Rejoice, Dear Hearts... OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!

And the chances are excellent that he will be dead all week in the media. We'll get to hear about it until we're nauseous, since it's their biggest story since the Japanese tsunami. Bin Laden's prognosis is pretty much fixed... he won't be any more dead tomorrow or next week than he was yesterday.

Of course Obama is taking all the credit for it, but there are no photographs of him armed and wearing a ballistic vest. A U.S. Navy SEAL Team engaged in a firefight that lasted approximately 40 minutes in order to eliminate Bin Laden - which is really a remarkably short time considering the amount of security that Bin Laden reportedly had surrounding him.

And now the question becomes: "How long will it be before al Qaeda dispatches a team - from the middle east, or a domestic team from a sleeper cell - to assassinate Obama?" Or, will they begin by taking the "easy way" - murdering western embassy personnel abroad, or lesser national political figures in the U.S.? The overseas embassy personnel would be the most cost-effective inasmuch as they are geographically closer - and logistically easier - thereby requiring less for travel and per diem expenses, and allowing them to put more men on the job with less suspicion. Regardless, I fully expect a response from al Qaeda. Their tribal mentality cannot allow them to ignore the extermination of their "leader". Mark my words, we will see some aftershocks from the Muslim culture. Jihad recruiting will become easier, and their numbers will increase exponentially. They do not believe the old adage, "Revenge is a dish best served cold" (from the French - la vengeance se mange très-bien froide). But, more likely, they will react soon... "in the heat of passion".

Nonetheless, Osama will Bin Laden the dirt. And that idea puts a big smile on my face!
