I'm thinking he'll never be captured. He'll just 'disappear'.
2001-11-18 06:53:53 PM  
Good now just nuke the hell out of those 30 square miles, and the world will be a better place.
2001-11-18 06:55:32 PM  
nuking things doesnt make the world a better place

The special forces arrived near Kandahar 10 days ago to block off escape routes and engage the enemy. "It has been about aggression and surprise," said one source. "We want to send a clear message that there is no safe way out to the rear of the Kandahar position."

The "Kandahar Position" is Afghan man on top, goat on its back. No safe way to do it.

Let's hope he's actually INSIDE those thirty square feet eh
2001-11-18 06:59:24 PM  
er miles
square miles
2001-11-18 07:00:46 PM  
Goodbye farkhead!!
2001-11-18 07:05:15 PM  
I hope that "Usama" or "Osama" (whatever) is captured by the Brits or the Americans. If the Northern Alliance gets their hands on him, I doubt that we'll never find out the truth.
2001-11-18 07:05:34 PM  
I'm told that the Middle East doesn't really fear or respect the American military. The UK military, however, is greatly feared. Apparently because its much more intelligent and cunning.
2001-11-18 07:06:56 PM  
Well, as long as he doesn't get the Fox News Channel, he's dead.
2001-11-18 07:07:50 PM  
30 square miles of surface area, and 30,000 square miles of caves and tunnels.
2001-11-18 07:15:07 PM  
That 30 sq. mile area is soon to be known as "The Great Afghan Plains."
2001-11-18 07:15:32 PM  
30 sq miles is like 900 miles of caves and shiat...

Yeah that's REALLY narrowed it down hasn't it?
2001-11-18 07:16:32 PM  
duuunnnnn dunt
duunnnnnn dunt
dunt dunt dunt dunt
2001-11-18 07:17:08 PM  
yeah he'll somehow dissapear, just like richard kimble
2001-11-18 07:18:38 PM  
Just remember, San Francisco is only 49 sq miles, and it's not that big at all...
2001-11-18 07:20:04 PM  
Slowly lower him feet first into a giant meat no wait...make him slide down a 50 foot razor blade into a pool of no wait...
2001-11-18 07:20:23 PM  
Why would we be telling the world we are so close? He would commit suicide, and become a hero.
2001-11-18 07:22:18 PM  
Kick him in the nards.
2001-11-18 07:24:13 PM  
San Fran is only 49 sq. miles?? Yeesh. Toronto (incl. Etobicoke and Scarborough and whatnot) is 250 or thereabouts.
2001-11-18 07:26:48 PM  
Stay tuned! Wheeeeee!

Looks like Newbaca got nailed by the f. p. filter...
2001-11-18 07:27:57 PM  
Problem: Osama is hidden 30 square miles of caves.

Solution: One nuke.
2001-11-18 07:29:55 PM  
At least Fb- agrees with me....
2001-11-18 07:30:38 PM  
Newbaca has been thrown forward in time? Then the filters have already.......
2001-11-18 07:32:50 PM  
Tell us what the future is like Nebaca...
Are there flying cars?
Is Fb- our leader?
2001-11-18 07:33:56 PM  
I'd like to see Osama captured alive, arrested by a member of the NYPD, and put on trial in a courthouse in lower Manhatten. Federal charges can wait, a New York Jury should get first crack at him.
2001-11-18 07:36:44 PM  
DrRatchet--Sounds good. But first let the FBI have fun interrogating the SOB. It'll be like that scene in that Martin Lawrence movie (Blue Streak I think it was) where he slams that guy around... LOL!!! And they should sell tickets, with proceeds going to the September 11 fund!
2001-11-18 07:37:29 PM  
Two words: hydrogen bomb.
2001-11-18 07:37:52 PM  
Maybe bin Laden will pull a "Judge Crater".
2001-11-18 07:39:07 PM  
I doubt we will ever find bin Laden. In the event that we do, I think he should be brought back to America and put on trial in a military court. And he is not going to sit on death row forever like everyone else, he goes straight to the good ole' fashioned Texas hot seat.
2001-11-18 07:39:30 PM  
How about having OBL take a walking tour of all 50 states with the FDNY in charge of his security?
2001-11-18 07:40:55 PM  
Do you guys honestly think that

1. Osama would ever let us take him alive.
2. We would even try to take him alive.

C'mon guys. Think.
2001-11-18 07:42:14 PM  
Looks like Newbaca is only three hours or so into the future.

Dude! Tell me what happens on X-Files!
2001-11-18 07:42:35 PM  
shiat. Somebody must have left one of these open...

2001-11-18 07:45:07 PM  
I remember when people were talking about the taliban like they were german storm troopers who would fight to the last man. A week later and the N.A. control most of the country.
2001-11-18 07:45:53 PM  
I agree with FB...

If I were the soldier with the schmuck in the sights of my rifle, how could I not just unload my entire clip on the bastard? If my orders were to capture, not kill, I'd find it very difficult to not just blow the bastage into the next time zone.

2001-11-18 07:50:58 PM  
30 megatons...30 sq. mls. .... that should just about do it dontcha think?

2001-11-18 07:51:37 PM  
If anybody finds Osama first, it's going to be our CIA operatives in there. They will not try to capture him. They will have a sniper rifle trained to his head and will show his brains the light of day.
2001-11-18 07:52:11 PM  
MLRS means not having to say you're sorry.
2001-11-18 07:52:15 PM  
[image from too old to be available]
so sorry
2001-11-18 07:54:57 PM  

That's because of the Toronto MegaCity initiative. Sure, Toronto's huge when you merge the city and all of the suburbs. If SF did that, they'd be enormous.
2001-11-18 07:59:13 PM  
Cheshire_cat_sf: please, justify your previous statement w/your years of experience in military matters. By any chance are you John Keegan?
2001-11-18 08:00:11 PM  
If he even made it back to the US theyd have to take him around in a Pope-mobile to avoid someone trying to shoot his ass.

If (and this is a huuuge if) he was put on trial, convicted, and sentenced to death, I think it'd be the first nationally televised execution.

But what I really think will happen is he'll shoot himself and make himself a martyr before he is captured alive.
2001-11-18 08:00:41 PM  
Jack Straw, the British foreign secretary, telephoned Dr Abdullah Abdullah, his alliance counterpart, who said last night: "If you are talking about the presence of thousands of fighting troops from outside Afghanistan, this is a major issue which has to be discussed.

Jack Straw from Witchita cut his buddy down, dug for him a shallow garve and laid his body down.

And WTF kind of name is "Abdullah Abdullah" anyway, sorta like Joe Joe? or more like Smith Smith?
2001-11-18 08:00:56 PM  
tick tick tick....... time is running out.
2001-11-18 08:01:31 PM  
not really "breaking news" as it was announced on friday, but thanks anyways
2001-11-18 08:02:34 PM  
one other note "Tony Blair is growing increasingly frustrated with the administration of President George W. Bush for not pursuing diplomatic and humanitarian initiatives more vigorously.
Damn, even Tony is getting fed up with GW.........

I guess he didnt get his 300$ check for Social Security being ruined??
2001-11-18 08:03:17 PM  
"MLRS means not having to say you're sorry."

Jph, that's going in my quote file.

Zkm: Do I get a cut of the royalties?
