As I said on Facebook, finally the roach is dead.

Counter-attack? Probably. More in danger? Not as much as before, I think.

Although Osama was a very powerful man in Al Qaeda, there are others in that group just as eager and capable to take his place. Not to mention, Al Qaeda isn't the only terrorist group out there. It's often mentioned (and sometimes incorrectly credited for some attacks) in news and papers, but it's not the only one and definitely not the only actively dangerous one.

This event is a huge double-edged sword. While Osama is finally dead, and a lot of dead souls are being laid to rest with his passing, this can and probably will cause a lot of problems for the US and its allies in this War on Terror--by slaying Osama, we've just made him into a martyr, and chances are they're going to step up on their attacks on us and our allies.

In that sense, it'd be better if Osama had died of natural causes, but then, we wouldn't even know if he died or not.

You posted this about 10 minutes after the end of President Obama's speech, I think you're up-to-date well enough!

This is a page being turned, much later than most expected, but I'm glad that we've got a solid closure. I don't think that having 10 or 20 more years of "here's a new recording from Osama" would've been useful for any of us, except for a few strategists perhaps. This obviously won't put any stop to international terrorism, but it at least shows that consequences will follow acts, even if it takes time.

After all this, I can only say: good riddance.

Wow Teej, and I thought I was a nerd.

Good riddance indeed. This certainly doesn't mean the end of terrorism. I doubt that Bin Laden's followers will cease his work, nor renounce their attacks, however, this certainly puts a dent in Al-Qaeda's forces. Little by little, this war will be won.

I hate to sound like a pessimist.
But even with Osama bin Laden dead, I'm sure there are a lot of terrorists who'd more than love to sit at his desk and say, "now I'm in charge!". I'm sure he's the most ( or shall I say, "one of" ? ) powerful guy in Al Qaida. We did set a milestone with our anti-terror campaign and showed them we're boss. But that's not going to easily deter further terrorist attacks. Just don't use Osama's death as an excuse to feel safe. Nothing's over yet. Let's just be careful and see what happens in the near future.

I laughed at the "Hide & Seek" gag, he did take the focus away from Carmen Sandiego after all!

But, Teej, I spent the last 24 hours thinking about that Street Fighter clip and... I don't get it.

Doc... It's victory music. I got that as soon as I heard it...

Still, I agree with the first posts.

I get the feeling that Osama was just a figurehead, and not really planing anything anymore. Although, who knows?

I'm not really comfortable celebrating the death of anyone, even Bin Laden. I can't rightly put my finger on why, exactly. But it just doesn't seem appropriate or consistent with my moral code.

I don't even feel the urge to celebrate. I'm just tired. Tired of all this death, and all this killing. Not to say that the US didn't do what needed to be done or anything, but I'm just tired of it all.

Some would say that the celebrating is not over his death, but the lives saved that he would have taken if he lived...

Perhaps. I'm not trying to pass judgement or anything, only explain why I just don't feel anything joyful in this. Was this necessary? I think so. But that's all it was.

I'm one of those thinkers that finds all life innately valuable. The end--specifically, the taking of life is something I can't ever celebrate even if I understand that it was the only realistic option.

It was necessary. That's all.

I'm with Mega X. I'm not about to rejoice in the death of anyone, whatever they've done and how much I loath everything they are and what they stand for.

Also his death won't mean any difference as far as The West is concerned. As much as Bush may have done to attempt to vilify this man terrorism is bigger than him and will outlive Al-Qaeda itself.
