Lesson Learned? I doubt it.
As we mark the occasion of the passing of Mr. Bin Laden, I pause to understand something. Faced with confronting what he viewed as tyranny by the US and its allies, he chose to follow a path of hate and destruction. I wonder what he thought about the recent Arab uprisings which were largely non-violent, and featured no al-Qaida propaganda or pictures of Bin-Laden. Seems change can take place if enough people want it, and without violence. I'm wondering if this message will resound in our own culture, or in our foreign policy.
