they finally got Osama! 10 years after 9/11, 15 years after he was put on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, and 30 years after he helped finance the mujahideen’s rebellion against incumbent Soviet forces in Afghanistan. pardon me, if I don’t get overly excited about news of his death. don’t get me wrong, it’s an important piece of news.
the American public can not get so wrapped up to think that this will solve any of the numerous domestic issues we are currently facing. shit economy, shit housing market, rising unemployment, gas prices that will eventually hit $5/gallon by Memorial Day. the Middle East ain’t exactly the epitome of stability at the moment either *cough* Libya *cough*
yes, Americans should be happy that bin Laden is gone, but this doesn’t mean that Obama and Congress don’t have more work to do. maybe bin Laden’s death gives him another 4 years to try and fix shit we’ve been dealing with since Reagan and his bullshit trickle-down economics…with liberty and socialism for all!
I’m not one of those conspiracy theorists who claim that the US government had intimate knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, before they happened. I just think Americans shouldn’t be so quick to believe everything they are told. it’s ok to question authority when your personal rights and freedoms are at stake. I’ll get off my soapbox now…
