blog URL and why youâ€™d like to join.Â Military Pundits is designed to be an all-inclusive forum and not specifically reserved for conservatives or liberals.Â In the spirit of the forthcoming â€œFairness Doctrineâ€ we present this forum as a bi-partisan place to hang your hat and let your rants fly. If you donâ€™t want to be a regular contributor but would like to write and share something every once in a while and you have served in the military, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to me directly at email@example.com and let me know.
So this is why militarypundits.com exists, this is why we created it, and we hope this is why you go read it.
The site is in version 1.0 right now. There will be a lot more content, features, etc. added in the future as time allows.
So now that you are done reading this posting, head over to www.militarypundits.com and check it out
