It will probably make a Hollywood Blockbuster, when all the truth has been redacted.

I suspect that the Hollywood Blockbuster follow-up will be 'Al Qaeda - The Empire Strikes Back' ... :shock: :(

which of these reasons lead to think dumping the body at sea is a good idea?....
a. because they're not sure it was him, but can claim it is
b. as a spiteful and vindictive act against his (and his follower's) religion - which risks imflaming the situation

One man's revenge is another man's spiteful and vindictive act.

Osama bin Ladin had his spiteful and vindictive act with 9-11 now the USA has its
and off we go again and again.

We used to laugh at the African's having their silly tribal wars, now look at us.

I thought that there was a problem throwing rubbish into the sea untreated. So why are the Merkins throwing bin liners into the sea?

As the papers are saying, what he stood for is most definitely not dead. Until 9/11 I guess I lived in blissful ignorance of what those not in the western world thought of us.

After 9/11 I asked myself why would someone hate westerners so much? And then I started to look around me with a different set of eyes and started to get a bit of a feel for why, but the papers and western governments don't talk about that much. As for the freedom of the press, I don't see much said about the 'other side's' point of view, so it really is difficult to get a balanced view, just a simple view as portrayed by the western media.

Oops, am I on an MI5 watch list now?

Sod the balanced view ...
"Mass murderer gets killed by soldiers"
..... good result.
Discuss your need for a balanced view with the families of his victims.....
We had all this heart wringing during The Long War in Ulster .., kill the terrorists and a few of them may suddenly realise that being an MP etc is better than being a body bag .... isnt that right Mr McGuinness....

and he has some equivalent person on the other side, so we are all destined to go on forever just like the African tribes. We could see how stupid they were from a distance, but WE are different. :roll:

Neither. It was convenient and avoids a known grave becoming a shrine. As for being against his religion? Is mass murder not also against Islam. Either yes, in which case he can't complain about the USA not following Islamic rules, or no in which case I don't think non Moslems should be obliged to follow the rules.

As for inflaming the situation? I'm not sure it makes that much difference whether you put bullets in his head and bury at sea or put bullets in his head and hand the body over to someone else to bury. They are not going to be happy either way.

The question wouldn't have arisen if he hadn't killed thousands of people.
No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?

How very sexist to portray 'pippa' as just a pair of buttocks !!!!!

Every inch of her appears to be 'very sexy' ... drool, drool :D
