If they did, cool, wars over. If they just killed someone and said it was him, cool, wars over.
Either way.

In your face, people who care! Anyway haven't you heard about Gamification ?

Introducing games-like application to train and educate people in working environment ?
Some say Gamification will be widely used in terrorism by rewarding terrorist for each killed target, etc. They would earn XP over time etc..

Stop making games right now I say!!!! or not.

Who cares? I would assume the families of 911 victims care, and most of the people who have family fighting in one of the 80 wars going on loosely related to 911.

Also, the republicans are going to have a field day with this buried at sea thing. They'll say he's not really dead, and obama did it to get reelected, and pakistan cooperated because they know he's a terrorist

If someday we have proof that he's not dead, US citizens (specially those who cried of joy upon Laden's death announcement) will get very, very mad.

Fox News last night was already trying to spin the focus back on Pakistan, questioning how and why Bin Laden was in a custom-made bunker in the middle of an urban area. How could he be there without their knowledge or consent, etc. etc. If Pakistan was knowingly aiding him then they got a lotta splainin to do!

As for the "who cares" thing, personally I don't feel too strongly one way or the other about it. Bin Laden hasn't been any sort of real threat for almost ten years now. I can see how it's a big deal to a lot of people though. I'd rather see him captured and imprisoned for life instead of martyred, but whatever. It doesn't really change anything as far as what we're doing in the middle east. In fact, it's probably just going to make it an even stickier situation for a while.

I will say that Obama probably just got himself re-elected though.


Oh, also one interesting thing. This all took place exactly eight years, to the day, after this:

He's obviously one of the most evil people of modern times, but it does seem to be a little morbid to be celebrating bloodshed, even when it's the way you wanted it to go.
