A story of patriotism told through google image
I normally don't like to cross over into the political side of things too often, but I feel this occasion is special enough to casually entertain and share a tale of American pride with a few Google images. Unless you live under a rock (hopefully not the same rock as Bin Laden) you have probably heard that Osama Bin Laden was killed by U.S special forces yesterday. This is where our story ends, but let's take a look at how it began.
The story begins on 9/11/2001, the twin towers in New York City and the Pentagon were attacked by a group of Hi jackers using airplanes as missiles. The twin towers were completely destroyed, killing thousands and putting a dent in the U.S economy that we are still currently recovering from.
Turns out this guy was behind it:
The President at the time, a true Patriot, vowed to hunt down Osama and bring justice to the reeling US.
For awhile, the entire country was behind the search and patriotism was at an all time high:
Much to the chagrin of the rallying nation, Osama was able to hide in caves, shacks and continued to control terrorist forces from with Pakistan's borders. Releasing videos and images of himself alive and well.
A new President was elected and also vowed to hunt down the elusive Bin Laden:
The taunting, antagonizing images and videos continued for 11 years until the U.S Special forces zeroed in on Osama whereabouts yesterday.
Suddenly, in a overwhelming turn of events President Obama, who was lagging behind in the popular opinion has now regained his status of coolest guy on earth.
Which leads us to the finale of this great tale and the question directed at all of us Amurricans.
Its a damn good question.
