Meh. I have trouble celebrating anyone’s death, no matter how horrible they are.

As I said on my facebook (a friend in active duty was having issues with ppl “celebrating” his death) I am not happy that a death occured in the capture of him, but happy he is no longer around. I wish he were captured and had a trial, but to be honest they probably would have liked him captured alive also for information and better PR, but killing him was propbably the only way to take him out. Also if he had gone to trial I have no doubt he would have been executed anyway because he has no remorse over anything he had done.

So yes, I think he is dead. People will find doubt over everything if they totally dont understand

@iheartnerds: same here.

I’m happy for our troops, I’m happy he can no longer harm people… but I just can’t celebrate the death of a person… 

If anything, I’m a bit worried all our celebrations shown on the news combined with his killing is going to make the people he had in line in case of this event show us that they are not gone.

I was going to start a thread on whether or not it’s appropriate (or wise) to be celebrating Osama Bin Laden’s death by screaming and partying in the streets.  Of course, I’m as happy as any other person that America finally nailed him, but I wonder if celebrating so publicly won’t bring down some extra wrath from the jihadists.  I know how I felt when I saw them dragging a dead American soldier through the streets while they whooped and partied it up.  Just adds fuel to the fire.

Anyway, it had to be done and as they say in Texas, “He needed killing”.  Good for Obama too!

I get that people are happy that “the face” of 9/11 is dead but the fact of the matter is that this will have a negligible effect on the presence of Al Qaeda. It’s one man in a large organization that will continue to plot in his absence. Osama is but a face for a thriving organization and I’m more concerned with how you can ever stop Al Qaeda – for me, Bin Laden is sort of a secondary problem in the whole big picture. HE didn’t personally kill all those people, Al Qaeda did, and well, they’re still operating. It’s been 10 years since 9/11, my sentiment is more along the lines of “uh, it’s about time.”

I am relieved that they found him and killed him but scared on what will happen next? How mad Al Qaeda will be and what they will plan to attack us. They do horrible horrible things that aren’t even shown on our news (from what they were stating on every channel last night).

Also, whenever I hear Bin Laden is dead I start singing in my head the song from Wizard of Oz-the witch is dead. I have no idea why! lol

I was in NYC on September 11, 2011.

I saw everything happen from our conference room on 39th and 9th Avenue. I had to walk across the 59th Street bridge in fear that they were going to take the bridges next. This was the scareiest day of my life and I had to see a majority of my friends deal with the loss of a loved one.

I am So glad he is dead. I hope it was a horribly painful death. May he rot in hell and I hope they get the others and brutally murder them as well. This is a good day!

@Miss Lilac: you may be right, but Osama Bin Laden Master minded 9/11 therefore this is a huge victory. He was a rich man and was able to make things happen. At least our guard is up like it always has been to prevent future attacks.

While I may not be out “celebrating” his death, I am certainly happy he was served some sort of justice.

Just think of all the innocent civilians killed on 9/11, and all of the soldiers we have buried in the subsequent wars – including a classmate of mine who was killed in Afghanistan at age 22. 

He left behind a pregnant wife. It’s not too difficult for me to be happy about Osama’s death.  If anyone deserved to die, it was him.
