If you haven't read the blog Baghdad Burning yet, you really should. It is written by an Iraqi woman in Baghdad. I don't know much else about her besides that fact and that her writing consistently cuts through the media fog and speaks from the streets and the homes of occupation Iraq. She wrote this on Saturday about Zarkawi...

How do I feel? To hell with Zarqawi (or Zayrkawi as Bush calls him). He was an American creation- he came along with them- they don't need him anymore, apparently. His influence was greatly exaggerated but he was the justification for every single family they killed through military strikes and troops. It was WMD at first, then it was Saddam, then it was Zarqawi. Who will it be now? Who will be the new excuse for killing and detaining Iraqis? Or is it that an excuse is no longer needed- they have freedom to do what they want. The slaughter in Haditha months ago proved that. "They don't need him anymore," our elderly neighbor waved the news away like he was shooing flies, "They have fifty Zarqawis in government."
