Zarqawi today, who's next?

Terror leader al-Zarqawi dead, Iraqi officials say. That is what CNN is saying very early this morning.

al-Zarqawi, was suspected of being the masked man who beheads U.S. hostage Nicholas Berg, as he lets out piercing screams.' on a video that his group posted on his website.

"For the mothers and wives of American soldiers, we tell you that we offered the U.S. administration to exchange this hostage for some of the detainees in Abu Ghraib (prison), and they refused," the voice said. "Coffins will be arriving to you one after the other, slaughtered just like this."

How does the CIA feel about him now that he is dead? Afterall, they were the ones who recruited him to fight in the Soviet-Afghan war.

There will be jubilating. Zarqawi is dead! We are winning (or have won) the war on terror! Ain't it grand? There's no denying he was a bad, bad man, perhaps even evil. So is Saddam Hussein. The President will call this a watershed day, we are staying the course to victory- see, I told ya so, he'll say as he smirks into the camera! Not so fast, cowboy, there will always be bad guys. Who's next? Will it be the punk, Moqtada al Sadr, or Al-Masri?

Meanwhile, more than 20000 US soldiers are dead or wounded, as are probably more than 100,000 Iraqi citizens. And where in the world is Osama bin Laden?
