    Default finally, enemy #1 Bin Ladin is dead



    I am watching the special report- the rat is dead. The symbol and the perpetrator and the thorn in our side is dead. Politics are not allowed here, but I am interested in comments about what this means to you in terms of historical context and military strategy.

    Wow, I turned on the news to watch the weather, and the report came on. Sure wasn't what I was expecting, but it is a good day for the country and the world, no matter the political affiliation. This might be almost as memorable as 9/11 itself. A long time coming...

    Good thing Pakistan dropped the dime. I am pleased to hear that an American operation made this happen.

    Enemy #1 dead????have not seen the body,(or double) politics or not, obama dem/rep will probably get the cudos. HOPEFULLY we will be done in LOSTINTHESAND,and IRAQ. we are still in Iraq in small military forces there, unfortunely people have already forgot that. I've got 5 yrs between those countries hopefully those people can sleep,along w/ all the fellow soldiers. but the soldiers wont be sleeping they will be on extra watch because people will be mad at the soldiers for doing ther job ,
    Historical means this guy will go down in the history right beside hitler and all of there other dirty buddies
    great job brothers and sisters in uniform b safe take care

    Good that he's dead, but I doubt al-Qaida will collapse because he's gone.

    Amazing news! I wanted to go to bed, but now I have to stay up and listen to more commentary from the bobble-heads. A happy day for our country to be sure. But be extra cautious if you are traveling... I assume we pissed some people off. I wouldn't be surprised if plans were already in-the-making for retaliation for this outcome.

    I don't find this topic to be one of political nature. We all wanted Binladin dead or alive. (The dead option was better in my book).

    Thank you to all who served and all who are still serving. You give so much to all of us.

    Of course Rob. He was merely the leader, the figurehead of his particular brand of extremism. Too bad all extremism can't die with him. It would be great if al-Quida unraveled, even just a little.

    Jackie, I still had to preface it. I would like to see this thread go on, and not be censored because someone goes on a rant about Obama or Bush, etc.

    I hear ya Stephanie! I think everyone, Dems/Reps are in the same party room right now clinking glasses, hi-fiving and hugging! It's not over, but it's a HUGE step!

    Long time coming! I only wish he maybe suffered a little before he kieled over. My message to Al Quieda, he won't be missed.

    A special thanks to the trigger men.

    Amen to that! Can you imagine being the shooter??? I'm no killer and never want to be, but to take that animal out would have been a pleasure.

    You got it. There are probably 1000 other brain dead hard of thinking fanatics ready to step into his place, sad to say.

    Thanks for serving guys! Good shot to the shooter. Don't stop shooting yet....

    Ayman al-Zawahiri is the second in command. He's a huge douche-nozzle, too! Hopefully it won't be long before we tag him too. While he is nuts, I don't think he is quite as batsh!t crazy as bin Laden.

    From what i read on the wall street journal he is not as popular as bin laden with the extremists, meaning he probably won't be able to fill the position left open when we killed bin laden, hopefully leading to a collapse of their entire organization.
