    no they are not unique, Neither is my aunts or my friends who I have been in contact with.


    elation, and rejoicing, are far to strong. I am happy that mothervucker is dead, but closure? "rejoicing" "elation"? hardley, these folks are still dead.... America, **** yeah!


    But lets put it in perspective.
    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.

    You may have mis-spelled General Joseph Ralston there. You also seem to have mis-spelled the Pakistani military.

    The thinking was that if Pakistan thought the missiles were coming from India nuclear heck could have broken out. Also, iirc, the alert to the Pakistanis was after the missiles were in the air.

    You mean, besides the fact that when Clinton decided to rape camel-butt to get the Lewinsky-butt off the prime-time news coverage, the Washer Woman decided to call ahead to Pakistan to let them know some flaming telephone poles would be flying through their airspace real soon? Or are you missing the fact that Pakistan is rife with Friends of Obama.....which might have more than a little something to do with where Osama finally died?

    Hmmm...no, the Mayor doesn't see the word "General" in there at all. Are you claiming a mere General is responsible for representing US foreign policy to the world?

    He's the guy who actually talked to the Pakistanis and told them to expect the missiles in their airspace.

    This is great news! Osama is now burning in Hell as he so justly deserves!

    My observation was not a critique. Rev is certainly entitiled to his opinion.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Well obviously not all of those in Pakistan or the Pakistani state otherwise the army would not have been fighting the Taliban. Like I say in order for Bin Laden to live in a mansion in a military town he would need the support of some elements of the military/ISI, and its clear from wikileaks etc. that some elements of the ISI are arming the Taliban. However its unclear whether this is being mandatated by the elected government or whether this is a case of certain factions doing whatever they please. Possibly its a case of the Taliban/Al Qaeda infiltrating the ISI or possibly its a case of the military giving some support the Taliban and Al Qaeda in order to justify intrusive role in Pakistani politics, who knows? Its intresting you brought this up as it reminds me alot of the Ergenekon case in Turkey.
