Several important announcements about the Saker blog

Soon a daily “Iraq SITREP” on the Saker blog!Dear friends,Many of you have probably noticed that one of our regular readers and commentators, Mindfriedo, has been posting very interesting updates about the situation in Iraq.  In fact, his posts were so interesting that I have asked him to “upgrade” them to full SITREPs to be posted alongside Juan’s and mine.  Mindfriedo has agreed to do so and, God willing, his

Novorussian TV channel and video streams

Dear friends,Just came back from a couple of wonderful days exploring the beautiful lower Suwannee River (roughly between Fanning Springs and the Gulf of Mexico) and it will take me a few hours to get back to civilization and get organized (Juan is also exhausted to he will take a day off). Right now just I wanted to share with those of you who can understand Russian two websites where

Various “housekeeping” issues

1.  From tomorrow afternoon until Sat late morning (all US Eastern time) I will be gone and I will have only sporadic access to the Internet (I will be enjoying some badly needed time off with my wife on the Suwannee River: photographing wildlife, freediving in springs, exploring various wildlife refuges, swamps and conservation areas).  Before I leave I will post an “empty post” which I will leave as an

Personal announcement: rules, housecleaning and contact info request

To the small number of obnoxious monomaniacs amongst you who are totally obsessed with WWII, Hitler and Jews: this blog is *NOT* a historic blog about these topics.  Is that so hard to understand?  Today I had to trash something in the range of 20-25 comments all about race, Jews, Hitler, etc.  This has got to stop and you are clearly not understanding it the nice way.  This is a

Personal announcement: When it rains it pours…

Dear friends, I am sorry to say that I am sick yet again, this time with some Florida food poisoning.  In fact, I am writing this in bed on my tablet.  I have a few requests to submit to you: 1) Sobcors: please stop using the sobcor email list as a discussion list.  Please ONLY use it to contact your REGION’S sobcors to get in touch and/or coordinate work.2) Please,

Short personal annoucement

Dear friends, Two small points: a) I am sick with a nasty stomach flu and I am spending most of my time in bed.  I hope to get better by tomorrow. Until then, this affects my ability to reply to emails, moderate comments or write.  I apologize for that.b) I have done a poor job enforcing the rule that comments must be respectful.  This has to change.  So from now

Personal announcement: New moderation policy plan adopted

Dear friends,The following comments moderation policy has now been adopted:1.  Comments must contribute to the interest of a thread, a post or of the blog.  Just venting or totally inane comments will not be allowed.2.  Comments must be respectful. Criticisms are welcome, but they must be fact based on logically outlined.  Name calling does not qualify.3.  Off-topic comments are allowed, but have to offer something of interest to the readers.

One more thing about the “Saker correspondents” project – USA correspondents

Dear friends,I realized that I was missing on a good opportunity here to involve some correspondents from the USA.While I myself currently live in the USA, I think that I might very much need the help from US correspondents, but not from this or that state or region, but from different specializations.While it makes little sense to compare Fox News in San Diego and Boston, the USA can be very

Update on the “Saker correspondents” idea

Dear friends,A few days ago I posted an idea to create a network of “Saker correspondents”.  Here is what I wrote: I think that it might be extremely useful to create a group of “correspondents” of this blog.  Here is what I mean by that:I need local folks to go through the local Internet resources (not the big national news, those I parse myself) to seek out interesting stuff and

Request for comments about my moderation policy

Dear friends, I have decided to take the opportunity of a lull in my Sunday afternoon to seek your advice as to what to do about my comments policy.After quite a few years of relative obscurity, this blog has seen a sudden and massive explosion in readership.  For years I was getting about 1000 visitors per week, now it regularly gets over 20’000 visitors per day from literally all over

Personal announcement: blog switching to universal time

Dear friends,With almost 20’000 readers literally spread all over the world, I have decided to follow a very good suggestion posted by ‘anonymous’ and switch this blog’s timestamps to universal time aka Zulu time aka GMT.  Sticking to the one I previously used (EST) is really inadequate and parochial.  Also, since most of the world does not use the stupid AM/PM convention, I will be using the so-called “military time”

Personal announcement: there is good news, and there is bad news (and one idea)

Dear friends, Today, as people often say, I have some good news and some not so good news.The good news is that a number of kind people have reach out to me in different ways to help me assure the survivability of this blog.  The idea is to make the blog available in sufficient number of duplicates located in different places of the planet to prevent the “Axis of Kindness”

A chance for you to say “no, not in my name!”

After reading the open letter to President Putin signed by over 300 Germans, one of the readers of this blog decided to emulate their example and write his own open letter to President Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov.  Unlike the German letter, this letter is much more simple and very much to the point.  This is its full text: Many citizens of western countries greatly respect your measured responses to

Personal announcement: I am backing up this blog on WordPress

Dear friends,After being urged to do so by a lot of you (thanks!), I have backed up this blog on WordPress.  You can now find the backup blog here: http://thesaker.wordpress.com/ For the time being, this is only a backup option so PLEASE continue to post your comments here and not on the backup blog. Also, I am, alas, limited to 13MB of blogger import on WordPress.  At least the newest
