Finally, the GOOD NEWS: Al-Zarqawi "Running for Cover"

The Daily Telegraph reported that groups in one of Iraq's most violent provinces claim to have purged the region of three quarters of al-Qa'eda's supporters:

We have killed a number of the Arabs, including Saudis, Egyptians, Syrians, Kuwaitis and Jordanians," said an insurgent representative in the western province of Anbar.

The claims were partly supported by the defence ministry, which said it had evidence that Zarqawi and his followers were fleeing Anbar to cities and mountains near the Iranian border.

The group, the Anbar Revolutionaries, has a core membership of 100 people, all of whom had relatives killed by al-Qa'eda. Led by Ahmed Ftaikhan, a former Saddam-era military intelligence officer, it claims to have killed 20 foreign fighters and 33 Iraqi sympathisers. Many more are said to have fled. The United States has confirmed that six of Zarqawi's deputies were killed in Ramadi.

Cable News Network confirmed the Anbar Revolutionaries during a recent interview with Sheik Zeidan (exiled in Jordan), who acknowledges in the opinion piece that a new group called the Anbar Revenge Brigade has been targeting al Qaeda in Iraq (and Zarqawi) on behalf of the tribes. For personal reasons the sheik does not believe the group will prevail (if it does, of course, who would need him?).

Paradise awaits the villain Zarqawi. Should be interesting for him to meet his suicide bombers as one of their virgins.
