    GOT HIM!


    Unfortunately this changes nothing. If anything, we will face retaliation.

    Lets keep all the politics out of this and just rejoice that the world has won a major victory today. A very evil man is no longer going to threaten the safety of our countrymen.

    It is good news for most.
    Sorry about the political twist.

    Regarding his DNA.
    Bin Laden was managing several family companies, therefore his DNA was not hard to match, he has not always lived hidden.
    He lost 300.000.000 USD by his change... According to Forbes;

    Not at all political, but $5 says he was tortured before killed. If we didn't want some face to face time, a UAV could have done the job with no risk of a loss of life.

    The Laws of Thermodynamics say:

    Zeroth Law: "You must play the game."
    First Law: "You can't win."
    Second Law: "You can't break even."
    Third Law: "You can't quit the game."

    Do you wanna Play Thermodynamics ???????? I forgot "you must"

    Let's not forget that we might be screwed for the coming week or so. There might be an all-out terror attack on us.

    There is fear of retaliation. US citizens in government buildings keep your eyes out.

    Collateral damage. Don't know who else was in the compound and there may have been other buildings close by. Plus you need boots on the ground to confirm kills.

    Once the government outlaws your guns your life is forfeit. You're already dead, it's just a question of when they are going to get around to you.
