Death of terror’s head salesman

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

What started off as any other morning has now turned into a chaotic frenzy of tweets and Facebook and BBM status updates, wherein people are trying to trump one another in informing others of the demise of terror’s head salesman.

As I grabbed my BlackBerry this morning and started to go over BBM status updates out of force of habit, I realized that Obama had delivered. To his people, and to the people of the world.

The man behind 9/11 is now dead. Killed under the leadership of Barack Obama. And thus earning Obama global praise. Another term as president? Why not! Look what the man’s done – he’s rid the world of Osama!

What about the millions (or mere hundreds, as per their ‘official’ count) of innocent lives that have been lost in the bargain?

Pfffft! Look at the greater good. It’s always about the greater good.

Brings to mind Robert Ludlum’s The Bancroft Strategy. If you haven’t read it, do find time to do so.

It’s merely 11:04am in Dubai as I type this out. The world is slowly waking up to this news.

Reactions, comments & comics will now follow.

And as they do, I can’t help but wonder if this is, in fact, the end of the reign of terror or does this merely mean another furious uprising? Another 9/11 and 26/11?

Also, with Osama Bin Laden out of the picture now, who’s taking his place as US’s super villain?
