The Best Defense

What defense blogs should I be reading? Send along your suggestions, please

Every morning I read about 40 blogs on national security and international news. Lately I've noticed some good sites (such as Phil Cave's military law page) have become less active in posting, and so I demoted his and several others to a "check once-a-week" category.

That means I have openings for other blogs to be on my daily read roster. What would you suggest that is related to the world of national security? Especially have some new ones surfaced that I might not yet have noticed? Let me know.

IDD detection dog Ty keeps watch while his handler Marine LCpl. Brandon Mann, a Texas native with the 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion sweeps the area with a look through his automatic rifle. The pair along with other Marines and sailors was in Helmand Province assigned to a "clearing and disrupting operations in and around the villages of Sre Kala and Paygel during Operation Highland Thunder" on February 2.
