It's Been a Good Day

You know it's going to be a good one when you wake up to the news that a murdering, demonic thug has been sent to meet Allah via being on the receiving end of a U.S.-made-and-delivered 500-pound bomb:

Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi Killed in Air Raid

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most-wanted terrorist in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of beheadings and suicide bombings, was killed when U.S. warplanes dropped 500-pound bombs on his isolated safehouse, officials said Thursday. His death was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.

Al-Zarqawi and several aides, including spiritual adviser Sheik Abdul Rahman, were killed Wednesday evening in a remote area 30 miles from Baghdad in the volatile province of Diyala, just east of the provincial capital of Baqouba, officials said.

"Al-Zarqawi was eliminated," Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said.

It's more than a good day. It's a very good day. Good riddance.
