After bin Laden: What's next?
bin Laden's death, and the war on terrorism
I couldn't help but feel relief and gladness when hearing the news that Osama bin Laden was dead. My husband is a Navy vet who served several terms in the middle east since 9/11. As amazing as it is that justice has been served for the 3000+ lives lost on 9/11, and the soldiers lives who have been lost in this war, we need to realize that this war isn't over. al Qaeda always has people ready to take their leaders place, and bin Ladens right hand man is still somewhere in hiding. We have to continue this fight, to wipe out terrorism, or else we are making an very unsafe U.S.A for our children.
On another note. Pakistan should not be given ANY more funds from the U.S. until we can be given solid proof that they did not aid bin Laden in aquiring his hiding place etc. How can we be sure some of the U.S. funds given to fight terrorism didn't go towards buying bin Laden his million dollar compound, and all the protection to go with it?
