    Of course, how can we not have see this, if the US had captured bin Laden, these nuts would simply have said 'oh well, that's over with, who wants a cup of tea', and gone on their way.

    You also said he has the blood of 80 innocent people "directly" on his hands. I think I can read just fine.

    Yes, and he does. He made a decision to kill bin Laden. Just like when Bush made the decision to go after Saddam, the left said the blood of all of those soldiers were on the hands of Bush because Bush made the decision. Why is Obama immune to it? Why is Obama immune to everything?

    Just so you know, attacking someone personally is never acceptable on this forum. If you have nothing to add to the thread, then move along. Got it?

    If you have a problem with what I said, maybe you shouldn't be laying the blame for the deaths of 80 people at the feet of someone whose decision you allegedly respect. Personally, I think insulting someone to their face is more respectful, and especially with justifiable reason.

    For the record, I have never blamed Bush for the actions of terrorists, nor will I.

    That's it? That's how we know this attack wouldn't've happened otherwise.

    To me, imho, and ymmv, it seems that if they have shown a recent willingness to kill civilians they may also be willing to say that an attack is for revenge for a specific incident even though it was already planned and was going to happen anyway.

    So, if that's the only reason we have to believe that the attack wouldn't've happened otherwise, I am disinclined to agree that not killing ObL would've prevented the attack.
    I may be wrong.

    Taliban's 'First Revenge' for Bin Laden Killing Leaves 80 Dead in Pakistan - FoxNews.com

    The blood of 80 people is now directly on the hands of our president. Do these idiots even realize that it doesn't exactly further their cause that if one of their own is killed for killing innocent people, that killing more innocent people won't sway people to their side?

    Oh well, looks like the war on terror ain't over yet, is it?
    Right, because we're just SOOO sure that trying him in court, giving him a podium for his hateful politics, would result in WAAAY fewer deaths than just killing him!
    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.

    Well if the Taliban said it, then it must be correct right? I mean they are hard working people and the ONLY reason that they did this is because we killed Osama. I mean they would never do such a thing if our president had say just captured him or left him alone right?
    /sarcasm off

    It's amazing you will believe anything the Taliban actually says and then try to lay the blood of 80 people directly on President Obama. Sickening to say the least that you would use this just for partisan jabs.

    They certainly would not have obtained some hostages and demanded bin Laden's release either. Nooooooooo...it was so much worse to kill him.
