Always Listen to Your Better Half

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi should have listened to one of his wives (not sure which one) when she talked:

The wife of slain al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said she feared for her husband's life and warned him to leave Iraq, but that he refused to 'betray' his religion, according to a statement posted on the Internet Thursday.

The woman _ who identified herself only as 'Um Mohammed,' which means 'mother of Mohammed' _ said she advised al-Zarqawi to leave Iraq temporarily and give orders to his deputies from outside the country. The insurgent leader died June 7 in a U.S. airstrike outside Baqouba, northeast of Baghdad.

Al-Zarqawi 'gave me an angry look and said, `Me, me? I can't betray my religion and get out of Iraq,'' his wife said.

'In the name of God, I will not leave Iraq until victory or martyrdom,' she quoted al-Zarqawi as saying.

Perhaps if he had given his wife the benefit of the doubt he'd not had a couple of 500-pounders dropped on his head. Liquidation was the only cure for that ill and it wouldn't have happened if he listened to wife number two...or is it three?

Well, thanks for not "betraying your religion" and allowing the US to arrange that meeting with Satan as soon as we possibly could.
