The Thirty Pieces Of Silver Method Of Fighting Terrorism

The Times of London has an update on al-Zarqawi:

Al-Zarqawi betrayed for $25m

Precious few Iraqis will mourn his passing, however - he was widely hated, even among Iraqi Sunni insurgents opposed to the US occupation. The US had put a $25 million bounty on al-Zarqawi's head - which Mr al-Maliki later said would be honoured. "We will meet our promise," he said, without elaborating.

Wall Street's Gordon Gekko character had it right - greed works.

I guess we need to teach our children a different prayer now:

Greed is great
Greed is good
Greed destroyed
A bad-ass hood.

[The Fair Use Notice greedily occupies the flip side all by its selfish self]
