    THE symbolism of the long chase to get him will also send many others to his cause. I hope that our side goes after the others that are running loose yet and gets them all. My grandson was in the group that had Sadam trapped when they caught him and is now in Afganistan so maybe he has two that he was in on but who evers sons and daughters were in on this, great job and we're proud of all of you. If we hadn't have gotten him it all would just drag on as it seemed to be doing. Yes there will be more hard and dangerous fighting but the more of the leader ship we take out or capture the more the rest of their forces will be loseing the control of the troops and the thinner the leadership becomes for them to rely on. we hope. There has to be more to keep pushing them down. and not letting them bounce back.

    I suppose my initial wording was poorly chosen. It is significant, I just don't see a reason to celebrate knowing what's most likely to follow.

    I don't expect my viewpoint to be popular, I just can't feel this joy that everyone else seems to have about it.

    One celebrates a birthday, , births, wedding, graduation or other similar milestone of our own perceived signifigance. Later those celebrations may be found to be short lived as aging, death of a loved one or inability to get a job may sour the theme. Celebrate when you can. Find one thing to rejoice about each day. There are not nearly enough days.

    No significance? Lenin was one of the most powerful figures in the soviet union while he was sitting in his coffin. Like it or not symbols matter. And when you're dealing with illiterates whose only education is learning the Koran by rote, in a language they don't even speak, it matters even more. It's a blow to them. A really big blow. Combined with some of the "democratic uprisings" (remember kids democracy doesn't mean freedom!), it sure as hell pulls another stick out of the Jenga pile.

    I believe you and I thank you! What you saw, I can rest assured was worse than what I have experienced. However, to attack me for my post and pointing out that I am a fool, without knowing me is quite interesting. With that, my comments will only be directed to the event, not to any particular person. I guess vets have varrying opinions as well!

    I agree, now bring them home from Afghanistan. Let them bring them bring the fight here again. We should ALL be in this fight, not just the military. Killing this prick is not going to prolong extremism. They have been here since before I was born and will be here after we die.

    Larry, I don't need to see them. When I see you next, the beer will be on me. Time for a Kitsap get together. We can talk about today's events and raise a glass. Ron, you in? Others?

    We'll all remember this as the day we ended terrorism along with the war in Iraq!

    bin laden was probably a bead fisherman. Im still trying to come up with ways in which the republicans can denounce this act as a poor choice beings as this is what they were trying to accomplish in bush administration. If the democrats in office had something to do with this, im sure its now a negative.
