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
