Zarqawi - Special Delivery Package to Hibhib
Can anyone sign for two 500 pound packages?
Wonderful news this morning, as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in the village of Hibhib, Iraq.
US F-16 aircraft dropped two 500 pound bombs on the safe house where he'd been staying. He probably never felt any twinge of fear, nor did he know what hit him. That's OK. Those beautiful 500 pound bombs removed Iraq's worst terrorist from existence, and that's a wonderful thing.
There will be those who may think Zarqawi as some sort of Iraqi Freedom Fighter. Well, he wasn't an Iraqi, and he was not a freedom fighter. He fought for terror, for torture, for oppression, for death. He sawed off the heads of living human beings. He really did this. He spent much of the past year trying to start a civil war between the Sunni and the Shia in a country that he was not native to.
Lets hope that this is a turning point in the Iraq War. Anyone who knows me knows that I support this effort, for reasons already stated.
A tip of the hat to the Americans, British and Iraqis who are fighting over there, and especially to anyone who had anything to do with yesterday's mission to Hibhib. Goddamnit, you're good!!
As Christopher Hitchens says, here
"If we had withdrawn from Iraq already, as the "peace" movement has been demanding, then one of the most revolting criminals of all time would have been able to claim that he forced us to do it. That would have catapulted Iraq into Stone Age collapse and instated a psychopathic killer as the greatest Muslim soldier since Saladin. As it is, the man is ignominiously dead and his dirty connections a lot closer to being fully exposed. This seems like a good day's work to me."
