Great news! Looks like our long national nightmare is over. With the death of Sunni Muslim insurgency leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was responsible for thousands of deaths in Iraq, the second Gulf War is finally finished!
We were just toying with you, Abu. Objective complete.
I am simply elated that we finally destroyed the man who started the whole Iraq war. If if wasn't for al-Zarqawi and his terrorist dealings, we would never be in this mess! Remember when we called those summit talks, and al-Zarqawi jumped up from his chair, and banged his shoe against the table, and cried "we will bury you"? That was crazy. But thankfully, with his passing, all of that hatred and violence between Sunnis and Shiites and Kurds and Americans is behind us. The bombings against Iraq's fledgling security force will end, and the Iraqi government will be able to form itself in peace. We will be able to refocus on our central mission over there, which just happens to escape me at the moment. But it will come to me. I'm just overwhelmed right now. What a rush!
