Introducing Chronicles of War

chroniclesofwar Introducing Chronicles of War

I finally got my face in the hometown paper. Well, its web site at least. I didn’t even have to embezzle city funds, lead cops on a three hour chase, or plow my SUV into METRO’s light rail. My family should be proud.

Thanks to an invitation from blog/media/tech guru Dwight Silverman, I’ll also be blogging the war at the Houston Chronicle. Chronicles of War will cover the same topics you see here at Blogs of War but with a little more depth.

I’m excited about the prospect of getting these topics, and my take on them, in front of a new audience. I’ll keep you guys (and gals) in the loop on developments at Chronicles of War but I hope that you’ll check it out, link it, and participate in the discussion.

Incoming News

Posting is slow but for good reason. I’ve recently hinted at a new project in the works. I actually have a few projects working right now, but one of them should be especially interesting to you. If all goes well it will go live within the next 24 hours. You may see an announcement here as early as this evening or Tuesday morning.

Stay tuned.

Photos Expose Hezbollah

Australia’s Herald Sun has the images, recently smuggled out of Lebanon, just reinforce what we already know about the way terrorists operate:

The images, obtained exclusively by the Sunday Herald Sun, show Hezbollah using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy-calibre weapons.

Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, the militants carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon.

The photographs, from the Christian area of Wadi Chahrour in the east of Beirut, were taken by a visiting journalist and smuggled out by a friend.

These photos need to be circulated but it’s a bit troubling that they’re somehow viewed as earthshattering evidence of the moral depravity of terrorists when we’ve known this for decades. Well, some of us have anyway.
