Al Qaeda in Iraq chooses Zarqawi successor

The following story from Reuters is exactly why I have been frustrated the last few days about the multiple celebratory posts regarding Musab al-Zarqawi's death. It's like stomping on one damn roach and bragging about it. Just more muscle flexing and posturing by Bush to try to regain political favor. There are plenty of Al Qaeda ready to fill his spot. "Major blow against al Qaeda" my ass.
