ust in case you missed the news, Al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, blamed for the beheading of foreign captives and the death of hundreds in suicide bombings, has been killed in a raid north of Baghdad, Iraq's prime minister said on Thursday.

"Today Zarqawi has been terminated," Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki announced at a televised news conference attended by the top U.S. commander in Iraq, General George Casey, and other senior officials. Casey said the body of Zarqawi, who had a $25 million U.S. bounty on his head, had been identified and that details of his death would be revealed later on Thursday.

There seems to be much celebrating going on in Iraq right now with the news spreading like wildfire. My advice is pretty simple right now... don't rest on your laurels because there's probably another al-Zarqawi out there ready to jump in and take his place. Personally, I think this war is far from over. I wish I was wrong but I'm not.

Observations and Questions
I just noticed that today is the anniversary of the death of Mohammed, founder of Islam. Sssshhh! Maybe they won't realize the co-incidence. Comments? Any thoughts?
