    My thoughts and opinions are that this is not local to Washington, has absolutely nothing to do with open carry and belongs in the social lounge. There are already at least two threads about this in the social lounge. Your thoughts/questions should be raised in one of those threads.
    A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.- Thomas Jefferson March 4 1801

    And he is pronounced "dead" on the same day Hitler was. Let's not forget that one...

    There are posts in the social lounge as well as other threads on the WA forum as well. But, eh....

    But it has everything to do with Washington OC! It is because of Madman like him that I must arm myself each and every day in protecting my family and self.

    Doesn't matter. He won as proved by incidences like http://consumerist.com/2011/04/forme...-employee.html

    And did killing Pablo Escobar end the WoD? Of course not. New leaders and other Cartels stepped right in to fill the void, and grow their illicit industry to an even larger scale (i.e. Narco subs).

    The WoD is designed to be unwinnable -- profitable for both sides and a tool to erode civil rights, but unwinnable.

    Same with the WoT, it's designed to be unwinnable... designed to reduce our freedom... designed to make a lot of money for some companies/people.

    Sure, theoretically I'm glad he's dead, but I'm not stupid enough to think it will change anything for the better in regards to the WoT -- our risk of terror attacks are the same (probably higher now), and our risk of being screwed by our own government over this 'War" on "Terror" is just as high.

    I was wondering, "was the bullet(s) that finished him off FMJ or Hollow point?"

    AFAIK the military can't use hollow points. I think there was some Convention about that, but I could be wrong

    The big question is, "did they shoot him 250,000 times."

    US forces have fired so many bullets in Iraq and Afghanistan - an estimated 250,000 for every insurgent killed

    I heard today on KOMO that "we shouldn't rejoice in someone else's pain" I can guarantee that if they shot him in the head the only thing he felt was A large looming fear and A growing pile in his pants. There was no pain involved.
    I truly Love my Country, But the government scares the he!! out of me.

    DEMAND IT
    Congress SHALL NOT receive A salary greater than any service member and will be given EQUIVELANT insurance as any service member

    I came into this world kicking and screaming covered in someone else's blood. And if necessary to protect the Constitution of The United States of AMERICA. I will go out the same way

    Seems odd to me that he would be buried at sea so soon. The US is able to immediatly extract his body and dump it at sea? I think they are trying to flush him out, someone will make a mistake defending him still being alive and slip up. What torks me is watching Bin Ladins little brother on tv, I cant believe Obama had the balls to say that the most important thing to him is Keeping America safe and our borders secure???????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????
    If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    That was the Hague convention, and also I believe a ruling was made about counter terrorism or some such and the use of hollow points.

    Riiiight.

    SO if we just leave the middle east & do everything the terrorists want they'll just leave us alone & stop blowing people up, right?

    Y'know, since such a policy worked out so well with Hitler it must be worth another shot.

    Perhaps the war on terror IS unwinnable. But it is also, most certainly, LOOSABLE. I'll take never winning over loosing, myself.

    Ya i personally am waiting to see the other shoe drop on this issue. I think its so interesting that this war was started when Bush tanked the economy so he started a war.... Now Obama is getting ready to run for the presidency yet again in 2012 and they all of sudden get the #1 terrorist after what 9 years?

    Ya i think its all a bunch of bull but thats just my opinion......


    P.S. just to make it OC related im sure the person who shot him was OCing something.......

    Negative.

    It is strategically superior to conceal carry as to "surprise" the enemy with your ninja firearm skills. Therefore, Seal Team 6 was undoubtedly concealed carrying...

    Seems perfectly logical to me. Islamic tradition requires burial within 24 hours, and we know sensitive Fearless Leader is to other cultures...

    Then there's the fact no other country wanted the corpse for land burial, at least not within that window, and then you'd have the prospect of such a grave either being desecrated or becoming a shrine for other radicals.

    And there's always the possibility of the damned & tormented soul rising from the dead to terrorize the living, so strong was his anger. At least it'll take a few months to walk back to land from the bottom of the sea

    Tell me, then, exactly what did Bush do that tanked the economy in the 7 or 8 months between his taking office and the start of the Afghan war?

    Someone posted on a different forum that the appropriate "at sea" burial location would have been the Bay of Pigs.

    I cant imagine an American even caring what islamic traditions are. There must have been a muslim leader involved to be sure one of his people were treated properly for carrying out allahs wishes. I wonder what muslim could be in such a position in America and have such an authority to be sure this happened?

    Yes but that's a long sail from the Gulf and then you get into that whole "tortured soul rising from the dead" thing again.

    Considering the rising Muslim population in this Country that isn't supporting the "Jihadists" it was probably a wise move to give his body this consideration. Our military has Muslim Chaplin's as well as for all the other faiths. Not all that hard to have one available, especially on a Carrier.

    BTW, those "Islamic" traditions are no different than "Jewish" traditions. They both have the same origin.
