Osama bin Laden Dead


President Obama just announced that Osama bin Laden was killed in a US operation in Pakistan.

From CNN's breaking article: "For several months before that last tape's release, however, U.S. officials had received specific information about where bin Laden may have been hiding in Pakistan, according to President Barack Obama.

On Sunday, the president said he ordered an operation -- carried out by a handful of U.S. troops -- to kill bin Laden in Pakistan. They did so after a firefight, bringing out the al Qaeda leader's body with them after their mission was complete.

"His demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity," Obama said in a speech announcing bin Laden's death. "Justice has been done."

It took a long time to find him. But I wonder: What will his being dead actually change? Sure he is dead . But.....

Good.

That's all I can say. If I said anymore I'd go on an angry tirade.

Should have clarified: I'm glad he's dead.

My first reaction was a sarcastic "finally!"

Then again, when I think about his rude awakening he met in the spiritual world, I can't help but feel sorry for him!

Although yes, I think justice has been done, it seems to me that we're reacting incorrectly by rejoicing over his death. "For we battle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities..."
