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.

It's a cold day in Hell...Fort Benning, GA (home of the infantry!) drinks to the honor of DEVGRU today.

This isn't over - it is, after all, the beginning of the spring fighting season in the 'stan. Our brothers and sisters down range will bear the brunt of the inevitable retaliatory attacks. To them I say: get some! I know they will continue to do us proud as the pointy end of Great Satan's forign policy.

I'm very, very, very pleased. Long overdue but very welcome news.

The only bad thing about this story is, he died from a shot to the head, which means the fucking bastard didn't suffer nor did he likely feel any pain.

My take is everyone in the chain of command should receive the credit. Even Obama. It was a tough call and I’m happy he made it. To the lucky SOB who made that shot his drinks are now free for life and he gets the greatest "No-Sh@t-I-was-there" sea story in history.

However, as much as I give credit where credit is due I know in my heart that if this were Bush we would be seeing crap like this:

It's been a while since I've written and I know you've sorely missed me, though I've been Mea culpa.

I rejoice along with you on this occasion.

is anyone else reminded of the famous Son Tay raid?

crashing a helo in the middle of the compound sounds like it might have been part of the plan.
