Osama Bin Laden Is Dead!!!

Yes, Osama Bin Laden is Dead!!!

After a long 10 year of war and terrorist attacks, we have finally killed the head of the snake.

Yes, there will be other heads who will be trying to graft themselves onto the top of the Al-Qaeda reptile, but this is a huge accomplishment in the war on terrorism.
Twitter is ablaze with
#binladen tweets.  Most of them are celebrating the death of the terrorist leader and some of them are asking if it is too early to tell Bin Laden jokes.

Wondering where he was found?  A cartographer identified the location of the Bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and marked it on the Google Map. Search for
Osama Bin Laden's Compound in Google Maps and it will take you to the spot. 



It is amazing to see the immediacy of this identification. The funny part is that as of 12:27 AM CST, people have already posted 180 reviews of the compound.  They are complaining about bed bugs and poor maid service. 

I don't know what to say that is profound about tonight's events. By the time you read this, who knows what will have happened in the world as a result this event. It may be an escalation of the  war or, hopefully, it will mean a reduction in the peril in the world. 


Whatever the change in world, it can be said that the world will never be the same.


How has it affected your world?

    Hi there Leigh! A cheer of "Yes!" escaped my lips when I heard the news, although it does feel a little wrong to celebrate a person's death. However, I wholeheartedly agree with one NY newspaper headline which showed Bin Laden's picture and the caption "Rot In Hell". Indeed.
