The BBC is reporting that Zarqawi, the leader of Al–Qaeda in Iraq has been killed. It's nice to see some good news coming out of Iraq for a change. As well as that they managed to get the remaining government positions filled – all in all a pretty good day. An informer reported the location and the Americans dropped two 500lb bombs on the location. The news got even better because they also killed other people at the top of his group of killers. Lets hope this represents a real turning point.
The US and UK were playing the strike down, though, but this is largely because they know that bombings will continue; but we can hope that without their head a power vacuum will cause internal power struggles and then they can kill themselves.
