    If Osama was allowed to get away with what he did, other would be terrorists would be inspired to expect pleasant outcomes for their deeds.

    That is awesome and close to how I'd imagine Obama actually is. I like the guy.

    From the pictures of viewing the operation I'm pretty sure that him and Clinton had live streamed images of the raiders getting him out of his bed and whatever resistance went down and the shooting, they looked shocked at the proceedings anyway, which was good, it wasnt just a video game style at one remove deal which I think a hell of a lot of people treat news like this as.

    I would say that I dont think it misses the point to attribute so much to one guy, its possible to exaggerate the structural and cultural underpinnings of movements like this, they arent always that organic and in this instance I think it was a one man show, he created it, he bankrolled it, it was his adventure.

    The terrorists of political islam I think are more comparable to criminal gangs or even politicised prison gangs, than other historical armed struggle groups with definable, negotiable aims and objectives.

    dude i'm not even american, i don't understand how any of the processes actually work. i was just posting funny pictures. some people take things waahaaayy too seriously. but i pretty much agree, how retarded is that? obama is not responsible for killing ubl? of course he is responsible, it was his operation. obama is p cool yo. i saw his speech though he messed up like 5 times, i wanted to make it a drinking game.

    I would love to see the reactions if one of Saddam Hussein's sons helicoptered in on Kennebunkport, shot a Bush and dropped him into the sea on his way back home - for all the deeds the Bushes performed in Iraq, you know.

The conditions that make the world vulnerable to fundamentalist ideology still exist, and the organizations formed under these conditions still exist. One man is dead, and the world is not really better off because of it.

    The only reason I can think of to celebrate is because it gives our dear President a fairly palatable excuse to ease up on this "war on terror" madness. I just hope he uses it.
    This is possibly the most sensible post in this thread.

    So Obama doesn't want to have the pictures of Osama Bin Laden to be published? Okay. In that case, Wikileaks will do it.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    Damn, haven't seen that pic until now. That's intense.

    Obviously, both sides think they are in the right. But what relevance do that have on whether retribution against Osama was appropriate?

    In a case like that the wiser one of the two has to step back and to endure injustice so there's a chance for the conflict to be resolved. If both sides scream for justice for forever, it will probably end in the end for them both.

    You are lucky I am happy to see Osama dead aswell for the things he did in New York, otherwise I'ld have to shoot you now and drop in the Ocean
