Good Riddence. Now I am tired of us spending our resources and man power for this people in the middle east. Time to come back home. No more war, it costs too much damn money especially when we are already in the RED !

Next time a dictator or terrorist wants some, just send Seal Team 6 again and get the job done quickly.

Why does the press have to keep apologizing for the fact that the US took out a major criminal. We don't care if we was unarmed. We don't care if he could have fled on a moment's notice. We just don't care. We care that he got what he deserved, and he won't be inciting other terrorist actions. End of story, please.

Murdering an unarmed man and using "he didn't raise his hands" as an excuse is so simple minded and counterproductive, one would think top level decision making results from years of drug abuse and selling crack at college.

Bin Laden would have been very much useful alive. He could have been turned into a Christian for all the Muslim world to see.

Though I agree that Bin Laden should have been killed, I think we should have captured him and he be interrogated by people capable.

Then he should have been killed and our attention belongs on the people who were victims of 9-11 and the combat that followed.

I agree to a point but if Pakistan shuts us down right now we have no avenue to get supplies to our troops according to some commander I listened to last night. I think we can agree that if it wasn't for oil we could give a rats ass about any of these countries or the scum that are sheltered there. I would just as soon see all our troops brought home and let the crazy bastards kill each other like they have been doing for thousands of years and that includes Israel, but you have the oil factor which I think is total BS but that's for another day..........
