It's really irritating to see all the Monday morning quarterbacking that's already taking place in reference to the news of the death of Osama bin Laden. As expected, he was being protected; we in the public will probably never (or at least, not for decades) know who was protecting him and why. I admit to some disappointment. I'm not averse to his being killed, but this isn't truly a war, no matter how it's been touted to the press. It's criminal activity that's led to the deaths of thousands, worldwide. I haven't looked, but many of those involved in the planning and execution of the World Trade Center event have been captured or killed. I would have liked to see ObL tried in court, in the public eye, and then had appropriate judgment carried out. This would have been a proper way to show the point of democracy to the world. He didn't permit that, though. He made sure to get himself killed in combat instead, to try to make himself into a martyr. Only time will tell if he succeeded, thereby raising even more warriors to his cause.

Speak it, brother.. Okay, bad guy down. But who's stepping into his shoes as we speak, and will the death rile the hive?
Pity we have so little trust in the folks who are disseminating the information. We may never know how this event effected the War on Terror.
*bows* you're welcome, sir!
It's just too bad that this couldn't have happened six or eight years ago; it's like closing the barn door after the horse has run.
Or several decades so none of it could have started in the first place.
Go back in time to kill his mother so he couldn't be born? Nice idea, let me know how you're doing with that, OK?
It's been long in the coming. The world needs to wake-up now, and realize that what he did wasn't spiritual - it may have been "religious", but it wasn't spiritual.
I think that his intention was to awaken the world...the Islamic world. He did, and look what he reaped!
not nearly what he sowed. TANJ. There Aint No Justice.
Not to mention the above icon...
I don't think anyone in their right mind thought it was spiritual.
Note that most of the world, however, is not in their right mind.
There's much to be said about that position; we could start with drivers...
Not your type of ...what? Jaffa?
Is this one more your type?
Hm. Are you saying no Jaffa's better than any Jaffa?
The only Jaffa I know is an Arab city south of Tel Aviv.
Hm. Sounds like we've gotta learn ya some new (old) sci-fi...
I didn't like Stargate, the movie...
A) The movie & the series have very little to do with each other.
B) what didn't you like about it?
I saw it originally in the theater; I can no longer recall what specifically I didn't like, but my best recollection is that the whole thing never gelled for me; I couldn't suspend my disbelief. Too much going on with poorly developed motivations. So, since I didn't like the original, I never chose to pursue the TV show.
Well, obviously B5 is better, but there Stargate still has a lot going for it.
No offense, but you'll have to be more persuasive than that.
I'm better at persuading in person. I'll give it a go next Sunday.
I'll look forward to that.
