Zarkawi is DEAD!

Zarkawi has been killed!


From Fox News:
BAGHDAD, Iraq — Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda-linked militant who led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings, kidnappings and hostage beheadings in Iraq, has been killed in a U.S. air raid north of Baghdad, Iraq’s prime minister said Thursday.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said al-Zarqawi was killed along with seven aides Wednesday evening in a house 30 miles northeast of Baghdad in the volatile province of Diyala.

“Today, al-Zarqawi was eliminated,” al-Maliki told a news conference, drawing loud applause from reporters as he was flanked by U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and U.S. Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq.

Al-Maliki said the air strike was the result of intelligence reports provided to Iraqi security forces by residents in the area, and U.S. forces acted on the information.

“Those who disrupt the course of life, like Al-Zarqawi, will have a tragic end,” he said.

Khalilzad added “the death of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi is a huge success for Iraq and the international war on terror.”

The Jordanian-born militant, who is believed to have personally beheaded at least two American hostages, became Iraq’s most wanted militant, as notorious as Usama bin Laden, to whom he swore allegiance in 2004. The United States put a $25 million bounty on his head, the same as bin Laden.

Those who live by the sword, shall die by the sword!

A tip of the GM Derby to Gribbit's Word

You could almost sense (well, forget "almost"), you could sense the disappointment from the left on television this morning from the news. There were a lot of "yeah, but's"--yeah but, he hasn't gotten OBL; yeah but, he got Hussein and that didn't help and this won't either; yeah but, someone else will take his place; yeah but, Bush was the one who caused him to go bad, anyway; and on and on and on. In fact, the dad of the no-war guy who was beheaded came out today and blamed Bush rather than Zarqawi. No one that I heard from the left saw this as positive. If people want to defeat terrorists, they should understand that the Democrats won't attempt it unless they're convinced that it will give them a political advantage. Clinton showed this with the first WTC bombing and the Democrats for decades showed a lack of will in fighting the cold war.

Another telling response was observed by Bill Bennett. Upon getting the news, the Iraqi press corps broke out in cheers and applause. Yet, when Bush broke the news to our own press corps at the Rose Garden, there was relative silence.

And is Berg's dad whacked out, or what?

Among the Left and the Democrats....there seem to be far, far too many people that either: just flat do not know all the facts...or, just flat hate America and the best things it stands for.

I have yet to really hear these two (which are often one) laud, applaud, and cheers our military.

I have yet to hear them state, with any exactitude, what their plan would be for winning the WAR against our enemies.

Yep, he's dead, conflicting stories as to exactly HOW but hey, it doesn't matter, he is DEAD... I am very happy he's dead too... That's one less ragheaded, murdering Islamic fanatic we have to kill...

But there's going to be hundreds step forward to take his place, there will be thousands step forward that are willing to commit murder and acts of terrorism and homicide bombings in his name and in his memory...

This is FAR from over, and frankly, it's only going to get worse, I think the US government knew that from the start, at least, I hope they did and statements to this weren't just 'reaction'... I hope some thought went into the 'aftermath'...

But it is NOT over, and there is only one way it will EVER be over, and that is when every Christian on the face of the earth is either dead or has sincerely converted to being a follower of Islam themselves OR, every Muslim on the face of this earth is DEAD... Wiped from existence... Gone, destroyed, as if they NEVER were...

Personally, I am all for the wiping out of the ENTIRE sect of MADMEN... ALL of them... Each and every one of the SOBs...

Some of you that have known me for a while will remember this:

Once in a while, genocide is a GOOD thing...

This is one of those times because if we don't destroy them, they will surely try to destroy us...

All I wanna know is this: where's the wake. His poor family and friends'll need some "funeral food" and I wanna send a case of Spam.

Find the funeral, send Fred Phelps and crew as the US representatives, then bomb the WHOLE THING...

The world will be a better place..

As Scott ott said:
The Democrats fight on, despite zarqawis death, in the war on the war on terror.
Keep up te good work, American Heroes!
You won a major battle!
