    My opinion about bin Laden's death


    I think bin Laden's death has a great effect on Al Qaeda group, because he was managed most of terrorist attacks throughout the world, and he was a rich Saudian man which helped him to achieve most of thier goals, but now he's gone and his followers are not be able to do as they did before, and for me I think there is no need to celebrate because this is far from the real human nature to celebrate when someone dead, but we can be happy, because there were lots of brutal leaders in history that when they were gone, it made many people happy, for instance we had Saddam Hussein as a leader, he was a dectator in Iraq, when he was executed, most people of Iraq were happy about that, in a way that many people in north of Iraq, even in some other parts of southern of Iraq were celebrating because of his death, so we can see the same situation after the death of bin Laden. I'm not with celebrating after the death of a human being, but I say we should be happy for the death of someone who killed thousands of innocent people around the world, but I'm not with celebration.


    I've asked many of my friends about their reaction to the news, and most of them were happy when they heard the news about bin Laden's death, and they said that the death of bin Laden means the start of the end of terrorism in the world because he was the greatest and most brutal terrorist leader, and there were some of them couldn't belive it, and till now they still don't belive that he's actually dead.


    I'm telling president Obama, that you've done a great job, you've cut off the head of the snake, but this doesn't mean the terrorism is over, but you took the greatest steps to end terrorism around the world, and I hope this will be the starting point to end terrorism and this will be an awackening for all of those terrorists who think about killing innocent people without exception.
