Osama Bin Laden: What do we believe?

I'm 27 with an open-mind for opinions and strangers. I love everything about words, you can find me curled up with a good book any day and believe it or not I can read and listen at the same time..its called TALENT!

I woke up to the news of Osama Bin Laden's death and I wasn't shook to my core or surprised that this had happened.

What caught my attention was the fact that this is still relevant. From what I believed previously was that he already died of lung cancer. I am not blinded by the fact that our government has been screwed up for some time now. The supposed death of Osama Bin Laden, to me, is just another way of distracting us from whatever the truth may be.

I will have to see the actual body of Osama Bin Laden to believe this to be true.

Is it morally correct to rejoice in the killing of someone? What does this teach our children? That retaliation is appropriate only sometimes? So many questions surround this moment in history. I personally would just hope that retailiation from the otherside doesn't happen, seeing that this circle of violence is ongoing.

In talking about what you call "the supposed death of Osama bin Laden" you say that you thought "he already died of lung cancer" and that you "have to see the actual body" to believe it's true now.

What visual evidence did you have to make you believe he had died of lung cancer?

If you didn't need visual evidence then, why do you need visual evidence now? Why don't you believe President Obama when he says bin Laden was killed, his body take into custody and then buried at sea?
