For us mere mortals who don't really know what it's like to run around legitimately shooting people, while some other bastard is trying to blow you to bits, Mil-blogs provide great insight into what really happens in the front lines, which is probably too boring for the movies and too real, too long for the mainstream media.
The curiosity got the best of me, and I tried to find a Sri Lankan Mil-blogger. Milblogging.com lists one, The Long Ranger, the blogger I'm pretty sure is not in the front lines (do they have Wi-Fi in Wanni?) but he seems to be heavily clued nevertheless. I will be a faithful reader.
