Well, I'd be happy about it. He's the one behind 11/9, right? How did he die?
I doesn't care, do I?

I think a link is appropriate, Duskling.
Perhaps something like

... Or did you had in mind an older one?

I'm still a bit sceptic about it...

I'm with Ert.

Honestly, I'd mourn the lost soul, if he were dead. I find nothing to celebrate about in the idea of a man that knows not a living God.

DNA testing confirms bin Laden death

Well, I'd be happy about it. He's the one behind 11/9, right? How did he die?
Where are you from to have to ask who caused 9/11 and many other terrorist attacks that happened across five continents?

That is ridiculous. There should not be any mourning for a mass murder.  With his death, Al-Qaeda is weakened and therefore more innocent lives will be safe.

The fact that he was hiding out speaks to how weakened al-Qaeda already was. This is largely symbolic. That said, it's a powerful one.

Already seen the conspiracy theories (http://www.examiner.com/strange-mysterious-facts-in-national/osama-bin-laden-dead-but-conspiracy-lingers) that we actually killed him years ago and just now released it. After the Truther/Birther stuff I shouldn't be surprised, but I'm surprised.

The death of a person is a thing that will never make me happy.
However, I think that Osama bin Laden is better dead than free.

Basically sums up my feelings. I'm not about to run around yelling "USA USA USA," but I prefer him dead to alive and free. It was something that needed to be done, but its not a celebratory event

I can't say truly that I am glad he's dead, however, I believe that he was a disgrace to the Muslim world and a shame upon the people whom he ruled, I can't say I'm glad he's dead, but you won't catch me mourning.

Well, EXCUSE ME for having SOME value for any human life.

But it sure didn't look like Osama held value for any human life on 9/11.

History is written by the victors, although he was a horrible man, consider this if you were Japanese during the bombings, what would you opinion be of Americans?

Not in particular, and yes I despised him, but I like to consider viewpoints that I don't necessarily support and like to encourage others in general to do so as well.

Well, I'd probably think of them as heartless monsters, but, had I the same personality as I do in real life, I'd consider which side the Japanese were on in the war, you know, I'm a rationalist, I take a look at both sides, and one of my mottoes is, "At some point, you'll have to do something you really, really don't want to," so I'm not too quick to judge based on actions such as bombings (Though I saw no good reason for 9/11), as they are usually reserved as last resort-type actions.

Now, with Osama, he worshiped Islam and was in Afghanistan during their fight to repel a Soviet invasion, where they had succeeded in driving off the Soviets, but then, he got carried away, and formed or joined a radical group known as Al Qaeda in which extremist Muslims join in hopes of gaining favor of Allah, which many Muslims in the Middle East, especially the younger ones, who are easier to manipulate, join, and kill all non-believers in the name of Allah.

Synopsis: Osama, or Usama, bin Laden is following one of the older, should I say, more forgotten or less practiced, rules of the Qu'ran, to kill or punish all non-believers, taking that rule, and using it as a basis for war, along with the rest of Al Qaeda.

My Personal Opinion: He deserved to die, his existence by itself was a threat to the US, the Middle East, and perhaps the world. Though there are others like him, ending Osama brings us one step closer to victory in the war on terror.
