The depths of Despair.
[QUOTE=Equilibrium;4018348]One third of my life and my career from the beginning consumed by him. I am sitting back and just taking it in.
Reflecting on the victims of 9/11, my friends and associates who lost their lives and suffered grievous injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan and the death and destruction unleashed in the quest to avenge it.
It is all coming to me in a rush.....
[B]I can only think of Winston Churchill's remarks rig now in my head:
It's not the end, not even the beginning of the end, but perhaps the end of the beginning[/B].[/QUOTE]
I'll go out at some point tomorrow and find the fireworks I've carried in a brown paper bag for ten years waiting for this moment.
I never allowed much of this 9/11 anniversery stuff to touch me, but this was the one thing in the back of my mind that I knew could bring it all back.
[QUOTE=T-Rex N' Bones;4018359]Even if I knew no one from 9/11 I think it affects EVERY American in this country. [B]This is seriously the greatest moment I have ever witnessed in American history[/B].[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Black Death;4018361]This is obviously big news, but has been coming for a long time. He was staying in a mansion of all places outside Islamabad. Wonder what the taliban-ridden Pakistan will think of this?
If the President is any sort of leader he will not claim any share in this victory.[/QUOTE]
Has he ever come out to say, "Hey I am awesome, look what I did"?
I don't think Obama has stumbled too much when giving a speech about something that transpired. I doubt he will now.
Having said that, he will probably use this during the campaign. He better be careful with it though, he could put some voters off if overstated.
First they said air strike, now he's been hunted down. I have trouble believing
the nonsense teh state says. Other day Susan Rice was making up **** on the spot about Libya giving boner pills to troops to rape Libyian rebel women, with zero proof. Glad the guy is dead, sadly i don't think it will decrease the military spending.
