Osama Bin Laden is dead, having been killed by U.S. forces and the C.I.A. Well, at least according to President Obama. Cue footage of celebrations at Ground Zero in New York.
I can understand the U.S. seeing this as a victory for the country and for justice. But some of the celebrations have a distinct nationalist and jingoistic feel to them, which surely isn’t appropriate.
Is recounting the pledge of allegiance really necessary? Or the celebratory flag waving? Or the constant chants of “U.S.A.”? It’s all a little over the top, isn’t it?
After all, Bin Laden was just one man. He’ll have already been replaced at the top of al-Qaeda by someone else who hates America and is willing to launch horrific terrorist attacks on them and other democracies around the world.
