It's Z Day!

"Zarqawi's death is a blow to al-Qaeda; it is a victory in the war on terror."
Thats what George W. Bush said this morning. I say God Bless the troops, good job well done!
From WAPO here:
Speaking from the Rose Garden several hours later, President Bush praised the U.S.-led military coaltion for continuing to pursue Zarqawi through "years of near-misses and false leads."

"Through his every action, he sought to defeat America and our coalition partners and turn Iraq into a safe haven from which al-Qaeda could wage its war," Bush said. " . . . Now Zarqawi has met his end, and this violent man will never murder again."

The Prime Minister al-Maliki said in a press conference about Zarqawi's demise:
"Today Zarqawi was defeated," said Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, appearing at a midday news conference with U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and Gen. George W. Casey, the top U.S. military commander in Iraq. "This is a message to all those who use violence killing and devastation to disrupt life in Iraq to rethink within themselves before it is too late," Maliki added.

Prime Minster Blair chimes in too:
British Prime Minister Tony Blair called Zarqawi's death "a strike against al-Qaeda in Iraq, and therefore a strike against al-Qaeda everywhere." He called Zarqawi the "most vicious prosecutor" of terrorism in Iraq.

I say AMEN! Now we have to finish the Hat Trick by getting Osama and his Egyptian Doctor.
