"It?s troubling seeing some British news blogs by its readers saying thing like "this isn't the way to bring someone to justice"...."
i said only this morning that had this op been carried out by UKSF in the same manner, and Bin Laden was killed during the fire fight as happened, then you can bet that US reports would be up in arms over how the Brits failed to bring him in alive, and that it was a failure to carry out justice for the victims of 9/11.
However his death is indeed welcomed, but we must ask ourselves, was it worth all of this? In the grand scheme it changes very little. If anything it could work equally as well in the radicals favour. This could bring cause for the unity that they have been looking for and the British and US government have already issued calls for vigilance in anticipation of retaliatory attacks. news reports have already been quick to mention how now several groups seem to wish to make moves in order to form a more joint effort against the coalition and carry out domestic attacks on western soil whereas previously this had been a more independent endeavour. With Laden dead however Al Qaeda will not end, someone else will take his place and radical Islam will unfortunately continue to rot this planet.
However i do see this as coming as a welcome morale boost for coalition forces, and in some ways it will bring a degree of closure to the victims of the terror attack both in New York on 9/11 and in the London bombings on 7/7.
by the way "why Muslims in that country do whatever they want." thoroughly agree with this, the UK governments PC emphasis drive and other such left wing social ideas are crippling the nation, it is being handed over to radical minority groups for the sake of their civil liberties even when it is direct contradiction of the well being and interests of the moderate majority.
