I am glad to see hes dead but this doesnt really diminish anything that Al Queada can do. Osama was more of a figurehead then anything else lately.

The point is that we got the figurehead which will hopefully raise support for what the soldiers are doing and raise the morale of the soldiers themselves because they will feel like their effort is actually getting something done.

Re: Osama Bin Laden dead

I am very happy. This won't do much, honestly, in our progress (or perhaps it will, who knows?) in the battle against al-Qaeda, but this is a shakening blow to them and will definitely leave an impact and boost U.S. and allies morale.

Re: Osama Bin Laden dead

This is very excellent news, but Al Qaeda isn't going to take this lightly. As much as I don't want to, I think we might have another attack in the near future.

Re: Osama Bin Laden dead

We got home after being out of town for the weekend. I took a shower, got out, and walked into the living room. The TV was on, and I saw the headline "Osama Bin Laden Dead." I actually thought it was a lame joke or something.

I thought we'd never find him...

Re: Osama Bin Laden dead

Frankly I have almost no excietment over this news...I just don't get why it is exciting. Sure it's great we've found him, but I don't think it really accomplishes anything. Frankly I find it more than anything, a sad thing that our government can tell us we found one man we were trying to find for 10 years, and by finding him we accomplish nothing more than a bit of revenge.

Now if they tell me they've fixed a real problem, maybe I'll listen. As is...it's news sure. But I don't see the true excitement so many seem to have.

But ah well. You guys all cheer as you will, I'm glad many of you are excited. I wish I could share in the jubilation.
