Oh What a Day

I don't know if it is quite the same outside of New York City and Washington DC as it is from the inside, but there are just no words to describe how good it feels to get up at the start of another week workin for the man, making the morning rat race commute, and to hear the news that Osama Bin Laden is now just a dead body. Even with all the people I wished gory, tortuous death in the online poker chatbox back in the day when we were allowed to play it in the U.S., this particular "elimination" is really something to smile about. It not only ends an agonizing period of national embarrassment at not being able to show this garbagepail what happens to people who attack innocent American citizens like he did 9 1/2 years ago now, but also, the world today is quite literally a safer place than it was yesterday. For all of us. Even other crazed Muslim jihadists will live in a safer place due to the heroic actions of the U.S. Navy.

Go rejoice. Explain to your kids why this is such a big thing. Even those who weren't alive on 9-11.

I find it mildly humorous that you recommend telling your children who were not alive on 9/11 (and therefore are under 10 years old) why killing Osama Bin Laden is such a great thing. I know what you mean, so don't get me wrong there, but the image of telling a toddler, "Today is a good day Timmy, because we killed Osama Bin Laden" is hysterical.

Poorly worded. "Your children" as in the reader's children.

It is funny how stupid americans still are after being humiliated so many times. Do you really think that you are an example for your children if you cheer at someones death the same way as when you win a basketball-game ?

I can understand that you are relieved by hearing the news but do not think for a minute that the world is a safer place. May I remind you that the USA made the world violent by selling their weapons to all who wants to buy and showing an arrogance that is never been showed in history of mankind.

So if you tell you children that the US killed Osama, please also tell them that you supported Osama back in the days when Russia wanted to invade Afghanistan. Just like the US suported Hoessein for years and like all world leaders who work together with the US he was betrayed. Teach your children the history of the world, not the history you people get teached in school where all US crimes are not told. Please, be that objective.
