I work with a guy who said, the following day, that he wished Bin Laden was still alive because he considered him an underdog and he always roots for the underdog.
It was at this moment that I lost all respect for my colleague. You all know I'm the biggest liberal in the house, but I still wanted Bin Laden dead, and I'm happy as a clam that his brains leaked out of his assholish little head. Let's get the rest of those mothereffers now, and then bring everyone home and cut off the middle east forever.
Wow, what a jackass. I mean, I'm not as celebratory as most because I struggle celebrating the death of another human being no matter how evil he is (or was). But, how can anybody wish it didn't happen? Even though his ideology isn't dead with him, this is a major victory for the US. He deserves to get the shit kicked out of him.
Also, @military members ITT, as the others have said, very much appreciate all that you do for us.
