I didn't jump for joy when I heard the news, but I was mildly happy about it. Considering that bin Ladin & his organization caused the deaths of over 3,000 innocent Americans, I don't blame anyone else for cheering. The fact is, his death will make little difference in combating terrorism overall. It's not like every hard-core jihadist will say, "Oh damn. Usama bin Ladin is gone. What's the point now? Guess I'll sell my explosives on Ebay & go get a job at Home Depot..."
With Osama Bin Laden being dead now I was wondering what others thought of the whole cheering of the death of Osama Bin Laden? For me, I'm glad Justice has not passed him by, but I don't feel that cheering is appropriate. In general I believe that no one should be gunned down, BUT there are realities that dictate that once a person or group is pushed to the brink an equal or greater response is the only appropriate solution. So, again what do you guys think?
