    It's good news that Obama has, but seems petty to announce at that time... Unless it had literally just occured.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I could see it being a direct connection between the 9/11 Truthers.

    So you're saying the bin Laden will receive 72 pigs?

    It has already been confirmed through DNA. Why would we turn his body over to his family. We should donate his brain to science then drench his body in swines blood.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Obama to Make Late-Night Statement; Subject Not Announced (UBL Dead)Merged threads
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
