What I find intresting is what they are NOT saying. They used SEAL team six, which is the hostage rescue team (equivalent to the Army's Delta force). Also, despite it being a SEAL team, that evacted to the USS Carl Vinson , the op used BLACKHAWK helicopters. That means US Army. (The USN uses Seahawks, the USAF uses Night Hawks and Pave Hawks, the USMC doesn't use that type at all).

Could The 160th SOAR have been used? Or some other unit ? I notice that in the photo the wreckage is painted OD, which suggests US Army. Anybody else pick up anything?


the Chucky Vee!!! my one and only disassociated sea tour! ...i was on board when Clinton tossed the wreath into Pearl Harbor to commemerate the 50th VJ day...also aboard when Clinton decided to send a few gift wrapped Tomahawks Saddam's way...ah, memories...

First thing I did tonight when I got home was to pour a nice glass of sipping whiskey and toast the United States Navy.  This ol'e ground pounder is proud of you!  I love the Seals and all the support troops involved.  Well planned and executed op.  Very nice guys.  Very nice.

I fed the dog tonight knowing that around the world Osama is feeding the fish.  Need another whiskey.  I'm going to toast the fish,too.

"The idea behind Desert One wasn't a bad one-they just picked a bad site and had some miscommunication in execution and withdrawal strategies. :

Since then an Australian company has developed a portable helicopter landing pad that suppresses the sand so you won't get the engine intake problems they ran into.

They now sell small versions to use at your campsite so you won't track sand into your tent or RV.

Says a lot about OBL that he tried to use his wife as human shield...but definitely no out of character. Loathsome creature and world is better without him.

World seems to be quite surprised why americans are celebrating. Why not? They have been taught to think OBL as their biggest enemy. I believe OBL is only stronger now, like Ben Kenobi in Star Wars. RIP Osama. He was a great warrior defending Afganistan against Soviet Union. Now he was old and only an icon and americans decided now would be good time to play Osama card to give something to american people. Or did Obama need that victory?

Gongrats to americans for achieving "some kind of victory"!

It's a shame that Erik doesn't allow profanity here in the forums. He had this coming for a really long time. My only hope is that the fish have found a way to his cold carcass. That way, he'd be good for at least something.

I do not think its surprising.

OBL had to be hunted down, if only to bring him to justice. He was the mastermind behind
the only successful terrorist attack in this scale on US soil that originated beyond US borders.

To be honest, it put a smile on my face too. He did not deserve to live after what he initiated.

What happens now with Al Q and the "global war against terrorism" is another story and has absolutely
nothing to do with OBL being dead or alive. He was already out of the command chain long ago because it was his
only hope to survive the hunt.

         Heroes do not kill innocent people on the scale Bin laden did. (either Muslim, Christian or any other religion)
Thats why most of the moderate world including the muslim world call them TERRORISTS.They are nobodys  heroes except to people who are like them.
Personally I do not like that term  because in the case of Osama Bin Laden it is too good and if I had to write in Arabic on these forums what I think I would get Banned.

And terrorists don't kill innocent people on the scale that nations do. Even peanut allergy or coal plant pollution kill much more than terrorism. But hey, let them celebrate killing their former ally. This whole thing is just a great hoax.

You're entitled to your opinion. I'm entitled to mine. No, this is not the end of the 'international war on terrorism' but it was an important step to delete the figurehead of this international movement.

Regardless whether your prophecies of 'hoax' are correct (I believe otherwise), one has to admire the skill, audacity and planning of the operators that carried out the raid. First class professionalism all the way.

So, you're ok with the killing of innocent people at work? Interesting. And you think that it is not as bad as having died from a peanut allergy. Very interesting.

But, it takes a lot of apologists for people like UBL to survive in the world. You, my friend, are one of them.

Time for another whisky.

It is and it stinks. I don't doubt that he's dead, the question is only.. when did he die? Yesterday? I doubt.

Don't feed the trolls in this off topic. Trolls have a strong feeling that they are the "good guys". War criminals are not war criminals if they are the "good guys", like Kissinger, George W Bush, Wolfowitz. Osama is not even in the same league because his kill list is too small.

Eye for an eye -

All the same.

That circle never ends the good way.

Of course, Mr. Bin Laden was someone who simply had to die, but there are many more, and far worse ones, still out there. In this case, getting rid of the body ASAP was of course a must. How the American people reacted to the event, however, is a different thing... Someone compare to photos of Talibans & CO. at 11/09/2001.

Maybe you should have then understood to not post at the tone you did in the topic this happens to be.

Lähinnä huvitti jenkkilän juhlinta. Niiden asenne ei ainakaan auta, ja sitten ihmetellään että miksi kaikki vihaa niitä. Sataprosenttisesti itseaiheutettua, ja artistihan maksaa...
