Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Is it unseemly to do a happy dance when someone dies?

Probably. In fact, almost certainly. But I did one last week. I caught the headline that Abu Laith Al Libi had been killed. This made me happy. I never met Abu Laith but I knew quite a bit about him. I spent a great deal of time talking to a young Afghan who he had recruited to attack Americans in Afghanistan. We went over went over how, when, and where he met with Al Libi. We got imagery of the place. We talked about the other Arab who accompanied this young man into Afghanistan from the madrasa where he was studying in Pakistan.
I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about this because I rather strongly suspect that the details are still classified.
Suffice it to say that when I heard he had been blown up I was just a bit pleased.

I'll have to look him up, but I have a good feeling that if I knew who he was, I'll be drinking to his death tonight.

Evil men with an evil purpose deserve to come to an unpleasent end. I think being blown up qualifies.

Feel free to dance away..I support you.
