Watcher's Council results, 10/13/06

The Council has spoken! Complete results can be found here on the site of our fearless leader, Watcher of Weasels

This weeks winner on the Council is: Right Wing Nut House: “AS LONG AS WE’RE TALKING, WE’RE NOT SHOOTING AT EACH OTHER” Rick Moran writes a fine essay debunking this long established nonsense. Negotiation only works when there's some mutual incentive for an agreement..some thing that cannot be said about some of our current adversaries.

Second place was taken by: ShrinkWrapped: Changes ShrinkWrapped's interesting post on how societies respond to change, and an examination of the concept that the clash of the modern world and primitive cultures sets off a cascade which destabilizes the more primitive culture and eventually reorganizes at a higher, more peaceful level.

For non-Council posts the winner was : RECONQUISTA: Is Islam waging war on the world? a fine effort to use statistics to track the increase in Islamic attacks. Like I've said, the marching orders are in the Qu'ran and the Hadiths, and the very name of of this site, which refers to the Spanish re-taking of their country from the invading Muslims, is evidence that this is not a modern phenomena.

Hearty Kudos to all the winners!
