Observations on AFRICOM & new CENTCOM

From Eddie, of FDNF & now Hidden Unities, is Doing Wrong by Doing Right on the creation of a new Africa Command.

From Huck-Eye View is the selection of Admiral Fallon to lead CENTCOM. HEV comments on some of the thinking on milblogs. Not in the commentary is that he would accept the job, which a previous candidate would not due to Rumsfeld's insistence on a direct report of the Iraq Theater commander. Perhaps Gates isn't going to be as insistent?

Incidentally, Michael Weiss, writing on Slate, casts MountainRunner as a Milblog... I never really thought of MR as a Milblog.
