Now that Osama Bin Laden is dead, I hope the tens of thousands of Muslims who died at his hands and the families of the 3,000 people lost in the Twin Towers find closure. After 10 long years of searching, we finally got the bastard who was hiding just 90 miles away from Islamabad, Pakistan.
It is now a certainty that President Obama will be re-elected to his second term in 2012 after taking credit for the killing. We will have more big government spending and higher taxes. That’s not so bad given the economy continues to recover and people are finding jobs again.
The main question you should think about is whether the killing of Osama Bin Laden by US special forces is a good thing, or a bad thing in the long run? Osama Bin Laden has been the leader of the Al-Qaeda Terrorist Network for over two decades, but how much power has he had over the past 10 years given his need for secrecy. Undoubtedly hundreds of new Osamas are looking to take a higher leadership role and avenge is death. Expect retaliation.
Unfortunately, the killing of Osama Bin Laden brings about a new wave of terror. We’ve closed one chapter, but many more chapters of terror are about to be written. Let’s be vigilant and aware. Here’s to peace, one less evil on Earth, and a thank you to our armed forces.
Readers, what are your thoughts on the killing of Osama Bin Laden? Do you feel safer as an American traveling the world now? Will there be retaliation and a never ending cycle of hatred and suffering? How do we know if Obama is really dead?
