The Assassination of Osama bin Laden

My Reaction:

What was done to New York City on September 11 was a wicked act of war, no doubt or hesitation on that fact. We needed to respond, those responsible needed to be brought to justice, and we as a nation were entitled to enact that justice. But to gleefully celebrate the assassination of an enemy (let alone as enemy it took us, um, ten years to find? Americans are so quick to claim triumphant victory where others would quietly assert only completion of a well due task), even a dangerous enemy, is inappropriate.

This is a solemn event. A serious event. It should be taken seriously, and considered in full context of this war; past, present and future. I am a bit ashamed of my country’men for cheering Osama bin Laden’s death as though it were a football game. This is not entertainment. We didn’t win anything. We solved only one problem among many, and the larger issue is still yet to be brought to any kind of conclusion. The death of one evil person does not create nor herald justice. Reform and peace are the only healers of war.

Art and Peace,
