    If it is confirmed that he is dead we must double our vigilance to insure that we destroy all terrorists, particularly the leaders, who choose to act as he did. On icon of terror may be dead, terrorism isn't.

    I do show support, to those who actually have beared the burdon of defending this country ( unlike our "fearless" leader). I am happy, I am thrilled and I thank God there are those who sacrafice everyday so we can live our lives the way we do. To think "he" had anything to do with this, I highly beg to differ, and I will leave it at that. This is not about us, our views or "him". This is about our past, present and future and I agree, we all need to celebrate and I highly agree with your post about the younger generation. I just hope they really understand the significance of this and what it means, and do not see it as a means to another party!

    I agree as well. However, when was the last time outside of New Years eve you saw dancing in the streets after midnight on a Sunday night. It is significant to our country's emotional well being. Point blank, it's sweet, sweet revenge.

    I'd like if someone could explain the significance of this to me. His name is one people haven't even thought of the past several years. Since he's been out of the spotlight, several others have taken his place, and more will step up now that he's been martyred.

    If anything, I think this is going to cause more shit to hit the fan over there, meaning we have a whole lot less to celebrate.

    Thanks to the dedication and professionalism of the US Intellegence and Military communities. And as I watch the young kids celebrating outside the White House singing the National Anthem I read
    Unbelievable, well then again...

    Evan, it is all about leadership. To wage a war against a foe for over a decade and to finally kill that foe's leader, that is significant. Our leader does not hide. Our leader has fixed address that is readily available to anyone who wishes to look it up. Our leader does not hide in a fucking cave. Our leader does not cozy up to other nation's leaders for security. Regardless of who our leader has been for over 230 years our nation has had a leader who is expected to stand on point by the citizens of our nation. Our last two Presidents committed to find this terrorist leader and bring him to justice. It is all about leadership and it has significance to many, maybe not to you.

    There will be repercussions. There will be outrage from his supporters. This brings the pot to a new boiling point.

    I can see that viewpoint. Sure, we have vengeance, but at what cost? If this escalates things in a bad way, which if you know much about their culture, it most likely will... Then those that are serving this country will be spread even more thin, and put in even more time over there away from their friends and families. I don't celebrate that for a second.

    I'll celebrate when this shit show is all over.

    So I ask, have you served? Have you carried the burden of your country? Have you seen death either via conflict or crime? Have you seen your brothers or sisters who took the oath fall while you pushed on?

    The significance, has as been stated, this is a moral victory for those who are fighting for us and for us. I did mention that we should prepare, because there will be retaliation and yes, this will cause many of the extremest groups to rise and try to claim the top spot. However, to say this isn't significant, one way or the other would be to fool yourself.
