One less bad man in the world this morning. Good riddance.




Raverdave -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 5:47:23 AM)

Sounds like it...........by US troops on the ground.




Cribtop -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 5:55:46 AM)

Hot damn! Watching the news now. Major kudos to all involved in the Op.

Yes and we have the body so there will be no doubt. It was a JSOC operation inside Pakistan. Evidently they had been learned the approximate location last August but only recently confirmed he was there.

Praise Allah. [&o]

We got the body eh? I say string it up and it's pinata time on the Capitol Mall. [:D]




The Gnome -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 6:20:35 AM)

There is a special section on the bbc website detailing how his death will affect the royal couple's honeymoon, and which hats are appropriate for the celebration. (Sorry couldn't resist [:D])

On a serious note, thankful for the effort, heartache, and blood my military countrymen and those of our allies spent nailing this guy. Sounds like a humdinger of an op.




Feurer Krieg -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 6:40:06 AM)

Yay! [&o]




Sredni -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 6:52:02 AM)

About time. Killed in pakistan, and not in some wilderness hinterland either, rather what looks to be a fairly major city. I wonder if there was government compliance there letting him stay unmolested until now.

I wonder if the op to kill him was approved by pakistan [:D]


Kinda morbid I guess, but I hope they burn the body and dump the ashes in the ocean. The last thing we need is for a bunch of fanatics using bits and pieces of osama as holy objects.




DOCUP -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 7:14:14 AM)

Job well Done to the Men and Women who worked on the op. Also to the Men and Women serving and that served.

Sadly, at the same time you need to keep the body as proof, since any ambiguity in this area at all will be immediately seized upon by the mindless faithful or conspiracy theorists as proof he is still alive somewhere.

Congrats to U.S. intelligence and special ops teams.
America has patiently waited for this news.

Well done to the SEALs or whomever gets credit for this op in the end (news reports all over the map). I'll be hoisting a beer to OBL's demise in a couple of hours.

Cheers,

0730 here and I've opened a new bottle of my favorite 15 year old Rhum Barbancourt to celebrate. 

BRAVO ZULU to all involved and to all who have manned the wall for the last 10 years.  [sm=00000436.gif]




mg62 -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 12:56:09 PM)

Good News & Good Job to all who worked for a long time.  It sounds like the information took a long time to run down.




tocaff -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 1:04:56 PM)

[sm=00000436.gif][sm=character0272.gif][sm=happy0065.gif]

Well done to all involved over these past 10 years.

It's about time the US demonstrated that they will keep at something until the desired result is achieved.




John 3rd -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 2:19:08 PM)

It was/is surprising and pleasant news. My wife and I were talking while the President spoke and she immediately said---well...how quickly do you think the terrorists will strike back? Sobering thought at the time.

Well done to our servicemen/women!

Well, if you listen to some of the talking heads, the war is over, bring all the troops home, and disband the military. There is no more need for them.




Terminus -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 3:08:32 PM)

Then don't listen. Be happy that the world has one less asshole.




steamboateng -> RE: OT - They got Osama (5/2/2011 3:15:30 PM)

I was born in Franklin Roosevelt's administration, seen alot af political stuff since then. My hat's off to President Obama, (I didn't vote for him) who has shown to us simple Americans' a strong moral conviction in a belief of what we are and should hope to be.!
As a great Engishman once said,"Tthis is not the beginning of the end. But perhaps the end of the beginning!".
Regards to all.....

Churchill. I'd vote for him.

Nice operation.

If the ISI was protecting him, we may have penetrated their security. Having been involved peripherally in the chase back in the 1990s, I'm glad this is over. Reminds me of when the Soviet Union collapsed. Take the phone off the hook and get some sleep.

Great news, our worst enemy is dead, and the free world can breath a little easier.
