This week's Battle has made me proud - a thoughtful, intelligent Battle that really probed an issue that is one of the most important we face, today. Both my Iron Blogger and The Challenger are to be congratulated for truly elevating the level of discourse and showing that severe, stark contrasts in position are not needed to have a worthwhile Battle. Nuance truly is a spice at Iron Blog.
And now, the Verdict.
Two enlightening cases, but only one victor. Challenger Frank LoPinto making a powerful indictment of the role of fanaticism in terrorism, and pushing the Iron Blogger to the limit of his abilities. But the Iron Blogger has come back strong, offering up a passionate case for the role of desperation as a true cause.
Who takes it?
Whose spleen vents supreme?
