Zarqawi in al-Akhira

Yes, he's in the afterlife. I am much relieved, and I can't help but be happy about it.

US Military Statement on Zarqawi's Death

You can argue, and I would agree, that without our invading Iraq he might never have joined his group to al-Qa'ida. You can argue that he would have stayed bottled up in some isolated, irrelevant corner of Iraq. And again, I would agree with you. You can even argue, and again I would agree with you, that it would have been better to have captured him instead of just wiping him out with air attacks. But come on, who could NOT be happy, or at least relieved, that the guy is out of the action. Hey, I'm happy.

Now we have to see what effect this will have on the war in Iraq.
