"Small wars," as the site uses it, is a kind of catch-all term for counter-insurgency, counter-terrorism, and other pervasive features of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although SWJ may have the narrow readership of a trade or academic journal, its online presence has allowed it to be a major voice on topics paramount to public interest..."

<em>This journal is widely read in-theater</em>

Even the comments section? Uh oh.

At any rate, congrats to the site and site editors et al.

Wonderful public educational resource and good illustration of online COI (see, I can do acronyms too. Er, hope I picked the correct one).

To illustrate:

I recognize other South Asian bloggers from Omar link's around here. I mean, from other SA sites that have nothing specifically to do with the topics discussed here. This node: Small Wars. Other node: SA. Intersection: via Omar's comments.

Yes- agree. The sharing of information and opinions here are great development opportunities. This journal is widely read in-theater.

SWJ has been an important part of my professional life in terms of a knowledge source and forum for debate and discussion since i returned from Baghdad in late 2006.

thanks to the SWJ crew for all of the excellence and hard work
