Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the coalition's most wanted man in Iraq, was killed in an airstrike near Baquba, jubilant U.S. and Iraqi authorities announced Thursday.
Hopefully he'll be staying dead, and maybe next time around he'll be given the chance to learn chopping people up is not the road to heaven. And no, I'm not thinking this will suddenly turn Iraq into the Land of Air Conditioners and Cellphones... there's plenty more where this guy came from. But by all accounts he was a very effective leader, and those don't just grow on trees.
Now if we can just put bin Laden in a sack and toss him down a dark hole, we'd have the trifecta. Then again, considering what the Pakistan/Afghan border is supposed to be like, he may already be there.
