a good excuse to leave as the US finally "got" its man.

It should boost him in the polls with some.
How long he can ride the wave will depend on what comes of this.
It's too early to tell what, if any, real help this will be to Obama when Americans are more concerned with rising gas prices, food prices, and a decline in the buying power of the dollar.

Apparently, he was killed in a mansion outside Islamabad. Good job Pakistan; you suck at hiding shit.

That's a good point you make Asuras.
This proves Osama was hiding in Pakistan.
That begs the question.
Did Asif Ali Zardari know Bin Laden was in his country?

With a confirmed DNA test that he's dead, Al Qaeda is going to want revenge in a very bad way.
I hope everyone doesnt think him dying is going to bring our troops back home , because if we pull out now and we're this far in ( dont thatswhatshesaidplease) it'll just be a waste .

Opra Winfrey Tweeted at the news,

"Does this mean the wars over?"

Election day 2012 is in November and Americans tend to forget about things in six months in political terms.

I agree Cream, if anything the death of Bin Laden could exacerbate the situation and cause more harm than good.
However, it is too quick to tell at this point.
We'll just have to wait and see what Al Qaeda's next move will be now.

It is so funny to tune in to fox news right now. Instead of focusing on the positive aspects of his death (for obvious political reasons) they are focused on the impending martyrdom effect that is likely to come.

I just heard the news on this. So yeah, the world is now -1 major terrorist leader and nothing of value was lost. Quite literally, actually.

Of course! Fox News is just rotten! If a Republican was President now, they'd be praising them like crazy.




Also, lol to this:
