America!

I feel that this is appropriate at this point... I'll leave it to someone else to be serious at this point.

I'm surprised they found him. It has been about 10 years since the 9/11 attack. So now that he's dead, is the world a safer place?

Not really. He'll become a martyr for terrorist groups, and another will take his place.

To be honest Im surprised he was still alive. I assumed no one would ever hear of Bin Laden again because he had died years ago in those mountains. Doesnt change anything, but at least there is closure and a little bit of justice.

While I'm glad he's gone, I do feel jealous about all the virgins he gets to nail now.

FTFY. :P




I think they believe in the whole female virgin reward only if you suicide and successfully kill others while doing so.

As soon as this happened, I should have logged out of facebook. I much more enjoy not knowing many of my friends are just ignorant and will spew garbage about anything political.

As I understand it, it's that being martyred (the idea that suicide bombing qualifies is dubious at best) guarantees admission to paradise, but everyone who goes there will supposedly be paired with at least one beautiful virgin mate. AFAIK, the specific number of 72 that is often thrown around is some kind of numerological exaggeration that only shows up in one place in a non-authoritative commentary.

He's been buried to sea? Where the fuck is my evidence?

I'm going to go ahead and call bullshit on this now.

I think it might have been staged so that obama could get his approval rating increased.

So what you're saying is that if they all decided to get together and blow each other up, everybody wins?

That's Usama, not Osama.

Xylene is right, Usama is actually the proper way to pronounce/spell his name.

When I heard the news this morning, I said 'that's cool' and went on with my day. I mean, it's been nearly 10 years now. If you want to really shock me, tell me they actually started building something at the Trade Center site.

I have been waiting for this since I was 7 years old. Fucking finally, but fuck yeah!

A slight tip of the hat to Obama, although I'm sure this entire operation actually traces itself back to the end of the Clinton administration.
