Iraqis Celebrate The Death Of Zarqawi – Photos

Our one party media has done such a good job convincing us of the popularity of the "Iraqi insurgency" that I have to admit to being a little surprised to see Iraqis celebrating the death of al-Zarqawi:

An Iraqi soldier flashes a victory sign as he celebrates the death of Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Kerbala, 110 km (70 miles) south of Baghdad June 8, 2006.

Iraqi soldiers hold up their weapons as they celebrate the death of Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Najaf, 160 km (100 miles) south of Baghdad, June 8, 2006.

Iraqi celebrate after hearing that Al-Qaeda militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in a joint US-Iraqi raid on the outskirts of the restive city of Baquba. US and Iraqi officials hailed Zarqawi's demise as a major blow against al-Qaeda's bid to destabilise the country.

Iraqi soldiers celebrate the news that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaida's leader in Iraq who led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and kidnappings, has been killed in an air raid north of Baghdad, in the Sadr City area of Baghdad, Iraq Thursday, June 8, 2006.

An Iraqi woman shares Iraqi soldiers joy following the death of al-Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi, killed in a US and Jordanian-led airstrike, orchestrated a string of bloody attacks and videoed beheadings in Iraq, but managed to evade capture for years.

 

Iraqi police officers and an elderly woman fire guns in the air to celebrate the news that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaida's leader in Iraq who led a bloody campaign of suicide bombings and kidnappings, has been killed in an air raid north of Baghdad, in the Sadr City area of Baghdad, Iraq Thursday, June 8, 2006. One of the police officers gave his pistol to the elderly woman, whom he knew, so that she could join in the celebrations by firing in the air with them.

Of course it makes all the sense in the world. But our media's propaganda is so effective.

And unrelenting:

This is a frame from TV which shows Iraqis holding up a [baby's] shoe and a soft toy, at the scene Thursday, June 8 2006, following a US air raid in which Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed.

They never stop.
