One thing for sure this thing is far from over.


This is the difference between USA and Canada. They blew up two of our buildings, we blew up 2 of their countries. We finished taking out the "Command and control" and will continue to do so.

Japan could have advised Bin Laden not to do that. We are an irrational, inventive, vindictive, and bored bunch. And Osama stuck his naughty bits in our hornets nest.


And Hornets love to sting over and over, Good analogy S^S.

A opportunity to show a bit of sensitivity to the Muslim world: return his body to his family in Saudi Arabia.

According to CBS News, the Saudi Kingdom didn't want his remains. (This would suggest the offer was made.) He's been buried at sea, ostensibly "in accordance with Muslim traditions".

Ahhh, that's too bad. With no body or grave site, let the conspiracy theories begin. :|

I think the actual quote is buried within 24 hours, which is a muslim tradition, at sea. They didnt want to have a grave for people to mourn over and declare gihad

Bury Him on US soil not facing Mecca.

NO! Bury him over there with full military honors. I know none of his followers would, but we don't sink to their level. Confuse the jihad right out of them.

OK, now I'm in: Gary, where do we join the group of followers you have? Ha ha!

No way, but I'll doubt if the fish will eat him and survive, they threw him in the ocean
so no funeral or worse, something to remember him and make a 'saint'
out of this sick character and "his Al Qaida".

And how many years, did Pakistan give this character a way to live in luxury
instead of a Court, like Sadam Hoessein and put him in yail* or dead penalty?

*Yail, wouldn't be possible for a thousand reasons, or more.

But I'll drink to this achievement!

I want to start a conspiracy.

What if... he's not really dead. What if we've been told this so people will stop looking for him. What if we have him and are in the process of interrogating and gleening info out of him. what if Frogs had wings... they wouldn't bump their butts when they jump

The actual quote from the CBS News report is: "U.S. officials (said) that bin Laden's body would be handled in accordance with Muslim traditions, which include strict rules on burial taking place within 24 hours after death."

(Emphasis added.)

There are additional rites associated with Islamic funerals.

This burial at sea has provoked a debate, even amongst Islamic scholars.

Message 1102785 - Posted: 2 May 2011, 18:05:34 UTC - in response to Message 1102638.  

I'm wondering about the reaction from the Skyman over burying Bin Laden in such a manner as proposed by VW Bobier.
Since both religions pray to the same dude in the clouds, will the Skyman be pleased or angered?

Here we have "Skyman" and "dude in the clouds" ... . Obvious attempts at mockery, rather than asking questions.
However, in the end, despite it's poor presentation, Robert actually asks a good question here. [I know, he'll overlook that I said this. :)]
Then again, Muslim's are the one's that claim they worship the same God that Christians do. I wonder what most Christians' take on this is?

Personally I believe burial at sea was the best option. He'll be martyred by his followers but they'll have no place to make a "shrine" for him....

I saw this on a Facebook page today:

Osama you are with your 72 virgins now but since you don't believe in Homosexuality, I hope they are 72 male, unwashed, stinky hairy virgins with one especially big one named Bubba waiting for you saying, "Come here b*tch. I'm gonna show you what I did to Saddam."

I just spoke to a relative of Terry Pelino who I went to High School with. He was killed in the Towers.

If anything positive is to come of Bin Laden's death, remember he masterminded 9/11. In that respect, justice truely has been served. I just hope this offers 9/11 friends/families some sense of long awaited closure

Curious that Osama's death will provide so many Americans closure because he is the face of their hatred, but at the same time his death will do nothing to quell the hatred that caused the attacks of September 11th, 2001.

Christianity, Judaism and Islam all pray to the same God as Abraham did. They all branched off from the same trunk.
