Defending the Defenders

I love Milblogs.

What's not to like? Real news, views, pics & video from the men and women making it happen. And on most of them you can participate! What a gift these brave souls have provided to anyone interested enough to seek it out. Without these precious blogs, how would we know that the MSM is getting it all wrong? News releases on CENTCOM and stories on DefendAmerica are great resources for info on the progress and success of their efforts, but the warriors have so much more to say.

Milbloggers, like everyone else with a blog, love to get feedback and comments. Whether you leave a simple "Thank you" or a dissertation of appreciation, the support you show can mean a lot.

These warriors are well prepared to engage the enemy in mental as well as physical battle. Even moonbat screed comments are entertained and responded to with knowledgeable, factual, patient remarks. Occasionally the 'tards must be monkey-stomped, but heck - they deserved it for picking on their intellectual superiors.

One thing that can't be tolerated is the willfull destruction of a milblog or website by hackers.

Mr. Right and Anna of The Right Place and A Rose by Any Other Name have disturbing news about Grey Eagle's site A Female Soldier 2, and how it has been attacked by trolls who weren't satisfied just to leave venomous remarks. From her site, this is the beginning of the last post.
Congratulations To Those Who Oppose The Soldiers
I wish to express my congratulations to the hackers, vandals, and anti-war visitors who successfully blocked my ability to post any further tributes to the soldiers. I am sure you find victory in preventing myself and others from having a place to read and pay our respects to the Fallen Female Soldiers, and my brother’s in arms, the brave soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division. I can only imagine your satisfaction in justifying the disgrace of men and women who died for this country.
Grey Eagle has created and maintained a terrific site on her own time and dime. She's in Iraq, away from her husband and kids, fighting for the safety, security, and rights that some asshat hackers take for granted. Check out the post on The Right Place for the story and updates. And go to her site and leave a NICE comment, please.
