    Osama Bin Laden killed: How the world is reacting

    Osama Bin Laden killed: How the world is reacting - CSMonitor.com

    Here is a rundown of some of the reactions I have found so far from the international community

    Quote Originally Posted by PLO

    But defence analyst and former general Talat Masood said the fact bin Laden was killed in a joint operation would limit the damage to Pakistan’s image.

    Karzai's comment was somewhat toolish and I am curious to see more how India feels about Bin Laden being in Pakistan.

    I have a bit more respect for the PLO of TODAY, but given their past history their words seem somewhat hypocritical.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
