Bouhammer is back up and online

I am very proud to announce that is back up online with its new look, feel, and content. Sorry it was down for a few days but there was a lot of work to do in order to find the proper new look that was needed. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your feedback. Please comment on the Facebook page or on this post and let me know what you think.

Do you like it?

Is it easier to navigate?

Is it confusing?

Do you hate it?

Changes are coming

There are major changes coming to this site and how it looks and behaves. This may cause this site to offline several times over the next couple of weeks while I test-run the new interface. Don’t worry it will be back and will look better than ever and have new and more frequent content coming with it.

Isn’t it funny? 2

Isn’t it funny that if some questionable organization nobody ever heard about makes a video about a warlord in Africa nobody had ever heard about goes viral and then our country all of sudden deploys Special Forces soldiers there to help hunt for him?

Isn’t it funny that when our Secretary of State goes to one of what was our strongest allies to forge a cease-fire he fails miserably?

Isn’t it funny when a liberal Prime Minister from our strongest ally in the world shows more backbone towards a common enemy (then our President) and doesn’t care about mincing words to be P.C.?

Isn’t it funny that our Administration can send three representatives to the funeral of some normal american young man who happened to be killed by a police officer defending himself after committing a crime but not send any to a Two-star General murdered in combat?

Isn’t it funny that we just throw out words when our citizens and innocent journalists are be-headed on video instead of bullets and bombs? Where are the SF teams to hunt these guys down? Where are the strong (and tangible) words from our President?


No, NO, none of that is funny and all of that is very, VERY serious.

Thanks a lot 51% of America for putting impudence, not once, but twice into the leadership of this country. Hope you are proud of yourselves.

The end of 2012 3

This was probably my lightest year in blogging since I started in 2006. It was a tough year to keep up with everything in life, work and of course with what it takes to keep relevant information on this blog. It is not that I don’t have things to write about, I have plenty. It is just finding the time to do so around everything else going on.

I actually have several book reviews which are ready for me to finish and post, and I am going to make those a priority in 2013. It is the least I can do for those who sent be books on their own accord and asked that I review them.

Between reviews, a long saved list of stories and articles and still the every day happenings in Afghanistan there is a lot to talk about. I promise to do my best and be on top of things a little more in producing content, as I have no intention of abandoning this blog quite yet. There are still too many readers of this blog who look for stories on the Af-Pak region, are curious of mine and other opinions, and who just like what they read here.

I also typically change he theme on the blog around every January 1st, but to be honest I am really happy with the current theme and can’t find any out there that I think look better. So unless I do, I will leave the look and feel of this blog as is.

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and I hope you have a wonderful and prosperous 2013.
