I would say the savage butchery, rape and pillaging by US and UK soldiers that has taken place over the last decade in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya, has provided a far better recruitment tool for extremists than Osama ever could. His death will only reinforce the will of the people that have been so cruelly oppressed for a decade. America forgot the number one rule: When you become obsessed with the enemy, you become the enemy!
25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[c]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Nothing good can ever come out of the mass rejoicing and sickening images I have seen in the media over the past 24 hours. They are literally revelling in it all like pigs rolling around in #. It's so dehumanising. Don't you realise that propaganda like this is the reason most of the world is now so Anti-American.
The world is no safer with Osama dead. In fact, I would say the savage butchery, rape and pillaging by US and UK soldiers that has taken place over the last decade in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya, has provided a far better recruitment tool for extremists than Osama ever could. His death will only reinforce the will of the people that have been so cruelly oppressed for a decade.

I feel Martin Luthor King Jr summed the current situation up succinctly.
”I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

To be honest, there is more evidence supporting the fact that Hamas were responsible for 9/11 due to the US's continuing support of Israel. However, going after Hamas would not bear fruit, or oil for that matter. Hence the decision to use Iraq and Osama Bin Laden as a patsy by the US government in order to gain access to Iraq and finish what Bush Snr had started. If that was the case, everything we have witnessed over the past decade is a monumental lie and those who are responsible for 9/11 will never be brought to justice. The possibility of this alone should anger every American.
And your lack of sarcasm failed to comprehend the humour in my post. The CIA outfitted Al Qaeda, they are a creation of our own making. Giving new meaning to the term reaping what you sow. The rebels in Libya are Al Qaeda and now they are fighting on our side. Utterly laughable. The entire situation.edit on 3-5-2011 by UndisclosedDesire because: (no reason given)
