Abu Musab al Zarqawi was killed over the weekend by American bombs. A symbolic victory, perhaps, but the violence will still rage on. And how should we Christians respond to the long sought-after death of militant leaders? Though I am not interested in celebrating death, I do not mourn the loss of this man’s leadership in a blood-thirsty militant uprising. I’m glad he’s off the streets, so to speak, but that’s about it. I take no particular joy in his death.
And another question – why do they feel a need to put the picture of this dead man in a frame? Can’t they simply display the image with a digital projector, or print it on simple foam board? Perhaps W will hang this in his living room?
