Robert Farley’s been agitating for a while now for the abolition of the Air Force. Now along comes the Air Force determined to prove its continued relevance by launching a new “counter-blog” initiative aimed at “counter[ing] the people out there in the blogosphere who have negative opinion about the U.S. government and the Air Force.”

Of course what this doesn’t do is allay one’s doubts that a branch of the military whose institutional identity and mission were a pure creation of the Cold War era may not be well-suited to the present-day geopolitical context.
