Terminal virgin appetite disappointment. I sleep late, but not as late as Osama. OBL dead and body dumped in the ocean.
"It's a Sicilian message. It means Osama sleeps with the fishes."
Slept late and am off to the doctor this morning, so posts will be somewhat delayed. Overnight, the Navy Seals apparently permanently solved the problem of Osama bin Laden's insomnia -- score a big one for the Green Faces -- and the pundits are already proclaiming that this means Obama's reelection by acclamation. Perhaps. He'll get credit, certainly. All politicians do for stuff that the military does successfully on their watch, regardless of party and Obama's lap dogs in the media will be licking his, uh, ankles, slavishly on this one. Collectivists are nothing if not opportunists and if the death of a competing collectivist can be made to serve the interests of another, so much the better.
Am I glad that the architect of 11 September is gone to terminal virgin appetite disappointment? Certainly. Osama is sleeping with the fishes and I'm sure that the fishes are wondering where their nice neighborhood went to. I remember, however, the immutable Law of Unintended Consequences. Jihadis all over the world, and some in this country, will consider this an outrage and seek to avenge it. There is a multi-sided war of civilizations going on here with various collectivist sides, Osama as titular head of one side, Obama another, at war with liberty, Western civilization and the concept of God-given inalienable rights represented by the Founders' Republic.
Keep your powder dry.
Osama's body may be moldering in the sea, but his damned soul goes marching on.
