There is a new blog in town: On War and Words. It is produced by military historian Mark Stout, who is probably best known to our readers as the lead author of the Terrorism Perspectives Project (the most comprehensive treatment available of the genre “jihadi strategic studies”). I am very excited that he has decided to blog. Do not be fooled by his understated autobiography – this man really knows a lot about jihadism and an insane number of other subjects.
Thomas: You are WAY to kind! You are also, I think, responsible for the enormous spike in my readership today. Keep up the excellent work on your blog and I will struggle to follow. All the best.
