    Default Osama Bin Laden is Dead

    The butcher is no more, thanks, apparently, to the United States.

    RIP to his victims all around the world.

    I figured he had died many years ago already.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    It is .org custom to not speak disrespectfully of the dead until they are buried.

    It was a firefight, and not a Predator as was first speculated.

    I'm glad he saw it coming instead of having it drop through the ceiling, and I hope he was terrified.

    I never thought this day would come. I figured he'd die from his kidney problems before he was ever found.

    Rest in Piss.

    NBC gives additional details about firefight.

    "He was shot at least once in the head."

    Oh really?

    They just released a photo of the man who pulled the trigger.

    Although this is a good news I wonder what this could bring in the long run. Making him a martyr for the Muslim fanatics is not the best solution I think. Capturing him alive or letting him die naturally would have been better options.

    That was never an option for America or Americans.

    I think the message of today is that those who'd have Osama for a martyr now know Uncle Sam will get them, no matter how far and how long they run.

    The whole world had an enemy in Osama Bin Laden, and the whole world has one less enemy.

    I am grateful that he can harm no one else again, or lead the efforts of a group of mass murderers. I am thankful that the victims of this person finally had justice done on their behalf.

    I selfishly hope that we can experience the unity we all felt on 9/11 again, and I hope it lasts for a while this time. Would be very welcome.

No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a fire fight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.”

    Yes, I agree, it is better that he is dead. People that are alive have a bad habit of being alive, and people that are dead have a bad habit of being dead. And one need not worry about one that is already dead. Martyrdom? Sure....he can have. But it is worth it....and when those who are inspired by his martyrdom are dead as well, it wont really matter that much.

    That is a brilliant poster!

    Will this essentially secure the Presidency for Obama for the next election? This is *obviously* a huge boost to Obama's popularity... and will probably boost his approval rating in the same way Bush's did back in 2001.

    Oh, and Osama was killed/assassinated in Abottabad, not Islamabad, and Obama gave full kudos to Pakistan/ISI in his speech so there will, most likely and hopefully, be not political backlash in that arena... unless the media turns it into a big deal.

    I remember where I was and what I was doing the morning of September 11, 2001.

    And I'm going to remember May 1, 2011 for the rest of my life.

    Also - America **** Yeah. **** Yeah.

    Finally - have fun with your 9/11 buddies;

    JAHANNEM, OUTER DARKNESS—The hijackers who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon expressed confusion and surprise Monday to find themselves in the lowest plane of Na'ar, Islam's Hell.

    "I was promised I would spend eternity in Paradise, being fed honeyed cakes by 67 virgins in a tree-lined garden, if only I would fly the airplane into one of the Twin Towers," said Mohammed Atta, one of the hijackers of American Airlines Flight 11, between attempts to vomit up the wasps, hornets, and live coals infesting his stomach. "But instead, I am fed the boiling feces of traitors by malicious, laughing Ifrit. Is this to be my reward for destroying the enemies of my faith?"

    Philosophical question for everyone:

    Is it right to celebrate the death of a man who we hated because he celebrated death?

    It's always a morbid affair to celebrate death... but it is justified in this case by that he did not celebrate 'death', as such, but rather he celebrated the death of innocent purely for selfish, fanatical reasons.

    Basiclly, I believe he is a guilty, dangerous person who endangered peace with his warmongering and hatred and deserved nothing less then the most gruesome of deaths.

    It means less than nothing at this point

    I will wake up tommorow and we will still have spent more money and shed more innocent blood (on both sides)

    The death or marginilzation of Bin Laden was a fat accompli from the moment 9/11 happedend

    I wonder if this will give Obama enough political capitial to continue playing empire

    WHO WANTS GROUND TROOPS IN LYBIA

    Dont get me wrong I dont care if we cut the mans balls off and fed them to him but I don't see what we are celebrating.

    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.
