All Praise To Allah!!!

What TERRIFIC news!!! There may be a lot more to do to secure the nation of Iraq, but today the job just got easier. Congratulations to our troops and the Iraqi security forces on this significant kill. Got a couple of his fellow henchmen as an added bonus!!!

FYI... A must read for anyone interested in getting an accurate assessment of the Iraqi theater.

Would you consider the woman and child an added bonus, or acceptable collateral damage?

Hadn't heard about any others. Who were they and why were they hanging out with this guy?

Would you considerthe countless innocent women and children this guy has killed acceptable colleteral damage?

Nope - just being a jerk.

The article you linked to said a woman and child were found among the dead.

The father of one of his American victims had this to say:

"I feel doubly bad, though, because Zarqawi is also a political figure, and his death will re-ignite yet another wave of revenge, and revenge is something that I do not follow, that I do want ask for, that I do not wish for against anybody. And it can't end the cycle. As long as people use violence to combat violence, we will always have violence."

Perhaps... There have been other reports that I read that claim that the intel for this bombing raid came from Iraqi's, an individual within al-Zarqawi's own group, and Jordan. People have obviously had enough of this guy, and I can't say this about too many people, but I'm glad he's dead and hope all 72 of his virgin's give him the clap.

Michael Berg: "Well, you know, I'm not saying Saddam Hussein was a good man, but he's no worse than George Bush. Saddam Hussein didn't pull the trigger, didn't commit the rapes. Neither did George Bush. But both men are responsible for them under their reigns of terror. I don't buy that. Iraq did not have al Qaeda in it. Al Qaeda supposedly killed my son.
Under Saddam Hussein, no al Qaeda. Under George Bush, al Qaeda.
Under Saddam Hussein, relative stability. Under George Bush, instability.

Under Saddam Hussein, about 30,000 deaths a year. Under George Bush, about 60,000 deaths a year. I don't get it. Why is it better to have George Bush the king of Iraq rather than Saddam Hussein?"

Sorry man, but this guy may have lost his son and for that I’m sorry, but he makes no sense to me. Zarqawi was scum and worthy of death. It won’t end all the problems, but it will deal a blow most definitely.

BTW... Read the McCaffrey memo. It's worth it. Very fair assessment I'd say. With this latest development and with the Iraqi parliament naming some key ministers I look forward to his next one.

Yeah, you're not getting any argument from me on this one, just doing a little devil's advocation here. Certainly Zarqawi had it coming.
