I think we could focus more on the aftermath of this occurrence...
(Osama's death.. For those who don't know..)

Will this cause an uproar of retaliation from Islamic extremists?
Or will terror plots die down due to the loss of a key leader?

I just want to hear both sides of the argument.
Have they been operating without him all of this time ( considering the fact that he was is hiding)?
Is he vital to their cause?

(please) Discuss. Respectfully.

--------EDIT----------
More specifically- on the U.S.
Al Quada (spelling)
Will terror plots on the U.S. and her allies increase?

Terrorism is such a broad and general term, and there are so many different groups of terrorists, even among Islamic extremists.

You'll have to be quite a bit more specific.

I think I can safely assume that you are referring to the group of terrorists that Osama bin Laden led. If this is the case, then yes, I believe that plots will increase, at least for a while. This group of Islams are powerful. They aren't going to give up just because of their loss of a leader. They will elect a new one, possibly fight for it, and prove to Americans (who are celebrating what they so ignorantly think of as the end of terrorism--same kind of think Kyllorac made me think of. When we think of terrorists, Americans think of bin Laden and the Twin Towers. With our stereotype image gone, people are thinking that terrorism is gone.) that they are still there and still powerful. Which they are. This isn't over, people. They will retaliate and they will fight back. They aren't afraid. The American government has already legitimized their existence by declaring "war on terrrorism". Yes, Osama is dead, but what kind of strong organization like that dissolved because of a loss of a leader?
Shakespearian tongue-twister:

To sit in solemn silence
In a dark, dank dock
In a pestilential prison
With a lifelong lock;
Awaiting the sensation
Of a short, sharp shock
Of a cheap, chippy chopper
On a big black block.

You have no representation against a world that invades your region.

What do you think?

I provided a fine enough reason. The result of recent events is obvious. Why is this shocking?

That has nothing to do with your original question. Are you going to respond to my own raised concern in this topic?

In the short term, there will be less attacks on the United States and her allies. By killing a key leader and grabbing lots of information on the Al Quada, the US has gained the upper hand in dealing with Al Quada. Any operations they had have been compromised, or could have been compromised. So the terrorists will have to go underground and plan new operations, which takes a long time.

Provided enough time and sanctuary, the terrorist group will resume it's attacks on the US and her allies. But this may take some months.
