Osama Bin Laden has finally been killed! Took about ten years, far too long in my opinion. They had previously thought that Bin Laden was hiding out among tribal groups in the mountainous regions in Pakistan or Afghanistan, but he turned out at the end to be living in a mansion in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which is 93 miles north of Islamabad. From my understanding a small team went in and Bin Laden was shot in the head. DNA from Bin Laden's body, compared with DNA samples on record from his dead sister, confirmed Bin Laden's identity.

Bush was so smart not letting that happen during his term, if it's true. It would have ruined his business relationship with his oil buddies & he knew it. So, he pushed Osama into the hills, to get him out of the way & it worked. Bush couldn't make a decent speech but he was smart enough to do that.

Took way too long. Probably not becoming to be happy that somebody died, but in this case -- three cheers for the peeps that killed him!

It's been so long, I wouldn't be surprised if 25% of the people I hear talk about this today hear it wrong and think Obama was killed.

It's just a shame that so many Americans had to die for this one idiot to be finally killed.

Mad props to Seal Team 6.

He may be dead but the war is far from over. This one man may be dead but there are still many followers and a lot of angry people. even with him dead USA will still not return home as there is too much money to protect which was the reason in the first place. this was a delayed death with rubble in it's path.

I'm not much for arguing politics, but I'm also not sure this is true. Too many things don't make sense:

"In Islam, the body has to be buried in 24 hours". And so to avoid conflict, they buried him within 24 hours.

However, according to muslim Shari Law:
"Sea burials are permissible for Muslims in extraordinary circumstances...", "...one is during a long voyage where the body may decompose and pose a health hazard to a ship's passengers".

These two facts defeat each other. Also, logic dictates that regardless of how one treats an extremist dead leader, it won't matter to those who follow that leader whether you treat their body with respect. The followers will either fight harder, or give up. It's impossible for the enemy to convince said followers not to be enraged that their leader was killed by their enemy.

Another point, (this one isn't nearly as strong as the above, so I'm not firm on it) Osama had kidney failure and was on dialysis...11 YEARS AGO.
http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=20000325&slug=4011843

Average life expectancy for kidney failure WITH dialysis is 5 years.

Personally, I think he's been dead for a while. Still killed by our men, but several years ago. I just find it sort of convenient timing what with re-elections around the corner.

Okay, I'll get off my conspiracy-theorist soap box now.

Do you think America was actually going to follow their burial laws?

Don, that's precisely my point. No they wouldn't, but what the government officials are saying is that they semi-followed the burial laws, which makes no sense. Also, they've decided they won't be posting any pictures. No pictures, an extremely small portion of people supposedly knew about the operation, all but the president and head of CIA being ones who's names have been released, a burial in an area where there's no chance of excavation. Basically they've said "we killed him, but we're not going to show any proof - and in fact hide all evidence that it happened".

That's ok. I don't want any pictures of the operation. I didn't read any articles or watch any reports. They should stop showing pictures of WWII, as well.

Most Americans are happy. They always like to see someone get killed. It doesn't matter who it is, a black, a jew, a muslim...it doesn't matter, as long as someone was killed, they feel good.

"Paranoia is just another word for ignorance." Hunter S Thompson. Why can people not just enjoy the moment and trust that he is dead? You're taking an extraordinary achievement and *peach* it up for everyone by doubting that he is dead with your whacko conspiracy theories. I also do want to see a picture of the body, but only because on 9/11 every tv station was broadcasting pictures of people jumping to their death out of the World Trade Center. Last night Jon Stewart said it best too, there is no need to keep them from us because they are "gruesome" because we see pictures of dead bodies every day when we watch the news and see reports of car bombs and stuff, and how can we truly know the horrors of war if we don't see it.

I gotta give props to the SEAL team that did this too. In only 40 minutes they went into the compound and clear it, killed Bin Laden and recovered his body (and probably the other bodies as well), interrogated the other people there and made arrests, collected a butt load of intelligence, and dealt with a crashed helicopter...all with zero casualties of their own and virtually no collateral damage. In 40 minutes! Thats pretty damn impressive.

Did you read my post at all? Or just reactively reply?

Also, Hunter S. Thompson shot himself in the head and had his ashes shot from a canon for his funeral. Are you seriously quoting a drug-addicted insane man about paranoia?

Well even JFK dead pictures we can see. I don't know where is the logic of not showing one single snapshot of the body, at least 200 meters away is fine.

I did read your post and my point was that everyone is speculating on how and when he died rather than just taking comfort in the fact that he is actually gone. And yes, I am seriously going to quote a drug addict about paranoia. Let me use a youtube video to show you why people on drugs don't get the credit they deserve, and coincidentally people not on drugs get too much credit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J10w3FuCwfQ (has lots of profanity, so if you are hyper sensitive be ready for it)

Anyway, Al-Qaida confirmed his death and is now vowing that we will pay for our actions. Loads of fun.

Whether he died in the covert operation or not is really a moot point. Maybe he did die years ago due to his kidney problem but then again maybe not. I personally know a woman who has terminal cancer whose doctor said she should have died last year. Then about a month ago said she had a week to live. She is still alive and shows no signs of dying.

Al-Qaida always vows that we "pay for our actions."

True, we can **** a place up pretty darn good and that causes incredible suffering to a lot of innocent people. However, we try our best to not harm the innocents and we go above and beyond to rebuild what we destroy, usually leaving a place better than when we arrived.

Al-Qaida just hurts everyone, even themselves, regardless of perceived innocence or guilt. They don't even believe their own religious malarkey, they use it to recruit the feeble minded to take all the risk and do their dirty work.

Bin Laden most certainly didn't believe in that Islamic extremist stuff either.

All of it is one big scam. Al-Qaida is like the ALF (Animal Liberation Front) and the Muslim Brotherhood is like PETA. They are technically one in the same organization, except ALF does all the terrorist stuff and PETA just reaps the progress.

Al-Qaida wants a world-dominating Muslim nation. The Muslim Brotherhood wants the same thing. This is all a front so the Muslim Nations can have plausible deniability.

It's the same reason wars have been fought since the dawn of time.

The US/UN does it too. We go around policing the world and push for worldwide democracy. China/North Korea go around trying to push oppressive Communism. The EU goes around pushing Marxism under the guise of some neo-conservative socialistic democracy. England goes around pushing a constitutional monarchy.

The ONLY countries in this world that are content with themselves and have no agenda are Canada and Australia.

I hear a lot from Australia .. Canada, not so. If any one of you from Australia, please tell your government to not build the LYNAS nuclear power plant in Malaysia. Hell, make me breaks my nerves. The Malaysian government is so stupid, they would do anything, as long as they "government" get a load sum of income, ignoring the citizens health. There were already innocent residents died from leukaemia decades ago due to Japanese nuclear project back here in Malaysia. The poor had no choice but to work, they were kind of deceived. Look they're weak, no options. Some were single mother and now the child is a retard due to exposure to the nuclear when the mother was pregnant and working in the factory, then.
