    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.

      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.

      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.

              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?

                15 or 20% of 1.6 billion is considerably more than a few hundred, its a good few million.
                If that were the case you'd be toast.

    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.

        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.
