Osama bin Laden's death is good for the war on terror. However, is cheering bin Laden's death like winning the World Cup a good thing? I do not think so. 

Forget for a minute that any death should never be celebrated as a good thing. Instead think about how you felt when you saw Muslims cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon. I know I was outraged that people were cheering the deaths of human beings. If you were outraged then think about how Muslims will view our cheering. I think you will find that cheering is not appropriate and could actually cause more harm than bin Laden's death alone.
