In a 40 minute killer kinetic kaleidoscope of enhanced proportions - Great Satan extracted sweet payback, revenge and justice on al Qaeda super villain OBL.
The chopper borne strike on a compound in Pakistan (where else - nicht wahr?) literally air dropped rowdy revenge driven American Navy Seals right in al Qaeda's command lair.
"...A house eight times larger than its neighbors, with a seven-foot wall and valued at $1 million. The house had no phone of television and the residents burned their trash. The house had high windows and few points of access, and U.S. officials concluded it had been built to hide someone."
This is significant.
1st off - pretty cool to realize that OBL realized his death was imminent as the sounds of gunfire came closer to his immediate environs. Like il Duce, der führer or S'Ddam - the awesome knowledge that the end was at hand as Great Satan confronted him for surrender or a haj to the perfumed gardens of paradise. And like al Zarqawi in Iraq - the last thing OBL ever saw was a po'd American about to kill him
Equally hot - of all the nations that aQ has attacked and tormented over the years - only Great Satan had the brain power, will power, staying power and fire power to hunt him down, visit death upon him and in a fun, friendly 'forget you' way - hauled off the body as booty.
Trophylicious. And a wonderfully op to poke Pakistan about Mullah Omar
Reveling and celebrating the timely demise of OBL - sticky sweet as it is - is certainly not the end - or even the beginning of the end.
Yet it may well be the end of the beginning.
