Bundesrat Ueli Maurer says Obama has turned Bin Laden into a martyr

Not a view i agree with, maybe he thinks this reduces the risk of this country being targeted in revenge.

May well be BUT the name of the US president is NOT Osama

alright, but more to the point, further terrorist attacks ARE possible all the time. The one in Marrakech caused three young casualties in the Canton of Ticino.

Switzerland with its many tourist spots full with USsers and and many banks full with USsers may become a target. But not worse than before

Don't worry about it, it happens to the best of us, well Fox anyway.

Unfortunately at the other hand, that tricky shrewed Maurer may be proven right in future, when OBL develops into a kind of Arab Che Guevara. Let's not forget that Dr med Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, even if brilliant in theory, failed with his political program totally and entirely. No hindrance for uncountable demonstrators in Europe and elsewhere to shout "Che Che Che"

The man got killed, but his picture(s)





sorry, I mean THIS one


may well survive

Maybe he will be turned into a cult image & posters but too many people will remember this one; which may also become a T shirt in due time

Actually the T shirt slogan could be "would you pay $25M for this man?" or something snappier but on the same lines.

Right you may be in theory, BUT there were heaps of pictures showing "Che" in less positive ways, but WHICH ones got chosen ?

Time will tell
I was hoping somebody would come up with a better t shirt slogan.

I believe the difference could be that there are more "forces of law & order" these days that understand the value of publicity & would push the negative images indeed they already started....

Talking of which there was a good cartoon on the front of yesterday's tagesanzeiger on this topic of plotting revenge for BL. I cannot find it in the on-line edition

Re: Bundesrat Ueli Maurer says Osama has turned Bin Laden into a martyr

There was a brilliant and scary cartoon by Vincent l'Epée in our local newspaper yesterday, entitled Spring pruning. First cartoon is a plant with several branches with BL's head on top branch being cut off by secateurs. Next picture with a smaller BL's head on all the other branches.

In tagesanzeier the cartoon shows al-qaida in conference, all heavily armed & looking gloomy
One says "what next"
& then says "anybody got a good proposal for destruction?"

Sure, time WILL tell, while I cannot ! Interesting it to see that Tunisians and Egyptians alike praise right now Messrs




while General Mubarak was for more democratically minded than his predecessors

An example of negative images, US released today
"Avena syrup, an extract of wild oats that is marketed as a natural impotence cure, was listed on the medicine shelf at his (BL) compound."

Getting ever harder to visualise who will seek revenge for this martyr......
