Osama bin Laden is dead.
News reports are coming in that Osama bin Laden has been killed. Thousands cheer in the streets. I, however, am saving my celebration for when our soldiers come home and our freedoms are restored. Not a day before. Am I a buzzkill? Maybe. But I fear this development will lend legitimacy to the tentacles and power of the American military-industrial complex. I fear that the president-worship will continue, and stronger. And I fear the people will look to the government to solve their problems. I hope I am wrong.
UPDATE: Why did they kill him? Why didn’t they arrest him to ask questions? Why is no one asking questions? We’re too busy chanting “USA! USA!”
