They Nailed Him

Yes, they finally got him. This craziness that has been going on in Iraq because of this man will soon come to a close. I'm not going to go wild with joy or anything because I know that stuff has been planned and in the works for a while, so we can't let down our guard. I'm hopeful that the seven dead terrorists make up the bulk of the brain trust for the region.

You may want to view this news article that lists the claimed attacks by al-Zarqawi. There are many people and nations celebrating the death of this hateful man. The new Iraqi Prime Minister can finally take a legitimate lead in his country paid for by the blood of both American and Iraqi people.

What surprises me most is those who have failed to find the joy in this death. Okay, maybe joy isn't the best word here but you get the drift. Look at these articles:
Bitter Berg: No Joy in al-Zarqawi's Death
Democrats Irked Over Zarqawi's Death

The death brings both good and bad news to the world. The oil markets relaxed a little, giving the world a financial break. The Al-Qaida terror network has let us know that they are still determined to carry on despite the loss.

The War On Terror is by no means over at the death of this one man. The death of Osama or any other single terrorist in this group is a joy of magnanimous proportion but the practice of terror goes on despite these mens lack of input.

The unfailing perseverance of our American Military has provided us with the means to eliminate terror cells and protect all of us from harm. Their personal sacrifice and continued effort should not be forgotten with a single victory. Many among us seem to forget where their freedom and safety comes from. Let each and everyone of us declare our thanks and gratitude to the men and women of the United States Military.

That dollar drop in oil prices down to $71 is really going to provide relief!


This craziness that has been going on in Iraq because of this man will soon come to a close.

I'll be sure to quote you on that in about 6 months.

Sorry to snark you on my first visit, but that is some really funny stuff (especially the oil comment, the one it italics is actully a challenge because I've been saying for a long time that al-Zaqarwi is just today's terrorist. His death will change little. Only time will tell who is right).

Having said that, I appreciate that you actuallly take a position. Good on you, and good work.

See ya around.

Feel free to toss in a few odd comments. I don't disagree with anything you have said here. This is only an opportunity for Iraqi's to take control and stop hiding behind a boogieman. The key is that his own people ratted him out. There may yet be hope.

I am wondering about the dozen or so other raids also carried out on the same day. What was the net result and are we going to do anything with what we learned? Strike while the iron is hot or suffer another loss in spite of the victory.
