The morning news anchors were interviewing military personnel with questions like: Where were you when you heard the good news? - Seriously? There were also clips of “celebrations” of people singing and drinking.
It’s not like the assassination of one leader is going to end terrorism. I get the whole “justice is finally served” thing and I do understand the trauma that Americans have endured as a result of this leader’s actions…
However, I do find it totally disturbing that the media is calling it a celebration. Since when is the death of any life to be celebrated?
A military victory that helps to protect our country and the world at large should be a quiet conversation or moment of reflection between those who wish to discuss the matter. A simple, informative announcement by the media and our government would suffice.
A wild party celebration where we shout victory to the world only makes us, as a country, look like Neanderthals at best.
I am saddened by the lack of humanity depicted by the media.
Two wrongs do not make a right.
