I wouldn't be jumping up in the air clicking my heels just yet. For every rat you see and kill there's a hundred more that you didn't. Bin Laden's replacement could be just as crazy and dangerous (or even more so).

Yes and you can bet he already had some one trained and ready to fill his shoes ..... The USA is liable to see something horriffic in retaliation to his killing. I wouldn't get too comfortable yet.

There's home of the brave and then there's home of the stupid. Guess which house you occupy.

These things are not mutually exclusive. One can be both brave and stupid.

I think we, as a nation, enjoy a good boogeyman. I think we enjoy the idea that some great evil lurks out there that we must confront. There rarely is, so we must create one.

With a rare exception (the result of a wild fluke), these terrorist organizations are not nearly as threatening as we'd like to believe. More often, the Columbine kids were more effective than the vast majority of attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda.
