The U.N. (those wussies) wanted to condemn Isreal for assassination. It’s a good thing we vetoed that reolution, otherwise how could we assassinate Osama bin Laden without fear of world condemnation? After all, we have a God given right to defend ourselves - if murdering our enemy is deemed to be self-defense, then we should be able to do so without those pesky U.N. wimps giving us grief over it. Damn straight!
If we’d gotten Saddam with those bunker busters, would the U.N. have condemned that? If we do get bin Laden with a bomb or in a fire fight, will the world condemn that? Or are we given a pass simply because he’s the top bad guy du jour?
It’s embarrassing that our leadership so openly discusses their plans for assassination while our press just laps it up - encourages it.
With all of our technology, money and man power we should be able to render these people moot - without resorting to their own mad methods. It’d be a lot more effective, in the long run, if we would stop wielding a big stick and start trying to figure out how to improve the lives of those that the terrorists purport to represent. By resorting to the same methods, we’re providing fodder to the other side.
It won’t matter a handful o’ dreams if we get bin Laden. It won’t help Isreal now that they’ve (supposedly) decapitated Hamas. As with any good organization, there’s always someone ready to step up and take the reins. All Isreal’s accomplished is to harden the resolve of their sworn enemies. And to possibly create more enemies.
Snuffing bin Laden or publicly humiliating Huessein will have the same effect for us. It won’t intimidate the enemy - it won’t whip them into submission. These acts serve only to embolden them - make them more resolved to hurt us. They’ll have more people, more money and we’ll have less cooperation from our friends (or the enemies of our enemy).
The leadership in Washington and Isreal is out of touch and (I hate to put it this way) downright stupid. Once again, what we learned in kindergarten applies to the big picture: If you’re a bully, no one will sit with you at lunch or ask you play 4-square.
I never liked the bullies - never wanted to be one. And I don’t like now being one. I wanna each lunch with the other kids.
