    Today US forces killed probably their and world's biggest enemy Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. It took 10 years but finally its victory against the world's most wanted terror man. But do you think the death of Osama will spark anger among terrorist organizations and this will lead to dangerous attacks at various parts of the world in days to come?

      It may, but the Navy Seals can go after them too.

      I think we may have another Tupac Shakur deal if we don't watch it. hmm

    Oh yes.  It doesn't take much to set off hid radical supporters.  I'd ante up with my last buck that Osama has specifically trained his followers as to what havoc to create in response to his capture or death.  Frankly, I'm scared.

    If you were planning on blowing yourself up, you would do so regardless of if bin Laden is alive or dead.

    he was more dangerous alive, then somewhere in the bottom of the ocean

      The so called photo of him is already being called into doubt as being photoshopped.

      Why on earth did the U.S. dump his body at sea before experts could 100% verify it?  It should have been put in a room somewhere and allow the press and medical experts from all around the world to come and verify it.  Now he is like a ghost, maybe dead, maybe not.   This risk of terrorism is probably worse now.

        I wouldnt have dumped his body that quickly, knowing that the conspiracy theorists would jump all over that. 

        I think there is allow of photographing casualties of was, but an exception should have been made in this case

      Yes, he was dangerous, but he is one in a sea of crazy, so we need to keep this in perspective here.  I'm with Minuspc, scared to death.

    I thought it would of been better to take him alive, but I guess they did not need information from him. It's hard to believe he is finally dead.

    I was in 5th grade when 9-11 happened -- 10 years ago...

    Possible attacks on the US could happen, who knows...The terrorists will be pi$$ed..

      I'm sure it would have been quite difficult to take him alive, from the report, it said he was resisting force. Those men are so brave, we can't even imagine the danger.
      I'm pretty sure the identities of those forces involved will be kept top secret. I am friends with a retired Special Ops Navy SEAL who said they can't talk about their past specific military engagements.

        Yes, it would be cool if we knew the men who took him out. Of course, this would put them in danger. A target would be put on their back.

    I am not so sure that he IS dead.
    Quick disposal of the body looks strange to say the least.
    What was the rush? Unless there is someting to hide.

      I was sure the conspiracy theory was on the way.  As a Navy breat, Navy wife, from a whole family of Navy folks, including 2 Navy Seals; believe me, if the Seals come to get you you are got.

      I've heard one souldn't say anything abou the dead unless it's good---Osama is dead, GOOD!!!

    Did you see this man's tweets of the raid? A man living in Abbottabad?  http://twitter.com/#!/ReallyVirtual  I think you will able to see it, even if not signed in to Twitter, but maybe not, I couldn't see it until I signed in. Scroll down to about 19 hours ago, where he tweets about a helicopter hovering above as a rare event.

    I believe they killed somebody, may be even relative of Osama(DNA), but who knows the truth? Not media for sure. They caught somebody and killed like a mad dog, but that does not prove anything.
