Bin Laden’s death not the end of the war
Many have rejoiced in his death. But it is not the end of the war his forces have started.
Terrorism undoubtedly will continue until the country that put an end to Nazism and other dictatorships succeeds in convincing people that freedom and democracy must be the way of the world and the birthright of everyone, no matter where they exist. With the ending of bin Laden, the war will continue and many who were on his side may become even more violent with his demise.
We must take his death in stride and continue to support efforts to make the world a safer place in which to live. As the leading defender of freedom in the world, we need to take the leadership in seeking that goal.
We led the world successfully in that pursuit during World Wars I and II and in the Cold War against communist forces who wanted to take over the globe. And we must continue to put our full efforts in that goal.
In so doing, we will not be encroaching on anyone’s beliefs. And we leave them free to live their own lives the way they desire.
But we are intent on preventing them from interfering with the freedom of others. It is evidently the assignment of the United States of America to lead the way in that direction.
And we must continue to do so.
As we put bin Laden to rest, let us remember there are others out there waiting to take his place and pursue his goals through terrorism. Let us put them to rest, too.
