    Osama Bin Laden is dead

    Moderator's Warning:
    Osama Bin Laden is deadThis thread is for discussion of the death of Osama Bin Laden and its affects on policy, the wars, the world, or general arguing or views on it that are negative or partisan in nature. Please, no complaining in this thread that people can't just enjoy the death, or for making it overly partisan (unless you have an argument related to it, not just a complaint). Again, this is for discussion, positive or negative, of how this death impacts or reflects upon things/people.

    Would the American soldiers who killed him have any chance of the $25 Million dollar reward for Laden.

    I am wondering that too. They should give em that money but they will probably try to say they were just doing their jobs. They should get that reward money.

    I doubt it, but wouldn't it be great if they did and they donated it all to the families of the victims of 9/11?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    My response to this in the other thread before it was locked was that Bush's mistakes about taking his eye off the ball weren't the place in that thread. President Bush started this by first going after him and President Obama ended it. It doesn't matter what, you, me, or anyone else thinks about how Bush conducted the war. President Obama owned it to Bush not only as the former president, but as man to man. Bush had the right to hear from Obama that we got the bastard first. Bush had the right to know what he started Obama helped finish tonight.

    Anybody directly or indirectly involved with the intelligence and the mission should split it.

    I've got no problem with that.

    However great this news is, I fear for the safety of our troops in the middle east. I'm sure it is going to be a rough couple of weeks ahead. Here's to hoping they remain as safe as possible.

    Finding him was the result of a tip -- I'd say the tipster has a good chance...
