"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."- Edmund Burke

Osama did and stood for horrendous acts of evil so
good men did something about it. That`s cause for celebration in my book.

America, F*uck Yea!

Welllll, I would love if "we could quit this stupid charade," but I doubt that this means the end of our costly involvement in the middle east, unfortunately.

It doesn`t seem quite right to me to celebrate death, even if it is justified. Death can only be in the grays of morality, if that. Maybe the world is a safer place. Still, killing is something that, if justified, should be done begrudgingly.

throw around pseudo-pacifism all you want to shame us, we still honored Islamic tradition with his body. We aren`t as barbarian as some narrow minded Europeans are making us out to be.

Nothing wrong with this. Celebrating the revenge killing of a mass murderer is something we all should be able to get behind. I did not feel this way about Saddam Hussein. Nor did anyone else apparently.

Actually, I take that back, I celebrate his death and anyone else`s who sees what he did as acceptable and justifiable.

I celebrate that he`s gone not that he`s dead. We`d do the same thing if he was captured alive, so I don`t have a problem with it. I would have loved to pull the trigger though, so I can`t exactly claim to take the moral highroad on this one.

Yes, because it was Osama Bin Laden. He deserved no less.

This wasn`t just `the enemy`, he was evil. Like legit evil.

I`m kind of relieved that I am not the only one that feels a little weird about everyone being so happy that someone was killed. Its a good thing he is gone but I cant imagine going out and celebrating the fact.

I think you American have every right to celebrate the death of a murdering f*ckhead who killed thousands of your own, not to mention the thousands in other countries including 7/7 over here in the UK. Although I worry about the backlash his goons might unleash, I sincerely hope their plans of revenge fail spectacularly

I agree with obeydarklord, Sweet, Osamas dead but it doesn`t change anything at all, troops are going to stay and the fighting will continue as it has and we move to the next conflict.

As for the "THE WAR IS OVER! Time for the troops to return home. Yeah! We Won! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!" I hope that`s sarcasm, other wise lol your gonna be really disappointed.

Bah, all the American Military did was martyred Osama Bin Ladin. Of course he was still a CIA operative that was cut loose. Your enemy is on your pay roll, suckers.

While-in this country-one may have the right to this sort of reaction,I can`t help but see the similarities with gleeful folks in other lands burning our flag;And how they are scorned here as barbaric.
Empathy for another persons feelings or position is a desirable trait-something we sorely lack in our society.
Osama Bin laden is dead-how many millions of dollars did this take?How many collateral lives were lost?Has it been worth it?Some say yes,some say no.Other than a real coup for the media,and perhaps some to our president-what,really have we gained?Justice?Perhaps.Security?I doubt it-the man is like Palin-popping up now and again to spout some nonsense.I doubt anyone seriously planning any sort of terrorist activity would have let such a famously marked man in on their plans.
I would however,re-think American strategy in Pakistan.Something along the lines of stopping all foreign aid,recalling the Ambassador-and a little carpet bombing would not be out of line.

Don`t cheer for justice. Hide in your house and cower.

Before we killed Osama, the extremists wanted to cut off our heads and kill our children. But now they might really be mad!

Why wouldn`t it be okay? It might not be the end of terror, but it is the end of an evil man who plotted, and killed, thousands of innocent people.

Some people have been more directly affected by his actions than others, and I don`t think anyone has the right to judge people for their reactions to his death. For some people, it`s a sigh of relief and closure and finally moving on. People dancing in the streets isn`t a "right" or "wrong" reaction, it`s a reaction they more than entitled to have. Who cares if it hurts someone`s feelings or offends them? People with body odor offend me but I`m not going to drop dead because of it.

Hmm. I wonder when they`re going to release the video

"You should have been dancing a few years ago when he actually died. Or you could just continue celebrating your right to be dumb and misinformed."

So you must have been there huh? Did the killing yourself? Witnessed his "real" death? Clearly you had to be to make that statement. Not even the stupidest person in the world would just hear a wild conspiracy with the same amount of proof as the mainstream story and confidently claim that the conspiracy MUST be the truth. I mean you would have to be a total jackass to listen to that conspiracy, believe it on faith alone, and then call the rest of us misinformed.

As for cheering about it I think it`s fine. He did plan and succeeded to kill thousand of civillians amongst many other atrocities and I seem to recall middle eastern countries celabrating the deaths of thousands of citizens on 9/11 and burning this countries flag. We`re not burning any countries flag and are celabrating the death of only 1 very sick person there`s the difference.

If he is dead and there`s an after life I hope it`s him being sodomized for eternity by 72 male pigs.

I would cheer not to the point that a man is dead, but to the fact that a threat, a real danger to the free world is gone.

The world cheers not because a man died but because it is a better place than it was yesterday.

Only one thing can take away Americans` attention from British royalty getting married, and that`s killin` us some terrorists.

We discussed this in Government class today. We really shouldn`t be cheering the fact that we killed someone. It`s more than likely that he didn`t even have any real power or authority anymore, so his death will mostly have a symbolic effect. I just hope this doesn`t make the situation over there any worse.

It`s interesting to see that the ones in the pictures seen cheering were probably in grade school when 9/11 happen. I think that for them this is akin to a monster that has been present in their lives as long as they can remember being Slain, and although I personally cannot cheer about his death, I find nothing wrong at all with them cheering and carrying on.

Blaming Osama for "thousands upon thousands of deaths" is ridiculous.

He is one man. Terroriism will continue unabated like he never died at all.

This might have been understandable if it happened 9 years ago. Now though, its pretty sad and pathetic. Using this situation as an excuse to party is scummy to the lowest degree. Lets face it that is whats happenning here. A lot of these people, probably a big majority, are only interested in a bit of excitement and getting drunk, they don`t give a f-uck about the people who died.

I mean come on, it was US foreign affairs that incited the 9/11 attacks. US responds with 2 wars and 10 years of giving young people a reason to join the so called jihad.

Will you ever learn? All lives are valuable...

When will everyone else learn? The good ol` USofA is and has been a military type of government. It`s almost as if poo isn`t going right when our military isn`t out whoopin on some foreign ass. America has been out there since the end of WWII doing the same old same old. Get over it? :|

Sorry Kiaran, but I think you are wrong. They don`t have the capacity to pull off any attacks like 9/11 and Osama was loved and looked up to by the extremists. I don`t think they have that for al Zawahiri or ever will.

This only shows how apathetic the US public is towards their long history of violence, which in part enabled anti-American terrorism.

Although Osama deserved what he got for what he did, I dont think hes death will really change anything in the middle east. If anything insurgents will probably use this as an excuse to step up attacks on westerners. But thats just my opinion.

so you`re saying we can`t be happy that a man who killed thousands upon thousands of people throughout his life is finally dead?

So I guess Hitler`s death was pretty sad too right?

I think so too. So many cell phones...

I can`t really blame them. So many lost on 9/11... if it affected you, then I can`t blame you for cheering along.

If it didn`t though, then you`re just an american, and I couldn`t care less.

people got very upset at the images of some muslims cheering the destruction of the towers - cheering the death of Osama bin Laden is the same petty crap.

There are people who feel they have just as much cause to hate americans, as americans feel they have to hate Osama bin Laden - why act just like them?

Be relieved. Be glad that he cannot plot to kill anyone else. Celebrate the courage and training and fortitude of the personnel who brought him down.

But celebrating the death of any human cheapens everyone`s life.
