The Value of Bin Laden’s Life

May 6, 2011

When I heard that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, I rejoiced. Then I wondered how long it would take for the pansies among us to condemn the taking of a human life. It didn’t take long at all. Like I said (in reference to Pastor Terry Jones), “not all human life is sacrosanct” – certainly not that of the mastermind of 9/11. The value placed on a human life is EARNED – not bestowed. It’s what one does with one’s life that gives it value… or not. A case in point is Pope John Paul II. He dedicated his life to good thoughts and good deeds, and now he is being sainted. Bin Laden, on the other hand, dedicated his life to killing as many people as he could in order to further his evil agenda. He, too, got what he earned. Does his life have the same value as Pope John Paul? Absolutely not!

George W. Bush declared Bin Laden “Wanted: Dead or Alive”. The Navy Seal that shot him was acting as the bounty hunter. He and his comrades are true American heroes. It doesn’t matter whether Bin Laden was armed or not, or whether he resisted capture or not. This is war and war is ugly! It doesn’t matter that Osama was bestowed at conception with human DNA. His fate was sealed the day he and his co-conspirators brought down the World Trade Center towers, killing 3,000 innocent people whose lives DID have value. It is an insult to those victims and their families to assign any value whatsoever to the life of Osama Bin Laden. It’s a shame that his death was so swift. He should have been made to suffer first. It’s good that he was killed rather than captured, though, because our justice system would have assigned undeserved value to his life and delayed justice for years or even denied us of justice completely.

I’m sorry that Bin Laden was so swiftly buried at sea. That was an affront to all the sailors who were honorably buried there and plays into the hands of conspiracy theorists. His head should have been severed and mounted on a pole for all to see, and his body left in the street for the buzzards and maggots. The pictures of his corpse should be made available so that anyone who wants to see them can do so. The pansies and faint of heart don’t have to view them if they don’t want to, but it’s not right for the Obama administration to censor them from the rest of us. There’s no need to tiptoe around sensitive information because it might inflame Bin Laden’s supporters. Killing him has already done that.

The supreme terrorist is dead and that’s a good thing. Rejoice and be glad in it. This is only the beginning of the end, however. The world needs to be rid of all evil. Next up… Ayman al-Zawahiri – the new terrorist-in-chief. Hopefully, his death will come soon. The proposal that we conduct peace talks with the Taliban turns my stomach. Their lives don’t have any value either, and the sooner they all die the better for all of humanity. Remember, they are the terrorists who threw acid in the faces of innocent girls simply because they wanted to get an education. My thanks to President Obama for ramrodding the take-down of Bin Laden, to the special forces who pulled it off, and to all the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much to bring us to this point in the war on terror. They have all proven that their lives are valuable. It is traitorous to question the methods used to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice, or to attempt to shame anyone who delights in the death of a terrorist whose life had no value.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I didn’t mention Muslim or Islam because the thoughts didn’t enter into my mind. I was thinking about the “man”, not his religion. As far as I’m concerned, it had nothing to do with the evil that was inside him. Hitler was raised a Roman Catholic but, like Bin Laden, twisted his religion into something that served his purposes. They were both evil mass-murderers, and that’s all we need to know. Peace on you and thanks again.
