Watcher's Council Nominations, 3/26/08

Every week, the Watcher's Council members 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 can be found at the site of our fearless leader, the infamous Watcher of Weasels

Do take the time and check out the non-Council links..they are always rewarding.

Council News: There is a vacancy available in the Watcher's Council. As you can tell from the quality of the work here ( disregarding my own humble efforts), the talent in this group is quite something. This is a superb opportunity for a blogger. If you think you qualify, go here and apply to the Watcher.

Here's this week's lineup...enjoy!

  1. Genocide By Inches
    Joshuapundit - Call this a meditation on the eternal problem of evil and how one deals or doesn't deal with it, sparked by a link I see between the brutal murder of eight young religious students at the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva, an associated Biblical text and the recently celebrated Jewish holiday of Purim.

    This was unpleasant to write and possibly to read,but it sort of intruded itself on me in spite of myself - especially as it deals with larger themes than just Israel.

  2. Get Your Grim Milestone Today?
    Done With Mirrors - Callimachus is fed up with the unholy glee of the dinosaur media rejoicing in the 4,000th casualty in Iraq.

  3. A Taxonomy of Mea Culpas
    The Glittering Eye - Dave does a fine job of cataloging the various excuses for pundit error on Iraq.

  4. It's All in the Branding
    Soccer Dad - Soccer Dad reflects on American progress in the battle for hearts and minds in the war on jihad. In one sense,I agree with him - al -Qaeda has become discredited in many circles. In another sense, wahabism and salafism have become mainstream in the west through the Saudi funded mosques and madrassas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR....there's a great deal of progress left to make.

  5. What Would You Do?
    Bookworm Room - Ms. Bookworm has an interesting post this week on race and responsibility, in light of the Obama/Wright fracas and insistence on White Guilt for all that ails them.

  6. Beer-Soaked Politics
    Cheat Seeking Missiles - Laer has a fine post this week illustrating how far afield the 'hate America' crowd will go for ammunition...even to using a beer cap!

  7. A Conversation With Sa'ad
    Wolf Howling - GW plays host to an Iraqi translator and reveals a fascinating ground level view of what's going on there.

  8. Municipal Internet -- Deader Than a Doornail?
    Rhymes With Right - Greg writes about the debacle of municipal internet,yet another examp[le of how much fun it is for government to spend somebody else's money..

  9. Question "Authority"
    The Colossus of Rhodey - The Angry Left invades the world of comic books..and Laer reports.

  10. Virgina Taxpayers Made To Pay For Criminal's Rampage
    The Education Wonks - The Commonwealth of Virginia has proposed a tax payer funded payoff to the victims and families of the Virginia Tech shootings - and EdWonk is agin' it,on general principles.

  11. Welcome To a Brave New World
    Right Wing Nut House - Rick writes about a story I've been following here on JoshuaPundit, the likely consequences of the recent election of an anti-American government in Pakistan, the forcing out of US ally Musharraf and the new government's likely live-and -let -live withal-Qaeda and the Taliban.

    Aside from providing a secure base for Islamist terrorism, one of the consequences will assuredly be the jeopardizing of our efforts in Afghanistan as some of our NATO allies continue to avoid their responsibilities.
