I am celebrating the successful mission launched by U.S. Armed Forces to kill Osama bin Laden. Like millions of Americans, I am happy that he is dead and very honestly, hope that he will spend eternity in the fiery pits of hell. Maybe it is not the Christian thing for me to wish for but it is a real emotional reaction that I bet many of you feel too. Bin Laden never asked for forgiveness and had no great change of heart.
Killing bin Laden is the act of ultimate justice that can be carried out by man. Until he was killed, thankfully by a bullet fired by a U.S. solider, bin Laden and his al-Qaeda organization continued to plot acts of terror. Although his authority may have been severely hindered over the last nine years, he remained actively involved in a war against the West. While we promote freedom, bin Laden and his followers spent their time and resources devising ways to terrorize civilians and disrupt the world.
As a laymen, I still holdout some hope that there is a special place in hell for bin Laden. Regardless, he died a coward’s death, hidden away in a compound and reportedly using one of his wives as a human shield. Terrorists take note, America will not stop hunting you until we kill you.
