Osama Bin Laden is dead. It was 10:33 when I read the post on a survivalist forum. A quick search on Yahoo, not Google, told us all to tune it to the news at 10:40 PM to hear President Barack Obama address the nation on national security.
I turned on CNN and sure enough, there it was.
Osama Bin Laden is dead. It should give us all a sense of security, but it doesn't. It actually makes me even more scared. Scared of what's to come. Ever since the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, I've been scared of living in the US.
While I want to see Osama Bin Laden as no more than the terrorist thug the newscasters are calling him, if he was the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks, he didn't pull it off without accommodating a hate for the US by too many other nations of the world.
Osama Bin Laden dead. What happened, I don't know yet. I'm still waiting for the President to address us, but I'm worried about a retaliation.
The United States has been at war, on our own soil since 2011. They weren't trying to make a point. They went after the World TRADE Center. They went after our infrastructure. Those events contributed to a stock market crash. Investors turned to real estate and lending was too easy because it was the only thing driving our economy. Then that crashed too.
The war has been here, all along, on our soil. Hidden. Now that Osama Bin Laden is dead, will Al Queida retaliate?
I'm glad I found the survival forum today.
