David Axe joins Frontline
David Axe joins the From the Frontline blog ranks this week. David is the author of Army 101 and War Fix. He also writes for the Wired Magazine Danger Room blog, keeps a personal blog called War is boring and uploads his cartoons to Flickr. Staying with the ‘boring’ theme, David has called his Frontline blog Africa is Boring. Here’s the RSS feed. You can see David’s name added to the banner above and in the right hand sidebar and below he explains the name,
Africa is big, beautiful and diverse. Africa teems with commercial, artistic and â€“ to the West â€“ strategic potential. But Africa is troubled by war, hunger, bad politics and foreign meddling. Africa’s story is exciting, but writing that story mostly involves long, hot days; endless, potholed roads across interminable landscape; and hour after hour sitting, waiting and watching Africa seethe all around you. In short, AFRICA IS BORING. link
Last year we did a Q&A with David as he was about to set off for Mogadishu. Welcome to the blog David.
