If you check out the Archives down near the bottom on the right side of your screen you might notice a big gap between March 2005 and April 2006, between my last attempt to blog about my deployment to Afghanistan and my first effort on this one. I migrated the old blog posts over here. I gave up on that one. Leisure time, sleep deprivation, brain power, give a shit level and internet access limits killed The Kandahar Contract, and constantly threaten this one. I’m an Infinitesimally Insignificant Microbe in the TTLB Ecosystem with little desire to do what I have to do to evolve further up the evolutionary food chain. I’m really not cut out to be a blogger. I’m not the great writer Cannonette thinks I am.
I keep at it because I’m hard headed.
Remember back in 2005 when Newsweek’s agitprop about fictional flushed Korans fomented fatal riots? I lived through that. KAF went Force Protection batshit. Our Nationals couldn’t come to work. We got pretty bowed up trying to Charlie Mike without them. It was already very hot that spring on the edge of the Registan Desert. Blood – Hold. Sweat – Check. Tears – Check. That event clarified my thinking about Old Media. When I came home I started this blog. And I haven’t quit. And my tiny but elite readership hasn’t quit on me.
I may be the first self-tutored wannabe amateur PSYOP’er on the internet.

Top Post According To WordPress: “Ad Triarios Redisse!” That was Grimmy’s idea.
Cannonette’s Best Post: Live From Iraq it’s Indirect Fire!
This coming year you can expect more Afghan Public Protection Force, Logistics, Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Politically Incorrect Politics, Irregular Warfare, Resilient Community Defense, Military Support to Civil Authorities and less cheer leading for what have now become merely Overseas Contingency Operations.
I intend to fight The Program.
