Too bad George W. Bush already blew the aircraft carrier and 'mission accomplished' banner budget. As well as the rest of your guys' money.

Well at least no one made this political...

Anyway, hats off the the President for giving the go ahead for committing to an action deep in Pakistan. With so many stories of American military mistakes and stagnation, its good to see a military action where the good guys live, the bad guys die, and everything goes as planned.

Navy Seals, bitches.

And yes, I'm waiting for the movie.

Evidently they have footage of the attack.

I bet they'll use it as the intro video for Modern Warfare 3.

It was amazing to see all the people in DC and at Ground Zero last night....it's hard to believe (IMO) that people still have hung onto to the actions of ONE guy. I mean....since 9/11....2 wars....a trillion+ spent....over 900,000+ dead...Patriot Act....TSA ass rape....

To say the least, a lot has changed in 10 years. I wonder if (and we can reflect on this some years into the future I am sure) the events of the past 10 years really did hinge on one act of terrorism driven by an organization lead by Osama, or if the pieces would have fallen into place anyway due to larger political issues.

Anyway, I always enjoy these brief moments of American unity where everyone gets together and celebrates how great it is to be an American. I hope this signifies a turning point for our country over the next 10 years.

^ The last brief moment of American unity was right after 9/11...and look how well that turned out.

Prof: If you don't want me to make things political through my joking/seriousness, then get out of the politics forum. USA! USA! USA!
