In case you missed it, Osama bin Laden was killed on 1 May 2011 (which is, incidentally, International Labour Day).

I agree that it is a good thing to have him out of the picture, and that it is unlikely that he could've been removed from the world scene any other way. I believe the killing was justified, appropriate, and worth doing. That said, I am uncomfortable with celebrating his death. Collapse )
