Okay. He’s dead. Our guys found a treasure trove of intel. Okay.
Tune into any news channel, regardless of bias, and you hear the same questions being asked, about torture (aka waterboarding) sympathy for a president who “made the decision”, should we pull out of Afghanistan or not, what did Pakistan know, ad infinitum.
Okay, bin Laden’s dead. What did it do for us? Not much except for the intel which will be squandered for PR purposes.
Will terrorism end? No. However, the truth is that exception for the glaring incidence of 9/1/01 and the occasional plane hijacking, and the USS Cole, Muslims kill more Muslims in terror attacks than all the infidels combined, regardless of what the infidels’ country of origin is.
So, it’s time to pull out of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and other divers places and let them to return to normal, aka fighting amongst themselves. Eventually, only the terrorists will be left standing and we’ll know where they are. What I don’t hear from the Muslims is condemnation of terrorist acts, even as they are the ones who suffer the most. Except for the occasional individual Muslim, that is. I do hear a lot of hate on both sides, those on the side of the killing and those on the side of those being killed.
We, (infidels) are just the excuse being used by both sides for the rationalization of it.
Golda Mier once said that the killing wouldn’t stop until they loved their children more than they love killing us. They haven’t reached that point, yet.
One is really rather indifferent to the whole incident. Oh sure, one is almost as glad as the next person that bin Laden is gone but that’s about as far as it goes. In the long run, it won’t change anything at all.
