Watcher’s Council Nominations – Horses And Bayonets Edition

The Watcher’s Council
Hat Tip: Pseud O’Nym

To send President Obama’s snide little comment from last night’s debate right back at him, he needs to find out how our military actually works. He could start by talking to a Marine or a soldier who’s had his or her life saved because he or she knew how to put their bayonet training to use.

Or to the men of the 10th Mountain, some of whom I’m honored to be acquainted with, who participated in an amazing but under-reported endeavor known as Operation Mountain Thrust. It involved them landing by helicopter on the side of a mountain to outflank the Taliban, a position the jihadis thought was inaccessible. Horses and donkeys were used to cart supplies in on a daily basis.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

Council News:

This week, The Grouch and The Pirate’s Cove took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent pieces they sent in.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then just return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday AM.

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members, while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have this week…

  1. He could start by talking to a Marine or a soldier who’s had his or her life saved because he or she knew how to put their bayonet training to use….

    Obama could do this, but he is unAmerican and hates this country. He has from day one, been working hard to fundamentally change the ideals of American tradition by loading the country full of illegals and allowing Muslims to overtake our courts and put fear into the minds of it’s citizens.

    It’s working!
