Osama bin Laden is dead

While the news of this has probably spread worldwide by now, it wouldn't be fitting to not mention this event. An American force struck a compound in Pakistan and have killed Osama bin Laden. He was found in a compound in a sub-urban area approximately 35 miles from Islamabad. During the strike, no American forces were harmed despite one of the helicopters used in the strike having mechanical problems and having to be crash landed. Shortly after the media was informed of bin Laden's death, President Obama gave a speech to confirm the event.

Good thing that Obama had a way to "bury" Osama bin Laden at sea. Had that not been possible, if I was the President I would have had the body with a probe shot off to Neptune.

Why Neptune? Easy. Because Neptune requires a telescope to see, there is no "shrine in the sky" unlike Jupiter or Saturn (or even Neptune)and cremation by atmospheric entry will be achieved. Also, to satisfy even hardcore atheists like myself every atom of his body is off the face of Earth as well as his soul.

Why not the Sun, you ask? Again, easy. The body would burn up prematurely into individual atoms, and the solar wind would cause unwanted blowback as some atoms would return to Earth. You want the evil off the Earth. Period.

Launching the body into interstellar space entails the possibility of an atom of Osama bin Laden returning to Earth unless deliberately sent to a black hole. A launch to Alpha Centauri (the nearest star) entails the possibility of that star's solar wind blowback thousands of years later of an atom of evil. The farther the star the better. Give the body to Andromeda Galaxy if you don't want to infect Neptune.
