Zarqawi In Context

The terrorist leader Zarqawi is dead. Let’s start there, plain and simple. Whatever else someone wants to say about his death, the one thing we can say for sure, is that this very evil man will never kill again.

Some on the Left warn about making him a martyr. By that logic, it was a shame we got rid of Hitler, or that Stalin is dead. But when sanity looks in, it reminds us that we can’t force terrorists to be anything but monsters, and whether they make Zarqawi their idol, or Bin Laden, or someone else, it changes nothing on our side. The mission remains the same:

To protect the innocent, it is necessary to find and kill those who would kill the innocent.

Everything else is details

I for one like plain and simple.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

It amazes, but does not surprise, to see the liberal reactions to the death of this monster...

Another reminder of why they must be rebuked in the voters box this fall...

Agreed. It's a shame the left can't join in celebrating a victory for the good guys.

Well said, as usual, DJ. But, if the Libs are so concerned with Zarqawi becoming a martyr, I can't wait to see how distressed they become when we "canonize" Bin Laden.
