As much as I am enjoying the death of Osama bin Laden, there is a lot of work yet to be done. I have congratulated the President for keeping one of his campaign promises (I think this is the only one) so it is time for him to move on as well.
Watching some of the news coverage makes me think that we are getting a little overcome with glee over a relatively minor event. Senator Barbara Mikulski (Idiot – MD) likened the feelings inspired by the death of bin Laden to the how she felt when World War II ended. Really?!? What a moron.
When American Naval intelligence got wind of an inspection tour of forward bases to be conducted by Admiral Yamamoto (the architect of the arrack on
Pearl Harbor) an attack was ordered by President Roosevelt. Long-range Army fighters intercepted the Japanese bomber carrying Yamamoto and shot it down on 18 April 1943. It was an important event to both sides, but it had little actual impact on the war. It wasn’t until August 15th 1945 that surrendered. This is the closest historical event to what happened last Sunday evening. Japan
I’m glad that bin Laden is dead. I’m happy that fish are feeding on his putrid remains. I’m happy that President Obama ordered the action. I am delighted that we have Navy SEALs and no one else does. However it ain’t over until the proverbial fat lady sings and she isn’t even warming up yet.
I hope that this incident informs our President how magnificent the American military really is.
God bless the
and success to the Marines (Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coasties). United States
