Ding dong, Zarqawi's dead.

Here we go again... Zarqawi and his spiritual leader (whatever the hell that means) were killed last night in a precision airstrike in the province of Diyala. Though we wont be graced again with a staged aircraft landing under a “Mission Accomplished” banner, be on the lookout for paste-eating members of the mainstream media eating this shit up like pudding and pie. (Earlier this morning, NBC’s Ann Curry asked Senator Joe Biden if he “pumped his fists up in the air” after hearing news of Zarqawi’s death.) I think a victory entails presenting some sort of structured, thoughtful leadership, none of which President Bush has ever displayed. A victory would assume there was careful planning and non-partisan decision-making, none of which President Bush has ever displayed. As for the reactions from Iraqis: "We want to give you the joyous news of the martyrdom of the mujahed sheik Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. "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." Some things never change. Congratulations to the military that carried out the airstrike that killed this truly abhorrent individual. Here’s to hoping that next can of whoop-ass is reserved for bin Laden. Remember him?

Thanks for giving credit to the soldiers for a job well done.

For every Iraqi that pledges to uphold the death of this vile individual there are Iraqis that applaud his demise. Ive watched reports all day and our commander in chief and his staff have NOT been waving the victory flag and they have spent quite a bit of time stating that this WILL cause backlash!! Give credit to the men and women who defend our rights because for them its a great moral booster and war is hell and at the very least got a little payback yesterday.
So continue on my liberal friend from the boonies and downplay all you want but I can bet that our men and women in uniform are overjoyed that this scum bag is a stain on the concrete now.

dmnWhere did I say the president was waving around a flag? I was talking about the paste-eating memebers of the mainstream media.

Also, I gave credit to the soldiers over there. They deserve it for having to fight this war, having to trust in their commander in chief and doing the absolute best they can with what they have over there.

How soon you forget that on April 26 of this year, 52 Republicans voted for an amendment that cut $1.9 billion in funds for troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Last year, three days before Veterans Day, the House Vet. Affairs Committee announced that for the first time in 55 years, "veterans service organizations will no longer have the opportunity to present testimony before a joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans' Affairs Committees." Again, a party-line vote with the GOP making the fnal decision.

The Republican's "support the troops" mantra is just an empty phrase to be displayed proudly on a bumper sticker.

As for you, my little conservative lackey, keep on keepin' on. Go out and buy anyother yellow ribbon or something. The true test of patriotism is how you treat veterans and keep promises to people who wore the uniform AFTER the war.
