  • of course we saw it coming...if an american so much as sneezes in their direction, they vow revenge. does anyone think killing BL would make AQ go away quietly??

  • and why I chose to not answer when the issue first occurred. IMO the citizens should have never been informed. Obama should have either informed fully and completely, truthfully-or kept the whole thing quiet for about 50 years. DH is ex Navy, and the first thing he said was " we threw alot of shit overboard at night, nobody ever knew. binladen gets tossed and we tell the world. "

  • I wouldn't go so far as to say I was thrilled. I didn't shed tears, but I didn't openly celebrate either. Frankly, the only think I am surprised about this news is that it took this long to even hit the MSM. I figured this was a given.

  • I was never "thrilled" - it seems so tacky to me to celebrate someone's death, even if they are an "evil" person. Truth is he was still someone's father, brother, son, husband. Yeah, I saw it coming, I just hope we are prepared. )c:
