So back to the original point of this thread... US claims they killed Osama. Now 5 days after this claim. Who still believes it?
A bit risky claiming the glory , knowing that if you hadn't killed him, he could pop up anywhere and dennounce the premature announcement of his Death ???

Hey, stop it. Spreading doubts is so very wicked.

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

Is that what they're teaching you?

OK Pash, let's all just hate then shall we. Let's all fill ourselvers with fury and see how that works out. They say a good fight produces the same body chemicals as a good shag.....
not that I'm implying...

Here, again, history & experience proves you wrong.

When encountering Evil, hate is a logical response. OBL was evil, Al Quada is evil - they are responsible for numerous deaths, their ideology is enslavement.

If we don't hate Evil, we accept it - thus becoming partners in it.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (today it would have good men & women...)

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

Ahhh, Isralis can talk and talk and talk you into the ground and that for days and nights and weeks and months.
They are absolutely good at it. I think the best way is to simply enjoy it all.
But then it is probably only me who finds amusement in all that. Mazel tov.

The Bible certainly has been misinterpreted (ignored, really), by people who have presumed to kill "in the name of" Christ, but that doesn't mean they truly did kill "in his name" (= for his cause). His teachings simply don't endorse killing, whether presumably "in his name" or otherwise. Period. Willfully ignoring that lends undeserved credibility to those impostors (it doesn't help yours, either ).

I shall quote bible for you but please, please do not groan at me for what our Master supposedly said.

“I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning! Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against. ‘Father will be divided against son and son against father; mother against daughter and daughter against mother; and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’ "

So, about this crashed helicopter in the compound then? Looks to be a modified UH-60L Black Hawk, the likes of which have not been published before.

Eh oui.

I'd say that is exactly what's happening, arguing endlessly endlessly endlessly until everyone is so bloody sick and tired of it all.
arguing about what when where and why.

for always and forever. amen. very sad actually. but that is what life is made of.

Re: US gov. claiming Osama bin Laden killed.

While US govt. was busy drawing a plan of how to catch and kill one taliban, at least 475 of them escaped from Kandahar's biggest prison.

In what way is anything on this thread relevant to any of us in Switzerland?

Is there a single member of this forum who has any kind of influence over any of these events?

Whether we're talking about Pakistani geopolitics, fancy helicopters or the ethics of burial at sea, it's all just so much farting in the wind.

Then again, they do say better out than in...

They had to modify it so that the helicopter does not look exactly like the one in the Hollywood's upcoming movie, in addition to some other changes in the movie plot and storyline.

I can agree with both sides to this current argument about killing in the name of religion, but we are forgetting one important factor.

The people who actually kill, foot soldiers in the front line, are usually not so smart and are manipulated or lead to believe to go and fight/kill/die for the good cause. They probably do believe that they are right in doing that, in their ignorance.

The people at the top, who sit comfortably at a distance, who actually incite and give seemingly valid arguments for the killings are the ones who are not exactly doing it for religion or anyone but for their own self interest.
Interesting that nobody ever comments about the deaths of the "foot soldiers"; I mean were they armed or not armed, sitting in a tank or sleeping in bed, killed without trial, &&&&

But it is different for "The people at the top" then the comments are they should have a proper trial; they should not be killed if they are unarmed &&&

I have not seen a single comment about the other people killed in the same raid, I mean legality, trial, &&& ......
