Osama Bin Laden is dead... if there is retaliation, what?

With Osama Bin Laden dead, will Al Queida retaliate?  So far all the news has reported is that DNA testing has been done to determine that the body is in fact that of Osama Bin Laden.  I don't know how fast the body could have been delivered to the US, or how fast Washington can get DNA results back, but I would imagine it would have taken at least a day or two just to get the body to U.S. soil for the DNA testing.

The first news report I read said that Obama would be addressing the US about 'national security.'  This leads me to believe that we're about to be warned about new security threats.  Living close to Tampa Bay and MacDill AFB is cause for concern to us.

We've only just begun to become a self-sustaining, survivalist family.  I'm not sure we're prepared to withstand a retaliation equal to or greater than the September 11 attacks that Osama Bin Laden was the mastermind behind.

The US will probably take some comfort in knowing that the 'mastermind' behind those 9/11 attacks is now gone, but I, along with many others I imagine, know that to be a mastermind, you have to have followers, and they have to be as committed to the cause as the leader is.  We've only lost one member of a lunatic fringe.  Osama Bin Laden is dead, but his mission will live on in the decipels he left behind.
