    Have to agree. There is definitely going to be some retaliation of some sort. Even it is not military. Relations will be strained for a while.... But like you said, it is hard to argue against the need to do this, even if it is pushing the boundaries.

    As I said, it feels right. It was a violation of international law, but I don't believe that international laws are that effective anyway. At the end, nothing but "might is right" and "the ends justify the means" works in international affairs, so if the advantages of violating international law outweigh the disadvantages, it will be broken.

    :rolf: Gangsta!

    I imagine he meant less like this:

    and more like this:

    DEATH TO THE XENOMORPHS!!

    He had no internet and never left the compound, so I'm sure his porn stash was quite substantial! He probably even had the complete 2 girls 1 cup movie!

    :jig:

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    how do you get to see 2girls 1cup w/o internet access?

    /boggle

    maybe it was a Pakistani re-enactment of the famous movie, using goats instead of girls.

    please grow up and learn to distinguish between showing disrespect to one dispicable individual, and insulting an entire faith of largely decent upsatnding people.

    Wouldn't 'documented carnal knowledge' count as both? :grin:

    The video on the internet is just a trailer for an actual movie. *shivers*

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    boo! that one's not funny.

    Normally this type of comment would warrant my support, but I think they put too much effort into respecting his religion, when Osama himself was a terrible person, and anyone that says he was a good muslim who deserves a proper burial is wrong (or worse). So yeah, maybe not wrap in bacon, but certainly I would not have worried about the 24 our rule, and I certainly wouldn't have washed him.

    I do think it clever to not bomb him, but instead collect evidence of his death. I also give props for dumping him at sea, not giving his followers a shrine was a good call. All in all props to Obama if he really did make all the suggestions they say he did.

    I prefer to call them "international guidelines". Screw anything put out by the UN. They take our money, and then let the Libyans vote on the security council. Besides the Pakistanis weren't doing anything about it. I think we should ask for our nearly 4 Billion in aid back. OBL was chillin' in a suburb of their capital.

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    I think the sea burial is a rather dubious way of presenting or producing irreversible facts. Some people might ask themselves if the burial really happened or if his really dead. Maybe the US are currently interrogating him and when they are done with him, they put a bullet through his head and cremate him, let him rot in a prison cell or whatever.

    That's just an example of a speculation which might be circulating soon (or already). I don't actually believe it myself, but it's not completely implausible as well. The US doesn't have to present evidence for anything, but if they are willing to convince wary people, they will have to present something with more substance than a speech of Obama and mere words from officials.

    Re: Osama bin Laden dead?

    I, too, was interested in this aspect of the story. How would desecration of his body specifically via his supposed religious beliefs be an insult to an entire faith? Particuarly if, as we have been told ad nauseum, that Bin Laden was <damaging> to Islam and <didn't> represent it in any fashion? Considering the glee with which Muslims take to desecration of other faiths, I find this claim disingenuous at a minimum.

    Seems to me that there's a lot of people wanting to have their cake and eat it too. Personally I know that there's far more Muslims like this guy than those who earnestly believe that OBL was a vile, subhuman, goat-fecker who should burn in hell for all eternity. When these people still assert that the J00z are responsible for 9/11, and that adulterous women should be stoned to death, is it really such a leap?
