Osama's death and Asia
 
"As Americans celebrate the killing of Osama bin Laden, Asians and others maybe more cautious about the party," notes Simon Tay. 
 
"Reprisals are predicted and network terrorism means this can happen in many different places and ways. More fundamentally, America needs to be conscious that celebrations must not spill over into trumpeting triumphalism. The sense must be that justice has been served and not that vengeance is been wreaked. Relations with the Muslim world will otherwise be affected especially and Americans, now involved militarily in three Muslim countries -- Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya -- need to be mindful."


 
Professor Simon TAY is the Chairman of the Singapore Institute of International Affairs. He is a professor at the Law faculty and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore [bio].

Osama Bin Laden's Death
 
"The death of Osama Bin Laden was greeted with cheers and celebrations in the United States and elsewhere," says Ho Seng Chee. 
 
"But is there really cause for celebration?"
 
"It is widely acknowledged that Osama had increasingly little control over Al Qaeda cells and individuals when alive. In killing him, the US has now made Osama a martyr among terrorists. Could dying thus have made him a greater figurehead for terrorists? Regardless, whatever actual control Osama had is now gone, and the result is likely greater unpredictability."
 
"On the other hand, the US could not have possibly left Osama alone and risked him planning other attacks either. Osama's killing was therefore inevitable. Its impact on the fight against global terrorism, however, could be neutral at best."
 
 
Mr. HO Seng Chee is an SIIA Council Member, and also the Joint Company Secretary of the Manager and Group Chief, Corporate Services of Mapletree Investments. [bio]
