Zarqawi's death 'not changing much'
CNN's senior editor of Arab affairs, Octavia Nasr, discusses the potential state of affairs following the death of one of Al Qaeda's top men. Nasr claims that, while the death of Al-Zarqawi is "a blow to Al Qaeda" events following his death "could go either way." Middle Eastern media has expressed "more jubilation than sorrow." However, the tone of Islamic Websites is entirely different. One Web site has already claimed that it has "1,000 Al Zarqawi's ready to go." Others have immediately called for his replacement.
Nasr notes that, while western media focuses primarily on Al Qaeda, there are countless other insurgent groups in Iraq that can do just as much damage as Al Qaeda. In their case, Zarqawi's death will not be "a big deal."
