WorldNetDaily: Zarqawi killed in U.S. attack

It's true, sportsfans--proved by positive identification of his remains. See also here, here, and here.

And yet, and yet...I was waiting for the first addle-pated fool to dare suggest that al-Zarqawi's death was an unjust thing. To see Nicholas Berg's own father--a man who lost a son at this man's hands--say that community service in a hospital would have rehabilitated Zarqawi is to plumb the depths of what Greek speakers in the Roman Imperial era called moria--from which we get the English word moron today. What this man also is, is an idiot--a man living in a world of his own, accepting no reality beyond his own wishful thinking.

That aside: Zarqawi's dead, and Osama bin Laden is next. In the meantime, we can safely imagine that Zarqawi got his surprise introduction to the afterlife at the hands of seventy-two Virginians.

The only remaining question is that of the disposal of the remains. Technically, he is a subject of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and even tried to assassinate his king and kill thousands of the king's peaceful subjects with poison gas. Therefore, King Abdullah II might have a claim on him, if he cares to press it. Or perhaps the Iraqis themselves, seeing that he committed most of his crimes on what is now their territory.
