So Bin Laden Is Dead

It’s taken a long time for bin Laden to be removed from the face of the Earth, but will his death change things?

It certainly won’t bring back any of the innocents who died at the World Trade Center, Shanksville, PA, or at the Pentagon. It may serve as a kind of healing balm for the survivors of those heroes, but will it end the “War on Terror”?

I don’t think so. Bin Laden had nearly 10 years since 9/11 to share his plans to destroy the United States with other radical extremists who are equally as evil as he was … although perhaps not as well known.

Any “surprise” plans already in the making have most likely been shared with the other unholy bastards who will most likely follow in bin Laden’s footsteps.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone: Evil begets evil.

Because bin Laden is dead should not be cause for any country to let its guard down. We could very easily be attacked while rejoicing, saying the Pledge of Allegiance “in one voice,” or while listening to the great Kate Smith singing her wonderful ‘God Bless America.’

Al Qaeda WILL take steps to avenge the death of its fallen “Arab holy warrior.” It’s only a matter of time. It might start with baby steps, attacks in other countries, or it might be one major leap right here in America, but as much as I hate to suggest it: It will happen, and when it does, it will be another disaster, perhaps even surpassing 9/11.

All countries in the “civilized” world need to band together as one, each doing its part to protect the others. The militant Arab world will not forget. The rest of the world can not afford to become complacent. Already Arab leaders are voicing their disapproval of the action taken by the United States.

I hope that this incident will not become a “badge of honor” for politicians: “We were responsible for …,” “It was on our watch,” and the like. Yes, the president approved the action, but the honor should go to the brave Navy SEALS who PERFORMED the action to bring bin Laden down. And although the fatal shot was apparently fired by one person … the entire team deserves to be honored and credited for the act.
