Osama appeared to be reaching for a weapon and was shot, hip hip Hooray!?


PanAm is as glad as any that the mastermind of the tragedy of  “911” has reportedly met his end, but is a bit taken aback with the  circus-like and carnival atmosphere exhibited by some who dance in the street and guffaw and hurrah as if they have just won a beer-drinking contest…

Also, somewhat concerned that the White House might be using the killing of Osama as a Re-Election 2012  campaign event at Ground Zero…  But, if so, that would be par for the course in modern political campaigns…

Undoubtedly, the American military performed admirably and deserves countless kudos — and the American people as well deserve a dignified closing of one chapter of the 911 saga…    Hopefully, politicians and White House P.R.  folks will not sully the aftermath

Just sayin’.

  1. Unfortunately, I would suggest that you are asking restraint that is far above and beyond politicians and their mouthpieces. Personally, I am not one for dancing in the streets, even if it might act as reminder to those who filled some of the Muslim streets following 9/11.

    • Yeah, Maine, politicians will be, well, politicians, of course…
      And I agree, as you seem to suggest, that though the impulse might be strong for some to prance around and hoot and holler as the Arabs did after the towers came down, most Americans believe it best that we not seem vengeful nor revel in street festivals, but act dignified and reflective after justice has been dispensed — because acting as “uncivilized” as some in the Arab world did after “911” does not befit us…

      Especially considering that the fight is not over, that victory is not at yet at hand — that thousands of our fellow citizens are still serving and dying in the Middle East
