That's how long since 9/11 according to some woman on the news. I don't know if that is today or yesterday. Either way, today or I guess yesterday, is the day the world will remember as the day Osama bin Laden was killed.
I am going to be honest...say things that may seem...unpatriotic. But someone once said, "Love your country always, love your government when they deserve it" or something to that effect.
Saddam got a trial. Hitler would have. They say he refused to surrender and had to be killed. I really hope that is true. Bad guy or not...a trial would have been nice.
I am quite honestly a little put off by the absolute joy and mirth being exhibited by people over someone's DEATH. I know what he did. I will never forget that day. He did a horrid, horrid thing.
But I also believe in democracy, and I don't think death resolves death. They show what is being called "the kill site" on the news. Covered in blood. They confirmed his identity with DNA saved from his sister's BRAIN. She died here in the USA and they "took custody of her brain" for just this purpose. What, a vial of blood wouldn't do?
I just don't kow. Perhaps the extremists who planned 9/11 celebrated at the death of all the people in the towers; perhaps terrorists cheer every time they blow people up.
But if we are cheering about death ourselves, what does that make us?
