Looking into the Abyss

I shed no tears for Osama bin Laden. If this gives the US government a reason to get out of Afghanistan (where no one wants us and where we don’t want to be) and Iraq (where major combat operations ended eight years ago, remember?), then maybe that vile bloodstained scumbag will not have died in vain. Otherwise, I’m not sure it means much: just one more severed head on a trophy wall already crammed with such.

We’ve been fighting this monster a long time. What has it made of us?
