Incoming are some more blog posts, especially "Political and military deterrence", "Decision by attrition or decision by manoeuvre" (both scheduled already), another one commenting on the NATO summit and I may finish some about warfare under oppressing ECM and "Musings about above-ground sovereignty" (unless I find a better title for it after all).
July is thus on track to become a more productive D&F month, despite the nice weather. I actually wrote three blog posts in a single night recently.
I actually have about 30 unpublished draft texts, but they are unpublished because they're not worth being published - and most seem to be abandoned for good.

By the way; the German milblogosphere is almost extinct. I didn't put much effort in researching, but there's simply not enough flesh to write a new blog post about German milblogs as I used to since there are even fewer such blogs active than in the past years. We're mostly down to augengeradeaus.net regarding attendance, which is 95% news about German or NATO military affairs and 5% fillers. It's being run by a professional journalist from a political weekly magazine, though.
Nachtwei, a retired politician, may be noteworthy as well, though I have little interest in his security policy news blogging.
The Vergessene Kriege blog about small wars and Third World conflict is quite active as well (though likely with few visitors) and even turned into a 'competitor' to myself by including mass surveillance concerns as a topic (rarely). It looks like a blog a stereotypical pacifist or development aid worker would be interested in.
Some activity appears to have moved from classic blogs to facebook pages, but I don't keep an eye on facebook.

edit: I'd like to add about my blog;
I'm somewhat disappointed by my readers. There's lots of opposition, lots of disagreement - but I keep finding old errors of mine (such as a typo "20" instead of "200" that totally changed the meaning) in 3-5 years old posts and comments of mine and nobody pointed them out. In fact, I keep finding more mistakes of my own than get pointed out.
This is very disappointing. With all those disagreeing comments I expect the audience to at least point out the obvious and most severe mistakes of mine!
