Two Down.... How Many More to Go?


I don't think it's a coincidence that Osama bin Laden was killed 66 years (to the day) that Hitler was killed. For men like these, G-d creates a special place in Hell.

Today was a joyous day because America got a little reminder of what greatness we can accomplish when we work together -- we can take down monsters like Osama bin Laden. 

It's not exactly a man's death Americans are celebrating today (although in this case I think that would be 100% understandable), but it's the victory over terrorism that we are celebrating. With this leader's death, we have weakened a violent group.

No, terrorism does not end with Bin Laden's death, but it has taken a major blow; one which has taken us 9 years to do. So I congratulate our soldiers, applaud President Obama's action (as well as his staff) and give thanks to our trusted allies which have helped us get to this day.

I also feel extremely happy for the 9/11 victims who can now, finally, have a bit of closure over their loved ones who were brutally murdered.

The war is not over but this was the "Battle of Saratoga" of our time. Terrorist will look upon America and her allies and know that we mean business.
