First Comment on Zarqawi's Death

From the DailyKos, the first comment on the announcement of Zarqawi's death:

Bush's idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?

Yup, mine too.

Read on to enjoy the nutroots, Allah's new descriptor, denigrating the good work of US Special Forces.


Death from above, or point-blank

This is the one monster who deserved to die.

While I may agree with you that "This is the one monster who deserved to die." This method violates everything my America stands for. It violates the rule of law and invokes the rule of force in what should be a criminal, not a military, matter. To give Al-Queda status by declaring that this is a war, rather than arrest and prosecution for crimes committed, the Bush Administration has given Al-Queda much more status than they deserve. [Emphasis added.]

Next comment,

I've said that forever

Our biggest mistake was declaring "war" on Bin Laden, and thus elevating this fucking loser creep and his freaky organization to the status of a 'nation.' Did we declare 'war' on David Koresh?

We should have focused on Bin Laden with laser-like law-enforcement capabilities and taken the bastard out. We shouldn't have turned his brutal and evil attack into the whole fiasco that is Bush's "war."

Some, and I mean very few, of the Kosiacs understand that Zarqawi and rest of the Islamists are fascists and murderers and that they deserve their fate. They don't seem to understand that fighting a foreign enemy requires our military and that it would overwhelm any law enforcement and judicial system to try and capture the jihadists.

Finally, from the same thread:

Let's review (US "journalists" please take notes):
Zarquwi renamed his organization "Al-Qaida in Iraq" in order to recruit more followers. He did this after George Bush invaded Iraq. Bush's Iraq War led to the creation of Al-Qaida in Iraq. Al-Qaida in Iraq had almost nothing to do with Bin Laden's group named Al-Qaida, and certainly had nothing to do with 9/11. Americans delude themselves when they equate the two.

This is what is meant when we say they have a law enforcement view for fighting terrorism. Meaningless legalism instead of recognizing that Zarqawi and Bin Laden are part of the same problem, radical Islam.

matto adds:
Reuters seems to be having a tough time coping with this outcome (via AJ Strata):
Michael Berg, whose son Nick was beheaded in Iraq in 2004, said on Thursday he felt no sense of relief at the killing of the al Qaeda leader in Iraq and blamed President Bush for his son’s death.

The killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi removes the man who took Iraq’s insurgency to new heights of savagery but it also creates a martyr whose inspiration will mobilise new recruits.
