Bombers continue to play Whack-a-Mole

From AP:
The U.S. military launched its third airstrike in a week Friday in Fallujah, using precision weapons to destroy a suspected safehouse for Abu Musab Zarqawi's terror network.
Probably the same sort of "precision" weapons that killed hundreds of people, none of them the intended targets, early in the war. Or the ones that ended a wedding party in western Iraq. Zarqawi is the convenient excuse now for the military to continue bombing the crap out of Fallujah. He's "foreign" (Jordanian), so they can continue to blame "foreign" insurgents, he has alleged links to Osama, so they can claim that this bloody state-sponsored terrorism is somehow fighting terrorism, and he's probably already dead, so they needn't worry about having to cut the bombing campaign short because they've inconveniently killed him.
