Zarqawi reportedly arrested

This is excellent news (via Got Design) if true (Drudge updates: White House questions labels sources as dubious), especially for a country expecting to hold an election in just a few weeks. With Zarqawi in prison, you hope it follows a decapitating-the-beast-and-it-dies situation instead of a hydra where in place of the one head cut off, three grow in its place.

I believe we will see a short term increase in violence, a kind of last dying gasp, before it starts to sputter out. That's my prediction (if this all pans out to be true of course).

The Wookie has spoken.
