    Do you believe that Osama bin Laden's death signifies the end of terrorism in America?

    Osama has been grooming all kinds of group over the decade, now that he's gone, what lies ahead for America? Will another group evolve sharing Obama's believe?

    I think it's too much to expect that this will mean the END of terrorism in America. I do hope (and believe) that it might possibly be the BEGINNING of the end... or might LEAD to the end, eventually.

    Absolutely not there other terrorist cells still out there Osama Bin Laden was not the only one sure he was a ringleader but don't you think there is another just waiting to take his place. It may have actually raised our terrorism threat seems how his followers are probably pretty upset with us. But I must say I'm very glad to see him gone thats one less mind that they have to come up with ideas and plans to accomplish a terroristic action against us.

    According to Benazir Bhutto (when she was alive) Osama bin Laden was assassinated several years ago. She said so when interviewed by David Frost on the BBC. That comment was edited out of the program (you can watch it on UTube) - why? It was never mentioned on the news - why? There was never any official response to her statement - why?

    The primary purpose of 'the war on terror' is to take away YOUR liberties - it is being waged against YOU!

    The secondary purpose is to provide an excuse for military action in the Middle East. To build public support for an attack against Iran. They want those Iranian oilfields: that they lost in 1979, back.

    Expect two things:

    1) Further erosion of your rights as a citizen.

    2) A false flag operation (a staged terrorist attack) against targets in Europe or America with Iran or Syria (or maybe both) being implicated by our intelligence services.

    Our leaders are warning us that we shouldn't be complacent; that bin Laden's death is not the end of the terrorist threat.

    They're right about the threat.

    They're wrong about the identity of the terrorists.

    There will always be a radical islamist to take his place.  There are thousands waiting to be the next obama.

    Let's hope that's the end. Catching that guy cost us $2 Trillion, 5,000 American lives, our relations with Europe, our 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th amendments, Article II of the constitution, our empire, and two failed governements propped up by us. The question is, what happens next in the US? It sounds like everyone is convinced we should continue this war for perpetuity. Enjoy, tough guys. It is a law of history that war is an expensive undertaking.

    Never. United States should improve their foreign policy first. They should leave Iraq and Afghanistan first. They should not interfere other country.

    Osama Bin Laden is just one person who hates America.  Unfortunately, there are others and terrorism does not end with him.

    not even close. it might even cause more terrorism. his death is irrelevant, though it's a good thing he was killed.

    In the last 25 years we have had far more "home grown" acts of terrorism (Oklahoma City, school shootings) than external ones (Sept. 11th). All Osama did was put a face on terrorism that already existed. Acts of terror and the propagation of fear is the new way to wage war. Unfortunately, while his death might lessen the immediate danger, we are in no way genuinely safer than when he was alive.

    An open enemy is never the problem its the unseen ones who create havoc. No, I don't  think its over. I believe we have more trouble internally than externally.

    Look, Bin Laden was just a face that the American government needed for the terrorist monster. I was in Afghanistan 5 years ago and everyone knew that Osama was in Pakistan. Moreover, he never even took credit for the 9/11 attacks. Why? Because he didn't organize them; the Pakistani intelligence department did. Terrorism is just a made-up propoganda machine that keeps the populous under control. Most of you people are more than happy to give up your constitutional rights for some falsified sense of security. How do you think Hitler and Stalin came to power? This is the road that every democracy in history has taken before plunging into the darkness. Don't believe me, read any book on the fall of the Roman Empire. And just so everyone is aware, the Taliban hate America because we have killed over 4 million people during "police operations." This is what the CIA calls "blowback."
