America appreciates the Navy Seals.

This week, the world breathed a sigh of relief after hearing about Osama Bin Laden's death.

This was caused, first, by the announcement from the White House delivered in person by President Barack Obama of the United States of America, leader of the Western World. 

He did so amid cheers from Washington D.C. to New York City to Boston, and in fact, throughout the whole country.

It felt as if a heavy burden has been lifted off the shoulders of men, women and children, not just in America, but in all parts of the world. 

From England to Japan; and from Venezuela to Argentina, there was a sudden calm that overtook people, who were worried in divers ways, about all the problems facing themselves personally and their individual countries in general. 

It was as if there was one single night leading into its following day for all peoples, alike; and that they had woken up from a long nightmare that they thought would never end; however, when it did, the news was good.

Just yesterday, the Al Qaeda leadership, followed by the Taliban in Afghanistan confirmed the fact that Bin Laden, the mastermind of the attacks on the Pentagon and The World Trade Center in the United States, has died from his wounds inflicted on him by a squadron of U.S. Navy Seals in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where he was hiding.

Even before their admission, it was thought that there would be violent demonstrations, particularly, in the Arab world, by his followers; and they (demonstrations) would continue throughout and into many weeks ahead; with sympathizers committing mayhem in response to his killing. 

Yet, lo and behold, there were only a few gatherings, here and there, which were even orderly than anything resembling a bunch of raucous assemblies of Al Qaeda men and women mourning their fallen leader.

Americans handled the jubilation pretty well, with the laying of a wreath at Ground Zero by President Obama; and people going about their normal lives as usual after that. The atmosphere was peaceful, and even the weather was generally well behaved.

The troops that had returned from their mission were greeted by their president and Commander-In-Chief on behalf of the nation; honoring them by saying it (raid) was a "Job well done."

Let us hope that America's enemies have learned their lesson; and that they were bound to suffer defeat, over and over again, if they did not mend their ways.
