AIRSTRIKE KILLS AL-ZARQAWI
I hope he saw it coming. I hope he knew he was going to die before he died.
It's great listening to the liberals today. "I don't know that we should celebrate anyone's death." "George Bush's poll numbers are still in the toilet." "This doesn't mean anything, the violence will still continue." I've even heard one say that this will be like the Hydra--cut off one head, others grow in its place.
You'd think that liberals, the ones who love their country and whose patriotism is not to be impugned, could accept one, just one, victory in this war, even a tactical victory such as this one. But no, we can't have that, can we?
The more liberal news outlets--those poor anchors. It's all they can do to spin this as bad news for America. I wonder why, then, we're seeing those Iraqi police officers dancing in the streets. Perhaps those closest to the situation, and to the murderous bloodshed that Zarqawi wrought on innocent Iraqis, are glad to see him dead for a reason. But what do they know? They're not sitting back in America, sipping mimosas, hating George Bush every minute of every day.
Every day is a great day to be an American. We Americans, and Iraqis too, have one more thing to be thankful for today.
Update: Think I was kidding about the liberals? Here's a roundup from liberal blogs.
