    People are mostly just acting out, but unfortunately, yeah, that is a lot of people.

    Is it wrong that I want to kiss you? :loveblush:

    ---

    Strategically, no this doesn't make a whole lot of difference. The fact however that this cretin has drawn breath for the last near-10 years is shameful, just like the fact there isn't a completed building at ground-zero is shameful. Afghanistan is unfortunately a lost cause (because it's Afghanistan :p), at least when we finally leave, this will feel like it wasn't a total waste, like we actually did ONE THING we set out to do. Sure, it's symbolism, but it's important to helping us finally get past 9/11. Not sure it's been worth the cost, but if the last guy had done his ****ing job and killed him in the first place, maybe the American people would have been willing to leave much sooner.

    ---

    As for rejoicing in a person's death, that doesn't normally happen to me. When we captured Saddam, I was elated. When we killed his sons and later when he was killed, I felt kinda sick at my stomach. I couldn't stand any of them, but I still didn't feel good about it all. They absolutely deserved what they got, but I'm human.

    The other day when we killed Gadhaffi's kid and grandkids, I felt bad. I know that taking him out would help the situation over there tremendously, but damn, his family, that's harsh. I don't disagree with the logic, but I'm human.

    This though, no sympathy. I feel no negative feelings about this. Nighty night, ****face. To any concerns about this stirring up a hornets nest, capturing him alive would have been orders of magnitude worse. There would have been hundreds or thousands people killed and/or taken hostage trying in vain to blackmail his release. He had to die. What would be preferable? Just let him go?

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    Bush Sr. was pretty popular in 1991

    election is going to be dictated by economic situation as usual, no number of entertaining speeches is going to fix voter confidence there

    but I did see that speech earlier and enjoyed it, more than the second speech, where the rhetoric rang a little hollow, America can do what it sets its mind to! it just takes ten years and billions of dollars

    this is awfully anti-climactic for me, I'm surprised Bin Laden was even still alive

    This is just amazing. :) If it's not propaganda. But the corpse seems to be of the right guy.

    No, video game.

    I think "disposing of the body" instantly was a really bad idea. Hitler got exhumed countless times so everyone could be sure.

    No, but war is about destroying the enemy's will to fight. This does so.
    Not really; there are punks that gloat over his death but that's not the same as rejoicing in this victory. By eliminating the figurehead, it assures many that Al Quaeda was indeed the "weak horse".
    Oh, sigh. I hope you enjoy your $15 gasoline and starving while America stupidly turns its corn crop into ethanol.
    The solution is force; waiting for the place to collapse under its own weight can't happen when the sort of shyte-for-brains types you adore keep it alive.

    It was a bit dubious with respect to international law, but it feels right. Congrats to the US for finally getting that bastard.

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?


    You got a Most Wanted terrorist hiding in Pakistan, while that country has claimed all along that they didn't know where he was. And then it turns out he wasn't even hiding in mountains or caves, but in a mansion-like compound right next to a military base. Add in to that fact that Pakistan is very unstable, and the world could end up having to deal with their nukes falling into the wrong hands if the gov't folds.

    I can understand why the U.S. was pissed when they found out he was not in Afghanistan but instead in Pakistan... but I do agree that there will repercussions from conducting that Team 6 strike inside foreign soil without even notifying their gov't.

    Our relationship with Pakistan might be strained already, but going in like that is gonna turn them against us permanently :O

    "World Champion Hide and Seek Player Killed"


    I hear Trump doesn't believe the guy's dead until he sees a long form death certificate.

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    lol!

    there are a couple of pages on facebook that you have the option of liking called:

    1.) "On a scale of Anne Frank to Osama bin Laden, how good was my hiding spot?"

    2.) "Osama bin Laden is dead! The lonest hide'n'seek game is over!"

    and for poos and giggles...
