was it him that killed the English woman who had lived in Iraq for about 25 years running a charity looking after iraqi children?

good riddance but i am sure there are many to take his place as the country spirals into self destruction.
Yes its the same monster.

I hope his death was very painful and that he died in agony. I also hope that they put his body on public display like Mussolini at the end of WWII.

Well, at least now he can join the 9/11 hijackers for drinks in hell - hoping they'll save a spot for Bin Laden as well.

P.S.: This reply is dedicated to Nick Berg and the other innocent victims of Zarqawi's butchery.......

REST IN PIECES.........

I struggle to believe in religion, any religion, but if he had a god and therefore an opposite to God I hope he languishes there and is punished for his crimes against people and humanity.

Did I read somewhere that there was a £25 million ransom for him? One of his trusted men is probably about to be living a life of luxury. Thats loyalty for you

A more positive development is the word that the Iraqi cabinet is finally going to be filled, steps forward for a free and stable Iraq.

The forces of Islamic theocracy are being brought to bear by the militias, it is these groups and not the salafist insurgency that represent the biggest threat to Iraqi democracy.

(AP) Al-Qaida in Iraq confirmed the death of its leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and vowed it will continue its "holy war" in a statement posted on the Web on Thursday.

"We want to give you the joyous news of the martyrdom of the mujahed sheik Abu Musab al-Zarqawi," said the statement, signed by "Abu Abdel-Rahman al-Iraqi," identified as the deputy "emir" or leader of al-Qaida in Iraq.

"The death of our leaders is life for us. It will only increase our persistence in continuing holy war so that the word of God will be supreme," it said.

this is obviously great news... it'll be very interesting to see what happens from here on out. i'd imagine there will be a rash of attacks in the short term, but this could be a massive blow in the long term.

i find that very offensive.

being anti-war is not being pro-insurgent.

this is a good thing. no question. this was one of the worst men in the world.

i don't think it will matter too much tactically, since the insurgency is like a hydra and there are many who can take his place, but this is a big blow against the morale of the insurgents and a big boost to the morale of the occupiers and the Iraqi Army who have been saddled with a near-impossible task due to the ineptness of the current adminsitration.

other things i'm hearing on blogs was that it might have been locals who gave up his location. this strikes me as perhaps the most positive news. the only positive thing that has come out of this low-level Civil War is that it has unmasked the nihilism at the heart of Al-Qaeda and the sectarian militias.

now, this is Maliki's card to play -- can he use this to create a sense of unity and purpose and prevent the current slide towards anarchy?

Why did the US military frame the picture of his dead head in a nice golden wooden frame?

That is my question.

They should have made a collage on used toilet paper.
