Today marks an important victory in the United States’ war on terrorism. Announced only a little over an hour ago, the top insurgent in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, was killed in an air raid by US F-16 fighter jets. His body was identified through photographs, scars, and finger prints. On the same day as his death, three car bombs were set off in Baghdad. For what it might be, I am of the opinion those bombs were going to be set off today one way or another. Most likely, they were going off the same time Zarqawi was being killed.
Fact of the Matter
The fact of the matter on this is that the death of the man who is considered the number three man in al-Queda will deliver a major blow to terrorists around the world. As it was pointed out by military analysts on television, if the United States can get information about the inside of the power circle for our newest enemy an use it to our advantage. This death shows that our intelligence gathering DOES pay off. This death DOES show that a new chapter in Iraq’s history is about to unfold. However, more importantly, this death DESTROYS the liberal media’s machine that is bent to undermine the US military and our job in the War on Terror.
