It may have been significant, but it doesn't change the fact that al Qaeda was 
never in Iraq in the first place.  We're kind of back to where we started, 
minus some.  I hear al Qaeda now is pushing for a war between the U.S. and Iran 
(plain old CNN).
  Just want to mention that when I said to Omar that he has no right to 
complain about extensive gun ownership in the U.S. because the other side is 
doing the same thing without guns, it was a statement of inclusion.  I even 
said birds of a feather.  Before we can change anything we have to accept that 
the only thing that changes is the excuse and the means, never the underlying 
reason.  In other words, the human race is all the same, nobody's right, 
everybody's wrong.  Well, almost everybody, but I'll live without your approval 
so feel free not to give any.

Post-al-Zarqawi Raids Kill 104 Insurgents

Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- American and Iraqi forces have carried 
out 452 raids since last week's killing of terrorist leader 
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and 104 insurgents were killed during 
those actions, the U.S. military said Thursday.

Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, a U.S. military spokesman in 
Baghdad, said the raids were carried out nationwide and led 
to the discovery of 28 significant arms caches.

He said 255 of the raids were joint operations, while 143 
were carried out by Iraqi forces alone. The raids also 
resulted in the captures of 759 "anti-Iraqi elements."


Iraq's national security adviser, Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, said 
the killing of Zarqawi marked the "beginning of the end" of 
al-Qaeda in Iraq.

He said documents seized after the raid that killed Zarqawi 
had given coalition forces "the upper hand".
