I am so thankful for the work and sacrifice that our armed forces and their families make for the rest of us.
I am thankful that Bin Laden is no longer a threat to us, thanks to these men and women.
BUT, I feel certain that none of our troops gets a thrill over killing. I don't think any of them are over there because they get to shoot people. I know that is a nasty part of the job, they will do what needs doing...but not with malice.
So, my question is...Do you think that Americans having a "party" on the lawn of the White House, or posting vulgar photo's of Lady Libberty holding the severed head of Bin Laden makes us no better than him? What he did was savage, disgusting etc. But don't you think to pat ourselves on the back makes us look just as bad?
I give credit where credit is due...the armed forces. I truly hope this gives the families of the victims of 9/11 a sense of justice being served. But I think this "victory" is a serious matter and not someting the get so out of control over. Cheer on the troops, but don't glorify killing.
