Zarqawi Whacked.

One more of the hydra's heads has been lopped off with the death of this fragrant piece of human offal. It is only a matter of time before another one or two emerge to replace him.

Asymmetric warfare grinds along, however. Despite the fact that al-Qaeda is essentially unable to come up with an equivalent coup, like perhaps hunting down and killing a senior U.S. military officer, Islamists have long allowed for the persistence of an organizational structure despite such setbacks. The doctrine of "Nizam, la tanzim" ("System, not organization") as formulated by Spanish-Syrian terror strategist Abu Musab al'Suri, has surfaced alive and well in Toronto. This would-be Maozedong of Islamist asymmetric warfare postulates a radically decentralized method of waging warfare by spontaneously arising, widespread, isolated, self-motivated and self-contained cells.

The water (or swamp) in which these twisted fish are expected to swim can only be drained with difficulty in liberal democracies such as ours. At the very least, alternatives to Wahhabist education have to be provided by Muslim communities who have failed to present a more moderate and traditional version of Islam to their young people (see Bernard Lewis' comments linked in post below). Also, it would be nice if self-hating and suicidal left-wing fools would stop mouthing statements that sound like they were lifted verbatim from Osama bin Laden's fatwas. And, as another vain wish, can the press avoid being duped into disseminating Islamist propaganda (assuming they're not happily promoting it)?

A statement from Abu Abdel-Rahman al-Iraqi puts a positive spin on events: "The death of our leaders is life for us." La ch'aim.

The armies of Allah will definitely come up with not one but many replacements for Zarqawi. Unfortunately, their message of hatred and bigotry is heeded by so many fellow countryment that the U.S., I'm afraid is wasting time in Iraq.

Hopefully Muslim communities accross the world will rally in defense of real Muslim values instead of supporting Bathist propaganda and indoctrinating their children with hatred.

Patience may not be glorious or glamorous in the fast food drive through 24-7 need it yesterday societey we find ourselves enveloped in , but thank my Christian God our Commander-In Chiefe and military know the value of showing up each and everyday and doing the job at hand. Through patience and all the bullshit noise from back home , they stayed on track and got the mission done .

well, I'm following the advice of Greg, whose profile is found @ . . .

In a comment, he appended to one of my posts, found at the other end of hyperlink: . . .

oh, yeah, the post's formal title is "moon stink whupt gollum butt" . . .

in case you're curious, "moon stink" is a poetic, of sorts, reference to the first message from the moon to the earth, specifically, "the eagle has landed".

By the way, Greg says he'll ponder my remark about the "average Israeli". . . .

anyway, if you get some time, please consider visiting my blog . . .
