56. "Resolves"? No-one is claiming this "resolves" anything.
As for the video footage you mention, perhaps you forget the video footage of bin Laden "praising God" of the thousands of innocents that were killed.

"Turn the other cheek" simply does not always work. I was bullied in school, and I "turned the other cheek" as much as I could. It worked sometimes - sometimes it did not. The biggest bully I ever dealt with did not relent until I confronted him - and beat him.

This is the REAL WORLD, David.

There is a time for diplomacy, and there is a time for action. I'll admit that too many times in the history of the US we opted for action when we should have chosen diplomacy.

This is NOT one of those times.

Sure, we reap what we sew. If you want to really analyze this you have to go back to when we installed the Shah of Iran and, once we realized our mistake, installed Saddam as a "hedge" against Iran. Or maybe just go back to our training of bin laden as a Freedom Fighter against the USSR. We could also go back to how we enslaved Africans or stole land from Native Americans. Where do we draw the line?

I'll draw the line right here: bin Laden killed thousands of innocents (Christians AND Muslims) and then praised God about it. He was a sick and evil person. I feel more pity for the diseased cockroach I step on, because the cockroach had no malice in it's intent.

Osama did.
