    As in MILLIONS ?!
    Amazing numbers.
    You’re doing it right Colonel.
    A great place here to read ideas and thoughts about the situations that affect us.

  3. Maureen Lang says:

    Another milestone in the SST history. Congratulations!

  4. SAC Brat says:

    Colonel, you’re right up there with forest monks for firing off diamonds. Keep up the good work.

  5. Congrats and thanks for your effort!!!

    the attention is warranted

    Congratulations Pat!
    SST is an excellent source of analytical opinion on the reality of our times!
    As an investor with several failures in start-up internet media properties, 4 million page views is a significant achievement considering the word of mouth manner through which it has been accomplished. Speaks to the quality of the content!
    Thanks for your courage.

    Col. Lang:
    And this is only one of the many things you do well!

  14. Nicollo says:

    Colonel —
    Your choice of Durer’s “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” to accompany this auspicious announcement is interesting. Please elaborate….
    ….and congratulations on work well done.

    So much of what we deal with here, and what I have dealt with over the decades has to do with war, pestilence, etc. that it seemed fitting. The atmosphere becomes so heavy here at times that a kazoo band makes a nice break. pat

  16. Jan G says:

    Congratulations.. and very much appreciated.

  17. alnval says:

    Col. Lang:
    A kazoo band or a bunch of mandolin players!
    I thought I was the only one.

    Not surprised, Colonel Lang. High quality analysis, always. Wonderful discussions in the comment section. And lively! Thank you again for the site.

    Congratulations – and I am glad that I was against your quitting – when you were desperate and threatened to close the blog 🙂

  21. steve says:

    You run a great blog Colonel, and certainly are due the respect and the audience.

  22. DH says:

    Congrats, Colonel! This site is a treasure.

  23. VanD says:

    I am quite sure your writing is to open minded thinkers, military and civilian, what the draegermen are to miners.

  24. optimax says:

    Col. Lang,
    Congratulations on producing a quality product that attracts thinking people.

    Very early in the Bush Era, when I thought Rummy had the Pentagon marching in lock-step—all the star whores seeking his favor– you stood up; and, upon retirement, you kept doing your duty. I deem an American patriot as he/she who would not allow to be done to “OUR” kids in the military what he/she would not allow done to his/her biologic kids. Alas, without a draft, most Americans suffer from “ain’t my kid going to war” disconnect syndrome. For the rest who really wish to understand the mindset behind this post-9/11 catastrophic era, your blog has been a mooring that keeps us informed and sane. Thank you for doing your duty to the very end.

  26. YT says:

    Col., sir:
    My thanks to you for allowin’ me to post on this here site. It’s been enlightenin’ to read ’em views of yours along with the comments of others. I must apologize for bein’ a genuine pain-in-the-a** on occasion.
    With your many years of experience & gained acumen, I bet many here would wish they could have you as their dad or mentor.
    But if we were in ‘nother alternate universe where we could really be father & son, or Jedi master & pupil, you’d probably find me a REAL pain-in-the-a**.
    Congrats again for hittin’ that 4 mill.

  27. Robert Murray says:

    Dear Col. Lang,
    A very hearty congratulations to you and to repeat what has been said – well deserved! Thank you for SST.

  28. If my math is right the ration of comments to posts–26 to 1–may be setting an all-time record for serious blogs. And this is a very serious blog and probably studied seriously by those of US who care about our future and those who wish US would no longer exist. But could be wrong.

  29. JM says:

    So? A million of them were mine.

  30. Charles I says:

    VanD – “what the draegermen are to miners” is a poetic way of putting it.
    You are a light Pat, where the hell is the end of the tunnel? Which I hope never appears, lest it lead to your retirement. I’m addicted.
    And then YT makes a bet I wouldn’t take as I’ve felt as he on occasion.
    To four million more, hopefully about how to proceed with soldiers brought home, GWOT wars over for a bit.

    Congratulations, Colonel.
    I can’t think of a blog that more deserves the honor.
