Because it sounds like Pakistan has been giving us the run around.
This man was the front to an organisation resposible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people, I hope this news brings a sense of closure to their families and loved ones.
1 terrorist down, over 9000 left to go.
HAHA, just downloaded an android soundboard with all the original bot chatters from CS and CS: source a few days ago!!! i used it tonight to play "counter terrorists win!" when i heard the new sthat osama is dead!
Should have resulted into a trial, I wanted his involvement in 9/11 proven in a court of law, but I suppose it wasn't bound to happen since he wasn't even indicted for it.
How 268 Terrorist Groups Worldwide Ended, 1968–2006
@ Kaleid -
For gods sakes man, he was killed in a shootout.
Seems the people responsible for this wonderful news are the U.S. Navy SEALS. As a side note, they blew his godamn head off.
So what? A trial would still have been preferable.
No. That's ridiculous. People like him don't even deserve prison time, let alone trial. He was crazy, and has killed thousands.
I can see the worlds emotions getting them swept up in all of this, and I dont think thats nessesarily a good thing. Its wrong to feel asif this will make the world safer...as stated by NZ PM John Key. This needs to be observed and high level of private personal joy kept to ones self, otherwise this could lead people into a false sense of security, especially those ones whos familes have been affected on that day.
Me personally, I dont have any view point on it, in terms of being supportive or against this outcome.
well, someone will eventually fulfill his position
What? No Roundhouse kick ?
He is dead for sure, but whether he was killed by Americans or died of natural death is still a question that yet has to be answered. Obama told us he was killed by Americans but i doubt that's the truth IMO ... I mean really, what mistake could he have possibly done that he didn't do in 10 years that costed him his life ...
If he died of natural death, how would the Americans feel about it ? Would the President reveal the truth as it is ... ? "The mastermind of 9/11 died of natural death ....?"
I think the message is that if you commit a terrorist act (on American soil) it might take a while, but we'll find you and justice will be served. This by no means ends terrorism, but it does make a point, which is, we won't forget.
Well considering that Pakistan is even saying he was alive when they got there...ect, I'd say it's a pretty good chance we did kill him.
Also, I haven't heard anything bout his head being blown off, the official story is that it was 6 CIA agents + Pakistan military.
And what's different? Well, it's been 10 years as you said. 10 years where he's been hunted, lived a terrible life, he's been sick, and the majority of the world despises his guts. I imagine it took quite a toll and he just eventually screwed up due to the pressure.
People are so down about Americans. Even Al Jazeera had reporters talking about how there were helicopters and gunfire at this compound last night. The compound had 7 foot walls with barb wire, inner walls, burned their trash instead of having it taken away, had no phone lines, television, etc. Oh and it was a multi-million dollar mansion. Caves my ass.
This is awesome news, yeh it doesn't change much, but it will stand as a major triumph in the battle against terrorism.
On a side note, I bet Osama is giving himself an epic faceslap now he has had chance to see where he is headed now, and it isn't paradise! Lol
There is a picture of his corpse. I don't think it is official...it kind of looks like it was shooped around the beard area; but if it is real, it looks like he got skullf****d.
It definitely is not as clear as the pic of abu musab al-zarqawis corpse.
Agreed it would have been the biggest trial of the 21st century. Plus all the information they would have 'extracted' from him would have been priceless.
However killing him comes in a close second.
Can you imagine, though?
Did you see the white house? If they brought him to court...it's not hard to imagine people might riot and bum rush the guy.
I was surprised, within the half hour there were THOUSANDS of people at the white house...by the end of the night, who knows, could break into the hundreds of thousands.
We've had people try to bum rush and kill criminals not 1/10th as bad as this guy. It would have been way worse. There's just no way he could have lived. If by some miracle he actually didn't do it...try to explain that to the rest of the pissed off world.
