Look, if ever there was someone who needed a good killing, it was Osama bin Laden. And when the news broke my gut reaction was, "Ooh yeah..." And I get the initial reaction, the want of celebration, but folks, at some point it crosses the line from being glad that justice was not denied into something...wrong.

If you're out in the streets firing a damned gun out of joy...yeah, there's a special kind of stupid. And so very wrong.

And if you're hell bent on turning it into political oneupmanship and engaging in propagation of conspiracy theories, refusing to just freaking believe for once...don't know why I even know you, to be honest.

It's not over. The whole damn thing isn't finished. We're no safer today than we were yesterday, before we knew. But hell yeah, give the President his and the military its due, be glad that there's one less dark spot on the planet today, and holster your damned gun before you kill someone who really doesn't need a good killing...

if you cut the head off a Hydra , it grows two more. Or the snake can still land a killing blow after it's head has been cut off.

You are so right! We are still at war and we will probably see some retaliation!

I agree. I can't be the least bit sorry he's no longer on the planet, but I do kinda dread the retaliation that someone is thinking up. But then, they were gonna do it anyway.
