Savor this moment

And so, just like that, the most hated man in the world is gone, done in by the American military to strike a blow for not only revenge, but more importantly justice.

Foe one brief shining moment, Republicans are lauding the military strike into Pakistan ordered by Barack Obama. The president acted with his usual cool determination in finally bringing about the promise of his predecessor that the United States will take the mastermind of the 9-11 plot "dead or alive."

But in our "what have you done for us lately" society, don't expect the euphoria to last. Al Qaeda was probably already at work on a 10th anniversary reminder and terrorists will be more ready than ever to sacrifice their own lives to the honor someone they consider a martyr.

And I just can't imagine the Obama haters letting up for a day, if that long, in finding faults in the decision and operation.

So savor this moment of unity, a brief time when a nation is desperate need of a victory relishes in the end of a man who has represented pain and suffering and lawlessness met rough justice.

No Gitmo debates, no trials of the millennium. An eye for an eye.

As current commander in chief Barack is head of the operation that finally culminated in eradicating the scourge. Kudos a dozen times over. The world is a horrible dangerous place at times, but a little bit safer now.
