What Are Your Favorite Blogs?

A new decade has started and it's high time to update our blogroll. Many previously good blogs are now inactive or boring. What blogs do you read on international politics in general and transatlantic relations in particular? Which European or North American bloggers analyze best the most important issues? Whose posts shall we feature and discuss here on Atlantic Review?

I appreciate your recommendations!!! Don't limit yourself to bloggers. Feel free to include columnists, think tankers etc. Anybody who is worth reading concerning transatlantic issues. Thank you!

Thank you all! So many conservative blogs! So much US domestic stuff. They write so little about transatlantic relations and North American and European policies on international issues. Hardly anything on Atlantic Review’s core topics. Yet, I have decided to give a closer look to [url=http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/]Arms Control Wonk[/url], [url=http://counterterrorismblog.org/]Counterterrorism Blog[/url], [url=http://www.commentarymagazine.com/blogs/index.php/category/contentions]Contentions[/url], [url=http://www.longwarjournal.org/]The Long War Journal[/url], [url=http://www.michaeltotten.com/]Michael Totten[/url], [url=http://www.eureferendum.blogspot.com/]Eureferendum[/url] and then perhaps blogroll some of them. [url=http://geimint.blogspot.com/]IMINT & Analysis[/url] and [url=http://www.michaelyon-online.com/]Michael Yon[/url] are interesting, but too technical and/or military for me. I will have another look at [url=http://larussophobe.wordpress.com/]La Russophobe[/url], [url=http://www.atimes.com/atimes/others/spengler.html]Spengler[/url], [url=http://faustasblog.com/]Fausta's Blog[/url], [url=http://www.city-journal.org/]City Journal[/url], [url=http://www.marksteyn.com]Mark Steyn[/url], [url=http://www.pajamasmedia.com]Pajamas Media[/url] and [url=http://pajamasmedia.com/richardfernandez/]Belmont Club[/url], but so far they don’t seem to be relevant to Atlantic Review. [url=http://atlantic-community.org]Atlantic Community[/url] and [url=http://no-pasaran.blogspot.com/]No Parasan[/url] is already in our blogroll and will stay there.

Joerg Wolf on :

Or could someone figure out how to setup a smart filter at Yahoo Pipes for the RSS Feeds of all the above blogs. A smart combination of keywords like “NATO, transatlantic relations, ISAF, Iran, Europe, United States, EU etc etc etc” might deliver some good results. That would enable me to read only those posts on these blogs that are relevant to AC. Anybody interested in trying to find the right combination at Yahoo Pipes?

Marie Claude on :

uh no pasaran is hardly a reliable place for informations, since their main objective is to show how "evil" we are, from which we only can apply the goodwin argument of counter bashing !

Pat Patterson on :

Godwin's Law, "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1." Since No Pasaran rarely refers to Hitler and never makes the comparison of France to Hitler then a disagreement with NoPasa needs to be something more than an internet joke

Marie Claude on :

you gives the origin of the godwin argument, but not that name has become a "label" (like tartuffe) for ending a discussion or for denying it it's your love of details or your nitpicking mind that replied to me ?

Pat Patterson on :

That is an interesting claim maybe applicable in France but after checking several sites the topic ender is still consider Hitler.

Joerg Wolf on :

I would appreciate more recommendations! Especially liberal blogs, even though, I got the impression that liberals care less about writing/criticizing/blaming/dissing Europe than conservatives do, which could explain why there are less liberal blogs that are relevant for Atlantic Review. Or not?

Pat Patterson on :

Two well-written liberal blogs would be the UK sourced Harry's Place and the US sourced Marc Cooper(Cooper was Salvador Allende's English translator and friend). But I've wondered about the lack of even rabidly partisan liberal blogs that deal with international issues and still have no clue as to their rarity.

John in Michigan, US on :

In my reading I just post anything worthwhile to del.icio.us and tag it ar...I can't really think of worthy specific, transatlantic blogs except for atlantic-community.org. http://www.eurotrib.com/ is very progressive, and deals with transatlantic issues a lot. A problem is that there is a high ratio of noise to signal (lots of preaching to the choir and US bashing). However, a few of the posters there are worth following, such as Jerome a Paris. Maybe I will try to figure out Yahoo Pipes, no promises.
