Bin Laden's death means world is a safer place?

Post  Lisa Ella Humenberger on Mon May 02, 2011 2:53 pm

"The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al Qaeda," President Obama said at the White House. On May 1, 2011, the death of the most wanted terrorist on earth was announced which was Osama Bin Laden. He was killed by a group of Americans who went on the mission under Obama's orders. Many Americans celebrated on the streets thinking that his death may be a relief to what had happened to the American citizens in the event of 9/11, but does this mean that the world is safer now that he is dead? President Obama said that terrorist attacks are a big concern at the moment. He said, "There's no doubt that al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must and we will remain vigilant at home and abroad." The killing of bin Laden was also celebrated by George Bush, who was president on September 11, 2001 when airliners hijacked by the al Qaeda crashed into the Pentagon and the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center.

The british minister David Cameron said that Osama's death would bring great releif to people all around the world as well as the European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek said, "We have woken up in a more secure world.'' President Hamid Karzai said that this should teach the Taliban a lesson, but while some leaders were announcing that the world had become safer, many countries were preparing their people for the worst.

Do you think the world is safer now that bin Laden is dead or do you think they will seek revenge on the U.S?
