Another Dead Terrorist: So What?

Cynthia Farahat on Facebook, 8/1/22:

The head of Al-Qaeda Ayman Al-Zawahiri was killed by a U.S. drone strike today. While the world is a better place that this savage is gone, he will be replaced by a worse terrorist.

This reminds me of the drone strike which killed Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour in 2016, who was for working with the Afghan government, and was subsequently replaced with a much worse monster, Hibatullah Akhundzada.

While Al-Zawahiri’s killing is good news, unless there is a broad plan to eradicate Al-Qaeda (which there isn’t) this is basically a regime change with a worse terrorist who will lead Al-Qaeda on a path more similar to Islamic State and Jama’at Al-Tawhid wal-Jihad.
