Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is Dead

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the self-proclaimed al-Qaida leader in Iraq, is finally dead. He led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and kidnappings and taunted the coalition as he tried to fuel a civil war between Shiites and Sunnis. While the insurgency may slow down some, I do not think it will disappear. However, this is a major victory and I applaud our military for it's vigilance and determination to make Iraq more peaceful. I also rejoice with Iraqis that wanted him dead so that they can begin to live with less fear. The Iraqi people perhaps are beginning to stand on their own. Initials reports indicate that Iraqi citizens supplied information that helped the operation to track this monster down and kill him.

You won't see liberal elites cheering al-Zarqawi's death very loudly. I know liberals in this country will be dismayed because even in the face of this major victory they will find a way to slam President Bush or whine about how his polls will swing upward. To the elitist left, deaths of innocent Iraqis are always preferred rather than supporting liberty in that nation. To support liberty in Iraq would mean supporting President Bush. They would choke on their own vomit first. Well, libs, start chokin'.

UPDATE 06/08/06: What did I tell ya! LOL! The whining at KOS begins...

UPDATE 06/08/06: On the other hand, see what an Iraqi blogger has to say...
