Look Mom! No Hands!

So the infamous Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead. After all these years and plenty of blood, mostly civilian, we finally got ONE incompetent bad guy leader. Congratulations. I guess his New Balance sneakers didn’t carry him far enough.

Of course, if his terrorist cell operates anything like those of the FLN insurgency in Algeria he’ll be replaced with one of four or five guys who actually knew him. Even if they don’t, his group will be replaced by any of the other dozens of insurgent groups in Iraq. But kudos anyway.

It’s a funny thing about trophies – there are always so many more to win.
