God Bless USA: Osama Bin Laden is DEAD!!

Postby Karl Heidenreich » Mon May 02, 2011 12:23 pm

God Bless the United States of America and it's efforts, started by George W. Bush, to destroy global islamic terrorism. Osama Bin Laden, the islamic vermin, was shot dead by USA's special forces operation in "allied" territory of Pakistan.
A shame that it was during Obama's administration but the glory and victory goes to the US Armed Forces, as always. God Bless them and damn all it's enemies. My salute!

Much regards!

A shame he was not caught earlier, but better late than never!

I'm not a Obama fan but he got this one right. Better late than never. A big BRAVO ZULU to the US Navy SEALs!

In some ways it may have been better as it is. If he'd been caught right after 9/11 the chance of him becoming a martyr would have been much higher. He was also a rather incompetent leader and many of the reverses Al Quada experianced over the last decade can probably be laided at his feet. It's worth noteing that NPR reported this morning that there were celebrations in Dearborne as well as in New York and that when Marines stationed in Afghanistan reported his death to the local populace they were happy to here it.

On a more vindictive note this way he got to see his "great creation" fall to pieces about him before he died so he knew he was a failure when it happened.

Yes, it has taken a long time - too long.

Now Mr President, how about Gaddafi?

The real challenge is to take out the current leadership of Al Qaeda and the Taliban - without having to deploy huge miliotary forces in places like Afghanistan to do it.

Another problem are countries like Pakistan, where you can't be sure who is really friend or foe.

This interesting narrative came to me this early morning. It's worth a reading:
