The capture and killing of Usama Bin Laden (UBL) is a massive coup for the Obama administration and more importantly for the American people. Rightfully so, Obama will make the most of this and you will see his poll numbers increase as a result. Usama Bin Laden was an evil terrorist, who epitomised radical and fundamental Islam.
What people shouldn’t start thinking is that the ‘War on Terror’ is suddenly over as a result of this killing.
UBL, as result of the pressure of the largest
man hunt in history, was running, hiding and limited to a few videos every year denouncing America and the infidels. What has happened since September 11th 2001 is that the network Al -Qaeda has carried out attacks and I believe will continue to do so in spite of his death.
If anyone tells you that his death will spell the end of violence throughout the world are dangerously out of their depth and need to be educated.
Do you think that airports will no longer have strict security? Will the immigration system fundamentally change throughout Europe, allowing anyone to enter countries regardless of their radical views and associations? Will Jews be able to travel freely to places such as Iran, Syria, and Malaysia without the threats of harassment, violence and deportation? Will the violence in Afghanistan and Iraq finally cease? Will we see Iran putting down their weapons and form a peace deal with Israel and the West?
The answer to all those questions is a fundamental NO!
Radical Islam still has its mission to infiltrate and overpower every nation in the world. If they can’t destroy via demographic means (higher birth-rate), then they will attempt to change the demographics by annihilating the infidels through terrorist attacks.
The world is very much the same as it was 24 hours ago when they were still chasing UBL. We need to be vigilant, ahead of the game and looking to break up future terrorist attacks before they kill more innocent civilians. We need to ensure that the leaders we have in place, totally understand what is at stake and if they don’t think that Radical Islam is such a threat then we need to replace them with people that do.
Many people will now think that Obama is a shoe-in for re-election in 2012.
Killing UBL will certainly help his numbers and no one can take that away from him.
Nonetheless, ask yourself these questions:
Will the killing of UBL lower the price of Gas at the pump? It is not over $4 per gallon and it doesn’t look like it will go down anytime soon.
Will the killing of UBL provide 9% of the unemployed people of America a job?
Will the killing of UBL reduce the debt anytime soon?
Will the killing of UBL reduce our dependence on foreign oil?
People will be on high as a result of this amazing news but reality will rear its head once again and people, Americans have short memories in life and they will draw their attention to other things that matter as much to them.
For now, my thoughts are with the family of the victims of 9/11. Whilst nothing can ever be done to bring their loved ones back, at some level, justice has finally been served.
