What is there to Celebrate?

 Today, Americans are celebrating the killing of Osama bin Laden. Congratulations, it only took ten years. But besides one man's death, what is there to celebrate?


The World Trade Centers are still gone.

The 2977 people who died due to the September 11th attacks are still dead. (Of which none were actually killed by Osama bin Laden. Should we hold Bush responsible for all the innocent people killed in Irag and Afganistan?)

The terror alert for most countries ironically went up and not down due Osama'a death and fear of retaliation. (good job)

America still has troops in Iraq and Afganistan with no end in sight.

America's image around the world is still damaged. (Perhaps more killing will help improve the image.)

The tension between the West and the Muslim world stills exist.

Americans will still be subjected to humiliating airport searches because of the fear of more terrorism.(I am waiting for the first person to say, "Come on, I don't need a full body scan, Osama is dead.")

People will still be detained indefinitely without a lawyer or a trial.

Homes will still be searched without a warrant.


In short, Americans are less free, still under threat, and living in a state of fear. That is "Mission Accomplished" for Osama bin Laden. It doesn't count killing the alleged leader of a group when that group has acheived its goals. So the killing of Osama does nothing but satisfy some primal need for revenge. How strange, coming from a country that proclaims itself to be "Christian." So Americans will enjoy this moment. And they should today, because tomorrow they will be in same shit they were in when Osama bin Laden was alive.
