Lets see the how long it takes for the Republicans to play down Obama's role in this.

You're assuming Bush has the brain power to think in the first place.




Olaf -> RE: Osama Bin Laden Dead (2/5/2011 5:06:00 AM)

Rather disappointed that the short-notice press conference on a matter of national security wasn't about an alien invasion (or least an asteroid). Bah.

interesting news though. utterly meaningless from a strategic/military perspective, but it's secured him that second term most likely.




Spaldron -> RE: Osama Bin Laden Dead (2/5/2011 5:32:09 AM)

Turns out sending some badass special forces guys into Pakistan is a more effective way of killing Bin Laden that invading Iraq.

It's a shame he wasn't captured and stand trial.

That is true, however he would be viewed as a symbol of resistance and so that was never going to happen.

I would say so actully - he has been a boogeyman for the last decade, and psychologically his continuing to live has been around the neck of many people.

The Republicans should just pack up and go home now. Obama just got his second term in office. 




Scruffybobby -> RE: OSAMA BIN LADEN DEAD! (2/5/2011 8:52:10 AM)

Nothing more than a hollow PR victory for Obama. Bin Laden was never anything more than a  figurehead. Is the world suddenly a safer place? Nope. Are all the terrorists going to give up the ghost? Will they fuck. Can the forces be brought home from Afghanistan? Is radical Islamism defeated in one fell swoop? Not on your nelly.

Sorry but there's really nothing to celebrate here.

Yeah It is never a good thing when a man who has helped in the killing of thousands dies.




homersimpson_esq -> RE: OSAMA BIN LADEN DEAD! (2/5/2011 8:58:09 AM)

I was about to say how much of a pessimist you are and how annoying your pessimism is, scruffy, but I got distracted by your avatar.

Anyway, however you spin it, one fewer terrorist is A Good Thing, right? And if it keeps Obama in office, that is also A Good Thing. I don't see Republicans making awesome speeches at the Correspondence Dinner.

I sort of agree with this. Yes, its great that he is dead but what exactly is it going to stop? If anything its going to cause more trouble with terrorists avenging his death and what not. Bin Laden became a myth character and for a long time people were wondering if he was actually alive. I looked at the news this morning and didn't find myself in any degree of shock, just went 'hmm'.




NadaPlissken -> RE: OSAMA BIN LADEN DEAD! (2/5/2011 9:10:40 AM)

Obviously this is good news, regardless of how much of an influence Goldstein - I mean Bin Laden - still had.

Still, I can't quite warm to the sights of street-parties celebrating his death.  Sort of echoes those who had a knees-up on Sept 11 (especially since one guy was holding the US flag the wrong way).  Would have been a moral victory if we ("the west") could have risen above that sort of thing.
