The Council has spoken!

And now...  the winning entries in the Watcher's Council vote for this week are MLK Day -- A Singular Holiday by Rhymes With Right, and A Framework for Thinking About Iraq Strategy by Small Wars Journal.  All members, please be sure to link to both winning entries (and to the full results of the vote) in a post.  I actually had to cast a tie-breaking vote in the non-council category this week...  I enjoyed Confederate Yankee's post about the ubiquitous Jamil Hussein, but Dave Kilcullen's look at the “wicked” problem of Iraq ultimately won me over.  Thanks to everyone for all the great entries this week...  I'm eager to see next week's entries!  Here are the full tallies of all votes cast:
