You make it sound as though you know the US forces made a conscious choice to kill him....



[I'm not denying your point, they have made him a martyr, of course, but those who see him as such would have thought that way regardless]

I solidly believe he's dead. America wouldn't make something like this up, imagine in a weeks time Bin Laden put up another video proving he was alive, America would never be able to live down the embarrassment and Obama would never get re-elected.
America always has an agenda. Whether it be political control, oil, climate change. Barrack Obama is fully aware how to capture the nations support and he is doing so.

As for a video from Osama Bin Laden to claim to the contrary. That is the most nonsensical obnoxious argument I have seen, why would a Jihadist who's been on the run for 10 years come out and suddenly say 'here I am, alive, fit and healthy' when he's being granted a second chance to live under a different name?

I'm guessing they had to kill him, by capturing him the US would be open to kidnappers demanding his release and it would be a bigger security risk. Imagine the collective risks of transporting Bin Laden to the US.

I think by killing him they eliminated quite a few risks. Obviously the biggest risk at the moment is they might retaliate, but I doubt it would be effective.

Edit: I woke up this morning wanting to revise my brains out, and then I turn on the TV whilst eating my cornflakes and they announce he is dead. Well, I've been glued to the TV ever since.

If we'd took him alive and put him on trial, how many innocents in the interim would have been taken hostage and beheaded in a last ditch attempt by Al Qaeda to have him freed?
So what if he's a martyr? let the wackos who follow him believe what they want.

Ok you bunch of crazy sceptical cretins here's an exert from a wiki article of his death.

"The body was recovered by the U.S. military and was in its possession.[6][8] ABC News has reported that the body has been identified by DNA testing.[6] However, Reuters reports that DNA test results will be available in the next few days and that bin Laden's body was identified using facial recognition techniques.[9]"
It's even cited!

It also says: " The SEALs stormed the compound at approximately 1am local time[16] and engaged bin Laden and his men in a firefight.[17] The raid lasted about 40 minutes. Three other male adults present at the compound were also reportedly killed in the operation, including an adult son of bin Laden.[18] Bin Laden was shot in the head.[19] The helicopter they used to breach the mansion walls suffered a mechanical breakdown and could not fly the soldiers out. The SEALs burned the helicopter to secure intelligence[11] and carried out bin Laden's body on foot.[20]" So those pics are fake.

I suggest people actually bother to read sources instead of creating silly conspiracies in their head.

Here's the link to the full article that has a huge amount of indepth detail: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Osama_bin_Laden

Now stop talking **** and just be pleased they caught and killed him the most wanted man in the world.

To be honest, everything is questionable. The existence os Al-qaeda itself might just be one big propaganda. Nobody knows for sure.

Osama might just be one innocent civilian afterall.
Oooh, you mean like The Matrix?

People think his death will turn the tide against Al-Qaeda. As if, I'm certain Bin Laden had made detailed preparations and plans for this eventuality. The war goes on...

He didn't even exist. He's neither dead or alive.
i agree with you, he was a western-orientated creation of propaganda, used as an excuse to blame Afghanistan for the 911 attack (so the US could invade them for OIL in 2001). The 911 attack which as a conspiracy has had many different theoretical interpretations of its cause from (US press belief), Bin Laden, being the culprit to (Channel 4 and many other critics) the US officials themselves being the cause. The truth of this is unknown, and it remains to be a conspiracy.

the irony of the matter is that, a few years channel 4 and the bbc published a couple of short documentaries (which were later deleted from the web) that the supposed Bin Laden had died in 2006?, then a few years after the media was still claiming he was still alive?, well i say the media is bull ****ting, and saturated with lies, and that THIS MAN NEVER EXISTED.

I think regardless of how he died he would have been a martyr.
Even if he died naturally, killed by a disillusioned follower or by the American army people would remember him.

Yeah, I see everyone has forgotten about Gaddafi and his sons apparent death.

lol, but tbh I think there would be more fuss about it if it was his eldest son. He is the one that will succeed him after all (I think)

Absolutely nothing.By one going down you get another hundred.
EDIT: It seems like Obama is trying to pretend that something major has happened i.e something good has been accomplished by the apparent death of Osama :rolleyes:

I believe it will boost his poll ratings massively, seeing how stupid some Americans can be.
