It turns out the Iraq War was justified after all...

... because Ayman Zawahiri is encouraging insurgent attacks there. What more evidence do you need? Al Qaeda likes the fact that terrorists in Iraq are killing Americnas, that means that we did the right thing when we went into Iraq to overthrow Saddam. End of story. Tell 'em, George:

President Bush, speaking in Crawford, Tex., said that the comments "make it clear Iraq is a part of this war on terror, and we're at war. He's saying, you know, leave. . . . People like Zawahiri have a ideology that is dark, dim, backwards. He's threatening. They have come up against a nation that will defend itself."

Oh, it's clear Dubya. Crystal clear. Iraq is only a part of the war on terror now because we invaded and apparently don't have plans of leaving anytime soon. Al Qaeda is simply using the Iraq invasion against us and it seems like its helping them get new recruits. Now our president is trying to use the fact that al Qeada is growing in strength and using the Iraq War for its own benefit as evidence that there was an Iraq-al Qaeda connection during Saddam's regime. Absolutely not. But it's good to know that we're still on the offensive in this war on terror, as Bush likes to say, because maybe one day we'll actually find and capture Zawahiri or maybe even Osama bin Laden. Maybe one day...

In the meantime we'll just have to settle for mounting American casualties in Iraq and a growing list of enemies across the globe.
