Shall We Rejoice?

It's been 60+ years since our country has enjoyed a similar victory (death of Hitler/end of WWII). Should they not have rejoiced at that mass-murderer's death?  Slaughtered millions are worth patriotic cries, but butchered thousands should be met with mere solemnity? Please.

After all - Moses after crossing the Sea could hardly contain his grief and solemn words of warning to his rejoicing Israelite populace - how dare they rejoice at the death of the Egyptian army - don't they know that God hates for the wicked to perish? ("drip-drip" goes the sound of the sarcasm faucet...)
