Is celebration really appropriate?

I'm disturbed by the dancing in the streets.

Here's something from the response of Veteran's for Peace that I read right here:

Imagine the propaganda that the U.S. media could make of video footage of a foreign country where the primitive brutes are dancing in the streets to celebrate the murder of a tribal enemy. That is the propaganda we've just handed those who will view bin Laden as a martyr. When their revenge comes, we will know exactly what we are supposed to do: exact more revenge in turn to keep the cycle going.

And let us not forget this passage from Proverbs 24:

Do not rejoice when your enemies fall,
and do not let your heart be glad when they stumble,
or else the LORD will see it and be displeased...

Some things to think about, that's all.
