Osama bin Laden killed

Very fitting, that the last people he ever saw were SEALs and spooks, come to put a bullet in his eye. Fitting, too, that some of his number died hiding behind a woman. Well done, guys! Have some Shakespeare:

The period of thy tyranny approacheth.
On us thou canst not enter but by death;
For, I protest, we are well fortified
And strong enough to issue out and fight:[...]
On either hand thee there are squadrons pitch'd,
To wall thee from the liberty of flight;
And no way canst thou turn thee for redress,
But death doth front thee with apparent spoil
And pale destruction meets thee in the face.
-- 1 Henry VI
