The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watchers Council Results

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

War and peace, the an issue of our time increasingly in the news, especially when it concerns the Middle East.

This week’s winner, The Noisy Room’s The Mosaic Of War takes an in depth, wonderfully written look at what looks more and more like a coming war between Israel and Iran, and how America might find itself involved whether we want to be or not. Here’s a slice:

My all-time favorite author is Dean Koontz. He has a way of telling a story that is absolutely riveting, humorous and horrifying at the same time. There’s a story here somewhere for Dean – I can sense evil from The Corner of My Eye. And it is fast approaching like a malevolent storm intent on sweeping mankind away with sinister glee bubbling up from its chaotic depths. The story line is unfolding with good and evil lines drawn and the players taking sides with no guarantee of the outcome, but plenty of ensured carnage. Let’s set the stage, shall we?< One of the first things that happens before full-blown war breaks out typically is that embassies are closed and diplomats are recalled or expelled. It is a precursor to the beginning of festivities on both sides. This past week. Canada found the spine we seemed to have misplaced and declared Iran a terrorist regime. They closed their embassy in Iran and brought their ambassador and diplomats home. They closed Iran’s embassy in Canada and kicked out their ambassador and diplomats. They also issued the strongest travel warning available to their citizens telling them in no uncertain terms, don’t even think of going to Iran and if you are there, get the hell out. {…}

For those that think this only involves Israel and Iran, or at the most the Middle East, think again. We will be drawn into this war. There is no way we can’t. Not only is Israel our closest ally, Iran is our worst enemy. There is an argument to be made that Obama would love a war to break out as he sees it as a pathway to reelection. Americans should review that scenario carefully. If war breaks out, we would be much safer with Romney at the helm. At least he has a spine and morals.

Americans should also consider the very real possibility of an attack on the US. Last week, Iran stated that shortly they would be stationing their navy just outside of US waters. All the better to hit us with an EMP or 3. But, they don’t need a navy… a cargo ship would do nicely.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Michelle Malkin with Chicago thuggery personified: Meet Chicago Teachers’ Union president Karen Lewis submitted by Joshuapundit. It’s a detailed expose of the radical president of the Chicago Teacher’s Union.

OK, here are this week’s full results. Only Gay Patriot was unable to vote, but was not subject to the 2/3 vote penalty:
