Beatification and canonisation of Pope John Paul II

Some argue that John Paul II beatification is premature in light of the role he played in the cover-up of abuse by priests .

Osama bin Laden Dead

Osama bin Laden dead, report U.S. officials

What does bin Laden’s death mean for his victims, war on terror and the Afghan adventure. It is certain that some of bin Laden’s victims may see his death as justice for the crimes perpetrated against them by him & his ilk. While politicians generally don’t see this event as an end to the threat posed by al-Qaeda & its minions to world security so the war goes on. Does this mean Afghanistan is still unavoidable to reduce the threat of Islamism?
