The War Isn't Over

The elimination and defeat of terrorist Osama bin Laden is clearly a good thing. Osama bin Laden will never kill another American, nor will he ever kill any of his fellow Muslims again. As President Obama said on Sunday, "Osama bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims."

However, Osama bin Laden's elimination does not mark the end of the War on Terror. Al Qaeda members, and other terrorists that wish to harm the United States, restrict freedom, prevent democracy, and kill innocent people are still at large. The War on Terror, for the United States, will not be over until every last terrorist is dead or in jail. The elimination of Osama bin Laden is merely a victory in one battle in the War on Terror.
