Forgive me for bringing this back up if people are tired of talking about it but I haven't been on here in a little while and I feel like I need to put in my two cents.

First off, to those who think he's not dead: Al Qaeda confirmed it. He really is dead. It's ridiculous to think that the US would go so far as to have the President speak on international television and say that he is dead when he's not. Why would we do that? It makes NO sense.

Secondly, I really don't think that Bin Laden's death is really going to work in Obama's favor all that much. As multiple people have pointed out, America still needs a LOT of fixing with the recession and spending and such. Not that killing Bin Laden wasn't important, but I'm pretty sure most Americans are more concerned with getting our economy back on track which Obama has failed to do. Who was thinking about Bin Laden until his death was announced? There's no way that Bin Laden's death is going to guarantee that he'll get reelected.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I think Obama is taking WAY more credit for Bin Laden's death than he should. Yeah, he gave the ok to take out Bin Laden. But that's really all he did. It was all the people behind the scenes that did the dirty work and the Navy Seals that were involved deserve WAY more credit than Obama gave them. He made it sound as if finding Bin Laden was not a priority when he came into office. Of course we wanted to find him when Bush was president. Unfortunately, that's how politics works. People who deserve the credit do not always get it.

Also, to whoever posted that MLK quote: That's not an accurate quote. Only part of it is. Some random person made part of it up and put it in with what MLK said in a book he wrote. People should really do their homework...

As far as releasing the pictures goes, I really don't care either way. I know he's dead. I don't need pictures to prove it. If they don't want to release the pictures because they're afraid of upsetting/offending Bin Laden's followers, then that's stupid. Seriously. They already hate America.

I also think people are right regarding the idea that Bin Laden will just be replaced. He already has been replaced. That's just how these sort of things work. However, that doesn't mean that his death hasn't affected Al Qaeda because clearly it has. He may not have had a huge roll regarding the operations of things as of late but that doesn't mean he wasn't an important figure to their group.

Ok...I think I've written enough for now. By the way, may I just say that Caliber is one of my new favorite people now? Haha.

Well i normally don't post on those forums.. As in Never until now. However i want to say something in context to Cals forum post about his personal beliefs.
I honestly don't give a rats ass who the US feel they need to BOMB back to the stone age just to prove that they are BLOODY USA and that "terrorists" or WMD owners should watch out.
Imo USA is a terrorist nation who just look to attack their next country whenever they please or whenever they want something in said country (Oil from iraq anyone?) and what does US have to do with Libya tbh? Nothing.. its a bloody civil war. Imo stay the hell out and let the ppl solve their own problems. If the us plan on messing with all nations that start a civil war, i just hope they don't complain when the Middle East invade when some future **** President start killing his own ppl.
Just my 10 cents.

Not all of US citizens are like minded from the higher ups who do gain benefits from such battles etc. Just like not all Muslims are terrorists.

So your post is a bit one sided and blinkered.

Today I saw a mother yelling at her (about) 8-year-old so badly that he took cover behind a lantern and didn't dare to come after her for about 20 meters. He probably gets beaten every day at home.
Everywhere in the world I see people celebrating the deaths of others, first the terrorists now the americans.

And that's only a very small excerpt of brutal World History.

Call me a liberal, call me a do-gooder....I don't care. Only thing I know: When spaceflights will have become cheap, I'm the first one outta here.

We'll only end up taking our conflicts to the stars. Personally I believe we have no business in space until we can learn to actually live on this planet together without trying to kill eachother.

A little off topic, I know, sorry. On topic @Crownregent... the US aren't the only ones who took part in the invasion of Afghanistan or Iraq, nor are they the only ones involved in the action taken against Libya. In fact your own country is sending fighters for the no-fly zone.

Blinkered and one sided, as DH put it, is the nice way to describe your post.
