josepp BS: obit: Osama Bin Laden ??? (1217* d) RE: BS: obit: Osama Bin Laden ??? 03 May 11

/////""What right would the US have to complain if we kept telling the SAS that we didn't have that high priority terrorist target when they can see he's living in Washington DC six blocks from the White House?""

Disingenuous Josepp.

You know damn well that would not be the response. The next day the President would be demanding that the members of that SAS unit be handed over to the US for trial, and threatening military action if they were not./////

No, I do not know that damn well and neither do you. And even if the US did that, Pakistan is in no position to so who cares?

"You came into our country illegally and took Bin Laden!"

"Well, you swore you didn't have him after we gave you billions of dollars in aid as an ally."

Now what does Pakistan say? No, Pakistan is going to be very quiet. Look at it this way, one day your car is missing and you ask your neighbor if he saw anything. He says no. Then one day, he opens his garage door and you could SWEAR that's your missing car in there! You go to the cops who tell you, "We need more than that. You have to prove it's your car." So you open the guy's garage while he's at work and it's definitely yours. Now who are the cops going to arrest? You for breaking into his garage or him for grand theft auto?

////Where is the moral justification for doing to others what you would not accept being done to you?/////

You want deeply religious president, Don? I've had enough of those. I want a practical one and what Obama did was practical. I'd be furious with a president who refused to act on religious grounds.

////The end achieved was a worthwhile one, rather spoiled by the means used to achieve it.////

And you know damn well you'd have done exactly the same thing if you were in Obama's shoes. You know if you ask permission, Bin Laden will be spirited away and then Pakistan will deny he was ever there. By doing it this way, Pakistan is exposed for the lying, two-faced bastards they are. They're the ones with explaining to do. As far as I am concerned Obama was perfectly justified.

/////I would be quite interested in hearing the opinion of the UN on this one, but I fear they will wimp out.////

Anyone heere who thinks Obama was wrong to do it this way, tell me what you would have done if you were in his place. I know this is going to be GOOD.
