I'm glad he's dead. I personally blame him and GWB for the death of my brother in Iraq. I was happy that the man that planted the IED that blew up my brother was found and brought to justice (I actually don't know what happened to him) and I'm glad that bin laden has been killed. I'm not celebrating or jumping for joy, though. I will be celebrating and jumping for joy when all our troops are brought home from Iraq and Afghanistan. I feel like I know how a murder victims family might feel at the execution of the convicted. It does feel like the circle is complete and the book is closed (I don't want the fbi to knock at my door, so I won't say anything about GWB). I'm not HAPPY, by any means. But I do believe that 2 out of the 3 people responsible for my brother's death have been brought to justice. I know how the other almost 6000 soldier's families, and the 3000 victim's families that died on 9/11, feel right now. 9/11 was a prefect excuse for GWB to send my brother into Iraq. I hate bin laden for giving him that excuse. I'm glad bin laden's hate has been silenced. I'm sure another member will step up and take his place, though. I hope at least, that this secures Obama's second term.
I do think it's "funny" that I see all over facebook that we shouldn't be giving credit to Obama because it's the troops that did it, but if it was Bush, he would have been taking credit ("mission accomplished", anyone?) and everyone would be praising him!
