"WE," Dave? So, "WE" are not "the Arabs," then, and "the Arabs" are not "WE," right? 'Cause "THEY" were apparently dancing in the streets, at least in Iraq. Which figures, as they're, yanno, "the Arabs," and not "WE." Fucking savages, "the Arabs." It's good... no, great, to be a white person, isn't it, Dave?

Unlike the Arabs who celebrated 9-11 by dancing in the streets; WE do not celebrate any death. WE are just glad that a murdering bastard has met his just reward and cannot lead and order more murders. This is not an expression of celebration, it is a sigh of relief....

I think it's interesting that they "found" al-Zarqawi AFTER Bush's ratings dropped to an all-time low AND when his attempt at changing the focus from the war to banning homosexuals from marrying was called at face value...when his motive is to improve his image and ensure Republican majority....seems to me that this death was almost timed...the goofy grin on GW's face made me wonder if that wasn't the plan all along...who knows.

It won`t end the killings, but it is good that he is dead now.

BTW, why do those bastards always hide in places where there are children and other civilians?

Shows that they don`t give a damn for the people they claim to fight for.

"On this side, George W. Bush and his tag team: Cheney, Rumsfeld, and company. Over in that corner, Saddam Hussein and his tag team: his sons, Tarik Aziz and company. All of the combatants are armed with great big ol' scimitars and are wearing only loin clothes. When the bell rings, I want you all to come out fighting, and I hope that you cut each other to ribbons."

Rapaire:

You want a war, have a war. Between armies, preferably in some God-forsaken place where civilians ain't. Better yet, let the leaders of the countries involved fight it out -- the heads of state, the ministers, cabinet members, etc. can compose the fighters.

I remember the famous photo of Saddam with that shotgun. Maybe a Saddam/Cheney bout would have been more appropriate?

Arne,

I know that his death will not bring Berg back to life. BUT, his death will maybe prevent some new deaths in the future. I do not revel when humans are killed, but people like that aren't quite what I'd call human.

I wish ALL the terrorists were dead, and I can't get too worked up over al-Zarqawi.

No matter who or what side they purport to be on.

But the killing of civilians by either side is wrong. To justify it by calling upon the Deity makes it obscene.

Interesting that only one person mentioned the child killed in the airstrike.
Unfortunately more children will die before this is over.
The responsibility lies with one person only.

I caught a CNN interview with Congressman John Murtha, and the interviewer said that had US forces withdrawn to the periphery as Murtha had suggested they would likely not have gotten Zarqawi. ??

How much involvement do you need to call in an airstrike?
As LRex pointed out the only problem is that the US has lost and they dont realize it yet.

just out of curiousity how many of the above posters - if given a machine gun - would mow down a group of people in a room including women and children - knowing that Zarqawi is one of them.

thats the problem with war (especially a push-button one from 4 miles away) you kill a lot of innocent people to get a couple bad ones.
That goes for the whole of Iraq.

peace:

I'm with Wolfgang on this one. Too bad it didn't happen years ago.

The Dubya maladministration had a chance (see here and here) to go after the Ansar al-Islam camps and Zarqawi (in the northern "no-fly" zone) before the Iraq war. But they didn't do it when they had the chance, in part because Zarqawi and the Ansar folks were part of the purported Saddam/al-Qaeda link, and getting him would remove one of the justifications as to why we "had" to invade Iraq....

Just so we know what the U.S. "plan" was. Yes, now the seventh or so "#3 guy in al-Qaeda" is (apparently) dead. We're "turning [another] corner". And in other news, Nicholas Berg is still dead.

I hope any celebrations are appropriate to the occasion.

Cheers,

What about the methods used?
Who else died in the "safe house"?

reminds me of the IRA Shankill bombing just before ceasefire; they acted on intelligence that Loyalist paramilitary leaders were meeting in the building. Didn't matter that "ordinary civilians" were downstairs. As it happens the IRA were too late as the paramilities had already left. If timing had been better, only a small group of supporters would have cheered because IRA are non-government. So what makes it good when state armies act like terrorists?

(also reminds me of some Israeli actions, like that crippled extremist Muslim religious leader - I forget his name - they bombed)

sorry for somewhat disjointed thoughts, but I don't see others raising the issue so I thought I should write something

Stan Bigley, the brother of the British civil engineer Ken Bigley, who was kidnapped and beheaded by Zarqawi's group in 2004, said he was glad the terror leader was "off the face of the earth, not just for Ken, but for all the people he has killed".

I agree. Why should I be happy about the death of al-Zarqawi? He is now a martyr and his death will only inflame his followers.

I am much sorrier for the families who have been destroyed by this war. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death is just one among many. There are many more waiting to take his place.

Good link, 6.

It's great news for Iraq but not for the U.S. Americans are not politically complex. We're really very simple. You're either with us or you're against us. Muslim politics is a different animal entirely. Zarqawi kept it simple for us. We knew who the enemy was and it never changed. MAde things easy to predict. With Zarqawi gone, Iraqis can now engage in the Muslim politics Zaraqwi intimidated them from practicing (it was confusing and therefore threatening to him also). It's a very difficult, fickle system that I KNOW the U.S. simply does not know how to play.

It would also be extremely naive to assume this was a huge blow to al-Qaeda. I'll guarantee you their leaders are pumping their fists and cheering. They never liked Zarqawi, never really wanted him. They didn't care for his heavy-handed, indiscriminate, extreme violence. They wanted someone to drive out the U.S. than to turn Iraqis against one another. I'm very afraid the next guy to take his place is going to be this charismatic folk-hero-type who will unite Shiite and Sunni against us. All the Iraqis are looking for is a good leader not in the pocket of Americans. All al-qaeda has to do is give them someone like that. With Zarqawi out of the way, they just might pull it off and it will be all over for us if they manage it. And I see no reason they couldn't manage it.

It's a very bad situation when you're claiming to help a nation whose interests are not yours and whose benefit is to your detriment. That's a doomed venture. And this is a doomed venture. Just as with Saddam, we're going to be sorry he's gone.

Yes, great news, for just about everyone, Doug. The native Sunni insurgent groups are rid of a psychopathic jackass who was making them look bad. Al Qaeda is, well, also rid of a psychopathic jackass who was making them look bad. Snuff-film enthusiasts and armchair babykillers got off to images of his battered corpse. And the child who was killed in the air strike won't have to grow up in a violent shithole like Bush's Iraq. Mission accomplished! And everyone wins!

Well, except for the US. We're still losing, and this won't change that. And for the majority of the Iraqi people, of course, who will continue to die in ever increasing numbers thanks to the invasion/occupation. Yeah, except for those guys, the death of one widely disliked and easily replaceable figurehead is good news, indeed! :)
