I don't think we really need to be worried about revenge attacks because:

1) The only people who are going to consider Osama a martyr are the crazies who already were members/ supporters of Al-Qaeda. I doubt their base of support is going to increase because of this, so they're not going to gain any more resources.

2) Al-Qaeda have presumably been trying their best against the US all along (why wouldn't they?), and mostly just failing. Without some extra resources, they're not suddenly going to be capable of pulling off a serious revenge attack, no matter how much they want to.

Very interesting news indeed.
Just waiting for pictures to confirm this.

Not too sure about the ones available on the internet at this current time.

The US knew where he was hiding all this time. You're tellin me it took 10 years to track him down when they've got some of the most advanced tracking systems in the world?
They killed him now for a specific reason...
I'm not sure I agree with that. The US would have loved nothing better than to kill him as soon as possible.
The spotlight will soon be turned onto the Pakistanis, it's pretty obvious that there's been some inside assistance, and I expect some heads will soon be rolling.

So he was hiding right under their noses

Enlighten me. An arbitrary definition of terrorism doesn't matter, the concept does.
the kind of bloke who arbitrates the murder of hundreds of people by having planes flown into thier offices would pretty much suffice i imagine.

The picture I just posted was just removed from the website of a german newspaper, so I doubt it's a fake. (It was removed because it was deemed too offensive/graphic, atleast that's their excuse for removing it

I still think it should have been the SAS what got him.

It's a good development, but before anyone gets complacent, someone else is likely to take his place as the leader of Al Quaeda. What's also interesting is that he was killed in Pakistan, so does that mean the war on terror in Afghanistan is now over?

Haha, okay, sure.

I have no intention of getting into internet arguments with people who fanatically hate America, seriously, I have way better things to do with my life. Calling me "retarded" won't goad me into one.

Let's all just come together in a state of mutual satisfaction about Bin Laden being dead.

Sure, let's do that.

2 wars, a million dead, trillions of dollars spent. Totally worth it for the death of one man. Justice has been done, no more terrorism!
