Buh-Bye, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead, given a one way ticket to the afterlife by a couple of 500 pound bombs. I hope he enjoys his 72 white grapes.

This is a victory for coalition troops, but victories in battles are fleeting. There is now an opening at the top of al-Qaida in Iraq. It is very possible that someone worse than al-Zarqawi could ascend to that position. Our job at this point should be to divide and conquer al-Qaida of Iraq while that power vacuum is at work.
