Osama bin Laded is dead. The most wanted person in the world is no more. He was a terrorist. He was a villain to America, though many people think that he was the political creation of America.
Is Trrorism Ended by the death of Bin Laden?
No, bet theres retaliation and they may come after obama.
As long as there are Westerners there will always be terrorism. But it was a big psychological boost to America and a blow mentall to Al Queda because Bin Laden is the face of terrorism.
of course not.
Terrorism is a tactic. One person doesn't own a tactic.
People are who they choose to be and no one creates them.
It helps, at least one more terrorist is gone
There are 1.6 billion muslims and of those anywhere from 15 to 20% are extremists that believe in the rise of a new Islamic caliphate and are willing to bring it about by violent means following in the footsteps of Bin Laden. No terrorism hasn't been defeated.
Prison, vacation, or an extended sabatical from Hubpages???? Where you been?
Let's make it your home work assignment I have better things to do.
Like inventing totally bogus statistics.
There are a number of polls that support my statement you can look for them or not but surely you don't believe Bin Laden is only one of perhaps a few hundred extremists do you?
Unfortunately the real war will begin. People are foolish to think that one man is responsible and only one. There will be a price to pay....
What price will that be? Is it terrorism, or banal and persistent threatening? I know what the price will be for most of us, more security at the airports, less freedom and liberty for ordinary citizens. But this is less related to real terrorism and more to do with getting the type of government we deserve. Sadly, terrorism continues within, and beyond our borders.
''Sadly, terrorism continues within, and beyond our borders.''
Let's not forget where OBL came from and how he got started. During the Russian/ Afghanistan war, the US supported the rebels to take over the country. Result was a takeover of the country by the Taliban.
The US provided American Intelligence with an opportunity to acquire any new Russian military hardware that could be used in Afghanistan. Mujhadeen fighters were given access to American surface-to-air missiles - though not through direct sales by America. The era of Osama Bin Laden was started.
By the end of the 1980's, the Mujahdeen was at war with itself in Afghanistan with hard line Taliban fighters taking a stronger grip over the whole nation and imposing very strict Muslim law on the Afghanistan population.

Looking back on history one must wonder if the US supporting the rebels in Libya, a new born leader may one day be attacking America. Our government under the leadership of President Obama, supported by a few members of Congress, have spent millions to overthrow the Gaddafi lead government.
I agree with you. because we know somewhere in our hearts, because of the growing fear and hatred between nations, a nuclear device will be set off, and were going to see devastatiing great famine all across the world..These are dangerous times for this world..We are seeing devastating earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, fires..as our world is being ripped apart by ancient hatreds.
If Osama's son is correct, things may get worse rather than better. His opinion is that compared to Osama, the leadership that will replace him is even worse.
I am hoping America can use the info they get off computers they captured to wipe them out as well.
Pakistan is now arresting people who had worked in the compound.

Okay, I know this probably isn't that big of a deal to some folks, but i thought i'd bring it up anyway. On the radio the other day, I was listening to two political analysts, and one of them still insists on labeling O'Bama a moron for how he's handled things from day one of his...

With all of the talk about GITMO regarding "Illegal Detention" and "Enhanced Interigation" techniques, I was wondering what were the thoughts of those who believed that all of the Detainees should have a trial in the US. Specifically, should Bin Laden have been brought back to...

This fascinates me. The bungler in chief has changes his story a few times about Bin Laden's well deserved death. One might think they could just watch the videos from the assault team along with the helicopter-mounted cameras, develop a timeline, create some PowerPoint slides and tell the people...

John Paul Leonard stated :"At the end of August 2007, with Bush beating the drums for war on Iran, a highly unusual thing occurred: a "rogue B-52" laden with six nuclear missiles flew from Minot, North Dakota to Barksdale AFB, the staging ground for bombing runs to the Middle East....
