I've seen this pop up around the internet tonight:

"Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles." Proverbs 24:17

I remember feeling a little grossed out by the glee after Saddam Hussein's execution (especially given how it seemed so much like a lynching).

For whatever reason--and I don't know that this is a good thing--I feel no such reservations at the moment. I'm glad Bin Laden's dead, and I'm glad we killed him. Good riddance.

Though as Russell Arben Fox writes, "If only I could believe that a well-executed firefight could rid us of all the civic and international damage he has left in his wake."
