I am not one to sit and talk politics, but I want to know how you all feel since the US forces in Iraq have eliminated the #1 threat in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. What are your thoughts about the forces showing the picture of him after his death?

A report that I just read said that he lived 52 minutes after the second bomb was dropped, which completely blows me away. A pair of 500 lbs. bombs, and he lives? Just mind blowing stuff.

They also report that they found women's lingerie in the rubble, which makes me scratch my head.

Personally, I have no problems with showing the picture of the body. The US skepticism is at an all-time high, while the President's approval rating is at an all-time low. This gives the US and forces abroad the belief that we got him, and to add more credibility to that claim, the FBI says that a comparative test was done to positively ID al-Zarqawi.

What are your thoughts about this?

I loved that. The SF troops got to him and tried to administer aid. I would havee loved to have been one of those guys. I would have looked him in the eye and let him know who it was that took him out.

No disrespect to the Iraqi people, but I would have done the same thing. I would have shown him a giant Eagle in red, white, and blue............just to see what he would have done. Then again, I am a mean little dude. ;D

To all the soliders, JOB WELL DONE!

My favorite quote of the year so far is" not all muslims are terrorist but all terrorist are muslims" I personally feel if there ever was a time and a place for racial profiling this is it. Stop shaking down grandma in the airports and start targeting the people that need to be targeted.

I agree with you imonembad 99%.  The only thing is.......they are using the elderly and young children as a way to kill.  Ironic isn't it.

Also Terry Nichols which is McVeigh's partner.

I think that imonembad was just saying that most terriost are muslims. I know he said all but I don't think he was considering demostic terrorism, just foriegn terrorism.

Actually he was quoting something someone else said.

I just don't want us [American citizens] to run around with blinders on thinking the only terrorists are Muslims, because well, it's just not the case.

Another case . . . John Lee Malvo. His sniper attacks that killed so many a few years could also be classified as terrorism.

Absolutely b*girl. There are so many types of terrorists. We are never safe from foreign or domestic terrorist and that in itself is scary.
