Bin Laden killed

Osama Bin Laden, the head of Al-Qaeda, he had changed the world with his fight vs. the US – and the United States of America changed the world with the fight vs. terrorism. A reason now for Barack Obama to withdrawal US-troops from Afghanistan? It has been expensive enough – both: money and death toll on both sides. Or will the Washington administration continue to fight vs. the al-Qaeda hydra in more and more countries?

P.S.:
I am amused, to find a quotation of the old Greek historian Thucydides in a modern political blog – visit jacobbreach.wordpress.com: “A nation that draws too broad a difference between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting done by fools.” -Thucydides – frizz-comment: I fear, no one in the United States or in Arabian nations will hesitate to walk their usual line. Greek philosophy is without any influence. Sad.

Strange, that I put this Thucydides quotation on my front-page? Sorry, that I studied 7 years ancient Greek. But what is the best interpretation? University intelligence must support the development of military technologies? Or military headquarters must learn new strategies? More hesitating? More acceptance of strange cultures? Staying home as a clever strategy? I loved some statements of Socrates and Epicurus, yes, and Thucydides too…
