I happened to watch Apocalypse Now (redux) on Saturday and it's interesting to think about this in the context of the movie. Anyway, I think it's good news for the families of Al Qaeda and OBL's victims, and good for the morale of the armed forces. It's a shame it doesn't seem like it'll have much more impact beyond that... it's not likely to affect the war on terror in a big way, and in terms of domestic affairs the left and the right seem to be doing their usual thing and trying to find ways to tear one another to pieces. This is so much more than something to see debated on little green footballs, huffpo, et. al... it has the potential to provide closure and unite people, but it seems like nothing's changed so far. In 2008 you could really see a divide start to form in the American public. It's grown wider and wider. The idea that something like this will probably only serve to make that divide even greater is sad.

The boyfriend of one of my friends was saying stuff like:

i seen that this morning it about time they do something right

i know i have a point. they are not going to do anything.

they will be to scard to retaliate

with Bin Laden dead they will probably just eventually fade away because they believed he was bigger that the US and we proved that he was just an ordinary man when out troops killed him. they have no real leader now because all their beliefs were his.

it ain't gonna matter cuz we are gonna whip their asses like we've been doing. they will get the message and go into hiding if they are smart.

Reading all of those gave me two emotions:
1) I laughed at a few
2) The majority made me sick

I am not a fan of Obama because I am from a conservative family but I wouldn't wish our President dead, that is just stupid to think. And second, it makes me sad to think that a lot of people don't know who Osama Bin Laden is. If you are under a certain age, sure, but a lot of people are my age and older, it is pathetic.

I just read through all the stuff I missed over night. All I can say is its very refreshing to see people feeling the same way I do.

Once again I understand why people are celebrating, I truly do. Its just very upsetting to see how they're doing it. Not necessarily in this thread but the people who took to the streets. In my eyes all they've done is kill another person. Just another casualty of war. And thats no cause for the celebration that has been going on. But I suppose that is the American way it seems. I wish more people could see things from a different perspective instead of being blinded by "patriotism". Im all for loving your country, but sometimes its like Patriotism is used an excuse to do some bad things, or in this case celebrate the death of a single man.

Would there be this much of a celebration if say all of America got free healthcare? I really don't think so. What do you guys think?

No need to appologize for sharing your opinion, it's your right.

Just like it's my right to think your opinion is pretty shit. Because it's just the way us stupid, fat Americans are with our tyranical rulers, poor education and over patriotism.
