107. Right or wrong,
...I am happy that laden is dead. Not happy jumping up and down or partying.. but any other word would feel untrue. He, in my opinion deserved death, and due to his actions, made that the only possibility. Some things will change now while others will remain the same. I hope that people's perceptions will allow for or demand.. "mission accomplished" and thus begin the process of bringing our troops home. I believe the odds of any president ending this so called war on terror without Laden being captured or killed was very unlikely.

The first time I read through your post I admit it annoyed me greatly. The second time I find that I agree with the vast majority of it. The problem is none of it matters right now, in the moment. We as a country.. our government is responsible for many of the events that led to where we are today through action or inaction. That is just fact. The people wanted justice, and in their eyes they just received it. And it was justice, but only a small piece compared to what I believe your talking about. I hope this creates an out both for the president, and for the American people. What needs to happen from here.. well, I don't think anyone on this site needs me to be lecturing on whats obvious. Thanks for your thoughts.
