Thinking blog awards

Armchairgeneralist has generously awarded me a "Thinking Blogger Award," something that was started by DKatASilentCacaphony (no relation.) This is an attempt to construct a pyramid, essentially, of thoughtful blogs. Here are the rules:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Congratulations - You've won a "Thinking Blogger" award!

1. Informed Comment Prof. Juan Cole's very comprehensive daily summary of events in Iraq and the Middle East.

2. A more relaxed commentary on the same subject by Williams professor Mark Lynch.

3. Nur Al-Cubicle : More comments on the same region featuring the opinions of the foreign press. She's a frequent commenter here as well.

4. Baghdad Burning I don't suppose she needs me to publicize her, and I'm concerned that she hasn't posted anything since Christmas, but her reports from Baghdad are essential.

5. WarHistorian The state of military history.

Let 100 intelligent flowers bloom. . .two new posts from the weekend below.

Riverbendblog is back posting as of 20th February re the appalling violation of Sabrine Al-Janabi.

BTW the link you posted needs adjusting http x 2.

Congratulations to you and nur-al-cubicle. Understandable why you are both part of the pyramid.
