Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    On the death of al-Zarqawi

    I am never happy to hear of the death of any person, whether it's someone like al-Zarqawi or the morbid fantasies that many liberals have about seeing Bush and Cheney's head on a platter. When Ronald Reagan died and we remembered his victims at his funeral, I refused to hold up my signs when Reagan passed by. I was not happy that he had died; I was very unhappy for those whom he had killed.

    Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was no friend to resistance. He was a murderer, an authoritarian, a person whose only credentials seems to be the number of dead Iraqis he had notched on his belt. He, as far as I am concerned, was in league with Bush to create the new killing fields, which are Iraq. Sometimes the worst of enemies make for the best of friends when the real victims are the people of Iraq, who to this day lack any kind of self-determination for their lives.

    The death of al-Zarqawi is no loss to resistance, but it is also no victory for the United States in its gruesome war in Iraq. It is merely another sad chapter with one more death.

    I plan to use some time today to remember the victims of the war in Iraq, especially those who have no say in the matter, those who are struggling against all the oppressors.
