Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead: hand shandyists wank like mad.
It is good to see that the Hand Shandyists For War are back to giving themselves some more frantic wrist actions: laughs like this are few and far between and have been for most of this year. The latest bit of wankery concerns the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian born leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
It looks as if he was grassed up by the Iraqi nationalists, after having served his purposes for them. This will not stop the Americans - and their stooges linked to above - from claiming this as some kind of historic turning point in the war.
However, as Justin Raimundo points out, the Americans could probably have had al-Zarqawi a couple of years ago, had they been willing to cut a deal with Iran. They didn't because the Americans needed him as a convenient myth; a myth which stated that he and the other foreign fighters were the be all and end all of the resistence.
Now that the Iraqis no longer need him, and now that the Americans are gagging for anything that can be spun as good news, the two sides seem to have come together to remove this bothersome irritant.
Our wanking friends will not doubt continue to spurt all over their monitors at the news, but back in the real world, the war will go on, the chaos will mount and the Americans will continue to die.
The rest is just a load of old tosh thrown out to give the stooges something to wank over.
