God’s Justice Be Done!

As you can imagine, the elimination of Osama bin Laden brought jubilation to the streets of Washington. The video clip below was the scene in front of the White House last night. It's only two blocks from my office, and parking nearby would not have been a problem for me. Alas, it was nearly midnight when I heard the news.

It should be noted that bin Laden was an ally of the United States when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, and he was supplied with guns and ammunition by us. Perhaps now we can see peace come to this land, and its people learn to stand up for themselves, rather than merely side with whomever is winning. But it is a lesson for us, first taught by our Founding Fathers, of the pitfalls that often accompany foreign entanglements.

Most of all, we hope that the troops can finally come home to their loved ones. God bless America. HOO-rah!

UPDATE: Iowahawk pays tribute to the President for “a mission made possible thanks to information extracted by methods he previously banned as ‘illegal torture.’” That, and it's "totally KEWL" to be proud of America again. Who knew?
