    Just saying.
    Bullcrap.

    Read a history book, man. WTF are you even talking about. Take a look at the American West.

    A smart Judge and tough Marshal could clean up things real fast.

    Finally we have both. Judge Obama and the U.S. Military did it!!

    What the hell are you talking about??

    Laws were followed. Bin Ladin resisted arrest (thankfully) and the Seals FOLLOWED ORDERS GIVEN BY THE DUELY ELECTED COMMANDER AND CHEIF.

    I'm not trying to argue and it's partially why I don't get caught up in this, but justice is what separates us from the animals, a firm set of rules.

    I'm not necessarily saying that this isn't a good thing, but it certainly isn't justice.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    One thing that would have been cool, but who knows what happened behind the scenes or if it was even thought of, was if Bush were to be standing next to Obama when the announcement was made. It would give the message that this is an American victory that much more strongly.

    jus·tice/ˈjəstis/Noun
    1. Just behavior or treatment.
    2. The quality of being fair and reasonable.
    3.The administration of the law or authority in maintaining this

    How is this anything but justice?

    Hey everyone, it's good to be glad about this. But don't let it distract us from the important issues facing our country. Namely, Obama's long form being a fake.

    THAT'S NOT WHAT HE SAID. He said we didn't take out Bin Laden cause it would have been premature and would have inspired feelings of martyrdom. Killing Bin Laden immediately after millions of Muslims celebrated 9/11 would have made him look like a martyr in a culture that relishes them. Do you think that in the 21st century any man is good enough to hide for nearly 10 years? No. We didn't kill him because we didn't need to. He probably escaped a few times but do you honestly doubt we didn't know his whereabouts until now? Get serious. I could find somebody halfway across the world just sitting in my computer.

    Well said!!

    Very well said. A light in the darkness.

    WE Americans!! WE Americans!! WE did this because the majority of us believe in the goodness of our country, we believe in the system, and we respect and support our troops.

    Haha, somehow I doubt it could be painted quite like that.
