    May you get 150 million more.
    And Acre? Was that the siege by Saladin or the later one by the Mamelukes?

  2. turcopolier says:

    mike allen
    The mamelukes in 1292. That is the Grand Master of the Hospitallers (Jean de Villiers) fighting in the front rank. pl

  3. BabelFish says:

    Agree with Mike Allen. Many, many more people need to be regular visitors. It is an education without peer and just might keep us out of war.

  4. Fred says:

    Well done sir.

    Thank you cuz. It would be easy to give up. My hat is off toe the GM of the Hospitallers. BTW many Muslims fought in defense of Acre in 1292. They did not want to live under Mameluke rule. pl

    Sir, Congrats! You and the committee make a difference. There isn’t another place on the internet that equals this one.
    Thank you and God bless.

    This mameluk, spoted the contrast between the picture of 007 surrounded by girls posted by Fred, and the picture of the Siege of Acre posted by Col. Lang. It says that while the life of the masterspy is supposed to be, ahem, interesting, in truth it really turns out like being the herdsman of a nasty clowder of warring cats.

    You sound like a driveling idiot. What are you talking about? Fred and I are two different people. pl

    Ah, we are not supposed to be human, eh? Once again what Fred posts is his own, not mine. Are you another troll? ol

    Colonel Bravo, this a very good informative site, to be on. Thank you

  12. 15 million. Not too shabby. Congratulations and here’s to many millions more.
    Every time I hear about the Grand Master, I think of the death of another Grand Master. Ulrich von Jungingen and his Teutonic Knights met his end at the hands of Vytautas and his Lipka Tartar allies. My ancestors probably had a hand in the demise of that Grand Master.

  13. BillWade says:

    Congrats!

    Anonymous,
    Well we did have clowns scaring the kiddies in the neighborhood recently so why not one on the internet. Unlike what happens in Hollywood the Siege of Acre was a defense of Christendom, you’ll have to ask the Col the details about that since I’m neither him nor an expert.
    I noticed that no one on the left called out Kanye for his conduct either when it occurred or in relation to what I poste. Trashing a successful young woman is acceptable to too many. Pointing that out in the era of the “nations first black president” would get one labeled racist; Doing while Monica’s abuser was in the Oval office, where his wife and associates would character assassinate one, well that’s no longer a subject for the memory hole though some of my associates on the left really wish it had stayed there. How would Frank Luntz put it? Don’t think about the about the war on women?

  15. Degringolade says:

    Colonel:
    I obviously offended…the only thing I can think of is perhaps you were offended by the “feed the organ grinder”. If this is it, please don’t take offense, it is a very old family saying meaning “pay for what you listen to”. Nothing more.
    If it is something else, I am clueless.

  16. Ishmael Zechariah says:

    Colonel.
    Congratulations. Thanks for providing a sane voice in the wilderness against those so well described by Tacitus:
    “Auferre trucidare rapere falsis nominibus imperium, atque ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant.”
    Ishmael Zechariah

  17. Ante says:

    Well deserved. Thank you very much for your time and effort, same to all the regular contributors.

  18. ked says:

    thanks for the site & your steady hand at QC… most forums could learn a lot from you.
    you (& other posters) help some of us to better consider positions contrary to our own.
    it won’t be long to 16M, or 20M!

  19. Henshaw says:

    Congratulations Colonel. That’s quite a milestone. Your time and effort is appreciated.

  20. Imagine says:

    well deserved, and many more. Congratulations.

  21. Lefty says:

    Congratulations. You and the folks you have assembled on this site have earned every view and then some.
    I’ve just made a contribution to express my appreciation.

  22. Sherry Long De Mandel says:

    Congratulations. Thank you for such an informative and insightful site. And, thank you also to all guests who post and those who comment.

  23. eakens says:

    Congrats. Just got done watching the debate. So is the fact that it takes 4 minutes from the time POTUS gives the order to the time nukes go flying a state secret that Hillary so casually let out?

    It is an honour to be here, thank you Dear Host for your time and energy.

  25. b says:

    Congrats Pat – to many millions more. I would be a real loss if you would ever stop.
    (Just for information – no competition please – MoA is just 3 days short of 18m right now – but that is only because I, at times, allow some crazies to abuse the comments – solely for my amusement.)

  26. Giroro says:

    Champagne pour tout le monde! Caviar pour les autres.
    Félicitations.

  27. Balint Somkuti says:

    Congratulations Sir, and thank you for your work!

  28. Martin Oline says:

    Very impressive. Congratulations on your work, which has appealed to so many. I only wish it were 150 million, then perhaps this would be a better country.

  29. Congratulations!! All the best to you!

  30. JF says:

    Congratulations and thank you

    The question of allowing the uncivil and the whacky to comment is difficult. pl

  32. hans says:

    Colonel, congratulations. Getting the attention of 15mm over the years is a singular feat. Reading SST has become a daily habit, and a rewarding one, for me and thousands of others. I’m hopeful thousands more will do so as well and I hope other readers and participants will help spread word of it by quoting and linking.
    Sensible thinking and the writing of it born of deep experience and well considered thought is hard to find, but I find it here daily. Thank you.

  33. tim s says:

    Congrats, Colonel. I’m sure I’m not alone in my appreciation of your not giving it up a few months back. All the best in the future.

  34. LeaNder says:

    Just for information – no competition please …
    b, Pat drew us here on his own, you took over the audience of one of the most prominent American bloggers at one point time.
    Facts are sacred – comment is free. If you don’t mind.
    ******
    sorry Pat, couldn’t help. I’ll watch it.

  35. Jack says:

    Congratulations, Sir!
    I know of no other person that provides reality based analysis available to the public in the US. Sir, you and the SST correspondents are providing an invaluable service in these days of mass propaganda by the MSM in the service of the Borg. May SST continue to grow and provide a beacon of hope for those that resist the growing tyranny of manufactured information.

  36. Stephanie says:

    Congratulations, and many thanks for your wonderful site.

  37. Edward Amame says:

    That is amazing, and well deserved — congratulations!

  38. Sam Peralta says:

    Bravo Col. Lang!
    Thank you for the “no spin” zone. I can’t imagine being without SST which I now check out every day.

  39. Congratulations.
    A remark in passing from an ‘ideological mongrel’.
    If we are to get out of the infernal mess in which we are in, it is important for people to realise that traditional distinctions between ‘left’ and ‘right’ are only partly relevant to where we are now.
    It is an enormous help that very many of those who have commented here over the years, while they may disagree – on occasion violently! – about very many matters, have enormous respect for you.
    My own nightmares – reflecting both the experience of the English Civil War, and also your readings of its American successor – echo that famous phrase of W.B.Yeats: ‘the centre cannot hold’.
    It may be of more use than is immediately apparent, in in preventing a process of polarisation leading towards disaster, if there are places where people of very diverse views can, as it were, ‘sniff each other out’, and – sometimes at least – feel their way towards some kind of common ground.

  41. Dorothy108 says:

    Sir! Congratulations! Long time reader, first time poster. My sincerest thanks for all you have taught and above all for being a truth teller. Bless you.

  42. different clue says:

    BabelFish,
    I have mentioned SST every so often over at Naked Capitalism in hopes of bringing some regular readers from there to here as well. And the fact that certain SST articles are now posted in various “news roundups” many days at Naked Capitalism would seem to indicate that some new regular readers have indeed joined.

  43. Dabbler says:

    Congratulations, sir! To further quote Yeats, “what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”
    Thank you for providing a way to see through the propaganda and the fog, and to discern the “rough beasts”. Seeing clearly is the first step in dealing with matters.

  44. Valissa says:

    Those are my thoughts as well!
    Congratulations Prof Lang, and many thanks for providing the best ongoing graduate level seminar on the internet!

    Great! After all, according to the first song after the intro, “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing!–

  46. Cee says:

    Col. Lang,
    Well deserved. I mentioned after finding SST that I admired you for scaring Douglas Feith just by being in his presence.
    Keep it up!

  47. Jov says:

    Congratulations, Sir!
    The in depth insight on many themes common people know little about as well as a wonderful correspondence of participants from all over the world, are just two of many reasons for often visiting SST.
    On the other side, a line against the Borg has to be drawn. SST and an ocean of well-founded arguments are the best place for it, and you are in command.
    Good luck and keep it up.

  48. b says:

    MoA started, “took over” in your words, with some 50 page views per day. There are 25,000 to 40,000/day now.
    Now crawl back to wherever you came from.

    Col Lang
    Well this is good news – is it just me or are the millions racking up faster these days? Thank you both to you and the committee for the side stories also – takes me back as I spent a fair bit of time in the wilds, did some shooting (only .22 and shotgun) and learnt joinery on the job with a staunchly leftist master carpenter working on barns etc. with some really nice big lumps of oak – a real character… as self-taught a man as you could wish for, we would go down to the local woodyard in the Aquitaine region of France where M. Bois (and that really was his name) with a girth like a redwood would lift hefty beams with a single hand to pass them over. I still have the drawings of the old wood on wood joints I sketched before recreating them to replace rotted beams… and this in an area where master joiners were remaking the old style curved tile roofs (also with massive oak beam supports) and wore ear rings as a mark of their trade – mini-chainsaw in hand and no scaffolding…. good to see the people here respect the old ways.

  50. Lord Curzon says:

    Colonel,
    Congratulations, there is little to compare to SST. Long may it continue to make those who “dream with their eyes open” wary.

    Congratulations, Sir
    ” Ralliez vous a mon panache blanc !” could have been your motto.
    Please don’t give up, USA need you, and us all over the world too !
