Carnival Home Base:
Hello! Welcome back to the PUNDIT ROUNDTABLE, our semi-regular thrashing out of the issues. I am your host, Ken McCracken. Here is the topic for this week:
Topic : On a scale of 1 to 10, how important a development is the death
of Zarqawi for Iraq? Why?
Now, I only got one response back this week from all the pundits I tried to contact. Normally, I would cancel the Roundtable, or put it off for another week. But considering our sole pundit is the QUEEN OF ALL EVIL I thought that might just be a bad idea. So here we have Roundtable newcomer, Rosemary Esmay!
The Host's Last Word: As a strategic victory in Iraq, killing Zarqawi is big, but not that big. I'd give it a 5. Zarqawi is not responsible for much of the ongoing terrorist violence in Iraq - the ex-Ba'athist dead enders are. I'd bump this up to a 7 if we could find out that Zarqawi was responsible for terrorist acts such as blowing up the Golden Mosque in Samarra, which led to the type of sectarian violence that Zarwqawi was so desperately trying to foment.
But the real victory with Zarqawi's death took place here, in the United States. I give it a 9. The MSM was forced to do wall-to-wall coverage on this critical political victory for George W. Bush, and this will no doubt bolster much of the lagging support for the war, ensuring that it does not succumb to 'Vietnamization'.
I keep saying this: the 'insurgency' cannot defeat us in Iraq - they can only defeat us here at home.
That's all! Come back next week for the next edition of PUNDIT ROUNDTABLE!
