Bin Laden: Killing the alibi


english.aljazeera.net

After long hijacking Arab and Muslim causes through its bloody attacks on Western targets, al-Qaeda has been discredited since 9/11 and its organisational capacity diminished by Western counter terror measures.

Al-Qaeda's bin Laden has provided the Bush administration with the excuse to launch its disastrous and costly wars in the greater Middle East.

As expected, Washington's wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan continued to provide al-Qaeda with fresh recruits and support in the Muslim world and perpetuate a cycle of violence that ripped through the region for the last decade.

Thought provoking and insightful article from Al Jazeeras Marwan Bishara from a very different perspective.

Although most Americans and the West in general may see todays actions as some sort of coup against international terrorism, the Muslim world will have very different feelings. Ranging from indifference to, in many ways, relief.

How exactly do Afghanistan and Pakistan fall into a "grater middle east"?

The answer to that would be 'geographically'.

Or am I misunderstanding you?

On CNN, I just saw Americans practically dancing in the streets, flag waving and cheering, cheering the murder of another human being. How uncooth, how utterly barbaric and how utterly stupid these people are to believe this cock and bull story about Bin Laudens assasination. This story reeks of fabrication! Bin Lauden reeks of fabrication! And people are buying it hook line and sinker! Is it just me? What utter horseshi$t!

Take a deep breath my friend because these are the days that make being a CTer a living nightmare. It is going to get worse before it is over.

Remember they will be flooding the Midwest through blasting methods today and the nightmares of a the tornado deluge has not even begun to be addressed and yet, its time to move along...

This makes the news and the horror of the families still suffering from the weather anomalies are laid to rest, much like OBLs body out in the ocean.

Many threads all on Obama's death. No commentary, only an article link and snippet. Closing thread.
