Hey guys, Drew back here. I wanted to pause from the regular card conversation to just mention my thoughts on the big news from last night. Unless you are hiding under a rock the size of Texas, you would know that the nation's most feared criminal has been killed, Al Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden! Our US troops, after searching for about 10 years, finally discovered bin Laden in Pakistan, and after a firefight, he was shot and killed. President Obama came on National TV last night and addressed the people about what took place and the precautions we must still take as a country to avoid further Al Qaeda attacks. As smart of a man as Bin Laden seemed to be, he must have had a successor in line, especially when forces from around the world could have found him any day.
No matter how you look at it, while this is certainly not the end of Al Qaeda and terrorist operations, this was a major success for our country. Osama has been one of the most evil and feared men in our country for the past decade, and he is finally gone. What this man did to us on September 11th, 2001, was the most terrible thing a person could have done to a country. While in the end it brought our entire country together, it tore us apart as well. Many innocent Americans lost their lives that day, which allows me to without a doubt be ok with our military ending his life just a little while ago.
I normally don't care a whole lot about politics, nor do I pay attention at all, but this is a major win in our country, and I wanted to have the honor of sharing and remembering the shocking news from last night.
God Bless America.
