Thank you, President Obama

“I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.”

—Mark Twain

The news last night of the death of Osama Bin Laden had been a long time coming. And thanks to our brave soldiers and the decision made by our President, the mastermind of 9/11 is no longer on this earth. For almost ten years, the American people have waited for justice to prevail and for this vile animal to finally pay for his actions on 9/11. Thousands of Americans died because of this diabolical man’s insanity and hatred, and though I prefer to not wish death on anyone, there are a few evil individuals in this world who have lived too many years on this earth and should say their final farewells.

I want to thank President Obama for continuing and persevering in the hunt for Bin Laden, and for continuing along the same path first forged by his predecessor, President Bush. I want to thank the president for sparing this operation from the ineptitude and indecision that has plagued his foreign policy these past 27 months. I am grateful that while our president pandered to the leftists during his campaign, once in office he resisted the temptation to capture Bin Laden with an army of unicorns riding on rainbows and used Navy SEALS carrying assault weapons instead.

In the end, it is unflinching perseverance that brought about the demise of one of the world’s most evil men. Throughout these nine and a half years of waiting for justice, the thought of ending the hunt for Bin Laden never crossed anyone’s mind. Justice does not have an expiration date, and justice served days, years, or decades late is still justice well served.

Thank you President Obama for not bowing to the pressure from those who do not really care about America or justice, and for being an intransigent hardliner in the hunt for Bin Laden.

  1. Ditto, ditto to everything. I’m glad he’s dead!

    At last the families of all those who died on September 11, can now have closure. More to the point, Americans can now “take to the streets” and celebrate this victory without being critized by the Media, the way Cuban-American’s insensitivity was critized for taking to the streets to celebrate when castro took ill in 2006.

    Well, you know how it is Firefly, we Cuban-Americans are 2nd class citizens [read this as “little brown people” in their eyes]. We have no right to closure and no right to justice. What does it matter that fidel has throughout his dictatorship killed several times more people than those that died in 9/11?

    You see, to them Cuba was a third-world hellhole–that simply was not worth it– and we’re nothing more than spoiled brats who have the nerve to lobby for our rights. We should know our place and that means, sitting back quietly as fidel continues to destroy our country [that in their eyes, was not worth saving]. The social experiment that was Cuba is far more important and so is all of the investment that they’ve wasted on that fleabag dictator.

    How dare we show glee at his death?

    By the way, let’s see if Juanita Castro makes at public statement criticizing those Americans that are celebrating Osama’s death, or lets see if Rep. Charles Rangel of NY does so. I’ll wait for the NYT’s editorial too. After all, they were all quick to jump at the Cuban Americans.

  3. Rayarena, if the Castro brothers dropped dead next week, and exiles take to the streets in celebration, you will see the exact same critical response as in 2006. This in spite of the current popularity of removing “dictators.”

  4. My brother Michael Diaz-Piedra was wounded in the 9/11 attacks and ultimately died from his wounds
    during one of the operations to save his leg. All along during that time I thought he was one of the lucky ones because he had survived the attacks. And then he died.

    I don’t know what I feel about bin Laden’s execution. Glad? Yes. Happy?, no, won’t bring my brother back. My worry is that bin Laden is just the tip of the iceberg and what is below is even more dangerous and we will need to deal with it for a very long time. Closure? No.

    kind regards

  5. Rambito:

    Our hearts and prayers go out to you and your family for the loss of your brother because of these crazed animals. Killing bin Laden will not bring your brother back, or the thousands that died because of these acts, and few will find closure with his demise. However, it did bring closure to bin Laden’s life and his existence on this earth in the most extreme and permanent way, and that is not a bad thing.

    I’m afraid you are right, OBL is just the tip of the iceberg. And until this country gets serious and realistic about dealing with these people who act like rabid animals, they will continue to attack us.

  6. No thanks to Obama, folks. read what went on behind the scenes here:

    If this report is true, (and I believe it is) our so-called Commander-in-Chief had his hand forced and even tried to countermand it! Obama is now using it for political advantage, but I don’t believe it will help his poll numbers much after all.
