Osama Bin Laden Is Dead, Time To Bring Home the Troops
It’s been nearly ten years of fear mongering, jingoism and seemingly endless war. Bin Laden was a very small and evil man. Frankly I am surprised that it took this long for the United States to finally deliver justice. Now the job is done. I am certain he lived in fear these past nine and a half years. Perhaps tossing in turning every night, disturbed by nightmares of the thundering blades of American Black Hawk helicopters that he knew would one night come for him.
He is gone and that’s a good thing. Now it is time for America to get our house in order. It is time to end the wars and occupation that Bin Laden provoked. His goal was to pull us in to conflict with all of the Muslim world so that they might unite under his banner to battle against us. In this he failed. We have prevailed and now it is time for us to move on to face even greater threats and challenges.
There have been a legion of opportunists that have manipulated the public with fear of Bin Laden to fatten their own purses to the detriment of the public treasury. They get richer while we spill blood and literally trillions of dollars on wars that we no longer need to fight.
Bin Laden is dead, The War on Terror has been won. Now is the time to close the vast majority of our foreign military bases and bring home all the troops. Our government spends years bickering over how to cut the outlandish expenditures that threaten to cripple our economy and country for generations to come. It is time to force them to take the low hanging fruit.
Call your Senators and Congressional Representatives. Write letters to newspapers and phone in to those crazy Talk Radio shows. Blog it, Tweet it, let the world know we have won the War on Terror and it is time to Bring Home the Troops.
