RE: BREAKING NEWS: BIN LADEN IS DEAD!
I usually feel that no matter the circumstance, the loss of a life is never something to rejoice about, but I can't help but feel good about this death. I'm not so idealistic to believe this is the end of al-Qaeda, but I do feel like it's a good start. I find it more sad that a human life became so twisted and bitter then the actual death of the human life.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

This is a symbolic victory, it is a great occasion, but it won't change much. Al Quaeda is already fragmented into many groups, they'll thrive just as well under their other leaders. Don't want to be a bummer Tongue I'm glad he's finally out of the way for sure.

Merged two threads, don't mind the double posts.

I agree with Ashley, this isn't going to be the end of Al Quaeda especially since they have other leaders and fragments in other countries. Good on the Americans for getting this done though, I'm glad he's officially out of the picture. But of course another man will try to fill his shoes.

As much as he's hated for what he's responsible for in the loss of countless lives around the world, Bin Laden is still some mother's son. She grieves his loss, as does his father and every member of his family who knew the baby boy, the child, the young man and later the adult who was one of the worlds most wanted terrorists.
All those stages of life he grew into, only to go out being this creature he chose to be.

The thing that concerns me is the Martyrdom. The U.S. has his body in it's custody now and that he's been killed by our special forces makes it all so very public, in a world where cells can very easily be ensconced in the U.S. and our allied nations, waiting for news of this day so as to unleash hell. It's a formidable enemy, one that has nothing to lose. And in the case of radical terrorist Muslims,in the killing or the dying they are rewarded in their idea of Heaven. That makes for a treacherous enemy.
One thing is almost certain. Obama just about guaranteed his re-election in 2012, with this victory.

Though it does make me wonder, given Bin Laden was said to need dialysis on a regular basis, how is it he hid and survived in such personal medical conditions? Who knows? It's the government after all. He could have been dead for years, what with the only communications afforded him after 9-11 was video's and audio tapes. Who could have been anyone, taking his place.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was on purpose to try to put the "Obama is a muslim" idea in people's heads subconsciously... And then I wonder if Fox news is an evil propaganda machine carefully calculating its misinformation to spread its ideal to the American masses or just a mountain of morons who are so incompetent that they can't find basic spelling errors.
