This Week's Carnival of Revolutions:
Carnival Home Base:
Hello again! This is an Open Mic edition of the Pundit Roundtable, I am your host Ken McCracken. First, some very useful links regarding the war in the Middle East:
Pajamas Media has been bringing consistent updates on the war - this is actually the best starting place in my opinion.
And do go check out Tigerhawk's excellent analysis Israel At War.
Israellycool is liveblogging the war very thoroughly, obviously from an Israeli perspective.
AllahPundit has been all over the conflict as well, over at HotAir.
The Truth Laid Bear has a superb roundup of Palestinian, Israeli and Lebanese blogger reactions.
Now, we did get a couple of responses to the topic for this week:
Israel is now fighting a two-front war against Hezboallah and Hamas. Tell us what outcome you would like to see, and make a bold prediction and tell us what you think will actually happen.
Give us any good links or juicy information you have on this conflict.
Please welcome Roundtable newcomer Bruce "McQ" McQuain from QandO:
Our own Justin B. of Ski-Blog.com (and now WILLisms.com also!) comes by for a visit:
The Host's Last Word: What I'd like to see happen - I'd like to see Hezboallah erased from the map, such that even the memory of them is lost to history. It is an absolute abomination that the potential of a democratic, pluralistic and modern Lebanon is held hostage by well-armed Islamofascist terrorists bent on returning the entire region to the seventh century, and waging permanent war upon Israel.
I'd like to see Bashar Assad's regime toppled by the Syrian people themselves, as they wake from their slumber and try to pull themselves into the 21st century.
I'd like the Palestinian people to finally realize that they are beaten, and that their own leadership is a far worse enemy to them than Israel could ever be.
Bold Predictions: Hezboallah will go into hiding, avoid direct confrontation with the Israelis, and manage to survive on as a cancer in the region. The Lebanese army will not be successful in rooting them out. Israel will run out of targets to hit, will not get their soldier hostages back, and Israel will withdraw from Lebanon and Gaza, and the status quo ante will continue. Israel will not attack Syria at the behest of the United States, in order to prevent a wider conflict with Iran that will lead to stepped-up Iranian attacks on Iraq.
In short, the conflict will achieve nothing.
I hope I am wrong.

Yay! Justin B. is awesome. Does that mean he will be a regular?

Will asked me to work as a semi-regular while he does secret work. He won't even tell us what it is, but I saw his name listed in Heidi's entry in Who's Who under owner and when Heidi wrote the op-ed piece in the NYT recently about her secret ball fetching mission, she may have outed him. I already received a call from Novak.

That Heidi is such a tattle tail...I may get to keep her soon! She is real funny.

Will needs to post about his baby again.
