Can We Dance in the Streets Too?

Remember the videos of crowds in the Middle East dancing and celebrating in the streets over the 9/11 attacks and the deaths of innocent Americans? Would it be unseemly for us to respond in kind and dance over the deaths of the guilty?

My Way News has the story: Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi Killed in Air Raid.

John Hawkins over at Right Wing News has a pic and a cute little dancing Snoopy which actually is starting to annoy a little because it is right in my line of vision when I have the comment section up and I just can't ignore it, but it is cute nonetheless.

Apparently some of the more liberal sites have commenters worried that this is unjust of the U.S. to take out terrorists, complaining that they will hate us more. Hullo? How can they hate us more than they already did? How much further down could they spiral than their already foaming-at-the-mouth, kill- passengers-and-fly-planes-into-buildings-killing-innocent-women-and-children hatred? What do we have to lose? When an enemy hates you and wants you to suffer and die, can it get worse?

Update: Hawkins has another post up with a collection of liberal laments over Zarqawi's death.

More still: There's lots of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over in the comment section of The Daily Kos. Some are upset that President Bush's ratings might go up. Others decry the injustice of taking Zarqawi out. Still others say we should have focused on taking out bin Laden (which would have been accomplished years ago had Clinton only stopped playing golf long enough to take the phone call and give his approval--so you had your chance, guys.) It's quite an education over there. Wow.
