Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi Blown To Tiny Bits
by Cordeiro
I took great pleasure in reading today that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al Qeda in Iraq, had assumed room temperature as a result of a US airstrike. Seven of his closest friends joined him in his demise. Perhaps I should clarify that parts of al-Zarqawi assumed room temperature. Some of him could not be found.

Tips leading to the targeting of al-Zarqawi's location came from Jordanian sources inside Iraq. In other words, somebody sold him out.

In a press conference announcing al-Zarqawi's demise, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki - flanked by U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and U.S. General George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, announced that "al-Zarqawi was eliminated."

Sometimes the feeling of the words get lost in transcription or translation. What the Prime Minister meant to say was "we got the son of a bitch."

Lest we forget, somewhere there's a US strike fighter pilot who executed his or her assigned duties flawlessly. Whoever you are, look me up when you get back stateside. Your choice of beverage is on me. Good shooting.

Here endeth the lesson.
