Very good news. But this doesn't end anything. We must still fight the fight.

I had long assumed he was dead, so I'm unphased.

Found the following comment at the end of a Reuters story today on the death of bin Laden and thought it was good enough to share:

Quote:
How appropriate that the last thing Bin Laden saw was an American pointing a weapon at him and firing the bullet into his head that ended his miserable, hateful life. Priceless.

Right.. right.

Guys, like the "Red Scares" (and Star Wars lol) Osama is part of a phantom menace. He's probably sipping a martini on a beach next to Rumsfeld at this moment. Why in tarnation would you gentlemen
believe a damn thing the corporate media reports? A media that is owned and controlled by the same folks who planned and are causing the destruction of our country.

Please stop.. take off the red, white, and blue colored sun glasses for a minute. The CIA trained Osama and his thugs to fight in Afghanistan.. not unlike Saddam who was also one of our
guys! For crying out loud Osama's family's connections to the Bushes and Saudi royal family are well documented.

The CIA sponsored the Taliban!! Please realize that the Bin Laden family belongs to a different sect of Islam, an off shoot of Suni Islam which is the state religion of Saudi Arabia.
The wealthy businessmen (sheiks) of Saudi Arabia fund all anti-American and anti-Israel terrorism. It's all a game that our leaders are in on, a game designed to keep the public scared.

The Bush family is involved in all of this. They believe in "profits before patriotism." How do they earn billions? Oil, defense contracting, banking. Connect the dots. The elite get what they want by
any means necessary. They have no morals, no loyalties. Prescott Bush extended credit to Hitler for cat sakes.

You lack evidence to support your theory.

If it is so well documented, then perhaps you can provide examples of such documentation for us to view. Otherwise, you lack evidence to support your theory.

The world is a better place without him but to celebrate with such vigor only lowers us closer to the level of him and his radical Islam followers IMHO.

I agree. I'm glad he'd dead but I wouldn't celebrate that any more than I would if I had to kill a varmint in the yard. Just something that had to be done.

Celebrations were a bit too reminiscent of when the radicals dragged the bodies of Americans through the streets.

Conspiracy theorists such as you really crease me up.
I haven't had such a good laugh in ages.
Thank you

I'm assuming this was written with heavy sarcasm.

As I pen this the radio is holding a phone-in about whether or not the pictures should be published. The occasional 'Ollie' is coming on but is rapidly being put in their place by other's scorn.
In general there is praise and admiration for the USA's action, tempered with the view that his death does not signal the end of terrorism.

We have read similar drivel too often from Ollie in the past.

Fraid Ihave to agree with Bertie here. Ollie, my man, do you know that you appear way out there with this stuff?

AZ is, as always, spot on. Our humanity is what separates us from the uncivilized heathens of history. We need to be glad to rise above those vicious animals who pride themselves in the grusome behaviors. This is exactly why our torture of people goes against our values and needs not to be part of our behaviors as a people.

Well, Ollie will point out it's not like there are videos of Bin Laden specifically taking "credit" for the hijackings and mass murders ...

Oh, wait.

But I mean, his actions are solely related to the fact that the evil Satan George W. Bush was president, and it is not as if he tried to bring down one of the trade center buildings in 1993 ...

Hold up.

So, Ollie, I guess that your theory is as follows:

  • bin Ladin was working with Bush on the 2001 attacks.
  • He was also apparently working with Clinton on the 1993 attack.
  • And with Clinton on the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole.
  • So, he worked with two U.S. Presidents over a span of at least eight years, to murder U.S. citizens with the knowledge and complicity of these Presidents and their advisors.
  • Yet somehow, this has remained secret and no document, witness or evidence supporting your theory has been provided.
  • Meanwhile, bin Ladin repeatedly issues videotapes claiming credit for the attacks and killings, putting his life in jeopardy in the process.

Is that about right?
