    Al Qaeda releases new message...confirms OBL is dead

    Here we go again... more of their crazy rants. Sounds like we picked up some excellent intel about the plans for future attacks against the US.

    Al Qaeda threats, terror plans surface - CNN.com

    Al Qaeda caught us with our pants down on 9/11... that mistake won't happen again.

    I see that they were successful in getting only 2 out of 3 tires to burn. How hard is it to pour gasoline on a tire and then ignite it?

    Re: Al Qaeda releases new message...confirms OBL is dead

    What the H is the goal of al qaeda? It appears to me---just to be a pain in the arse to the whole world, but for what reason? I can only suspect its because they view us as Duke, and themselves as some crappy ACC team and just want to bring us down because we are so successfull in comparison. Classic little man attitude. But, thats just my guess.

    The Islamist s need to eliminated permanently IMO. They're like our version of Westboro. It's too bad there's so many normal people in these countries that live along side these maniacs that be will hurt the most.

    What a shame that he has to share a country with bat-**** crazy violent Islamists. Taking away aid doesn't just hurt the hardliners unfortunately.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    In a nut shell (way oversimplified) their goal is to get Westerners and Western influence out of the Middle East, and also to install hard line Islamic Theocracies for the Govt's.

    Also, to grow really really massive beards.

    This is insane. How can normal British people possibly coexist with this?

    Based on the protests going on across the Middle East fueled by the younger generations it looks like a battle that they aren't going to win. People are tired of being controlled by these oppressive regimes. Their days are numbered.

    Also a lot of anger stirred up by their leaders against the 'evil west'. We get blamed for all their problems, while meanwhile their leaders are getting rich off the oil money when there should be more than enough for the people there to have a higher standard of living.

    So an entire religion is the same as Westboro and everyone who practices should be "eliminated"? Isn't that actually the same as saying that Westboro is a bunch of nuts so all Baptists should be eliminated? A couple of extremists does not define an entire group of people (other than hawkeye fans).

    The problem is here everyone thinks of westboro as a bunch of crackpots. Over there? Well you just need to look at the responses around the world to OBL's death to see what's different.

    Re: Al Qaeda releases new message...confirms OBL is dead

    I'm no Al qaeda expert, but I'd say CloneIce is a lot closer than Fickclone02. Bin Laden was born a multi-millionnaire and could have had a life of luxury, but he made his name in the Muslim world fighting the Russians in Afghanistan and was even called a freedom fighter by Reagan. But he was a religious fanatic from Saudi Arabia and became enraged at the Saudi Royal family (and the U.S.) when they allowed U.S. military bases in what he considered Islamic holy land, and of course this was done to protect U.S. oil interests and insure that the Saudi Royal Family stayed in power. The continued westernization was an affront to his fundamentalist beliefs, and like fundamentalist extremists of many religions throughout history, he and his followers used religion to justify their horrible atrocities. At least he finally got what he deserved.

    Absolutely not, that's not what I said. The Islamic extremists are the violent version of Westboro - they need to be eliminated for the good of the civilized world and so we don't have knee jerk reactions that harm all the decent people that live in those places like the kid in the story I posted.

    I agree, but the resistance group were called freedom fighters, not specifically Bin Laden. Unless there is a quote out there from Reagan that I have missed, that is misleading.

    Re: Al Qaeda releases new message...confirms OBL is dead

    True Cyclonepride, to be more specific I should have said that Reagan called the resistance "freedom fighters", which included the majadeen (sp) as well as Muslim foreign fighters including Bin Laden.
