Celebration in the streets.
I was 11 years old (barely, my birthday was 5 days before the towers fell) when this started. Some people's childhood was bookended by the Harry Potter series, my childhood has been bookended by this man. Today I am nearly 21 years old. That's a long time to be wondering where Osama Bin Laden would show up next.
I thought I would feel more...
Don't get me wrong. I applaud and celebrate the soldiers in our military. This is their victory, even more than it's America's victory in general.
I won't rehash a topic that The Conservative New Ager has covered so well in his blog already. His concerns about the future are my own and I would recommend you read his post. I don't feel at all ready to contemplate all the political and military ramifications of this event.
I find it in poor taste to address my severe dislike of Obama and the liberal reactions to Osama's death here in this post. Suffice to say that we should give credit where credit is due and no credit, of any kind, is due to Obama in this case. I've yet to listen to his speech, but, from what I've heard from others, he's taking far to much credit personally. He is not the one responsible and to even pretend so, or even joke about it, is to completely write off the contribution of the United States Military.
That's all for me tonight.
