If he's not dead, he should be

This morning there are two headlines concerning Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. One is that he may be dead. The other is that his family has disowned him and denies him protection.

"Nobody here supports the insurgency," says Nissan, 47, blaming the attack Friday on Jordanian-born terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. "Even before this attack, the feelings against Zarqawi were growing. He has no religion, no sect, no humanity. He is the devil."

So most of us agree about Zarqawi's standing in the world as a man. We all grow weary of these unsubstantiated reports that certain bad guys are or may be dead. It should be remembered that we can't hang our hats on the fate of the GWOT dependent upon one or two individuals. Our enemy isn't just one or two's a corrupted faction of a theology. When Zarqawi or bin Laden fall, they will be replaced with other devils. The enemy will be defeated when these devils are no longer remembered.

    When there's a march in every country in the Middle East like the one in Jordan condemning Zarqawi, that's how we'll know we're winning

    Very true, Doug. Unless it's not.

    This is off topic. I hope that you and your broken wing have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
