As we all know, Osama Bin Laden was announced dead yesterday (May 1st).

When most people heard this news, they started celebrating. It's all over your Facebook wall, your YouTube subscriptions, and the ATS homepage: "Hooray! Laden's dead!".

My reaction was different. Instead of being happy about it, I started freaking out. I spent hours shaking and crying over this paranoia that has overcome me. I finally calmed down enough to make this thread, and I hope it reaches the front page.



Now here's the problem.


Some people seem to assume that, because Laden's dead, that we're all safe now. In reality, it's the opposite. We're in more danger than ever. Just because he's dead, doesn't mean al-Qaeda is. Laden's followers are now more ticked off than ever, and wants revenge.

And with every Facebook post, YouTube video, and ATS thread saying "Hooray! Laden's dead!", we're only making it worse for ourselves.We're just ticking them off even more. They're looking to cut our celebration short.


Imagine this -- You come from a family that is disliked by just about everybody because your father killed a person whom you believed deserved to be killed (just try to pretend). Then someone from their family came along and killed your father, whom you still loved very much. As mad as that already makes you, everywhere you go there are people celebrating your dad's death. Wouldn't that make you pretty darn mad? Well that's exactly how al-Qaeda feels.

Al-Qaeda is still out there, and it WILL seek revenge on America some way or another. And there's no way we can stop it. Don't believe that the government can save us, because they really can't. Do you understand why I'm so scared?


If you can avoid it, I advise you stay away from airplanes and major cities. I simply cannot bare the thought of another 9/11. It's not my safety I'm worried about, it's the lives of all American citizens -- I love you all, I would hate to see you gone.

Usually I would agree with you. But I have to ask, since 9/11 and all the current infringements of our rights and continued molestation of our liberties, are you safer with these new enacted rules?

A simple yes or no will suffice. We aren't all that great anymore.

* We manufacture nothing
* Infringe on our people rights
* Act as global police
* Embrace entitlements and Unconstitutional social welfare programs that are proven burden on the tax payer
* Breach the 4th Amendment rights of not only adults but children as well




America is stronger today then ever!


Is that so? So tell me why is the USD inflated, which in turn has pushed down the purchasing power of the dollar.

Why is are economy collapsing if we are so strong?

I think getting out and opening your eyes would do you loads of good!

Or it could be the prelude to a false flag terror attack. If you believe that sort of thing.

Why worry?

They were targeting us before his death. Expect the same after death.

For crying out loud can we stop using the phrase "AL QAEDA" as if it is one cohesive terror group with command and structure like the old provisional IRA- at best it is an umbrella name for any lunatic Islamic group out there

This made me nervous when I heard about it.
The "extremists" pretty much HAVE to retaliate somehow.
This is like calling em out in front of everyone, if they dont hit back then they lose face and that wont be allowed.
It may not be tomorrow or the day after but it will come I have no doubt of it and it wont be some little bitty thing.
When ya call out radicals be prepared for something extreme, whether its them or the govt or whoever I can't see this as some little attack,
Eyes and Ears people, be ready for any possibilities

Some are strong, not all. We do have a profound number of retards that embrace the left vs right paradigm, that continue with the division of our peoples.

I felt the same way too.


On the other hand, it's not like the terrorists were sitting around saying to themselves, "We hate America and we want to see it destroyed, but we don't hate it enough to do something about it. Maybe if something really bad happened, like Osama getting killed, then we'd engage in some terrorist activities."

I only read because you asked nicely


I don't use fb but my sister contacted me with more or less the same impression of the discussion there.

I'll tell you the same thing I told her.... people are dumb. That fact that he is now dead, makes my and your world no more safe. I, however, do think it makes me any more unsafe either. Honestly....I see Osama as a nonissue, it was revenge, it was punishment, but it will not stop the crazies. Personally, I have been under the impression that he has been dead for a number of years. His face or name is brought out every so often so to remind that " he lives", but ehhhhh.

Perhaps, if I knew someone that had died in the attack I may feel differently or feel a sense of relief, but that is not where my mind has been for a number of years.

What I do think will now occur, with Ladens death, is even more infringement on our rights, all in the name of national Security.
