We are now celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden. The man stained with the blood of 3000 lives. Justice has finally been served people may say.
Do you think Osama's death will only incite more hatred and generally increase the risk of more terrorism instead of decrease it?

He was just a mere puppet I believe. We still haven't found the Master who controls the strings

People are so easily distracted. Just a few days ago Al Queda warned a Nuclear Hellstorm if Bin Laden was killed - this obviously means the Americans knew where he was hiding, so why wait a while?

Shouts "conspiracy" everywhere.

I agree, although I think if he had been arrested it would bring even more terrorism than it will now that he is dead.

Just my 2 cents

^^ However, don't you think it's likely they're bluffing? They may be able to hide a bomb in a public bin, but I don't believe they could have a secret nuclear weapon without the authorities knowing, do you?

And I believe it's perfectly acceptable to celebrate. He killed thousands of people, affected millions of people and was evil. The fact that justice has been served makes today a happy day. It's natural to celebrate. We don't know if there will be any consequences, but nonetheless we should celebrate. We should show the terrorists that we're united against their evil acts.

Copied from elsewhere.

That's possibly right though. Although no one can guarantee more terrorist attacks, I'm highly expecting it. It would seem sensible that Al Qaeda had an unnamed leader as soon as the US became aware of Bin Laden, so the group could keep going if he were found.

That said, we should celebrate that at least one of the main figures has been found - it seems like a part-justification for all that time and money we've spent in Afghanistan. But I agree, there will most likely be more terrorist attacks, at least in the USA.

True. Osama was in isolation, he had ability to control and plan terrorist attacks directly from where he was. He is an idol to many small terrorist groups that actually do the majority of terrorist attacks these days, and I fear that the loss of their idol will surely lead to some attacks in retaltiation.

I can't help but feel a bit happy that someone who organised the deaths of 1000s of people is dead.. but yeah this is going to kick up a big **** storm.. now what is going to happen? With no leader the Al Queda will just get out of control and do a lot of stupid things...

WHY did they just shoot him? What were they even doing in Pakistan? Surely it would have been much better to catch the ****er.. now he'll just be a martyr. And they've already burried him at sea? It doesn't make a lot of sense.

And now I'm worrying about the London Olympics.. 1000s from all over the world, would be an attack against the West for sure..

I live in the United States, and the first thought that popped up in my head was this one. I wouldn't be shocked if they took their revenge out on us, although now the thought worries me...

What are we celebrating about? The douche bag is dead.
Are we supposed to cower in fear because the terrorists threaten us? As if they haven't been trying to attack us for the last 20 years?
Let them try and take revenge, because revenge is motivated by anger and when you are angry you make mistakes, and when they make these mistakes we will nail the *******s.

Haven't even thought about whether it will encourage or discourage more terrorism. All I could think about was the poor american reporter on sky news who kept saying Obama instead of Osama when talking about his death. How embarrassing!

I think it probably will be seen as justice for the families who lost relatives and friends in Al-Qaeda attacks more than anything. I agree, his death won't stop terrorism in its tracks, but I think it's probably weakened Al Qaeda in the sense that the most elusive man in the world has been tracked down. He was also their leader, they'll be grieving for him, so the main worry is vengeance attacks by grieving Al-Qaeda members.

Well he was a major figurehead / commander, it was partly revenge, partly an attempt to destroy the command and control structure. It's mainly a way of buying time and making terrorists less organised, the actual cause of terrorism isn't going to go away in our lifetimes.

Not sure that it will incite more terrorism - that implies that they've not really been trying to commit any terrorist acts before now, which we know isn't true. Not to say that there won't be any more terrorist attacks, of course they will it's only 1 man they've killed. But will there be 'more' as in some nuclear attack or whatever other tripe the Daily Mail is prophesying, no I don't think so. At least I hope not.

No one is stupid enough to suggest that this will end terrorism. It's serves the purpose of sending out a strong message and is a key accomplishment in the fight against terror. The US has had every intention of killing him and now they've finally achieved it, and in doing so have instilled confidence in the people.
