If Ann Coulter can attack the Jersey Girls, I can offer some tentative criticism of the father of beheaded (by Zarqawi himself!) American Nicholas Berg. In an interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Mr. Berg said:
“Well, my reaction is I’m sorry whenever any human being dies. Zarqawi is a human being. He has a family who are reacting just as my family reacted when Nick was killed, and I feel bad for that.
“Because Zarqawi is also a political figure, and his death will re-ignite yet another wave of revenge, and revenge is something that I do not follow, that I do want ask for, that I do not wish for against anybody. And it can’t end the cycle. As long as people use violence to combat violence, we will always have violence.”
Mr. Berg could not be more wrong-killing Zarqawi, far from adding to the cycle of violence, actually stops some violence-short-circuits it, in a way. CNN also offers a video of Mr. Berg comparing President Bush to Zarqawi. (Oh, and let’s hope this fellow wasn’t impolitely interrogated!)
