Well put. These terrorists are just plain murderers, and hold no value for any human life, even their own. I don't think they would ever stop killing, they thrive on the fear an chaos that they create. They really don't even have an actual cause, no country to claim as their home. They use religion as a tool, but I don't think they even care, it just something they can use. Somebody over the years, has used pretty much every religion in a similar manner, it's nothing new. I don't believe for a moment that all Muslims think the same way as these terrorists.Looking back to 2005 and today in the UK:
The UK and the EU in general are far from safe of terrorist attacks. Also as Eric points out the US and GB have been allies for over 100 years.
Now I am far from thrilled with every action my country decides to embark upon or how they go about it. I am sure the same is true of many of my friends across the pond. Everyone here has the right to express their opinion(s). Rights are really a nice to have thing but do come with a cost.
The problem I have with the terrorist is they will not be happy till everyone who fails to see things their way is dead. When they attack non combatant civilians to send their message it becomes time to start eradication of them. Personally I am not real big with taking prisoners with these people. These are not the sort of people you can offer an olive branch to and suggest we all get along and live in peace. The moment you turn away they will shove that olive branch (and likely the whole tree) up your ass as they murder you and your family. Therefore I have no reservations about murdering them and their families.
The death of a few leaders is not going to stop them. Their attacks will continue and have become a way of life.
Seems like the White House does enjoy displaying it's 'trophies' from the raid, notice several links to home videos, the seized in the raid. I'm sure there is more to come, once they've sort out their 'haul'.
