the two Michaels: Totten and Yon

Michael Totten and Michael Yon are two independent journalists who travel to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Middle East hot spots (notably Lebanon) on their own dime, embed with the military, and strike out on their own with local guides, They then take amazing photos the likes of which you’ve never seen, and write incredible, cogent commentary and analysis. You might disagree with what they have to say but they make you think – and they make you see.

 

They are worth your time. And they could use your support, if you like what you see. And I suspect you will, indeed.
