    He did not hide in that mansion for all these years. According to the news channels I have seen, he at best had been in the mansion since October 2010.

    That is precisely my position Paul. I was referring to the fight against terrorism though, killing OBL will do nothing in that respect.

    That's still pathetic.

    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.
    Laila you are totally missing the point.

    LOL
    Celebrating death.

    Go right ahead. Who said don't do it? I didn't even mention celebrating his death

    The leadership of Al Qaeda is most likely intact; his death was always inevitable. Like I said, any leader worth his title would prepare for such an eventuality. Bin Laden's death will be spun by the Islamists as some sort of martyr death and he will be revered by his followers with no doubt many aspiring to be like him.

    Have I mentioned how amusing it is he was in an allies country.
    Do people not think Pakistan's ruling elite had an idea he was there? Probably protected by the local population which can only explain his long, successful hide and seek game

    That is the truth and i respect that, however i will repeat my position on the issue, we have every right to celebrate the passing of a devil.

    The Pakistani's actively support terrorism and they are only called "allies" as a morale boost for them.

    God knows where he was before October 2010, probably living in Obama's basement.

    ROTFLMFAO... It's great we got the corksoaker and motherflocker, but this will not be the rabbit in the hat trick that adds any meat on the bones of electing Obama for a second round of furious arrogance and anti-Americanism.

    Obama has assembled a record of incompetence and partisanship that dwarfs this most fortuitous incident, and this time he won't be able to run and hide.

    It's like saying people couldn't celebrate the death of Hitler.

    Good riddance asshole. Too bad they didn't put a bullet through your head in Somalia.
