so... bit late posting about his, but Osama is dead and all that. the question is, what difference will this make?
well, it appears to have removed the face of al-Qaeda , but the fact is that he  appears to have not exactly been instrumental in the latest plans of these terrorist organisations.  his death seems unlikely to spark anything other than retribution, especially as the us response has been so joyous, which seems particularly hypocritical given the adamant statements c. 2001-2 that it was wrong under any circumstances to celebrate a person's death.  not that i particularly care about the whole matter, as deaths due to terrorism worldwide is insignificant next to things like car crashes. one good thing that appears to have come out of this is that Obama's ratings are up, which is a welcome shift, as he is most definitely more agreeable than the archaic ideals of the GOP...

rant over, and on an entirely unrelated note, I recently watched a film called the straight story, and would recommend it to all, even if it is a little uneventful...

  4. Yeah, I know what you mean. All that's on the news is how the guys who killed Bin Laden are champs. He was just a symbol, they just lost their symbol... Doesn't mean anything will change
