Some of the Iraqi people are celebrating.
i totally agree with you. i think the world's people should feel just a little bit safer with the awaited death of that person.
Are you sure they're celebrating? If they're just firing AK-47s in the air and yelling, they might be defending themselves from air attack rather than partying - the two are apparently very similar.
Indeed-in a country where every male is pratically obliged to own atr least one Ak-47, it leads to such things.
I think theyre always yelling and shooting in the air, except during lunch hour.
Oh yay! That old one. It makes so much sense doesn't it? Giving us somemore insights from fantasy land are we? Your idea of killing all muslims is as ludicrous as your much fabled wisdom (mind you, there's cash money to be made making "enough bombs" I guess). Nevertheless, thanks for the "insight".
Thanks for the answers gents. I feel one of you is telling it like it is. The other is squirming and telling a half story. Thanks to both of you all the same.
Just know that all the celebrating is totally empty and meaningless, as so many other posts have made out. The killing will go on, you will continue thinking you're the bee's knees and new monsters will step forward in his place. What a wonderful war on terror this is, working out just great isn't it?
Anyway, office time is over in these parts and I'm out the door. So you guys are free to regurgitate the soundbytes and high five all you want, without this killjoy getting in your way.
WTF are you talking about?
I meant to say that killing one guy does not make much of a difference when there are millions to take his place.
You really need to back off for a while since you are coming across a bit bird-brained.
And in other news....the price of oil falls upon the announcement of al-Zarqawi's death: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060608/ap_on_bi_ge/oil_prices_52
"Killing all muslims? No! Only the baaad ones!"
Doesnt matter. The trend is upwards. Whats driving the price is more than just terrorism.
Correlation does not equal causation
IMO, on top of that upward long term trend there is another short term trend superimposed. The global economy is slowing down. So demand is shrinking (or rather increasing at a slower pace). So that is also contributing to the price decrease.
That is not to say that Zarqawi death did not have any immediate effect on the oil market sentiment for the immediate term (which it may very well have).
The US has advertised this one guy as being a modern day Moriarty and then killed him in order that the sheep will believe that progress is being made.
It looks like a more ruthless man has given his location to the US in order to take control of 'Al Quaeda in Iraq'.
"First off I just want to say that Islam is a religion of peace, and we are not at war with the Muslim world. I dont believe in civilizational war.
We begin bombing in 5 minutes."
This is good news nonetheless even though it wont stop the insurgency.
The only way we are going to win this war is through reeducating the masses.
Now we just have to watch for the potential guy who would be coming in al-Zarqawi's place.
If we keep that off-balance, it would be hard to manage the terror group in Iraq efficiently .
But again, I think it's well understood that this won't stop the insurgency. Good news, nonetheless!
I just love this species called 'Human'....!
I think its going to be see-sawing up and down, due to a variety of factors, but the overall direction will continue to be inexorably up. Just a few months ago it would have seemed insane to be relieved its at $69 a barrel. Six months from now no doubt, people will breathe a sigh of relief when it falls to $75, or thereabouts.
As somebody once said: "Monkeez izt zee craziezt peeplez!"
It's obviously a good thing when you kill the man you built up in the first place. It's about the only good way something like that can end...
I think, in fact, it willl strengthen it.
