Was Thorin's efforts really in vain? *story spoilers*

This is just a thought I had this morning. In a few discussions some people said that Thorin didn't accomplish what he set out to do, but I don't think that's entirely correct. His efforts did, after all, lead to Smaug's destruction (granted, at a great cost), and Erebor was reclaimed for the Dwarves. In fact I read in another post that Bifur, Bofur and Bomber were still living in Erebor when Frodo went off to destroy the One Ring, and I'd guess that Gloin's family lived there, too. So, although Thorin died and didn't get to enjoy the fruits of his labor, others did.

On a personal note, I think it sucks that Fili & Kili were killed as well, such a waste. Sometimes I get real angry with authors for killing off characters that they should have kept alive - don't get me started on Harry Potter #7!Mad Yes, it's doubly tragic that Thorin had to see his nephews die before he did, especially as it was partially his fault due to his stubborness and greed, but still, totally unnecessary and didn't really add anything to the storyline. Just my opinion here.
