    I hope it doesn't lead to more violence but think it will, for the short term at least.

    Just turned on news as well and its showing that killed yesterday.

    Hopefully not result in more trouble.

    Oh and one of his sons has been popped off as well .
     
  14. Yep!:D looks like this is more then a rumer this time!

    Daft thought, but don't these relegions have to be buried the same day they die? (anyone know?) and if so won't that bring more trouble if the USA do in deed have his body?

    Then of course there were 70 virgins!
    This is just a premature message of of hope for peace in a world that, in reality, has very little of either.
    The most sought after yet most elusive man in the world has been surrounded by myths and rumours for more than a decade and today the absolute truth of him has been lost in the lies and the propaganda which have spread like wildfire.
    There was no evidence to ever suggest that Bin Laden was alive after 2001. Many videos of Osama portrayed him as a severely ill man and many were concluded to be fake which also raised the question about him still being alive?

    America failed to capture the man they were so desperate to bring to justice for allegedly orchestrating the 9/11 atrocity and the failure in itself has been a huge embarrassment for the U.S Government. This is just an attempt to save face and an opportunity to lay an old ghost to rest.

    Truth is, there will always be Bin Ladens just as there will always be Governments manipulating the truth for their own ends. The real people behind 9/11 couldn't give a twopenny **** about the world or the countless others they don't want to share it with. It is their world and they will shape it as they see fit.

    Furthermore, it is beneficial for this 'War on Terror' to have an arch-villain.

    Will the next fall guy please step forward.
