    Reports are surfacing that the Al-Qaeda leader died of typhoid last month.

    Is he really cactus?

    Interesting if they can prove that the murderer died of typhoid. That would have been to fast a death in my view for this coward.

    Not true. How else could he be unveiled to the world in a couple of weeks, just in time for the mid-term elections in the US? A dead Osama wouldn't be much use. President Bush needs to fly out there and kill Osama with his bare hands, live on TV.

    There have been plenty of rumours about bin Laden's demise. Yet we have still to see a body.

    Even if he is dead, it won't really change anything at this point - Al Qaeda doesn't need him to operate effectively.

    Sadly, all the raising Cain is futile until someone habeas the corpus.

    Seriously, if Bin Laden was suspected of hiding out on the border between afghanistan and pakistan as the article said, why didn't the US conduct organized sweeps of the area continuously instead of focusing their efforts on Iraq? There are now more than 2x the number of CANADIAN troops there vs. US troops and the original terrorist attacks weren't even in Canada. How can the Bush government disrespect the innocent victims of 9/11 by forgetting them like this? Why are foreign allies committing more resources to a known base of Al Qaeda? Something is seriously wrong with this picture.

    Maybe Dubya dropped the typhoid into his bunker with a droid ;)

    I think dysentery is a suitable way to go for him. Nothing like ****ing yourself and puking all the time before running out of stuff to expel from your body.



    Wow, can't believe the profanity filter missed that one... ;)

    Hopefully Bin Laden is finally dead.

    I agree, this death was far too quick for him. :mad:


    Oh well, at least the world is finally rid of him.

    I'd rather see him go on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney. That's something I would like to see on pay-per-view.

    As is completely ****ing obvious as you can tell from the way we're losing in Iraq and actually installed Al-Qaeda in that country.

    That's assuming he remembers anything from his paid vacation in (and from) the Nat'l Guard.

    It doesn't really matter. If bin Laden goes, then someone, potentially worse, will take his place.

    He is alive and well, running the garage up the road from my house.

    Charges a shocking price for sandwiches and fizzy drinks.

    No wonder the US want to kill him.

    Will someone please explain the "Cactus Profundus" reference?

    I was hoping someone else would ask this so I wouldn't appear stupid but it looks like I'm the only one who doesn't get it.

    Thanks for the tip Allotriophagy, I will inform the proper US authorities and have them bring an end to this guy's rain of price gauging terror! ;) :D :)

    I just cannot resist his delicious day-old bacon and egg sandwiches. :(

    I am such a terrorist. :(
