    Maybe we'll see a Moqtada al Sadr comeback?

    Al Sadr is very different than Al Zarqawi. Al Sadr is not a terrorist and he is certainly not affiliated with al Qaida - he is looking out for his community. He does oppose the US occupation, but in the beginning of the occupation, the US had a chance to work with al Sadr, and refused to do so.

    The news is now saying it's doubtful that they got Zargawi.

    This is why we cannot win this through force. As long as there are others willing to fill the vacancies. As long as we continue our Imperialistic foreign policy there will always be others willing to fight.

    You cannot win their hearts and minds by killing their families.

    Wow, that's pretty young for someone with his kind of power and following !! I'd thought he was at least in his 40s. Guess not.

    Umm...sorry for the digression. Back to Zarqawi.
