Today's Cartoon: Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi Killed in U.S. Airstrike

Let's see here, two 500 pound missiles dropped directly on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's "safe house", reducing the house and everything around it (and in it) into smoldering rubble; and yet there was STILL enough of the guy left to for them to not only make a visual identification, but to take his portrait and present it in a gorgeous gold frame to the press, like some sort of "war trophy" to later be hung over the White House fireplace, next the portraits of Uday and Qusay.

Now that's what I call "precision bombing".

I guess that's why they used "laser guided" missiles instead of their regular ones. Otherwise Zarqawi would have probably been turned into toothpaste and ruined the whole "photo-op"... or is that "Psy-ops"? I always get those two mixed up ;)

Actually, with all the previous times that Zarqawi and been reported dead, I can't help but wonder if this is indeed, "The Final Chapter". You see, like cats most "bogeymen" (ex. "Jason Vorhees" and "Freddy Krueger") have around nine lives (or sequels). Currently, Zarqawi has only been defeated 4 times, which if you do the math means that we're still not out of the woods just yet; and even though the U.S. may actually has his body this time, that doesn't mean that Zarqawi is any less of a threat ("Michael Myers" anyone?).

I say; to be on the safe side, shoot the remains out into space. Let him be the future's problem, when he returns to Earth 5000 years from now... Around the time that the "War on Terror" FINALLY ends and everyone is looking for something to do ;)
