Celebration at our Service Academies to word of Bin Ladin's death

Man what a great day isn't it?  Granted, it took long enough, but the celebration has been epic.  Here's West Point and USNA celebrating.  Obviously I wish my greenie beenie brothers had been the ones on the takedown, but hat tip to the awesome US Navy SEALS.

First, our Commander in Chief:

 

USMA: USNA:

 

My favorite tongue-in-cheek comment thus far was one person demanding to see the long form death certificate. I don't think I will ever forget waking up this morning to the wonderful news.

Did you know that there is more ocean than land? The names of the ocean are the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Arctic Ocean, and Atlantic Ocean. There are lots of plants AC Evaporator in the ocean. Here are some of them: kelp, seaweed, and algae. There are lots of animals in the ocean, too, like sea turtles, blue whales, seals, and fish. I feel that this is a perfect biome for animals around the world.Attitude is always pleasant to enjoy the fruits of our labours, of course. Sometimes, however, it seems that whatever we do, it's just not enough to be able to afford that new car or that foreign holiday. So, what do we usually do then? We work harder, longer; we increase the stress on our minds and bodies; we spend less time with our families and friends; 350-050 | 000-115 | 640-721 | 156-215.70 | 70-291 | 70-270 | 642-873 | 646-046 | C-TFIN22-64 | OG0-093 | 117-101 | 642-974 | NS0-154 | 642-262 | 000-119 we become more irascible and less likeable people. If you find yourself in this situation, just stop for a moment, and consider: Is it all worth it? What is the purpose of life? Surely it is to be happy. You'll probably be happier if you adopt the philosophy that true quality of life is not to be found in material things. If you convince yourself that you want less, you'll need less. If you need less, you'll cope with life more easily, and the happier, and therefore healthier, you'll be. Buddha called this "enlightenment". Enjoy a "good-health attitude". Focus on your abilities instead of disabilities. Be satisfied with what you have, rather than be dissatisfied about what you don't have and probably never will have.

I was a little bit confused at the beginning and the middle of your post, rockingsteve, but the end made perfect sense.

OBL definitely needed to be terminated but celebratin' serves no useful purpose ... just flush and be done with it!

I am impressed by the quality of information on this website. There are a lot of good resources here.
I am sure I will visit this place again soon.

Thanks a ton for stating your opinions. Being a writer, I am always in need of unique and different solutions to think about a topic. I actually uncover fantastic creativity in doing this. Many thanks.

The ace has been discarded. However, there are some more cards in the deck to be discarded before fully having a winning hand. They will come with less fanfare...they will come! I am very pleased with the way it was handled by the U.S.--- leaving no martyr; having a brief celebration and then doing what Vetcounselor said, "just flush and be done with it".
