That's not the real OBL. It's a look-alike. Examine in a genuine photo the ratio of the length of the nose to the width of the eyes; compare that to the skinny mofo in this video.

I think this is a BS thing. Also notice that this "OBL" speaks plainly, no religious crap in the way, wheras the real OBL was flowery and filled with religious Islamist crud.

I call shenanigans.

Anyone else shocked at how similar the speach sounds to something that bush would say? It's really shocking, Bush need Obl to stay in power and OBL need Bush to stay in power.

How is saying "Bush lied to america for 3 years" something Bush would say? What fantasy world are you living in?
2004-10-29 05:49:41 PM  
>Bush had his chance to nail this guy, and he blew it.

Exactly. Not only should we never have gone into Iraq, but we let Rumsfeld plan the war. A civilian! He dismissed all the war college plans and decided that in the New America, egomaniacs are better than military strategists. Man, and the GOP is supposed to be pro-Military?

Guiliani just blamed the troops for the lost expolosives.

Not just on Fark either.

It's four days until the election all you Bushies continue to have is idiotic personal attacks.

Go suck it. If this country elects Bush this country will get what it deserves... a continued Corporate-elitist power structure and a destoryed middle class leading to an economic colapse. Bush economics don't make sense... and that is what will REALLY make us vulnerable.

Fundamentalists all the sound alike. They are all just as crazy, hateful, biased, and out of touch.

OBL needs Bush to survive.

Dunno about you all but I feel MUCH safer now that Saddam is in custody...

I usually don't get involved in these kind of threads but...

Why is this man still alive?! Why is he allowed to hide with his thugs and have access to the infrastructure to make and send tapes? What is going on? I don't understand. If you had told me in 2001 that Omsama would still be free to go as he pleases three years later I wouldn't have believed you.

John Kerry is too big a pu$$y to deal with the war on terror.

Hell, Kerry's wife has more balls than he does.

So a guy that steers his gun boat towards a shore that he's receiving fire from, gets out, chases down the guy shooting at him and his crew, shoots and kills the farking guy is a pussy, huh? farking dipshiat. Get a clue - if anyone gets the "pussy" tag, it's Bush. He ducked every bit of duty he could while Kerry was out taking care of business.

If you think UBL was offered to Clinton on a silver platter, you are not a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, conservative or liberal, but a weak-minded douche.
2004-10-29 05:51:44 PM  
So long as the focus is on foreign policy, Bush has an advantage.

Not anymore, This will be a reminder to people on why bush is WRONG for the job, still after 3 years OBL is still free to roam around the world and we would have been able to get him had we not shifted to Iraq.
2004-10-29 05:51:48 PM  
Actually forgot to mention, but reminded by the snow comment; I wanna get to Banff there in Feb for some skiing...

Do yourself a favour Gray and head to Jasper. Better town, less polluted with tourist-trap shiat, access to better downhill.

Back on topic.... that UBL, that Bush, that Kerry, yadayadayadayada.

I don't suppose any of those people would care to admit they were wrong.

He's got a point there. Thank God I wasn't one of those people. I hope.

Wytechocolate said, "100,000? I think your math is wrong. Whatever the number, this is assuming that every Iraqi killed wasn't a Saddam or al-Qaeda loyalist"

From the article I linked to:
Most of the civilian deaths were attributed to attacks by US-led forces, largely in the form of airstrikes, and most of the reported deaths were of women and children, according to the study.
Is John's Hopkins a reputable enough source for you?

You can suck a fart out of my a55hole.

UncleFriendly --
Have you read the full transcript of that press conference?

...I know he is on the run. I was concerned about him, when he had taken over a country. I was concerned about the fact that he was basically running Afghanistan and calling the shots for the Taliban.

But once we set out the policy and started executing the plan, he became -- we shoved him out more and more on the margins. He has no place to train his al Qaeda killers anymore. And if we -- excuse me for a minute -- and if we find a training camp, we'll take care of it. Either we will or our friends will. That's one of the things -- part of the new phase that's becoming apparent to the American people is that we're working closely with other governments to deny sanctuary, or training, or a place to hide, or a place to raise money.

In other words, it's not really Osama that's the problem, but his organization. Perhaps you disagree with this, but I'm firmly in the camp that cells which are active and distributed worldwide are a lot more dangerous than an individual in hiding. An Osama "on the margins" isn't nearly as dangerous as a field operative with weapons and a team ready to go.

2004-10-29 05:52:16 PM  
2004-10-29 05:42:57 PM UncleFriendly

"So I don't know where [Osama bin Laden] is. You know, I just don't spend that much time on him, Kelly, to be honest with you. ...And, again, I don't know where he is. I -- I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."

This was after Bush realized that Osama only funded al-Qaeda, the majority of their funding had been cut off, and that most of al-Qaeda leaders had been captured or neutralized. Osama was no longer a threat.

I can not believe this guy is still out there mocking us after he killed 3,000 people on our on soil and you people are talking about what a great job Bush is doing. Unbelievable.

Are you kidding? They didn't get Hitler in South America until 1953.
2004-10-29 05:52:35 PM  
I think its safe to assume that if he could be bombing something he'd be bombing something, not running his mouth.
2004-10-29 05:52:39 PM  
Mechanically Separated Chicken:
I don't care which political side of the spectrum youre on. Osama didn't come out of hiding for the last 3 years just to say hi. Expect an attack within the next few days. To expect otherwise would be idiocy. This is a very consistent motus operendi for him, and I am very surprised that the threat level hasn't been raised.

Remember what these people are capable of. Keep your eyes and ears open, especially when in large crowds. Remember, it isn't paranoia if their really are out to get you. When the shiat hits the fan, do everything possible to fight back....

Ok, I'll vote for Bush. I am now convinced that Osama is the CEO of a Duct Tape Factory.
2004-10-29 05:52:45 PM  
Whoever is the POTUS in 2005, he will be, still at war with people who will go to any lengths to kill as many American Citizens as they can regardless of their political beliefs.

Tallguywithglasseson.... Then why has Bill Clinton explained WHY he didn't accept the offer if it was never made?
2004-10-29 05:53:02 PM  
Osama bin Laden today said that he attacked the WTC partly becasue of what he saw America do in Lebenon during the 1980's.

So does that mean that Ronald Reagan is partly to blame for 9/11? He created Osama. Let's dig the Gipper up and kick his veggie ass!!

2004-10-29 05:53:09 PM  
I would bet that we haven't seen any further attacks here on US soil as OBL has figured out that we do a far better job of destroying ourselves when we are simply left alone. OBL is happy to just wait us out while we self destruct.
2004-10-29 05:53:11 PM  
Of course the timing is suspect. Its called October Surprise. And anyone who thinks people should change their votes based on what this farker says is an idiot.

I am voting for Kerry. And I do not want to cup Osama's nuts. Does your little neocon head asplode?
2004-10-29 05:53:21 PM  
Well, I was wrong. I am so amazed -- every indication was that OBL was killed at Tora Bora.

If he's popping up now that means another attack.

But I've been known to be wrong...

/shaking head in astonishment
2004-10-29 05:53:26 PM  
The man who attacked you on your own soil and killed 3000+ people, is on international TV laughing at you, and you tell us to go vote Bush?????

Okay, I'll bite.

I admit that Bush has never been anywhere close to having a chance to capture Osama bin Laden.

I do believe that DarthBrooks has won the BIGGEST ASSHAT EVER ON FARK AWARD.

Those pictures really piss me off. I bet he lives in the mountains or something and will never have to deal with terrorism.

Meanwhile, the people of New York City and of my hometown, Arlington, Virginia, home of the Pentagon, are voting for Kerry in droves. What does that tell you? Maybe we realize that Bush hasn't done a goddamn thing to make us safer. All he's done is ignore our real enemy and piss off new ones.

By the way, I bet you turned off at least one Bush voter.

The fact that BIn Laden is on the run doesn't make the world a safer place. When Bin Laden is in custody or dead, the world won't be any safer, either.

This is wrong. If Bin Laden is running and concerned about his personal safety, he doesn't have the time, luxory or chances that he had before. Look now, he has to rely on a media outlet to send out his "commandments", for a while, the world wasn't even sure he was alive anymore. Having a "maybe dead" leader is not as inspiring as having a "free to roam and strut about" leader in a lethal revolt/revolution.

And the custody/dead thing is a strawman. Everyone knows if we kill Bin Laden it will be WORSE.

HowlingFrog :

"There's a lot more evidence that your touted administration killed those people than there is that some guy in a cave commanded 19 magical muslims, and somehow made them invisible to surveillance cameras and passenger lists."

OH PLEASE, careful HowlingFrog, your tin-foil hat is showing. Aren't you late for that ufo rendevous?

Another thing that pisses me off in these flame wars (i cant wait for november third so I do not have to hear this again) Is people who think 'you are voting for guy A, you must be stupid' when in reality;
A. people have the RIGHT to choose
B. Some people read news papers and watch polical shoes more than others
C. Some people genuinely like their candidate

Bush and Kerry have some bad points and they have their good points. It is not a great idea for Kerry to base his whole platform on 'I am better than Bush' or 'Bush farked up', and he hasn't, we just hear about it from his supporters. Those who have earnetly paid attention during the past year and beyond will note that both candidates speak half-truths about each other. Why would Kerry flip flop when he knows what he likes and dislikes? He is not much of a flip flopper, he just says he likes something but doesn't fund it with money, the same things bush has done several times.

And with the way democrats have become, I really do not see much of a difference between Bush or Kerry, I likes Badnirik, but he has absolutly no chance of ever becoming president. I also likes McCain and Dean, but for some reason we get Kerry as our next president, and I am fine with that, as long as the majority of my country elected him, I personally am leaning towards Bush, but I feel neither you nor I has the right to tell someone how to vote it is their decision, whether they are black, white, poor, rich, retarded, drunk, etc...

Voting, the act itself, is what the politicians want you to do, in their favour. Being an informed voter is much more important. Not just seeing Farenheit 9/11 and saying 'Im voting for Kerry now!', I mean reading different sources of information and drawing an educated conclusion.

One thing is certain, about half of this country id going to be dissatisfied with whomever wins on tuesday, and we have to live with each other, and work with each other for as safer america, Bush or Kerry cannot help us as much as we can help ourselves, so I guess OBL was right in that statement.
