re: Breaking News! bin Laden is Dead!
I hear ya, Gaia.
Thanks for your posts.
Jon Stewart said the following on his show:
"The face of the Arab world in America's eyes for too long has been bin Laden, and now it is not. Now the face is only the young people in Egypt and Tunisia and all the Middle Eastern countries around the world where freedom rises up. Al Qaeda's opportunity is gone."
Please speak for yourself, Jon.
The face of the Arab world in America's eyes for too long has not been bin Laden, and because you say that now the face of the Arab world in America's eyes are the young people in Egypt, etc., where freedom rises up doesn't make that so either.
Do you seriously believe that because bin laden is dead, Al Qaeda's opportunity is gone?
That would be equivalent to saying that if Obama were assassinated, our entire government would cease to exist.
The taking out of a leader does not dismantle the "organization."
