Does anyone else find it unseemly that we (the U.S.) are celebrating the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi?  Yes, this was a bad, bad guy.  He probably deserved to die in the same fashion that he lived his life.  But it makes me cringe to read the exultant headlines and to see us displaying pictures of him dead.  If you looked at this from the other side, and some important person from the U.S. was killed, we would be horrified at the bragging about his or her death and the displaying of postmortem pictures by insurgent Iraqis. 

We need not sink to the level of the terrorists.  As the great “Christian” nation, let’s try not to revel in someone’s death.
