Osama bin Laden: All Over but the Shouting

First, congratulations to our intrepid intelligence community and armed forces for never giving up and never giving in on the search for Osama bin Laden since 9 yrs and almost 8 months ago.

Second, congratulations to our President, Barack H. Obama, for doing something that neither Clinton nor Bush(despite actually trying) was able to do: terminate Osama bin Laden.

Finally, there is this:

A key message has been beamed to every corner of the earth, sure to reach anyone who has ever committed terror against Americans, who seeks to do so again, or who is contemplating the act: No matter who you are, no matter how many followers you have, no matter how smart or careful you think you are, our guys can find you. It’s just a matter of time. If you kill our countrymen, they will look, and they will look, and they will look and they will never quit and we will never forget. You will die in prison at Gitmo or you will die quickly from a covert-ops team’s bullets. But one way or another, you will pay the price for harming our people.

I don’t relish death any more than the next guy.  BUT I do relish justice.  And justice was served… by the point of the spear and two rounds of copper-jacketed lead.  The size of said rounds (9mm or .45 cal) cannot be confirmed.

Now that the trash has been taken out, can we deal with the national debt, please?  Our entitlement burden needs a double-tap or we will ALL die a slow death.
