    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    mac, Al Jazeera still has this message at the bottom of their home page: DEMAND AL JAZEERA IN THE USA. It has a space for your zip code there. I don't know what that means but I took it as Al Jazeera not being available in the US. Can someone confirm one way or another?

    I can get Al-Jazeera English on my campus's cable TV.
    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.

    Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead

    Perhaps he was dead a while ago and there was no way of producing DNA to prove it? Perhaps the US blew him to little bits in one of their bombing raids? There are lots of possibilities but this story doesn't smell right at the moment. It may smell better if they produce photo evidence but it may smell even worse.

    There is lots of incentive for the US to produce a story to say that they got him. Americans want him dead and they don't want the continuing uncertainty. And then, perhaps he will produce a video which shows him alive but I really doubt that one. That kind of political coup doesn't happen. It can't happen if he's dead and it can't happen if he's alive and captured. Work it all out for yourselves and stop being lemmings who are easily led to believe what their government wants them to believe. The Iraq war lies should have been a lesson once and for all! If htey could pull that one off this one should be really easy.

    Sadly there is no rational discussion of the issue right now, only resistance to believing anything other than the official story. I'll let you people stew on it for a while and see if anybody can wrap their minds around the possibilities of you all being duped by your government.

    I'm not sure why you think we can't get all this information - America and Americans aren't too big on censorship.

    Give me a reason to doubt it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
