Osama is dead?

So, got the news (late) last night that Osama bin Laden is dead. I know there has been a lot of rejoicing in the streets and on social media. I just heard a live report from Ground Zero about the people celebrating there.

I realize the symbolic weight of such a 'victory', but does this actually make the world a safer place? No doubt, The #2 Al-Qaeda guy is probably already in place as the new organization head and it's not like this is going to bring our troops out of the Middle East all of a sudden or stop us from meddling in the sovereignty of other nations.

While I want to celebrate, I'm just reminded that really, it doesn't look like this will make that much of a difference.
