Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most wanted terrorist in Iraq, was killed in a coalition airstrike near Baquba, jubilant U.S. and Iraqi authorities announced Thursday. (http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/06/08/iraq.al.zarqawi/index.html)

Dead at 1815L Baghdad time w00t! He was hanging in a "safehouse" about 30 miles north of Baghdad when he was assploded. This is a very big deal. This guy was a higher priority for our commanders than UBL because he was the operational leader who has made life tough for both the Iraqis and our guys in Iraq.

TF145 had been hot on this guy for about ten days now. My only regret is he probably never saw his death coming, This was the sick bastage who gave the world videotaped hostage beheadings. The Sunni's hated him as much as we did too.

As a token liberal around here I have to say that I'm uncomfortable celebrating death except when it means the end of suffering. And I like to poke fun every once in awhile when we get another #2 man in Al Qaeda. This dood has been on the most wanted list for a long time, it seems very related to the GWOT, it fits my "end of suffering" rule, and it even happened in Iraq. I got nuthin' to complain about. This is the military doing what they do best.

Speaking of the Berg kid...

Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded (by the hands of Zarqawi) in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda leader in Iraq and blamed President Bush for his son's death.

Asked what would give him satisfaction, Berg, an anti-war activist and candidate for U.S. Congress, said, "The end of the war and getting rid of George Bush."

He said that he wasn't sure that Zarqawi killed his son...when they told him that he was in the video, his response was "do you believe everything that you see on t.v. ?" So they told him that he had bragged about in one of his tapes...he didn't believe it. It is too bad that he is blinded by his hatred for Bush.

There is a rabbinic teaching that goes something like this:

After Moses parted the sea for the Jews to cross, and unparted the sea to drown Pharoah's troops, the angels danced and sang in celebration. God, hearing the party said, "How can you dance when my children are dying?"

With that story in mind, I still find it pretty darn easy to celebrate the passing of this particular @sshole.

I am not sure what impact the death of this delusional piece of offal will have upon the Great Scheme of Things, or whether it will hasten the end of Jihad or whatever craziness is going on, but it is surely certain that ol' Al-Z ain't going to be doing anything else to anyone else ever again.

If you know the location and altitude of the camera (within 1 meter with military GPS), and the azimuth and elevation it's looking at (tenths of a degree or better, I'm guessing), it's just basic geometry. A laser range would be gravy.

No. Name one Muslim country we declared war against and attacked without provocation.

In 1998, Al-Qaeda declared war against America while Bill Clinton slept at the wheel through various terror attacks both in the U.S. and on U.S. interests abroad:

-The initial bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993
-The bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia housing American military personnel in 1996
-The bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998

After the declaration of war, terrorists hit its second U.S. military target, again under Clinton's watch, with the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in October 2000.

So, I'd say we didn't draw the sword. And, in fact, our commander in chief during all of those attacks did nothing militarily to answer.

Thankfully, we've got George W. Bush taking the fight to the terrorists instead of trying to sic attorneys on them (ala the Clinton response to the initial World Trade Center attacks and the 1998 embassy bombings).

So, now al-Zarqawi is in hell because he followed his organization's heed to take up the sword in jihad against the West. He loudly proclaimed to live by the sword, and the went out loudly under the power of two 500 pound bombs.

A break in this came b/c the Jordanians helped out. See, the late Al-Z was a Jordanian national who publicly called for the overthrow of the Hashemite monarchy (not devout enough) and even ran a couple bombings inside Jordan -- which pretty much turned the Jordanian gubmint against him.

That's where these guys mess-up. When they confine their rantings to hatred of the US and Israel its all good. When they cross over into criticizing Arab regimes, they quickly become personas non-grata and their home countries are quick to rat them out to us...which is groovy IMHO.:D

Hussein was attacked for playing chicken with the U.N. regarding his acquisition of weapons of mass destruction. His own generals thought he had them. He lost...big.

According to militant Islamic websites, Al-Zarqawi was in Iraq following the U.S.-led crushing of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Al-Zarqawi had been there to aid the Taliban's feeble attempt to defend itself.

It's Al-Zarqawi's own fault that he chose to insert himself into the Iraq situation.

klatt,
You make my point for me. Hussein had everyone fooled and worried. He brought his own downfall on himself. With U.N. permission, we gladly ended the charade.

Intelligence gathering operations from several countries admit to errors. That's old news. It still doesn't change the fact that Hussein dared the world to dethrone him and stop his weapons of mass destruction program instead of just letting Hans Blix & Company make a thorough search of it and conclude once and for all that it was non-existent. Again, faulty intelligence or not, he gambled and lost with his crazy - and literal - sabre-rattling.

Finally, the Bible is chock full of what fate awaits those who oppose Him. Al-Zarqawi not only directly opposed God in chosing Allah instead, but he also chose a path God's own son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, said would lead men to their own demise.

Al-Zarqawi's sword was often roadside, improvised explosive devices - the best technology the terrorist can produce. The sword that befell him was something along those lines, but with quite a bit more kick.

That's not what I was talking about. I was trying to get an answer from someone about the correlation between AQ & Hussein which was originally addressed here:


No. Name one Muslim country we declared war against and attacked without provocation.

In 1998, Al-Qaeda declared war against America while Bill Clinton slept at the wheel through various terror attacks both in the U.S. and on U.S. interests abroad:

-The initial bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993
-The bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia housing American military personnel in 1996
-The bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998

After the declaration of war, terrorists hit its second U.S. military target, again under Clinton's watch, with the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in October 2000.

So, I'd say we didn't draw the sword. And, in fact, our commander in chief during all of those attacks did nothing militarily to answer.

Thankfully, we've got George W. Bush taking the fight to the terrorists instead of trying to sic attorneys on them (ala the Clinton response to the initial World Trade Center attacks and the 1998 embassy bombings).

So, now al-Zarqawi is in hell because he followed his organization's heed to take up the sword in jihad against the West. He loudly proclaimed to live by the sword, and the went out loudly under the power of two 500 pound bombs.

TDTW is talking about the war with AQ and the invasion of Iraq as if they're one in the same. They are not. I fully 100% support the war with AQ and in fact have stated ad naseum that I think more should be done in regards to said war. I do not believe there is a definitive correlation between Hussein's regime and AQ's activities. As for Zarqawi, he wasn't ingratiated into AQ until 2004. Before that he was leading his own terrorist group. It wasn't until the destabilzation of Iraq that Zarqawi got into Iraq and started causing problems. So I ask you again, what relation is there between Hussein's Iraq and AQ?

Zarqawi was said to have received medical treatment in Baghdad in May and June of 2002 after being wounded in Afghanistan during the war. His leg was amputated, U.S. officials say, by a surgeon in Iraq.

Before the war, Secretary of State Colin Powell pointed to Zarqawi's al Qaeda-affiliated group that he said was operating inside Baghdad, as evidence of ties between al Qaeda and Iraq.

And never mind all the goodies in the Senate Intel Report on the Iraq war, showing the offers from Saddam to Osama for "safe haven", and meetings and financial support.

In reality, we had more reason to go to war in Iraq than we had to go to war in World War 1, the Korean War, Vietnam, etc combined.

Also a helpful reminder, the Iraq Liberation Act......Signed by that oil thirsty neoKKKon Bill Clinton.


STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

Today I am signing into law H.R. 4655, the "Iraq Liberation Act of 1998." This Act makes clear that it is the sense of the Congress that the United States should support those elements of the Iraqi opposition that advocate a very different future for Iraq than the bitter reality of internal repression and external aggression that the current regime in Baghdad now offers.

Let me be clear on what the U.S. objectives are: The United States wants Iraq to rejoin the family of nations as a freedom-loving and law-abiding member. This is in our interest and that of our allies within the region.

The United States favors an Iraq that offers its people freedom at home. I categorically reject arguments that this is unattainable due to Iraq's history or its ethnic or sectarian make-up. Iraqis deserve and desire freedom like everyone else. The United States looks forward to a democratically supported regime that would permit us to enter into a dialogue leading to the reintegration of Iraq into normal international life.

My Administration has pursued, and will continue to pursue, these objectives through active application of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. The evidence is overwhelming that such changes will not happen under the current Iraq leadership.

In the meantime, while the United States continues to look to the Security Council's efforts to keep the current regime's behavior in check, we look forward to new leadership in Iraq that has the support of the Iraqi people. The United States is providing support to opposition groups from all sectors of the Iraqi community that could lead to a popularly supported government.

On October 21, 1998, I signed into law the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1999, which made $8 million available for assistance to the Iraqi democratic opposition. This assistance is intended to help the democratic opposition unify, work together more effectively, and articulate the aspirations of the Iraqi people for a pluralistic, participa--tory political system that will include all of Iraq's diverse ethnic and religious groups. As required by the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for FY 1998 (Public Law 105-174), the Department of State submitted a report to the Congress on plans to establish a program to support the democratic opposition. My Administration, as required by that statute, has also begun to implement a program to compile information regarding allegations of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes by Iraq's current leaders as a step towards bringing to justice those directly responsible for such acts.

The Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 provides additional, discretionary authorities under which my Administration can act to further the objectives I outlined above. There are, of course, other important elements of U.S. policy. These include the maintenance of U.N. Security Council support efforts to eliminate Iraq's weapons and missile programs and economic sanctions that continue to deny the regime the means to reconstitute those threats to international peace and security. United States support for the Iraqi opposition will be carried out consistent with those policy objectives as well. Similarly, U.S. support must be attuned to what the opposition can effectively make use of as it develops over time. With those observations, I sign H.R. 4655 into law.

WILLIAM J. CLINTON

THE WHITE HOUSE,

October 31, 1998.

But Zarqawi was not part of Al Qaeda until AFTER Iraq was invaded. So his activities as a terrorist were bad and stuff, but not related to AQ at that point.

If the Senate Intel Report shows the Hussein/AQ link, show it to the country! That's what I'm saying. Don't give me WMD sh*t, give me "Look at this! Hussein is funding AQ! Holy sh*t people! Look!" Then maybe there would be more support for toppling Hussein. If W had the smoking gun that tied AQ to Hussein he would have used IT and not the weaksauce efforts he provided for the invasion.

Not according to the BBC


The next stop on his itinerary was said to be his old stamping ground - Afghanistan.

Students at his camp supposedly became experts in the manufacture and use of poison gases.

It is during this period that Zarqawi is thought to have renewed his acquaintance with al-Qaeda.

Following the 11 September 2001 attacks and the US invasion of Afghanistan, he is believed to have fled to Iraq after a US missile strike on his Afghan base.

US officials say that it was at al-Qaeda's behest that he moved to Iraq and established links with Ansar al-Islam - a group of Kurdish Islamists from the north of the country.

As you can see from my post and the numerous repostings of it, I did not link Al-Qaeda and Iraq. I took several posts to demonstrate why Hussein was oustered - playing chicken with the UN.

I then pointed out that after the U.S. drove the Taliban from power, Al-Zarqawi skittered over to Iraq and, through subsequent actions, inserted himself into the goings on there. In doing so, he put himself in the crosshairs of a couple of F-16s.

However, for the edification of Klatt and others of his mindset, I could care less when Al Qaeda became involved in Iraq. I won't be statisfied until we've cleared the scum out of Tehran and Damascus in addition to the scum we've already cleaned out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

We're just lucky Al-Qaeda chose to insert itself into Iraq so we could spend time decimating their power structure one scumbag at a time. As me and my Mexican often say, "Viva Bush!" Thank you for one omore dead scumbag. We can be thankful daily that he chose the military instead of attorneys to eradicate terrorists.

Several people just showed that he WAS a member of Al Qaeda before the invasion of Iraq. Is that good enough for you Johnny Mack?The Wikipedia entry on Zarqawi would seem to contradict that, although it does call him a "longtime ally of Osama"


Zarqawi, a longtime ally of Osama bin Laden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osama_bin_Laden), was a high-ranking member of bin Laden's Al Qaeda network, and since October 2004 had referred to his own organization Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Qaeda_in_Iraq), or Monotheism and Holy War Group, an insurgent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraqi_insurgency) network operating in Iraq, as "Al-Qaeda in Iraq". On October 21 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_21), 2004 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004), Zarqawi officially announced his allegiance to Al Qaeda; on December 27 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_27), 2004 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004), Al Jazeera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Jazeera) broadcast an audiotape (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audiotape) of bin Laden calling Zarqawi "the prince of al Qaeda in Iraq" and asked "all our organization brethren to listen to him and obey him in his good deeds."[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zarqawi#_note-cnn.com)

Before we get completely carried away, perhaps we should make sure their are functional stable states in place in Afghanastan and Iraq. Having to establish to more new gov't would be a steep challenge for the United States and the nations having the new gov't established. Functional stable democracy's don't just spring up over night.

Could our cooling economy take the strain of two addidtional wars?it's a little too early to say the economy is "cooling" in any significant way. yes, some indicators seem to suggest that, but we'll need to see a trend over several more months to be sure. lately there seems to have been a lot of "revising upward" of eco data from a few months back (much to the disappointment of the media and the left, i might add). it's quite possible we'll see some more of that in a few months. even if it slows down a little from the pace of the last several months, it will still be doing quite nicely and should continue to do so for a while, barring some major destabilizing event. Would 2 additional wars (simultaneously?) hurt the economy? Hard to say, really. But to fight 2 concurrent wars at our current state of depleted readiness, in addition to all the other little adventures we're committed to, would require a massive mobilisation, ramping up and ongoing support effort, which, if history is any indicator, would probably stimulate the economy considerably. I'm not arguing for more wars, mind you; I'm just not convinced it would hurt the economy if it happened.

The interest rates and housing market say otherwise. The economy isn't sprinting up hill, and rising commodity prices are going to start inflationary concerns. However, big historical mobilzations in the past have had pretty much every other major economy on war footing too. That wouldn't be the case in this situation.

However, big historical mobilzations in the past have had pretty much every other major economy on war footing too. That wouldn't be the case in this situation.Not sure it would matter. It might. Nor do we know what other countries might end up involved if we ended up fighting several wars at once. Something like that could rapidly turn into a "world war" situation and put many other economies into war mode.

"Once you get to Baghdad, it's not clear what you do

put in place of the one that's currently there now.
Is it going to be a Shia regime, a Sunni regime, a
Kurdish regime? Or one that tilts toward the Baathists,
or one that tilts toward Islamic fundamentalists?
How much credibility is that going to have if it's
set up by the American military there? How long
does the United States military have to stay there
to protect the people that sign on for that government,
and what happens once we leave?"

As Dick Cheney once said:

"Once you get to Baghdad, it's not clear what you do
with it. It's not clear what kind of government you
put in place of the one that's currently there now.
Is it going to be a Shia regime, a Sunni regime, a
Kurdish regime? Or one that tilts toward the Baathists,
or one that tilts toward Islamic fundamentalists?
How much credibility is that going to have if it's
set up by the American military there? How long
does the United States military have to stay there
to protect the people that sign on for that government,
and what happens once we leave?"

That's the thing, how do you do that. You would need to know where you are, easy enough, then know the range to the location, range finder could do that. But you would also need to know the direction, compass could do that. But would that information be precise enough for a precision attack?

The target was serviced by a flight of two F-16s. They employed underwing targeting pods. Those pods are linked to the jets' weapon delivery system kinda like this. The pilot puts the cursor on the target viewed on a screen of the surface image in the cockpit relayed from the pods sensor (LLTV, FLIR, etc.) That cursor slaves a laser designator from the pod which illuminates the target. Then, at weapons release, the bomb's guidance cap flies the bomb to the laser spot on the target. Result: high accuracy, and no need for guys on the ground to illuminate the target.

Question: If W knew, knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, had piles of intel that said there is a direct correlation between AQ/OBL and Saddam Hussein, why wasn't that the primary focus of his pre-invasion push to garner the support of the American public?

The problem with you question is that its revisionist history, or simply more cluelessness. The administration gave numerous reasons as to why we had to go to Iraq, and Saddams support for terrorism and AQ linked groups was one of the reasons from the very beginning. All one has to do is actually read the bill congress voted on authorizing the war. The WMD argument was the most pivotal for the obvious reasons. And never mind that Bush's Whitehouse has had the worst PR/spin machine since the Carter years.



Al Qaeda, Iraq partners in terror -- Powell
Wednesday, February 5, 2003

UNITED NATIONS (CNN) -- The regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein for years has consorted with the al Qaeda terrorist network, often using as a go-between a shadowy figure who set up a training camp in northeast Iraq, Secretary of State Colin Powell said Wednesday.

Speaking to the U.N. Security Council, Powell offered the most detailed explanation yet of possible links between Baghdad and associates of Osama bin Laden. At its center, he said, is Abu Mussab Zarqawi, a bin Laden associate who has traveled in Iraq.

According to the news now we know...

Predator drone was targeting the religious person and had him all the time. Followed him to the reinforced safe house (did you see all the rebar and steel reinforcement?) and orbitted until Special Ops showed up.

Special Ops had the house surrounded the first bomb was laser guided. Special Ops could have been painting the house or since they new the exact house, perhaps the A/C was targeting it. The second bomb was satellite guided. Special Ops was apparently close enough to get a GPS reading and send it up to the F-16s.

The word is that this was developed from DETAINEE information and from a person close to AZ who ratted him out. So anyone complaining about the U.S. detaining people can shove it...

Berg offers up an insightful, if very extreme point. His tone is more towards complete pacifism than it is anything else.


I was awakened at 4:30 AM with the news of Zarqawi's death. I have said to over a dozen reporters so far today, that every human death diminishes me. I have said that Zarqawi's death is a triumph for revenge, for revenge is what killed Nick. I have said that Zarqawi's death will inflame the Iraqi resistance and perpetuate the endless cycle of revenge begetting revenge begetting revenge. I have said that the cycle must end, and that it ends with me. I take no joy in Zarqawi's death.

We caputre the #1 Wanted Terrorist in the world and the libbys are still up in arms



1.danger to us troops....
The idea that risking troops to do things ethically, not killing / risking innocents by 1000 pound bombs, overlooks the risk to our troops from the victims of our war attrocities.

2.Zarqawi won't be taken alive, not cooperating...
That's why more sophisticated tactics, tools not common in the militarists arsenol, like waiting for more opportune time, or not going for THE TROPHY FIGURE HEAD, like a juvenile hunter, until conditions optimal. FOLLOW THE GUY, it will pay off in the long run.

3. chance he'd get away completely.
Now turns out that GI's are accused of stomping his chest/stomach after removing him, alive, from an ambulance, accused by an Iraqi policeman witness. Autopsy not released. This means, in military mindset, he was a target, not a suspect, for kill on sight. THis is why the Iraqis, like any other victims of U.S. military attrocity, fight so long and so dedicated.

Why can't the obvious be stated, the U.S. is a war crimes country of the first order.
100,000 is a low estimate of civilian victims of U.S. "war to liberate"?




So we took the number 1 person who KNEW and we killed him.

If gathering intelligence by torment, torture, and inhumanity was so important...
If breaking long standing rules and treaties to get intelligence was so important...
If spending a fortune to fly prisoners around for the purpose of gaining intelligence by cruelty was so important ...
If contracting with countries like Poland to imprison humans to gain intelligence was so important ...

Then why did we kill the main person who was declared the number one source of intelligence?

Why is that?

How many dollars have been spent on gathering intelligence about insurgents and the 'military' in our war on terror?

How many lives have been lost in gathering intelligence in our war on terror?

How many limbs have been lost and families severely affected in gathering intelligence.

How many contracts have been signed with Halliburton, KBR, and Blackwater to carry out the war on terror with intelligence being a major part and how many dollars have we lost due to overpricing, losing funds, payolas?

WHY DID WE NOT TAKE OUR NUMBER ONE SOURCE OF INTELLIGENCE ALIVE?

Not taking him alive was another insult to the citizens of this country.

The true criminals in their war on terror are in the White House, the Pentagon, Congress and their entire support system.

A phony war plus phony propaganda equals massive deception, theft, loss of life.

All for profit by a few.

Slays me when the press was asking questions like, was he shot, did the military think about taking him alive to try rather than kill him, will there be an autopsy?

These guys are STUPID!

This guys blows up their colleagues and they are worried about trying him. Too bad he survived at all, wish the bomb would have blowed him to pieces. But given how well reinforced that house was (who the hell reinforces like that unless they were hiding something) I'm not surprised there was a survivor or two...

I hope he was alive and he knew just exactly who and what got him before he entered the gates of hell.

you realize that another reason they may have asked that question is that I assume he contained a lot of information that may have been helpful in future operations.....it doesn't mean those questions were asked because they were concerned with a trial.

I assume he contained a lot of information that may have been helpful in future operations...yeah, but extracting that information would've involved doing things that would've sent the MSM right over the edge.

yeah, but extracting that information would've involved doing things that would've sent the MSM right over the edge.it is a pretty safe assumption that Zarqawi would not have allowed the Coalition Forces to take him alive...as is evident by the fact that he even tried to roll off of the stretcher as they were taking him to get aid.

depending on the situation, he may not have had any choice. had he been too wounded to kill himself, yet still able to be saved, he might've been a heck of an asset, provided we could've gotten him off to some double secret probationary torture facility before anyone noticed.
