Anyone remember how we (Americans) felt to see Middle Eastern crowds celebrating after 9/11? Well, it's not a far cry to think that someone will be feeling similarly about Bin Laden's death. Not that I'm worried about hurting their feelings, but we're talking about people who are waiting for the slightest excuse to hurt us.

It's a shame American have to have their festive atmosphere at the possible expense of others.

Osama Bin Laden's death is a welcomed cry, however the threat of terrorist attacks is Heighten. One down and there will be others. Congratulations to the Military bringing down OBL and the intelligence support it received. Don't let your guard down U.S. of A.

I had the same thought. Americans celebrating this is wrong. Be happy he's gone. If you feel justice has been done...fine! But to celebrate? Like it or not, it puts us on their level.

The power to assasinate is grand isn't. Besides taking credit for 911 (as many terrorist do whether they did or not) what proof was there tying 911 to Bin Laden?

LOL! This was staged to boost Odumbo's plunging ratings. Bin Laden died 9 years ago from kidney failure p/ White House officials at that time. He has been in the deep freeze waiting to be pulled out at just the right moment. Well, here we are. This was to divert attention away from the illegal wars, the collapsing Dollar, Government run health care, high unemployment, soaring inflation, etc.
So they dumped him in the ocean before anyone could see him! How convenient...

So you can't tell the difference between celebrating the deaths of thousands of innocents who were just going to work versus celebrating the person behind killing them? Scary.

How do WE know it was Osama bin Laden??? No body, no pictures, NO NOTHING!!!! Could have been a look alike for all we know. And WHY...if it is a law over there that the people need to be buried within 24 hours, then how did the USA keep the body of Saddam H. for 11 days??? Something is not Kosher!!!

Its NOT shameful that WE AMERICANS had our festive atmosphere. They do it all the time. Give the devils a taste of their own bitter meds. Its about time this country's citizens show their sentiments towards terrorists!!
