Death of al-Zarqawi

Al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian-born Sunni militant with a $25 million U.S. bounty on his head, was killed via an US airstrike yesterday.

He is a lucky man for how many people in this world have the chance to be so splendidly and expensively killed? While his supporters may hold him up as a martyr and lament his demise, his death is one which brought much joy to many around the world.

Do his supporters ever wonder if Al-Zarqawi's directions were grossly wrong? When a person's death is greeted with such joy and relief around the world, has he lived his life in vain?
