    My thoughts exactly, its been to long for them to just conveniently find him. We might have him, but what happens now? I hope this doesnt start a chain of serious events.

    Months ago, his 2nd and 3rd were killed in the mountains of Pakistan where bin Laden was suppose to have been, BUT I suspect that while cutting off the head of the snake usually kills the snake, there are factions around the world that could possibly be grooming someone to step up or the hardliner clerics could be doing the same.

    The chain of events has been going on since before you were born. This is just the latest event. It won't end here.

    First thing I thought after Osama was dead was "OH SHIT! PISSED OFF TERRORISTS ARE GOING TO TRY TO BLOW UP THE PLANE WHEN I'M IN IT THIS WEEK!"

    So, if you don't hear from me next week, now you know why. icon_cry.gif

    I'm worried about retribution from whom ever is in charge of Al Qaeda now as well. I'm sure Osama Bin Laden knew that he would eventually be captured or killed, and he probably had some sort of backup plan lined up in the event of his demise. This could get really serious, really fast. Of course if, God forbid, that should happen, I have little doubt that the same lefty loons here wanting to give Obama ALL the credit will somehow figure out how to give Bush ALL the credit for that.

    We'll find out shortly if any of this is true.

    History shows that there will be retribution, I'm almost certain..the only questions are when, where and how? I just pray that we dont let our guards down from this false sense of security...

    Clearly he had back plan. Just because he has one does not mean it's going to work. If we live our lives in fear of what someone might do if we hit back, that means they win...that why they are called terrorist. It's unfortunate that he's dead, but this is justice for the families that lost someone on 9/11.

    What history shows us is that it will be 'business as usual' for AQ & Co. They have been practising 'retribution' for the past ten years (and before that). Should AQ perpetrate another terrorist attack, post bin Laden, that does not mean they were not going to do it anyway. It cannot have escaped your notice that, since 9/11, there have been numerous AQ attacks, some successful, some not. The only difference between then and now is that their symbolic figurehead is now sleeping with the fishes and we in the West have got our intelligence and security act together. At the very least, bin Laden's demise has got to have pissed on their morale somewhat and raised the spirits of most right-thinking people.

    Read Jesse Ventura's latest book,
    63 Documents Your Government Doesn't Want You to Read
    and then tell me that OBL is our worst enemy.

    http://www.amazon.com/Documents-Government-Doesnt-Want-Read/dp/1616082267

    Great book. No hyperbole or distortions as Limbaugh tells his brainwashed conservative followers...but actual classified documents that Ventura got released. The book has the released documents word for word. No conservative will never talk about any of these documents...too busy stirring up hate against immigrants, teachers and gays for all the nation's problems.

    "lefty loons"? thats an interesting take in defense of the side that failed to heed " osama bin laden determined to attack u.s. with civilian airliners " national security briefing of august 2001, then went on to attack 2 countries, one of which had no connection to 9/11, nor wmds, and instead of getting bin laden in tora bora, frittered away thousands of american lives and tens of thousands of maimed, including 10's of thousands of women and children killed and maimed in countries, later labeled " collateral damage". and lets not forget, the self-righteous right got near record low taxes while these un-funded wars were and are still going on. on top of the loss of life, lets remember, the deficit ballooned when the non-lefty loons were in control, by some $5 trillion.

    madness yes...

    Thats just sick. The world celebrated the Royal wedding was a joyous day., But.......... the world is not celebrating the death of another human being, no matter how evil he was, because thats just disturbing, and no less disturbing when people celebrate 9/11. War is not to be celebrated, and anyone who does is no better than the other side.

    We'll be on ultra high alert. Also Osama's son warned a while back that when we get his father it would get worse, as the assistants were much nastier. If you believe that kind of probable hype. With #2 and #3 already gone, who knows who will come next; also it might not make a difference. Different branches in various countries kind of do their own thing. Also the organization is many times the size it was ten years ago when we first started hunting Osama, and in many more countries. Back then it was only Afghanistan!

    Amen to that!!! I whole-heartedly concur.

    What a garbled mess of false equivalences.

    Celebrating the mass murder of 3,000 people is not the same as celebrating the death of the man behind those murders.
    Not to mention that the murderer was killed in a shoot-out with forces that otherwise would have arrested him.

    It is gruesome to celebrate a death, but I think what is really being celebrated is the hope that this will help bring about the end of the war.

    I'd say the terrorist won the moment the TSA and Dept. of Homeland Security were brought online.

    Once upon a time, I could walk up to the gate and greet arriving loved ones, or say my goodbyes to them at the gate - all without having to by a ticketing have a security clearance, or enduring invasive searches of my person or my footwear or having my toiletries overly scrutinized.

    The terrorists won, and the airlines and travellers lost, because in most cases I'll choose to stay home or drive instead of flying.

    I doubt we will ever see the airport security theather go away either.
