Bring it on... The world has been shown that the U.S. doesn't take schit from anyone and we do whatever is necessary to exact "justice".

I gotta tell ya... If they'd have gotten him 7-9 years ago, I'd have been more into celebrating. Now, my feelings are more along the line of "They killed another effin' piece of scum, no biggie..." OBL wasn't really involved with any organizational stuff for a long time. He had become basically a "figurehead" for terrorists, so I doubt taking him out will slow down the terrorists much at all. Even for the U.S. it was mainly a "symbolic" victory. Granted, an important one, but symbolic none the less. I support the troops... Bring them home. ALL of them. Let the rest of the world provide for their own safety without using the blood of our heros to do it. Bring them home and give them the money we send to every tin-pot dictator around the world for "foreign aid". ALL of the "foreign aid" money. And while we're at it, give them every penny that we give to the UN... and turn that building in NYC into a giant VA hospital along with free housing for vets and their families... while kicking out all those SOB "diplomats" in that cesspool of an organization! And let's go back to the old "spoils of war" criteria... they made the mistake of effin with us... take (not buy, not "negotiate for", not "trade for") TAKE every damn drop of oil they have and start shipping it home... Use it to support our hurting economy and take part of the windfall for the vets... and the politicos in Washingtoon shouldn't get one damn cent of it! In fact, cut all of their staff and salaries to NOTHING. They aren't doing any of us any good anyway, so let them go back to the original concept of "citizen legislators". Better yet, just fire them all! Dump the whole "legislator" ruling class! We don't need them to make rules for how we live! They mess it up every damn time anyway... and that has nothing to do with left/right-wing... they're BOTH screwing with us! (Should I get off this soapbox? Anyone got a 40' ladder to put up here so I can climb down?
) Gotta go take some BP meds!
At least it felt good while it lasted... kinda like... nevermind...
