This is a good point about Osama's death....

One of my friends pointed out....Everyone is so happy about Osama's death...but what about the retaliation of it? Those people worshipped him...what will they do to us in return??

I'm scared about what can happen in the next few weeks :(

  • Very good point. I wonder...will Obama be taking credit for that as well?

  • I have been pointing out to my friends the retaliation factor. Doesn't make me very popular. The voice of reason usually is not very popular I guess.

  • This is a very good point and of course there is a risk of retaliation. I am sure there is someone who is more than willing to take Bin Laden's place now that he is dead. It is very scary.

  • I'm worried too. My Mom said she read in the news this morning that the government says retaliation is to be expected basically.

  • The first thing that popped into my head is the fact that his minions aren't going to just say "ohhh they killed our figurehead. let's pack up & go home". They'll want retaliation.

  • Last night someone on CM said the Islam blogs are worth reading. She said there will be retaliation. I do not read their blogs, but was not shocked by her comment. Retaliation is to be expected.
