    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     loriluluburd says, 'I just feel that the general public doesn't realize what this could mean to our military. They want to think that this might end the war, but what I'm hearing and feeling from other military wives is fear. Fear that this will escalate the evil and cause more harm to our men and women in uniform.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Being a military wife, I see this in a totally different light.  I am glad bin Laden is dead....to bring closure to so many families.....BUT I feel this will stir up even more hate and anger among the enemy and our soldiers will bear the brunt of it.  The general public is out dancing in the streets but military families are scared of the backlash from this.  Osama had not been making the calls for years, in reference to military action.....so there are others in power calling the shots.  They will continue to call the shots and fearfully, I believe will "turn up the heat" in battle overseas and on US soil.  This is a scary time.  I wouldn't be surprised if this turned in to a WW III
