Posted on 05/05/2011 11:37:16 AM PDT by presidio9
American bloggers have hit back at Europeans who have criticised the outpouring of joy over the death of Osama Bin Laden. While thousands of U.S citizens took to the streets to celebrate the killing, the reaction in Europe was far more muted. And some are so angered by what they see as a judgmental stance from across The Pond, they have gone online to hit back at the 'cheese-eating surrender monkeys'. Many in Europe have questioned not only the manner of the killing of an unarmed man, but also the taste and dignity of the American public who chanted 'USA' in the streets. Expressing these sentiments is Britain's Archbishop of Canterbury who said: 'I think the killing of an unarmed man is always going to leave a very uncomfortable feeling because it doesn't look as if justice is seen to be done.' However, he went on: 'But I do believe that in such circumstances when we are faced with someone who was manifestly a war criminal in terms of the atrocities inflicted it is important that justice is seen to be served.' When Bin Laden's men flew airliners into New York's World Trade Center 10 years ago, it sparked an outpouring of solidarity from Europe, best captured by a French newspaper headline 'We are all Americans now'. But that solidarity seemingly hasn't

The class thing to do would have been to scrape him off our shoes with quiet dignity, look straight into the camera lens and say “who's next”
Instead we have kids playing in the streets.
Most of them WERE kids when the towers were hit, so OBL was always a childhood monster- I have no idea what that feels like, so maybe I am seeing it wrong.
FWIW, I think most of those “thousands” of US citizens who were out celebrating outside the White House were Obama supporters, called out to celebrate their Dear Leader.
OTOH, I agree with the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey bit.
Now, let’s get out of Libya and stop helping the Muslim terrorists take over Africa.
But we didnt Waterboard him. That counts for nothing? How about our CandC Obama getting a peace prize? No points for that either?
In France you only march for more government freebees,
“land burning communists.”
:) Please explain WTH that means?
The street celebrations were mostly Obama-bots cheering for their Dear Leader.
Cry me a river Euro wussies! The Muslims are about to take over the major capitals of Europe and your “best and brightest” intelligensia still persist in their love affair with huge numbers of Muslim immigrants. Euros — prepare to convert to Islam, die, or be enslaved by your new Muslim masters.
Unarmed man? So are the surrender monkies suggesting that we cut off his arms before we shot him in his face?
‘Cuz, if so, then great!
It started with the President himself coming on at 11:30 pm to make the announcement.
Obama wants maximum PR from this event, but his actions are raising up the status of UBL and Al Qaeda and lowering that of the President.
the announcement should have been made by mid-level Pentagon people, not a President in the middle of the night. Proof of the raid, and UBL’s body, should have been made public immediately. Body should even have been shown to some journalists. Then simply dispose of the body respectfully, without the nonsense kowtowing to PC fake-muslim sensibilities.
focus on the military aspects, keep the politics and PC’ness out of it.
The president could then comment 1-2 days later.
But Obama is a narcissist and a PR-whore, so he will use the Presidency for that purpose instead.
Sort of like FDR or LBJ for previous generations.<\
Am I the only person who couldn’t possibly care less what most people in Europe think, say, or do?
Are white Christian American conservatives even ALLOWED to be angry?
After all, haven’t we used the downtrodden rest of the world as our footstool?
Yeah, I didn’t tramp through the streets shouting “USA” or anything...
I just went down to the local bar and ordered up a “Bin Laden” - two shots and a splash of water.
We are in 100% agreement. I said the same thing, nearly identical, in some other places. Likewise, I noticed that a lot of those celebrating in DC were college kids. At 1st, I was thinking that they were just looking for an excuse to party. But then, like your realization, I though about the fact that OBL was truly a scary monster, as they were 8-11 years old when the WTC was destroyed. And they saw it in full color on every station for a week straight.
Realistically, people simply react in different ways.
Which is exactly what George Bush would have done IMO (and which is why he's not attending the Ground Zero thing).
I agree...this reaction is now all cheap emotion and I can see why the Europeans are a bit disdainful.
As a Christian I did not rejoice at Bin Laden’s death; however, as a Christian and an American I did rejoice that he was no longer able to perpetrate his brand of evil.
Hell, don’t due them justice. Half may not even know who O is, or thinks he is. They’re always up for some hell-raisin’. Like, SPRING BREAK - extended.....
I love this. The more Euros dislike us, we know we are on the right track.
“Stealth Blackhawk helicopter” for special ops. Eat your hearts out.
Btw the White House astroturf party looked for all the world like what the old Soviets would gin up and report as a "spontaneous demonstration." They had an hour to engineer it, which is probably plenty of time for the facebookies and tweeters to swarm out of their little hives.
I think theres a very good reason for the ‘muted’ response. Its the typical mislead and destined to fail ‘olive leaf’ to the RHs. That is, ‘We’re not happy, please don’t target us!!!’. Little good it did Spain so many years ago to tuck tail and run, they got bombed anyway. In any event despite protestations the euros know they’re going to get a front row seat to the wrath of the RHs over this. Its same story repeated so many times in the recent past, the euros are REALLY slow learners.
That said, the euros had no problem whacking on Libya and it was all about oil too. I suppose we’ll be told thats ‘different’. I wonder if it’ll make the lumps about to be received any less painful?
I would say that the official response by the USA has also been muted. President Obama refuses to permit a photo of the slain Osama because "that is not who we are." But he does permit the release of thousands of Abu Ghraib photos of "supposed" torture of terrorists.
So the Abu Ghraib Prison photos DO say who we are? Or, is that what this Democrat Administration thinks who we are? A handful of misguided military people say who we are? The so-called "torture" is more like the initiation antics at a fraternity!
Or, do our friends on the other side of the Atlantic pick and choose which story to believe? ... Osama wearing an explosive belt? ...Osama with a room full of weapons? ...Osama trying to surrender peacefully? ...Osama reaching for something in his garb? What are the facts of the matter in connection with Osama? Are there any?
I could care less what the Euros think of us, or the Muslim countries. Bin Ladan got what was coming to him.
Celebrate? Not so much. I shrugged my shoulders and said...one more down. I don’t see this as a huge coup simply because I think he was not as important to their movement as he once was.
As for Obama’s victory tour? Classless as usual. They should have had a high level person from the DOD come out and say simply....we will not give any details but Osama Bin Laden was killed in a raid by troops this morning. Proof of his death to follow.
They should have left it at that instead of creating another dog and pony show.
Why don’t we get to the truth? The only place that happened was outside the WH where the WH set up those to go out and make it look like we were all cheering. UNITY All Praise Obama. What a joke.
Didn’t happen in any other cities other than Obozo supporters in NYC and DC.
Most people probably doubt the whole story. For good reason.
Well, I guess they would have been more grateful if we had captured OBL and released him “somewhere” in Europe???
Maybe we should have left them all alone such that they’d be speaking German today. And, I’ve always said I don’t know why we didn’t leave England for what was to become America earlier than we did.
WAIT A MINUTE: I thought our messiah promised to improve our standing in the world???
Are you forgetting that UBL staged major attacks in both England and Spain? The Spanish response was caving the next day's election.
Appropriately posted on May 5—French Humiliation Day (otherwise known as the Cinco de Mayo).
I don’t get it - I thought electing Obama was supposed to make the Europeans love us again. Did Katie Couric lie to me again?
Sort of like FDR or LBJ for previous generations. For people from my generation it was Jimmy Carter, which is why we laughed so hard when the townspeople pf Springfield identified him as "History's Greatest Monster."
I must admit, the choreographed Obama Campaign Rally outside the White House on Sunday night struck me as tacky and unseemly too.
I don’t worry anymore about what Europeans think. They used to matter, but now they mean no more to me than Africans, Middle Easterners, South Americans, et al. Just another bunch of foreigners with no values of any worth to me.
Whoever sheds mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed (Gen.9:6)
He who kills a man shall be put to death (Exod.21:12; Num. 35:30)
I'm a Christian, but I rejoiced anyway.
Agreed. No mercy, no consideration, nothing but death for these bastards.
They love death so much, then we ****ing give it to them.
You forget that 67 Britons died in the twin towers on 9/11, as well as citizens of other European countries. That's more Britons than the number killed in the subsequent Al-Quaeda bombing of the London tube on 7/7, and more than died in any single incident in the 20-odd years of IRA terrorism in Britain.
Many in Europe have questioned not only the manner of the killing of an unarmed man, but also the taste and dignity of the American public who chanted 'USA' in the streets.We'll keep that in mind as the Muzzies burn your countries down to the ground.
What I cannot understand is this willful, purposeful blindness to a threat just as malignant and just as dangerous as Hitler's Nazis in World War 2. Yet, the so-called “leadership” of Western Civilization steadfastly refuse to understand we are in a war to the death with Islam's fanatic followers. That's correct, if the so-called “peaceful” Muslims do not find their voice and condemn terrorist attacks and stop acting as tacit enablers, then they are part of the problem and not the solution.
Islam does not allow its followers a choice: all believers must submit to Islam. Those who do not are Infidels. Infidels are to be: (1) killed, (2) converted, or (3) enslaved. There's no case 4. Also, Muslims are forbidden to lie to other Muslims, but get unlimited permission to lie to Infidels. Ergo, when a Muslim speaks to an Infidel he's lying (by his own religion's definition).
Anti-nationalism is the official state religion in most of Europe.
