Ding dong, Zarqawi's dead

Reports are coming in from every direction this morning that al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been killed by a U.S. airstrike after allegedly being sold out by some of his own people.

I'm not seeing a downside to this news. I'm hoping that there are enough bits of him left that not only a positive identification can be made, but also so that they can all be gathered together and fed to pigs. Not that I'm anti-Islamic like some people I know, who think that all Muslims should be prohibited from traveling by air in the U.S. and prohibited from immigrating to anywhere in North America. (A word of advice: if you feel this way, maybe you should have "NO MUSLIMS" tattooed across your chest. I know a few Muslims who are also surgeons and heart specialists, and you might feel more comfortable not having them poking around your insides with a scalpel while you're unconscious.)

This may not change anything. The capture of SaddamHussein and the deaths of his evil bastard sons Uday and Qusay didn't change anything. But for the moment, I'm going to let myself feel a little bit optimistic.
