    Default Osama Bin Laden is Dead

    Barack Obama made an official announcement this morning with news that Bin Laden had finally been found and killed by US Forces in Pakistan:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-Pakistan.html

    So...what does everyone think about this? Are you glad? Are you indifferent? Are you just worried about someone else taking control of Al-Qaeda in his place?

    I found Obama's speech a bit queasy to be honest, all that god bless the USA nonsense, and the live pictures of Americans in Washington jumping up and down with glee...I just can't respond that way to it at all.

    Anyone with some common sense and some knowledge knows that the 9/11 hit was anything BUT a terrorist attack. Is Bin Laden even a real person? Who knows.

    Haha...uh oh...I wasn't expecting the conspiracy theories until at least after the first page of replies! I'm unprepared!

    Yeah he's a real person though, I assure you! I think you're giving the US Government a bit too much credit for being these amazing terrorist-plot masterminds, though. I really do.

    I really don't think this was a terrorist attack, I don't know what it was or who it was, but I don't think it was terrorists. But that's just me. How do we know exactly that he's a real person again, without a doubt?

    Well, I've never met the guy, but then again I've never met Barack Obama, and I know he exists :-P. Video footage, photography, having his body...kind of gives it away? Why do you need proof that he exists though, I didn't even know that was ever in question? There's loads of conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11, and they all seem exceedingly far-fetched as far as I can tell, as if terrorists wasn't sinister enough, people try and create even more torment and paranoia by making up stories. I mean, it's good, it encourages debate, but I don't think you should lean one way or the other without properly weighing up all arguments.

    Well they say they shot him in the head then buried his body at sea .... hmm all conveniently un-provable. Wonder what the reprisals will be like.

    Personally I find all the smug "go USA" stuff sickening at the best of times, but this beats all.

    and one more thing ... it took TEN YEARS to bring him down? Go USA indeed, really swift anti-terror message going out there. Well done.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch

    I don't think he deserves to live per se, but it sickens me that people see the murder of a person as a reason to celebrate.
