2 quotes that seem appropriate this morning

"We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the b@stards who started it." -General George S. Patton

"I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." - Mark Twain

Do you really think the radical Muslims will just stop fighting and go home? Don't bet on it for a micro-second. They're going to ramp up their anger and I suspect they'll go ape shyte in the coming months. I just hope our people are able to fend off the wave of suicide bombers that will be trying to avenge his death. The threat level was raised after the announcement for good reason- these nut jobs will not go away.

They are already home. So, is there a reason they conveniently dumped his body in the ocean....assuming it was him. I mean, you kill the guy you have been after for 10 years with the most powerful military force in the history of mankind, then you get rid of the body right away? Doesn't make sense. I know it is early in this so I haven't dug into it, but this expedited disposal of his body just puts up red flags to me. :confused:

I was up at 3:30 and the report said that he was treated in the Muslim tradition and buried at sea. I think it's odd, too, but the photo of his face after the raid did look an awful lot like him. Well, other than the destroyed eyes, bullet holes and mess. The photos and videos of him over the years showed that he had stained teeth and the death photo showed that they were very white- that concerns me but he was rich enough that he could afford high quality dental care so,....

Stating that he has been buried at sea could just be a diversionary tactic to draw out the new leader and his minions, too. Now, they have to get al Zawahiri.

He was buried at sea because Saudi Arabia his "homeland" was offered his body and they told us No Thanks

I too believe pork entrails would be a fitting wrap for his remains. Maybe we should round up the plauge of wild pigs in the US, put them on a C-17 and air drop them to muslim extremist

I'll admit I had my doubts too, but there's no way they would take a chance on this. All binladen would have to do is appear somewhere and this administration goes down in flames. If he's not dead, he's in some secure location being tortured. Either way is ok by me

Sensationalism at its best!!

"Wasn't charged"? He was considered to have masterminded the '93 World Trade Center AND 9-11 attacks, as well as the USS Cole, Lebanese barracks and the embassy bombings. He had a $25M bounty on his head. The fact that he "wasn't charged" in a US court doesn't matter because he didn't plan the attacks here, he didn't actually carry them out and he has never been in the US, AFAIK. There's no extradition treaties with most countries when it comes to terrorist attacks and we were foiled by Congress and peoples' attitudes when it came to going in and getting him. Pakistanis wouldn't have helped much if at all, the only tribal leaders who would have were already PO'd at OBL and he's still seen as a hero, so getting people to trust the US beyond the current limits would have been almost impossible.

Some quotes from Obama's two books! How American's can be so blind is beyond me!

I bought and read Audacity of Hope. It was difficult to read considering his attitude toward us and everything American. Let me add a phrase he use to describe his attitude toward whites. He harbors a "COIL OF RAGE". His words not mine.

Is anyone out there awake?

Everyone of voting age should read these two books: Don't buy them, just get them from the library.


From Dreams From My Father:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

From Dreams From My Father :
"I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

From Dreams From My Father:
"There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."

From Dreams From My Father:

"It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

From Dreams From My Father:

"I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

And FINALLY ............ and most scary:

From Audacity of Hope:

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Yes, I think there's a difference in what you call it. Diplomacy is important in an ongoing war. It benefits our servicemen and women not to anger more religious zealots than already despise the United States. We ought not worry about angering those that do since they will not be satisfied regardless of what we do (and, indeed, they're not' they're mad because his head isn't bobbing toward Mecca). No reason to worry about them other than to make sure our troops are alert and prepared and keeping their heads on a swivel to protect themselves.

The goal is, of course, have this appear as it is, a matter of justice as opposed to a holy war. So we have him on the open sea, nobody really wants to have him on the boat, they have the Islamic cleric or equivalent go through the rituals of that faith or see that they are done and the formalities are taken, and the body is dumped over the side.

From there, if the sharks rip it to pieces, so be it. Sharks will be sharks. The fact that there is no grave, of course, benefits us and surely played a huge part in the decision to deep six him. Having him under dry land is nothing but trouble.

IIRC, some of OBL's relatives gave their DNA not long after 9-11, possibly as a condition of them being taken out of the US so quickly and because of that, the US was able to determine if the person killed is related. I wouldn't be surprised that the US and some other countries have equipment that can match DNA in such a short time.

So what you're saying is just let Saddam run all over the middle east killing people like Hitler and just sit back and watch him do it.

We did that once before and it took far to long to get involved back then. We learned. Maybe you should do some learning too.

Hopefully your country grows some fu cking back bone and does something for someone else at some point.

Until then, just be the coward you are. PERIOD!

Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked you in the first place?
They attacked you because you've been over there bombing Iraq for the last 15-20yrs.

I'm not going to get in the way of your internet fight, but 15--20 years bombing Iraq? How is that even remotely accurate. I'm not sure if Iran was even shooting in their direction that long. I think you may have meant to say that Bin Laden was terribly offended that American soldiers were allowed to set foot in Saudi Arabia during the period of months that comprised Desert Storm.

Again, you guys go have your internet fight. But let's try to get a little close with the facts. I'd hate to have someone citing this for a future internet duel.

The United States and many other nations were there with the permission of the Saudi government trying to push the Iraqi army out of Kuwait after it invaded Kuwait in 1990.

So your point is that the United States had it coming for setting foot in Saudi Arabia with that government's permission for that purpose?

Just want to be sure.


Because, you know,


(Wait for it).



(Here it comes).



The other countries that participated in Desert Storm were, to name a few, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Australia, New Zealand, France, Britain, Spain, Greece, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, and Canada.

Bin Laden's supposed grounds for his war on this country was effective in convincing a lot of people to goose step behind him. But those grounds were, to oversimplify it, a personal problem.

And he got what he deserved in the end.

I thought we were talking about Saudi Arabia. You're back in Iraq. Bin Laden was pissed off about our being in Saudi Arabia, not Iraq. What's more, Bin Laden wasn't exactly friendly with Sadaam, who, in addition to being a horrible despot, was a secular ruler whose beliefs were not in line with Bin Laden's Islamic ideal state. But no reason to iterate. I am not going to try to interpret this argument further. If you want to rationalize the nonsensical actions of a terrorist or urge that my home country isn't entitled to declare his actions against us to be awful, troll on.

There is a lot of ignorance and arrogance afoot in this world. It can get pretty nauseating as can inaccurate hyperbole. Irony of the previous statement in this instance aside, I will take this opportunity to declare that I'm not a warmonger, I don't think Middle Easterners are inherently evil, and I do NOT watch Fox News.

I typically don't even bother posting in any remotely political threads, but what you posted was so far removed from historical fact that I got sucked in.

This is not an illogical truism.

But, it this instance, the thing that was noted to have set Bin Laden off was not our kicking Iraq around in defense of Kuwait in 1991. It was the mere fact that U.S. soldiers were present in Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that they were there with permission from the Saudi government. It was less about our farking with others than it was about his personal religious beliefs that infidels should not be on the holy ground of Saudi Arabia, despite what Saudi Arabia's leaders feelings to the contrary. It was not, at least in origin, about our farking with another country apart for leaving footprints.

WASHINGTON – Knowing there would be disbelievers, the U.S. says it used convincing means to confirm Osama bin Laden's identity during and after the firefight that killed him. But the mystique that surrounded the terrorist chieftain in life is persisting in death.
Was it really him? How do we know? Where are the pictures?
Already, those questions are spreading in Pakistan and surely beyond. In the absence of photos and with his body given up to the sea, many people don't believe bin Laden — the Great Emir to some, the fabled escape artist of the Tora Bora mountains to foe and friend alike — is really dead.
U.S. officials are balancing that skepticism with the sensitivities that might be inflamed by showing images they say they have of the dead al-Qaida leader and video of his burial at sea. Still, it appeared likely that photographic evidence would be produced.
"We are going to do everything we can to make sure that nobody has any basis to try to deny that we got Osama bin Laden," John Brennan, President Barack Obama's counterterrorism adviser, said Monday. He said the U.S. will "share what we can because we want to make sure that not only the American people but the world understand exactly what happened."

Do you know the difference between a Sunni or Shia? Also, did you know they see all of Western countries as the enemy, to include you? If given the chance they would kill Canadians in the street without regard to what level of participation in the war they've had. I think you don't have any clue as to what the war is about or why it is going on.

I would say up until the time you saw this thread you couldn't care less about the war or your Canadian Soldiers who have given their lives to this effort to end world terrorism.

So, OBL should have been allowed to just live where he wanted, do what he wanted, and not be prosecuted? Are you insane? His own country didn't want him living there and other than countries where the government and a large number of people were sympathetic to his cause, he wasn't going to be pursued. Yemen and Syria didn't want him- what does that tell you?

You think the US deserved what we got AND think OBL got what he deserved? Pick one- you can't have it both ways.

FYI- "getting ready to go to war" is the same as having a standing military, which Canada and most other countries have. If you were to ask, only a small percentage of US citizens actually wanted the US to go to war. It's not the majority of Middle Eastern people who are the problem and it's not the goal of most of us to see the US in combat.

"Dime a dozen"? You're being awfully generous. As Gov. and Presidential candidate George Wallace said about Democrats and Republicans, "There's not a dime's worth of difference between them". The problem is that the people who want to be in government aren't the ones we need and the ones we need don't want to be in government.

Yes, I think there's a difference in what you call it. Diplomacy is important in an ongoing war. It benefits our servicemen and women not to anger more religious zealots than already despise the United States. We ought not worry about angering those that do since they will not be satisfied regardless of what we do (and, indeed, they're not' they're mad because his head isn't bobbing toward Mecca). No reason to worry about them other than to make sure our troops are alert and prepared and keeping their heads on a swivel to protect themselves.

The goal is, of course, have this appear as it is, a matter of justice as opposed to a holy war. So we have him on the open sea, nobody really wants to have him on the boat, they have the Islamic cleric or equivalent go through the rituals of that faith or see that they are done and the formalities are taken, and the body is dumped over the side.

From there, if the sharks rip it to pieces, so be it. Sharks will be sharks. The fact that there is no grave, of course, benefits us and surely played a huge part in the decision to deep six him. Having him under dry land is nothing but trouble.

With a political bend such as this I would guess you only get your "facts" from your state run liberal left news or from CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC. Why not broaden your knowledge and seek the truth by getting the news from many varied sources then you could be far more informed. I find it funny when people have such hate for Fox news, is it because they make you think or they report more than just opinion, Watch NBC and see if they ever fairly or accurately report any event in the word, they don't because all they do is try and show their hero obama in a good light.

Do you know the difference between a Sunni or Shia? Also, did you know they see all of Western countries as the enemy, to include you? If given the chance they would kill Canadians in the street without regard to what level of participation in the war they've had. I think you don't have any clue as to what the war is about or why it is going on.

Personally I know you're just a troll and have no agenda other then trying to start crap. I would say up until the time you saw this thread you couldn't care less about the war or your Canadian Soldiers who have given their lives to this effort to end world terrorism. You're just some guy that goes about his life not giving a crap about anyone other then himself.

And still, for the record, keep your @ss out of the US and do not buy our products. Make a stand for what you believe in. boycott the hell out of us. Oh wait, that would impact you and you can't really be bothered with making a stand against evil, can you? Grow some back bone dude. Do something about the evil that is the USA.

Good day!

Oh and in general, I like Canada and have met some nice Canadians. You're just not one of them.

What products? Bullets and bombs? We don't make anything anymore.

Sometimes people don't have the facts and would rather make them up to fit their own BILL, just like politicians lol.

I don't know what role Canada had in the GWOT but there were some countries that were "part" of the force that didn't see any combat. South Korea is one of them. The entire South Korean force was in Arbil Iraq and operated a UN Compound.

With a political bend such as this I would guess you only get your "facts" from your state run liberal left news or from CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC. Why not broaden your knowledge and seek the truth by getting the news from many varied sources then you could be far more informed. I find it funny when people have such hate for Fox news, is it because they make you think or they report more than just opinion, Watch NBC and see if they ever fairly or accurately report any event in the word, they don't because all they do is try and show their hero obama in a good light.

Obama didn't kill OBL. He did not succeed[] in anything. Last I check[ed] Obama didn't fast rope into anywhere. The [Seal 6] Operator that pulled the trigger succeeded.

Without stretching this analogy out too far, you do believe Bin Laden was responsible for the 2001 attacks on this country as well as other attacks even though he was thousands of miles from where they took place, correct?

It's not as if anyone here is arguing that Obama pulled the trigger any more than Truman piloted the Enola Gay.

That aside, I am grateful that the decision was made to carry out this mission in the boots on the ground, eyes on the target, bullet in the head style in which it was carried out. Great credit and praise is due as well to the brave men who carried out the mission and their higher ups who planned it and trained them, not to mention the families of these fine people who support them. I am happy that the option to use a drone or a cruise missile was not chosen. Moreover, I am thankful that this mission was not outsourced to the Pakistani military. The world is a better place today as a results of all of the actions by all of those involved in this operation at every level.

None of us needs to see OBL's corpse and it really won't make a difference if we believe he's dead, or not. That's the nature of covert operations and unlike all of the "spoken on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to comment" BS because PEOPLE CAN'T STFU WHEN THEY KNOW SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL, the people who carried this out know when they should speak, and when they shouldn't.

That was a movie. It's not real. Hitler killed himself, his bunker was bombed and they found the bodies later. Most US military wouldn't have unloaded their weapons into a corpse, regardless of whose corpse it was.

If this had been outsourced to the Pakistani military, OBL would surely be alive and laughing himself silly at the headlines. Every time the US was close to him in the last 6 years, someone from the Pakistani military would let him know in advance and he got away. If Pakistan didn't know where he was, they're completely helpless. They knew and they need to be held accountable. Musharraf needs to be prosecuted and removed. That building is estimated as being 8 times larger than any other in the area. The US knew about the compound but not who was there. To me, it looked like it could have been used for something other than a residence and after seeing the video of the interior (it was a mess and not because of the raid), the media calling it a "mansion with a value of $1M" is a load.

For those that don't know, Canada entered the war way before the US did. My Grandfather is 94 years old and still won't talk about the war and what he witnessed on the ground but he takes great pride in what they accomplished and never taking any credit for it.

For those that don't know, Canada entered the war way before the US did. My Grandfather is 94 years old and still won't talk about the war and what he witnessed on the ground but he takes great pride in what they accomplished and never taking any credit for it. I think some should choose their words wisely before commenting on those from the "Greatest Generation" which includes our friends and family from the north.
He would never ask for your praise, just some respect........you can't imagine the amount of pride he has for both Canada and the USA.

Great post Forrest. My grandfather, who passed away this past December, served and fought in WWII. Spent a year in a German POW camp after his aircraft was shot down over occupied Europe. He keep a journal of each day he was there. Hate to think that there are some that aren't educated to know that both Canada and the US played major rolls in that war... seems that it's truely an injustice to those that gave everything they had for the greater good.

/cheers to your granddad. A true hero he is and please thank him for me. For not for his kind we'd all be in a far worse place.

Thanks!

Agreed - this world we enjoy today would be quite different if it weren't for the efforts and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation.

Scott - sorry to hear about your Grandfather. It is sad to think there will be a time when the true heros from this generation will be gone.

The fool would be the person assuming something without having a clue Sir.


Feel free to side with the traitors in this country who enjoy portraying our brave men and women in the military as cold blooded killers of innocent people, I choose to believe the truth.

I'm getting wore out on this discussion as it is going in circles...but TX this comment is directly out of the hannity playbook of hiding behind the support for the troops. Of course we support the troops as they are people, our people. What is the TRUTH here is you refuse to believe innocent people have paid the price for our actions. People that have no argument with us whatsoever, now their lives have been destroyed or drastically been changed. And they are people, who put their shoes on one at a time, just like you and me. If you can't see that, I can't help you brother.

I can say this for sure, we are making many many enemies, a whole generation of enemies. We are making enemies with people who don't forget or forgive. If we were to be invaded and my family or friends were killed you can bet your *** I would spend the rest of my life trying to get back at them no matter the cost because it would be all I would have left to do. And since those are people over there who have lost families or friends, you can bet they will try their entire lives to get back at us for our actions.

Sweet dreams TX, enjoy hannity tonight.

I have stood back cleaning up posts, deleting foul language and rewording posts for the last day or so because I think this is an important topic to discuss. Unfortunately, the thread has deviated and is no longer about the killing of an adversary.

I am locking it up.
