    Al-Qaeda 'confirms Bin Laden's death'

    BBC News - 'Al-Qaeda statement' confirms Osama Bin Laden's death

    Basically it just gives me more reason that we need to draw out of Iraqi, Afghanistan, screw Libya, and be every vigilant about Pakistan. I just realized something today too...my pants are from Pakistan.

    Why do you have one pair of pants?

    Burn them immediately, they were obviously made by terrorists... Because that's what terrorists do... Make pants...

    I'll shut up now.

    We will be drawing out of Iraq at the end of 2011, no need to accelerate an already planned time table that, IMO, as a liberal, is fair and will work fine. Afghanistan needs to be re-examined. Pulling out in 2014 is absolutely ridiculous. We need to reduce the number very slowly to about 30,000 or so troops, and leave them there in a police presence to train Afghani soldiers and keep things under control. What we are doing right now is nation building, while our economy is barely even recovering back at home.

    That's what Im saying get all our troops out of both countries (save money) and if we need to be able to deploy to Pakistan quickly if needed, something I don't think we will have to do though.

    Iraq and A-stan....Both Afghan and Iraqi governments (maybe Iraq controls a little bit more) do not control very much of the country and if not for our efforts, the psuedo governments wouldn't last very long.

    How much we train the Afghanis/Iraqis appears very immaterial. They aren't very good material and I expect they'll either fall to AQ or degenerate back into battling war lords in a very short time.

    Basically, we pull out...they succumb

    Isn't that likely to happen whenever we pull out? How can we continue to afford spending trillions in unending war?

    Does anyone think that al Qaeda acknowledging bin Laden's death will convince the Deathers that bin Laden is in fact dead? Methinks not.
