So Osama bin Laden is (allegedly*) dead. ‘Justice has been done’ claim many. I think the killing of any man is a warped view of justice. It is not justice – it is revenge. And in this case may well lead to reciprocal killings from extremists.
My opinion is that true justice is about reconciliation. I doubt very much that the killing of Osama bin Laden will make the world a safer place – it will just deepen the rift between the West with our superiority complex and Islamic extremists. I wouldn’t want to claim for a second that resolution is simple, or even possible, but I strongly believe that it is wrong to celebrate the death of anyone.
* Sorry how ridiculous that his body was buried at sea because USA is so respectful of his belief he should be buried within 24 hours….very, very convenient.
