Every week, the Watcher's Council nominate two posts each, one from the Council members and one from outside for consideration by the whole Council. The complete list of this week’s Council nominations is here.

In which Doctor Sanity examines an interesting phenomenon...public scorn for the US positions to defend the West by European elites who are privately willing to accept the fruits of those efforts.

2. J O S H U A P U N D I T: Wanted For Murder
My take on the treasonous leaking of classified information by elements of the Main Stream Media...frankly, I'm sick of this restless disregard for America's security and the self-appointed elitists who were never elected to anything, but feel thatthey have the right tomake those decisions for the rest of us..without suffering any consequences.

3.Done With Mirrors- Callimachus reposts an interesting piece that uses the Olympics to focus on the Western tradition of dynamic individualism as opposed to Islam's passive communal stance. Well done, Callimachus!

4. The Education Wonks: The Darwin Award In Education: Ben Clevenger EdWonk gives it's Darwin Award to a teacher who took a group of underage students to Europe and allowed them to `animal house', causing his forced resignation.

5. The Strata-Sphere:How Exposure Destroys National Security
AJ examines how leaking classified information hurts national security.

6. Except : New World Man Matt continues his discussion of the Constitution, and has some chilly things to say about an amendment banning flag burning. Fair enough Matt, but I hope nobody ever burns an American flag in front of me...there could be consequences of a very painful kind. Sometimes common decency has to be legislated.

7. Gates of Vienna: American Protestant Pogroms Sweetness, light and an iron fist in a velvet glove...that's Dymphna! I missed this superb post, and will have to give it a seperate link and commentary. It discusses the anti-Semitism and Jew hatred disguised as `anti-Zionism' as practiced by some elements of the christian faith involved with so-called `liberation theology'. As if Jesus would countenance supporting the murderers of his own people!

8. ShrinkWrapped: The Dance of Escalation and Reaction In another great post,Shrinkwrapped talks about the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians and the raid and kidnapping of Corporal Shalit in particular. As I wrote on my own site, this was an act of war, not terrorism and the Israelis should react appropriately.

9. Rhymes With Right: Troops Charged --A Proper Decision Greg examines the marines charged with murdering an Iraqi civilian in Hamdaniyeh.

10.Right Wing Nut House: “WHAT I DID ON MY SUMMER VACATION” BY BILL KELLER Rick's contribution is a wicked satire on a supposed letter from NYT creep-in-charge Bill Keller. Great, nasty stuff..good job, Rick!

11. The Glittering Eye: How Do You Solve a Problem Like…Korea?
Dave examines North Korea and its threat to security.

12. The Sundries Shack: Answering a dumb question Jimmie Bise takes on the MSM and security leaks...well done.
