Michael Yon's new home

Independent journalist Michael Yon has left his Blogger platform and is now hosting his dispatches at a full-featured website: MichaelYon-Online.com.

Michael continues to do crucial, important work covering aspects of the Iraq conflict that generally don't make it into the mainstream media. All of his dispatches from the old blog made the trip over (looks like he's converted to WordPress.)

If you haven't read Michael Yon before, his most recent dispatch, "Operation Iraqi Children ," is a fine place to start.
Think of it as a Virtual Private Marshall Plan for the children of Iraq. It’s not just about enlightened altruism; the Iraqi children struggling to learn in poorly supplied schools today are the same leaders that our own children will deal with tomorrow. Today’s generosity can characterize that relationship for generations to come.
