    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I'm not sure what news channel your watching, but change the channel. There is NO conflicting news on UK channels. US special forces killed him in a compound in the garrison town of Abbottabad, Pakistan.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    Anyone who actually thinks Osama Bin Laden played any key role these last few years is having a laugh. As he got older, he no doubt assigned tasks to other key figures. He was merely a figurehead and removing him does nothing to stop the group.

    That said.
    About ****ing time tbh. 2 unnecessary wars and now they finally find him? In an ally's countries no less and there was my small hopes he'd be in Saudi Arabia just as a insult to the Saudi Royals.

    What a great weekend. My 2nd 4 day weekend, a royal wedding and now this.

    Killing Osama (assuming he was killed) will do f*ck all, but it's just nice knowing his dead.

    It does jack ****.

    This is just to appease all those Americans and Westerners to try and fool them into believing they are getting anywhere.
    You can't cut off the head of a freaking ideology. It does not rest in ONE leader and Bin Laden would have no doubt prepared for his death and assigned his deputies with instruction.

    What is even more sad and slightly amusing is no doubt Americans and Westerners are lapping this up like fools thinking they just gave a fatal blow to a ideology.

    I think most people know that there is no silver bullet when it comes to terrorism. But don't tell me these people dont have the right to celebrate the death of the mastermind who killed hundreds of fellow American and Westerners. They have every right.

    I think its far more significant than that Kaya. It is one significant piece of the Americas policy in eliminating the command structure of AQ. It's immaterial if OBL was active or inactive, he was the leader when AQ carried out its biggest atrocity. Its far more than symbolic.

    RIP


    "Bin Laden was located at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which was monitored and when the time was determined to be right, the president said, he authorized a "targeted operation."

    "A small team of Americans carried out the operation," Obama said. "After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body."
