A friend of mine, a very good T.V. producer in New York City, is helping cast a new Web-based reality show called Bands of Brothers. The premise: a dozen musically-inclined veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars — male and female — will be divided into three rock bands and perform in Philadelphia.

Meet the Troll
Today’s troll is “E Martin,” responding to my article about Germans defeating the U.S. Air Force F-22 in mock combat. The troll, with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and the IP address 18.104.22.168, writes …
So it appears that Neil Tolley, the general who accused me of fabricating quotes attributed to him, has either been fired or has voluntarily stepped down — though it’s also possible he was due to be replaced in any event.
Five days after falsely accusing me of “making up” quotations I attributed to him, it appears Brig. Gen. Neil Tolley, commander of Special Operations Forces for U.S. Forces Korea, has either been fired or has voluntarily stepped down. Per a Pentagon press release dated today, his replacement is …
At the height of the controversy over my recent story in The Diplomat about Special Forces in North Korea, I stepped down from my role as a regular blogger for the Japan-based publication. I did so specifically to draw heat away from a publication I was proud to work for.
The latest pissed-off reader takes exception to my coverage of the Blue Devil 2 “missile blimp” — and also finds my “pen name” to be “cute.” He also helpfully sent me a link to a marketing brochure detailing Blue Devil’s weapons capability, failing to notice that I’m the one who uploaded that document in the first place.

by MOLLY BRENAN No art or barbarians today. Instead, this the closest thing this blog has ever had to a holiday special. I’m very grateful that you guys abide my hanging out here.

Best Comment Ever! [Updated]
by DAVID AXE I got the most delightful comment the other day, from a man apparently named Mike Nash, with the email address email@example.com and the IP address 22.214.171.124, which would seem to place him near Kodak, Tennessee: I see by your War Is Boring picture [masthead --ed.] above that you are implying that blacks [...]
