Is it just me or does Osama Bin Laden remind you of Goldstein from 1984? In the book Goldstein is described as a weak looking cowardly man
representing all that is opposite to the totalitarian regime portrayed in the book. No one knew where he was or if he was alive, he was just a
personification of all those against the regime.
I therefore believe that the West, particularly America, want Bin Laden to stay at large because:
A) The continued war on terror will keep up support for the Republicans, as US voters tend to agree with their hard line on terror.
B) Any anti-American sentiment can be linked to this man, a weak cowardly looking terrorist. Any suggestion of unfair trade or double standards and
you are linked immediatly to this lunatic.
Although this is just an opinion, I am sure that it cannot have escaped the minds of those in power, that Bin Laden is more useful at large...
