What was your reaction when you heard Osama Bin Laden was dead?

When I heard the news of Osama Bin Laden, I wasn't joyful, I wasn't elated and no matter how evil, I couldn't take glee in another man's demise. I don't fault people who celebrated. I understand their feelings. As for my own reaction, I can honestly say that I was very, very relieved. What was your reaction when you heard the news??

    Come on, this guy's been dead for over a decade.
  • cate Bill 2012/05/06 02:57:56
    A decade?
  • Bill cate 2012/05/06 03:08:50
    Yeah, that's ten years.
  • cate Bill 2012/05/06 13:12:54
    Yes. A decade is ten years. But your decade is nine years light. Osama Bin Laden was assassinated on May 2, 2011.

    Oh yeah. The guy who was widely reported in the media years ago as being extremely ill and on kidney dialysis. And somehow managed to live ten more years. (I think he colored his hair and beard a lot as well, because if you look at some of the pictures released, he magically seemed to reverse age.)
    The most wanted terrorist in the world. The man NOBODY was able to find even though he had a $25,000,000.000 bounty on his head. And when we finally do find him we throw his body into the ocean within hours. And refuse to release the death photos.

    I was elated, but concerned that reprisals would come to innocent people. Wish we could round them all up and alleviate them

    Drinks on me!
  • JanHopkins 2012/05/03 02:42:31
    I wondered why he wasn't arrested like Saddam. I wondered whose fool idea the burial at sea was. Sorry folks, it just sounds kind of hinkey to me.

    It would have been better if he could have been taken alive but I suppose that wasn't practical!

    Was happy because it was kind of a retribution after so many years he took away too many lives and his life did not pay it back but it was a national relief.

    Liars like Obama have trouble breaking the Habit

    My initial reaction was mainly disbelief, than a small measure of happiness tempered by the fact that it still probably wouldn't make everything better.
  • randy 2012/05/03 01:18:44
    Possible hoax.
  • Bali 2012/05/03 01:17:48
    very convenient

    I was very relieved as well, and glad it was over.

    I cannot celebrate death.
