Are you so blind that you can't see the entire world talking about his death? Why would they do that if he had no influence at all? Cannot believe you don't think he has any power. Even if he isn't giving direct orders, he represents the biggest symbol of terrorism.
My point exactly. He is a symbol. A figure-head. Sure had some power, but not that much really, seeing as removing him only means so other, equally mental terrorist starts giving orders. Bin Laden was a symbol of terrorism, now he will be replaced. There's no real victory.

I don't have any expertise and as far as I can tell neither do you. An expert (never caught his name) on the BBC said the CIA didn't train him. So whose word do I take? Let me answer that for you: his.
The CIA, definitely trained him. I guarantee it. I don't know what "expert" this is (suspicious you can't remember his name :rolleyes:), but you either took it out of context, or he is a dumbo. The USA has openly admitted to training Osama Bin Laden and the Mujihadeen in the 90's.

He should have been tried and punished by an international criminal court.

Discuss.

if they captured him, people would go after him, increasing terror risks
what other kind of punishment to you propose
we knew he was guilty
what jury is ever going to find him innocent?
the soldiers would have been at a lot more risk trying to get him out alive, what about security?
personally, i think it would have caused a greater uproar but according to my mother i am 'very harsh' in most of my opinions

As I understand it, he was shot and killed in a fire fight/ stand-off, and not executed. There's a difference

Yes and no.

Yes he shouldn't have been shot he should have been tortured like hell, not for interrogation purposes but, because he sure as hell deserves it.

I would've rather seen him tried, as I'm against any form of assasination/capital punishment.

However, in that situation I don't think the US military had much choice. Also, Bin Laden always said he was going to kill himself if it ever came to it; his bodyguard always carried an extra bullet to kill Bin Laden.

Proof that he wasn't?
I think the "proof that he was" in a more important question.

"My hair is blonde".
"Proof that it is?"
"Here you go! *insert picture* "
"Cool story bro".

Proof given.

"OBL's been shot."
"Proof that he was?"
"The newspapers tell me SO IT MUST BE TRUE! :eek: :eek2: :eek3: :eek4: "

No proof given.

See how this works?

Because he was going to get a fair trial, anywhere, ever?

You're wrong. I'm glad his head got blasted like a watermelon. Nothing less would suffice for 9/11. What's a better talking point is why they dumped his body at sea so quickly. Something isn't quite right there..............

Are you guys familliar with the Nuremberg Trials. These were again, bad men who we knew had done bad things. They all got a trial though. The location of his trial would not have had to been made public, all that needed to be known was that we don't operate under the same rules as terrorists.
