Morally right?

So the world is jubilant because Osama Bin Lada, the number one terrorist responsible for the deaths of thousands, is dead.  And I suppose he had it coming.  He asked for it.  You cannot do things like that and get away with it forever……But.

Yes I have a ‘But’.   Is it morally right to rejoice about somebody’s death?    I mean with his death I also hope that it will end war, conflict, unrest and the deaths of innocent people in Iran/Pakistan/Iraq.  Indeed in the Arab world.  And that it will help  to establish peace in the region.

But can you return violence for violence, or death for death?  Doesn’t this actually make it worse.  Don’t the people who hate, hate more by now?

Well I am only asking?
