We are happy that, despite an abundance of publications specializing in military subjects, you are still with us. This is a good sign because our readership is very special. It is not interested in sensational exposes or under-the-rug intrigue within the military department (something that "independent" media outlets tend to specialize in), but aspires to constant self-improvement and expansion in outlook. The overwhelming majority of materials published in the journal cannot be simply read: They require intense intellectual effort, good analytical skills, and the desire to establish the truth no matter what. It is not just anybody that is able to do this. So the number of MT readers is a kind of an indicator of the intellectual capacity of the Armed Forces.
