Zarqawi Survived Blast For 52 Minutes

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi lived for 52 minutes after a U.S. warplane bombed his hideout northeast of Baghdad, and he died of extensive internal injuries consistent with those caused by a bomb blast, the U.S. military said Monday.
One hopes that during those fifty-two minutes Zarqawi's Maker was giving him a perfect understanding of his actions, that Zarqawi realized he was experiencing a tiny portion of the suffering he so joyously handed out.
He added that no decision had been made on what to do with the remains of al-Zarqawi and his spiritual adviser, Sheik Abdul-Rahman, who also was killed instantly in Wednesday’s airstrike.
We welcome your suggestions.
