You know have have to chime in on this.
Ok, so it’s already old news.
But, Osama Bin Laden was killed by elite American forces at his compound in Pakistan Sunday.
Although it saddens me that I find joy in the demise of anyone, some people just have to go. And, frankly, I’m glad President Obama took a stand, took a risk, and took him out.
But, America has always had a bogey man.
The American Revolution 1776 – King George III.
The War of 1812 – King George III.
The Mexican War – Santa Anna.
The Civil War – The South had Lincoln,
the North Jeff Davis.
The Spanish American War – Patricio Montojo (he commanded the Spanish Navy, and we kicked his butt at the Battle of Manilla Bay).
World War I – Kaiser Wilhelm.
World War II – Hitler, Mussolini,
Korea – Kim Il sung.
Viet Nam – Ho Chi Minh,
Pol Pot, and a cast of thousands.
The Cold War – Khrushchev and Castro
Iraq I – Sadaam Hussein
The War on Terror – Bin Laden.
As much as it thrilled me to see Americans in the streets shouting “USA, USA, USA” for something other than a ball game of the olympics, it worries me that we may falsly think we are safe. So, America, who’s the next bogey man? You know he’s out there, and we’re not safe yet. There are nations and peoples who hate us for our freedom. Our freedom and our freedoms remind them that they, by choice or by chance are not free.
