if i didnt know about the relationship the bin laden family had with the u.s., and funding, training osama received from the usa, i would be sadened too by his death. but since this is just another ...


It would be the lie of the century, and honestly, I don't think we're good enough to pull that off.

Think about what it would involve.

First we would have to get pakistan to collaborate a story which puts them in a very bad light and also causes instability within the country.  We didn't have enough money for someone to turn in OBL, and I don't think we have enough money to buy pakistan's compliance with a lie this big.  Do we have enough money to buy off the wives?  They have been confirmed to be his actual wives by family correct?

It has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with  basic human decency.
.


What "basic human decency" you are referring to? What is your bottom line? Do you not see

this as human decency?

One wrong does not cancel out another wrong.  The two have nothing to do with each other.

with that logic, should we say anything that is done to germany is acceptable because of hitler?

So, as far as your logic goes, the more than 1.45 million Iraqi deaths had nothing to do with the persecution

and execution of Saddam Hussein? They died because they were around when the Americans dropped their

bombs! Is that what you are implying, as collateral damage? They just happened to be there to be killed! No

faults of the Americans per se!. Right?

terrorists act outside their governments and target civilians

They dont always target civilians and they usually exist because they dont have the numbers to fight conventional wars.  And because they're easier targets than the military.

The Allies deliberately targeted and killed civilians-100's of thousands of them in WW2-many considered that an act of terrorism.

Not that im justifying terrorism, its appalling that innocent people are murdered in this way.  But one American or Brit life has no higher value than one life from anywhere else.


Does it ?

#34 - Furthermore, what does it have to do with Bin Laden?  Except for the fact he wanted to take saddam out of power?

Are you suggesting that we acted together with OBL on the iraq war?
