At least they (successfully) tried to keep casualties to a minimum.
Hell Yeah!!! I'm so glad he's dead. I'm not an American but this is soooo relieving to hear this however I wonder what will happen? will the terrorists retaliate?
READ Rukh, please.Think Deo, please.
Seriously? No, fuck you. People should not be "glad" that he's dead, we should not be deriving pleasure from the death of another human being.Hell Yeah!!! I'm so glad he's dead.
What I find sick is the fact that not even a few years ago, a joke like this would end up someone being interrogated by the gov :/How, exactly, do you know osama?
Are you a terrorist, Rukh?
Well, are you?
If they are still celebrating tomorrow that is a bad sign.It is pretty sickening, and normally I would be right there with you. There's just something about this instance that I can't explain, and while I don't feel like celebrating, I don't feel like yelling at the celebrators just yet. It's like they needed this.
\I'll give it a day before I start ranting about it
Edit: I'm not trying to defend my morality as perfect here. I know I'm not a paragon of virtue. Oh well.
Why is it wrong? Morality is subjective, blah blah blah, I can see the celebration of the death of good or otherwise neutral people as being horrible. But this fellow has been bringing nothing but bloodshed, aggression, and inhumanity wherever he's tred, and he's inspired, equipped, and mentored countless others. There is no shame in celebrating this. Petty it may be, it's all most folks got.
It's a fair bit deeper than this. In fact, it's way fucking deeper. In fact, the Cold War never ended.
He had almost none. He was killed for revenge to placate the masses.I think this is going to be more of a symbolic victory for the US.
I mean, how much power could he actually have had at the time of death?
How does the death of a man who has no current influence in terrorist activities "free the countries in the middle east"? Hyperbole and asinine assumptions anyone?This is definitely a good day in the war against terror and freeing the countries in the middle east from its grip.
No.The way I see it Deo, Osama Bin Laden was not a human, he was a monster. So we raided his dungeon, killed him without standing in the fire and stole his epic loots.
The rabble will never change. And what might have, could have, would have been, but never was ain't a relateable fact to them. That, and Saudi creme de la creme aren't known for their good hearted nature. And who are we to judge what place any person comes from? What makes us better judges of character than another?And when people celebrate the execution of someone they had absolutely nothing to do with, who for all they know might be innocent, it's for similar reasons, "because it's all they got". They want someone to pay for the fact they hate their job, or that they don't have one, or that they don't get on with their family, or whatever. Deo's right. They're not at all coming from a good place when they "celebrate" someone's death. They'd be coming from a good place if they lamented the fact that someone like Osama bin Laden used their wealth, influence, intelligence and sheer charisma for evil instead of good. But he turned out the way he did for the same fundamental reason you guys feel and react the way you do; because it's simply easier to feel spite and hate than remorse, and to be glad the bad guy went away (in the short term) instead of wishing they could have been one of the good guys.
Yeah, but the toys just get more and more dangerous.The Cold War never ended the way the Roman Empire never fell. The Russians are still half a continent's worth of sociopathic crime cartels pretending they're a legitimate government, and the Italians and their former Roman provinces are still a bunch of stubby, greasy heathens doing a piss poor job at being Christian or Roman, but nonetheless, the leaderships have changed, the ideologies have changed, the borders on all the maps have changed, the eras have changed. So "it's over" enough.
Seriously? No, fuck you. People should not be "glad" that he's dead, we should not be deriving pleasure from the death of another human being.
I'm not going to jump on the wagon of "YEAH HE'S DEAD, WOO HOO!". I don't celebrate anyone's death, nor do I find happiness in his death. To be honest it would have been better for us if he was captured alive and fully interrogated for information, though we may have done that (I'm not clear on the circumstances of his death, if we got information out of him, and no I do not mean torture as a means of interrogation). I am not glad, or happy over this man's death, but I am feeling a small sense of relief that perhaps there is a lessened threat of violence and death in the world. Perhaps. Not that the death of an old, ailing, past leader of Al Qaida has the same meaning it did when Osama Bin Laden was actually running the show. We need the current leaders of Al Qaida, not the leaders from ten years ago killed and their deaths celebrated out of some perverse revenge.
We do not dehumanize. When people demonize and dehumanize each other it ends in more bloodshed. Everyone is a person, everyone has basic human rights. It is childish to pretend that he is a monster in order to defend our sick glorification of his death.
Deo, the next few days are gonna be hell for you because people will be celebrating.
Face it, this is a very evil dude we're talking about, he killed thousands of people on our soil which dragged us into this war, and is responsible for many other deaths in other countries. He's a religious extremist, and influenced many innocent people to follow him. Saying that Osama shouldn't be dead is about the equivalent of saying that Hitler shouldn't be dead.
He deserves to die, he seriously fucking does, there's no arguing that at all.
