New report from Michael Yon

He's at it again. Making sense all over the place.
it's doubtful that catching Zarqawi will have any real effect on the direction of this war. Despite the media's pronouncements about his critical leadership role, he's just a single sting in a clump of nettle. Pluck him out and another might replace him, but either way, the terror network here is so fragmented that few are likely to notice his absence. Yet when it comes to guarding these terminals, there probably is no greater mission in Iraq. Another terminal cannot just pop up and replace the loss.
I think there's still practical value in high profile captures of terrorists. But he's right. That would be for us here in the US. Not there in Iraq.
