Osama unarmed when killed

OSAMA bin Laden offered resistance but was not armed when he was shot dead during a raid by a US special operations team on the compound where he lived in Pakistan for years. Big deal – neither were the three thousand odd civilians killed in New York during 9/11. I see no advantage in taking him to court where he would have a soap box to voice his hatred. The human rights lawyers would drag it out for years with the consequence of al-Qa’ida recruiting being the only winner. I’m a bit surprised he was killed by a head shoot – I would have thought aiming for the centre of the seen mass could have produced a chest or gut/spinal shot that would have been more painful and time consuming, yet would still achieve the final deserved result. More gloating details here. UPDATE: It doesn’t take long; Whats got more brains than Osama? The wall behind him! Apparently some of Bin Ladens family were killed in the shootuot. I guess this gives a new meaning to taking the bins out. Starbucks has introduced a new coffee special – the Osama Bin Latte! It has a fluffy white head with two shots in it! 6 Irishmen have just drowned dancing on Bin Ladens grave My mate’s girlfriend has called her g-spot ‘‘Osama’‘. She reckons it took him 10 years to find it, but when he did ….KABOOM! All stolen from The Punch More here


  • It didn’t occur to me but, Kev, you are dead right about gut/spinal shooting him to give him the death he fully deserved.

    The special forces guys, carrying him back to the ship in their helicopters could then have reassured him of:

    ‘No Islamo burial for you. We’ll wrap you up in dog fur and some pigskin and drop you over the side for the sharks to enjoy as a spot of lunch. Oh bye the bye, it ain’t 72 virgins waiting for you in a hot place. It’s a big guy, wears horn, red eyes, his breath is sulphur, nasty leer, chuckles evilly,he’s what you call Allah.’

  • Lucky for those US Navy guys that there is no Brig. McDade to charge them for their war crime of shooting an unarmed man.

    This is meant as a joke

    • I heard the reporters and others blathering on today about “They shot an unarmed man!”

      It’s not the fricking wild west, morons!

      These people are absolutely clueless.

  • there is the point, he was a mass murdering vermin and we are up against muslim depravity and they won’t stop until we have finished them off.

  • Surprised that the shot went wide…..the bridge of the nose is the correct placement.

  • The “double tap” to the head is an SF specialty. Ensures no retaliation and a quick and effective result.

    Conflicting reports about whether he was using one of his wives as a shield, as well.

    Either way, the maggot is dead,dead, dead.

  • And they will have pulled a mass of intel data from the compound. a lot a terrorists will not be sleeping well right now.

  • “I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that” – Martin Luther King, Jr

    • Peter
      I agree with the sentiments, but that is actually a phrase taken from King’s “A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr” with an introduction not included in the original.
      These are the actual words he used –
      “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction … The chain reaction of evil-hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”
      He’s absolutely correct, of course, and a gung-ho militaristic reaction (rather than a measured response) to asymmetric warfare is what sustains terrorism.
      The current US administration has managed this situation well, in not releasing the photos – unnecessary now that Al Qaida has acknowledged his death – but they stuffed up somewhat in relation to the release of information about the raid. It reminds me eerily of “children overboard”, in that the great efforts of the military get twisted by the political spin machine.
      Having said that, Obama had the guts to authorise the mission. Given the history of Carter’s debacle in Iran, that can’t have been easy. The Right’s assertion that he’s weak when it comes to military action now looks pretty lame.

    • “Forgiveness doesn’t mean forget what happened. … If something is serious and it is necessary to take counter-measures, you have to take counter-measures.”

      The Dalai Lama in answer to a question about the killing of the Al Qaeda leader.

    • Peter, it seems very christian like to follow the preaching of Mr. KING, but if all else fails people of all religious beliefs will eradicate the problem with extreme prejudice.

      An ordinary man doesn’t have to hate a man to put an end to him, he only needs a good and just reason. I think there were good and just reasons for the eradication of this problem.

      I see no reason to gloat over the death of an enemy but I see no reason to grieve in this particular instance nor to condemn those who took the necessary action. They should be congratulated on the expertise and professionalism shown in carrying out the action.
      I do think the following unnecessary disclosure of the details of the raid was foolhardy. You would think people at the top of the tree would have realised the media circus it would produce.
