What in intel failure. Or what a lie that he was in Tora-Bora. Either way, how many US service personnel dead.

Time for an investigation, and not just of the Pakis.

Hate to break it to you, but Pakistan has nukes. The USA has never gone to war against a nuclear power, nor will it ever, because we're still smart enough to realize that doing so can not end well. That is why we sent in a SEAL team using maximum stealth instead of just blazing in with a flight bombers while playing "Flight of the Valkyries" in the background. We did what we did to make sure that no actual official Pakistani national troops were involved, thus giving us legal lubrication to slip out of any accusations of "Acts of War."

He was in Tora Bora for the first 8 months. When we first hit Afghanistan, he WAS there, in his nice little cave. I'm sure the ISI planted plenty of misinformation to make sure we stayed there, searching all those other caves while they moved bin Laden over to Pakistan and stashed him in that compound. Or more likely moved him around in Pakistan for a while.

Which is why it took so long for us to finally locate him. I'm not sure why people think that every country has even as little control over their secret agencies as America. In many places, the secret police are practically a shadow government, and don't answer to anyone except their own chiefs. See also Syria, btw.

the sure have some excellent fiction writers working in those think tanks, who continue to come up with great new angles to support the 'official' 9/11 bs. Is there still any dead horse carcass left to flog? is the real question.

madgonad: The Pakistani government, leadership, and the majority of their people are not our friend. They are our enemy. While not every person in Pakistan agrees, the nation itself is our adversary. They created the Taliban. They allowed Khan to spread nuclear secrets to rogue organizations and governments. They have waged a warm war against India through terrorism for decades. They contribute nothing to the world besides hate, fear, and cheap tactical knives. Just because they were once part of the British Empire doesn't make them anything to us. As soon as we are out of Afghanistan (the sooner the better) we should tell Pakistan to kiss off and fully support India. They had their chance to make nice and they didn't.


This! And if possible, while turning off the lights behind us, maybe have some cruise missiles take out any military assets we have given them for their "cooperation" these past 10 years...

depmode98: Remember when Republicans had a shiatstorm when Obama said we'd unilaterally act within Pakistan if we had actionable intelligence? Yea. Bin Ladin would still be alive today if McCain was the president. If you're serious about being strong on terror, you have to vote for Democrats. Anything less is pandering bullshiat.


What if you're serious about Peace? Who do you vote for then?

Yeah, that's why cowardly Clinton lobbed a couple cruise missiles and chose not to kill Bin Laden years before 9/11. NONE of this mess would have happened if HE hadn't been so gutless in the late 90's.

9/11 was a mossad false flag.

Yep, I'm sure that won't touch off a shiatstorm at all. Certainly wouldn't create an entire new generation of people that would stop at nothing to kill us due to our past actions.

How about we call it job done, get out of that entire region and if we're feeling particularly vindictive, we start throwing more money at India so that they can remain solid counterweight to Pakistan in the region. This business of sticking our noses in everywhere and then getting outraged when the locals don't like it will have to end sooner or later. Either we can't keep this up due to the costs required to constantly start shiat, or someone is going to punch our collective ticket one of these days.


That is more of a case to go scorched earth on them before they can find a willing partner.

Not only do you get rid of the problems with AQ through total war, you've also gotten rid of the people that were siding with China. Since Pakistan is acting against the US in such a manner, the only possible way to fix things is to make Pakistan much like 1860's Georgia - except completely flattened, broken, and without any China or AQ supporters.

All that does is tell what weapon the US has to bring to what kind of fight. Taking them out would be a matter of scale.

With enough firepower and enough surprise, Pakistan wouldn't know what hit them, much less have anyone or anything for which to make a response. Having a nuclear bomb does not automatically mean you have the ability to launch.

Ultimately, this was all Britain's fault.

Why?

If it wasn't for Britain deciding to split their colony of India into West Pakistan, India and East Pakistan, there wouldn't even BE a Pakistan now. The Pakistanis have shown themselves to be bastards before now- witness their rape, carnage and pillage of East Pakistan when a majority of the people there decided they wanted to be their own country (Bangladesh).

It's TRUE in many cases that a leopard's spots don't change...

I'd say we definitely do not give these goons another nickle, although I'm sure the Apologist in Chief is probably crafting a loveletter and mixtape to them to be delivered if he gets re-elected.

911 conspiracies aside, i don't believe the killing of OBL reinforced USA's image of being a country of liberty or justice. I think we are treading into dangerous territory when we start to disallow habeas corpus depending on the context of the crime committed.

...but it's easier to just call Americans imperialists rather than mention that a large part of the problems of Africa and Asia have to do with the Colonial European powers drawing up borders willy-nilly and putting people that hated each others guts together in the same nation. And if they didn't hate each other, playing them off each other until they did.
