Jesse Ventura said that a week ago, oddly enough. Also, the speech by the President, was the most presidential that I've seen him, ever....even if he was using a teleprompter, and the speech was written a week ago. I hope, though guardedly, that this may begin a easing of tensions, rather than a 'new martyr' to lift up.

This to me is very good news. I imagine it will disrupt the organization of terror for some time. It won't stop Al Quieda and it will probably have some retaliation. But this will disrupt things for a while.

If ever there was a man who deserved this type of justice it was Bin Laden. The world didn't need him and it won't miss him

Yes! Finally! So many things we do today are impacted by the planning and plotting of that one man. It's time his evil was brought to an end.

Everyone of a certain age will no doubt remember where they were when they heard of the planes hitting the twin towers, just as those of us old enough remember where we were when Kennedy was shot, or the Challenger exploded.

It also seems to be such an incredible weekend of opposites - a Royal Wedding and the death of a Monster. I dubbed it "beauty and the beast" in my twitter feed.

It's not been a good year for al-Qaeda. in some ways other events are more important than this--particularly the toppling of Mubarak by a bunch of middle-class Facebook, etc. fans rather than al-Qaeda and other radical groups, which had been trying to remove him for about 30 years.

Al-Qaeda is in grave danger of becoming irrelevant.


But the death of bin Laden certainly will help Obama politically. It will be much harder to argue that he is somehow sympathetic to radical Islam.    So on that score it's great news.

The sad thing is that more innocent people are going to die now, in the reprisal attacks that will follow as surely as night follows day. Maybe not on the scale of 9/11, but remember Madrid and London, Reid the shoe-bomber et al.

Bin Laden had become almost an irrelevance, they could quite easily have left him to pass away whatever time he had left in a hole in Pakistan, but his death at US-hands will almost certainly re-awaken and re-juvenate The Beast in al-Quaeda. Those guys just love a martyr to avenge, and Bin Laden has just become the biggest of them all.

Enjoy your 'celebrations' if you must but, mark my words, this will all end in tears.

"Backwoodsman, they were probably going to die anyway. That's the sad truth of an organization like Al Qaeda"

The operative word being probably, SRS. Maybe they would, maybe they wouldn't. Now, we'll never know, and probability has been turned into certainty. He was a sleeping dog, old and tired, that should have been let lie. Instead he's been 'martyred', and a renewed impetus almost certainly driven into his band of followers who, raggle-taggle though they may be viewed by some, have demonstrated in London, Madrid and other places that they are still capable of inflicting damage and great loss of innocent life.

Ten years ago I'd have joined in the partying. At that time it would have been a hard punch on the nose for al-Quaeda, right when they were busying patting themselves on the back. Unfortunately, the USA-ian idiot who announced that they were tracking Bin Laden by his cellphone-signals blew that chance right out of the water, and gifted him a further ten years of freedom (9/11-conspiracy-theorists, think about that one please!) Today, I think a nest of very dangerous hornets has been given an unnecessary stir for God-knows-what reason.

And, as always, the innocent will pay the price.

Usual disclaimers - IMHO, YMMV etc.

" . . . For the American forces to expect anything from me personally reflects a very narrow perception. Thousands of millions of Muslims are angry. The Americans should expect reactions from the Muslim world that are proportionate to the injustice they inflict." - Osama bin Laden - to Time Magazine Dec 1998


My Jihad Camel, the one who started his lonely trek across a Libyan desert just a few weeks ago, gained tens of thousands of supporters the other day, when Gadaffi's grandchildren were killed.

Today, it has gained millions more.....


And meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Americans rejoice.


There are times when Rejoicing & Retaliation become Twin Towers of their own, reaching far higher, far wider, into the heart of this world than mere bricks and steel could ever do, castingn shadows so dark that it may take many years for the sun to penetrate.


May God Help Us All, Inshallah

Is there not a case for justice against a mass murderer?
Reprisals?
You would have to believe that they were holding back for some reason.
All they might do is bring forward an attack planned anyway.
That means it is less likely to succeed.

Bin Laden will have passed over the operational management of his organisation long ago, although his continued evasion of Western intelligence services still made him a powerful figurehead to every anti-western extremist group.
As such we must now expect some form of retaliation. With luck, their capabilities are seriously limited, and their rush for vengeance may prove ill-planned.
10 years ago Bin Ladens' death may have been a cause for celebration, today, whilst sending a clear message that no matter how long, terrorists will be brought to justice, it signals a time for vigilance.

I wonder if there was a chance of taking him alive? Must've been considered but I suppose that this would have lead to Western hostage-taking on a grand scale by Al Qaeda so much better not to give them the excuse. There will of course still be some nasty retaliation to come but taking hostages will serve no purpose and there will be no trial to disrupt. As his hideout was a high-security compound 70 miles from Islamabad, questions are already being asked about how much the Pakistan authorities knew about his location.

Bin Laden plotted the violent deaths of you and your loved ones.
It was just chance that they escaped and others just like them died.
Not relevant?
He hated your liberalism and sought to destroy it and you.
Brave men risked their own violent death to protect our liberal ideals from him and his like.
