Good news, as far as it goes.
We just saved $25 million.
Live by the sword,die by the sword or in this case missile He had it coming.
If I'm reading the info released so far correctly the $25 million will be paid out.
You mean to tell me he actually existed? I thought he was one of George's imaginary friends.
Your thinking of Bin Laden.
Him too. You couldn't make it up.
The news are reporting that they dropped 2 500lb bombs on him. Im sure he didnt feel a thing which is to bad. We know George likes to torture, im surprised they didnt scoop him up and give him the old chineese water torture.....drip ......drip..........
I agree, They say they were tipped off by both people inside his organization as well as some local citizens.
And now for his replacement......
I can't say I am against this, but don't we usually give people a trial before executing them?
not in a war where he has killed many many. He was wanted dead or alive I think.
A $25 million bounty on his head - that's some chocolate bar, no wonder it killed him.
So he killed a lot of people - does that mean he doesn't deserve a trial?
I'm not trying to be obtuse, and I understand it's a war (even though not technically declared on), but why do we get all ths flack about the Gitmo prisoners and Constitutional rights when we do hits on people like Zarqawi?
Does anyone think this will make any difference? Willprobably only serve to strenghthen these loons desire to kill more people.
I mean, if Bush were to choke on a pretzel and die, would that put this country back on the right track?
No, but I would most likely laugh.
Prisoners are "protected by laws" to be treated fairly.
Al Zarqawi is an admitted al Qaeda leader who has sworn to kill as many as possible.
It has been said before, in war, leaders are fair game to execution.
Only non combatent citizens are to be avoided.
Sorry to say it but you sound like those freaks who jump to protect the rights of proven child molesters and murderers so they can have the privilege of cable in prison
I think the key was not to let him get away. Im sure if they had a way to get him alive without jeopardising the safety of our guys they would have.
Parading him around captured and alive like they did Sadam would be more humiliating then his current martyr staus.
I said at the beginning of the post I don't necessarily disagree with this action (I don't disagree with it - for the record), but wanted some alternative views on "taking people out," which is usually frowned on greatly by the more liberal among us.
Just trying to provoke a converstaion...you put the words in my mouth, not me.
So that exempts you from a reply?
You said you were trying to provoke conversation only to ridicule the response.
You put a disclaimer in your post so you can back out if the responder is shooting too low
This is great news and all, but shouldn't we have done this in 2002?
Don't get me wrong, we might not have gotten him then, but we didn't even try even though it was a full 9 months after 9/11.
It's still a good day but it could've been a good day 4 years ago as well.
You said I sounded like "one of those freaks"...maybe I took you incorrectly...
No matter how you try to spin this, you can't say this is a bad thing.
Well that depends on what happens next.
just in time to boost those poll numbers.
While agreeing with freeny's response, I have to say that the "freaks" comment was, shall we say, a poor choice of words...especially since freeny himself characterizes it as "shooting too low". iGary simply posed a thoughtful moral/ethical question. I think we can discuss the matter without projecting opinions onto other people.
And as far as paying out $25 mil to informants...I consider it money well spent.
I must say that I watched Bush this morning and he did have a certain swagger.
He was also less sweaty then usual.
and to iGary, although I never said you were a freak, I appologize.
