At last, something good happens in Iraq

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the serial beheading, Islamofascist barbarian leader of the Iraqi franchise of al-Qaeda, has been killed in a US air strike. This is great news for the Iraqi people, their fledgling government and anyone who wants to see democracy take root in that region.

Also taken out in the attack were several of his closest aides, including his ‘spiritual advisor’. Oh, the irony. Clearly, Allah is great. Just not as great as an Exocet missile careering towards your safe house.

Whilst this will not in itself end the insurgency (remember the short lived euphoria when they dragged Saddam out of his stench pit?), it is undoubtedly a good thing to remove the figurehead of the ‘movement’ in this way. Doubtless there will be a queue of deranged fanatics forming an orderly queue to succeed this thug, but for the time being, they are certainly weakened.

So long then, Abu. I hope your 72 virgins are Ann Widdecombe look-alikes. Riddled with syphilis.

Update: I’m not sure how virgins would manage to contract syphilis in the first place, mind. And it wasn’t an Exocet missile that did the deed, either. But whatever. . .
