i'm always sadden to see a person die.
the way this was done will NOT help our relation with Pakistan,
and does nothing to cure the underlying issues that makes people terrorists.
like the saudi royal family.
If there was one US action in Pakistan to not get the people pissed this would be it, Osama is accepted around the world as someone who directly attacked America. Drone strikes or intel operatives when discovered cause issues but this will be nothing but a blip and could be welcome in Pakistan, remember Al Queda has close ties to the Pakistani Taliban who have killed countless civilians and tried to take over the whole country just a little while back.
And people now know they don't need to be terrorists to take down a government like the royal family, for proof they can look to the West at Tunisia, Egypt, or to their southern border with Yemen.
there will be many people in Pakistan,
who will dislike that a supposed ally, the USA,
acted alone, instead of letting the Pakistani government
handle it. (Yes, you can outline the reasons why this was
the strategic thing to do, but it won't change how those
Pakistanis feel about how their sovereignty was violated.
Even if, as Obama implied, he had the consent of a few of
Pakistan's senior leaders. And those leaders will take even
more heat for letting the USA do this to Pakistan.)Understanding the motivations of others is invaluable in
diplomacy and statecraft.
Sigh, of the countries you mention, Tunisia has the best chance
of the people getting what they want. And you haven't mentioned
the 'failures' in Libya, Iran, Syria, Bahrain,
and all the others who haven't gone up against their dictator's guns yet.I suggest you read some Bismarck and Kissinger.
Attempting real change without understanding reality is much less likely
to get you anywhere.
