Osama bin Laden
Congratulations are in order. To our service men and women. To our intelligence operatives. To the Navy Seals. To our President, and our former President, and others who have devoted so much time and effort to finding Osama Bin Laden and seeing justice done.
Bin Laden is now gone. May he not rest in peace. May he burn in hell. May he forever feel the pain of those he torched at Ground Zero. And may those who lost loved ones find some solace in the fact that the United States refused to let him die a natural death.
Now comes the question of what we do in Afghanistan.
Frankly, I am weary of war. I am tired of reading of dead American soldiers whose blood has been spilled on foreign soil, in wars we did not need to fight, in countries that are of no vital interest to the United States, and of that war in Afghanistan… which has now lasted longer than any war in American history. Now that we have accomplished our stated mission in Afghanistan, can we now bring our troops home and say mission accomplished?
I hope so.
