There are also so many conspiracy theories going around already. Some say he died years ago. Others say this news is to try to cause problems for Pakistan. Just don't know what to believe any more.
I saw this tweet being re-tweeted on Twitter and it pretty much sums up how I feel:
"I just can’t find it in me to be glad one more person is dead, even if it is Osama Bin Laden." - Harry Waizer, 9/11 survivor
I didn't support what Osama had done/was doing but I can not join in the celebrations of his death. It is a victory is it? It has taken 10 years and countless of deaths, muslims and non-muslims to find this one man. However the main reason I cannot celebrate is I am now worried about what his loyal supporters will do. As he was killed in Pakistan I fear for the country. Apparently the Taliban have threatened attacks against the Pakistan government. UK and USA are likely to be targets too.
I sincerely hope I am wrong.
There have also been reports that mosques have been graffitied and will muslims now stop being called terrorists? Unlikely.
Celebrate all you want. But this war against terror is far from over.
