The lesson the world witnessed recently when Osama bin Laden was shot to death in his home in the heartland of Pakistan's military dictatorship is that if we care to, then we can kill anyone at all, any time we wish, for no reasons or many, and we can do so with impunity. There is nothing the world can do to stop us from killing anyone we want to kill. We can kill tribal cheiftains, we can kill presidents of Third World hell-holes, we can kill entire nations if it suits us, and no one can stop us. We don't kill our enemies very often because it doesn't suit us. Except when it does. And when it does, that's what we do. Even a piece of shit like Obama gets it. Now, so does the Third World. So do the Germans and the French. The U.N. gets it. It could be that, as unlikely as it seems, the Left gets it. The mask we've worn since the 50s has slipped, and the world can see the face of the most powerful nation in history, and it is still smiling. But it needn't smile. The Lilliputians might just tremble. Obama will go, and he might easily be replaced by a man.
The world is at our mercy.

David Gardner, " 'Flawless': U.S. Navy snipers killed three Somali pirates with just three shots... in the dark, from the deck of a rolling ship." 14th April 2009
In the dark, from the deck of a rolling ship, U.S. Navy snipers had to take aim into a covered lifeboat 75ft away that was also pitching in the choppy seas.
They needed to kill three Somali pirates - one of whom was inside the pilot house of the lifeboat - and they needed to do it simultaneously to save the life of hostage captain Richard Phillips.
Barack Obama had given his approval for the Navy to use lethal force to free captain Richard Phillips, who had spent five days as the prisoner of the heavily armed mercenaries.
The United States has stepped up its attacks by pilotless drones in Pakistan since a suicide bomber killed seven Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operatives at a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan on December 30. ... “One missile hit a compound and the other hit a vehicle outside it. Six militants were killed”, one of the Pakistani officials said. The death toll had initially been put at three. Last Thursday, a U.S. drone targeted Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border but it was known if he was among 12 militants killed.
"President Barack Obama has approved the use of armed Predator drone aircraft in Libya... Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday."
[W]e have executed from the air well over 1,500 suspected terrorists by Predators. President Obama has ordered four times as many drone attacks in the last two years as former President Bush did in eight. ... Last week, NATO warplanes deliberately targeted Muammar Gadhafi's family compound and residence in Tripoli, purportedly killing the dictator's youngest son, Saif.http://townhall.com/
The top hierarchy of al-Qaeda has taken such a hit from US missile strikes that Osama bin Laden and his deputy have had to replace people in the terrorist organisation with men they have never met, according to Western intelligence sources. A dozen of al-Qaeda’s “senior management” have been killed by Predator drone attacks....
How many civilians have been killed in the U.S. drone war in Pakistan? The number could be as high as 320 innocents, according to an analysis released today by the New America Foundation. That’s about a third of the 1,000 or so people slain in the robotic aircraft attacks since 2006. ... In April, the News of Pakistan claimed that Predator and Reaper attacks had only killed 14 militants; the rest were bystanders. Last month, the Long War Journal estimated that about 10 percent of the casualties were civilian.http://www.wired.com/
There is a ton of stuff more. I grabbed a few pieces to see just how cold-blooded a killer Obama is.
That sissy Bush had people captured and imprisoned and so on. Not so with Obama, whom I am starting to like. He just issues order to have them splattered like bugs on the windscreen, smeared like rotten jelly in the dust and the rocks of far away places while he and his colleagues monitor it all on video. I can see he, like me, is getting off on this. I like this cold-blooded killer of a president. Keep on murdering jihadis, Obama, and I just might not hate you as much as I usually do. You are one sick fuck of a killer, but you have a long way to go to impress me enough to get me to vote for you. Yes, killing bin Laden and shooting his wife and the others was pretty good. Some might call it murder, but you and I call it campaigning for reluctant votes. A few more big time murders and Obama will be right up there with my hero Dexter Morgan.
Much has been said about the Christian-influenced West’s civilizational superiority to the Islamic countries. But what is happening in the United States gives a different impression. When Americans celebrate the death of bin Laden with dancing and shouting over loudspeakers, it is horrifying to us [Germans/Europeans]. The bizarre cheers show us that American society is alien to us. …http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/
Thanks for the lesson in morality, Germany. We really need to learn these things from you all.
"The US vigilantes may have killed bin Laden, but they haven’t helped to make the world a more peaceful or secure place. In fact, peace is about the only thing that has never been tried."
See? We are all evil and mindless drones working myopically to maintain the evil and corrupt capitalist system; and we wage wars against helpless brown people to satisfy ourselves with the crumbs fallen from the banquet tables of the fat cats. We hate brown people. We are morons. Only the writer as per above knows and is both intelligent and moral. Dalai Lama hates brown people, and that is why he writes the piece below. He is secretly in the pay of the multi-national oil companies. Only the leftard writer above (and further below) is moral and intelligent. And of course, those who believe as she does know that the Dalai Lama is a capitalist pig. This is what Dali Lama Hitler says:
THE US may have been justified in killing Usama bin Laden, the Dalai Lama said late Tuesday, in a rare turn away from the spiritual guru's typical message of peace and compassion.
Speaking Tuesday night at the University of Southern California, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said the al Qaeda chief, responsible for the deaths of thousands, likely deserved his fate.
"In the case of Bin Laden, his action was of course destructive and the September 11 events killed thousands of people. So his action must be brought to justice," the Dalai Lama said, according to a summary of his remarks posted on his website.
"If something is serious and it is necessary to take counter-measures, you have to take counter-measures" he was quoted as saying - a surprising message from a man known across the planet as a harbinger of compassion.
And while bin Laden may have deserved forgiveness, that "did not mean that one should forget what has been done," the Dalai Lama said.
Here the Dalai Lama and everyone not as spiritually pure as Kellie Tranter, lawyer and writer, gets to know just how racist and evil they are. Chances are, you are part of the problem. You just might think killing Osama bin Laden was a good thing. But we all know from Bishop Berkeley and Schopenhauer that the world is illusion and that we should be aware of the Tranterverse of perfect peace. World is Will, and you all have bad thoughts, which is why the world is mean. Shame on you.
Has Osama bin Laden’s death justified the means?
3 May 2011
Osama bin Laden has been killed. The US got its man, just as George Bush vowed it would. So is the frenzy of war that grew from 9/11 over? Certainly not.
The only thing that is, are the lame jokes about Osama bin Laden hiding in the kitchen pantry.
The public celebrations in the West Bank after the awful events of September 11 that appalled us in the West seem somehow eerily mirrored in the celebrations we are now witnessing at the White House. Pick the difference! It’s reminiscent of celebrating fans after a football victory. And it suggests we are locked in an ongoing war of retribution: we must bomb or be bombed, we must kill or be killed.
Nothing can excuse or justify any act of terrorism, but when leaders of any nation - particularly our own - applaud the state-legitimised murder of any person and call it justice, I can’t help but feel it makes us all a little less human.
In the ten years it took the US to hunt down and kill bin Laden, what have we gained in terms of understanding both ourselves and “the enemy” and advancing the interests of humanity as a whole?
Isn’t this anti-American sentiment marinated in religion? Isn’t it the converse of what the White House spins, with implicit moralising more than explicit evangelism, in its justification for using its war machine to spread freedom and democracy? If so it’s dangerously naïve for political leaders in this country join the celebrations and suggest that things will end well.
Because you can’t kill an ideology by bombing people and assassinating their leaders.
As little as the gap between rich and poor in the world was the cause of the murderous attack on September 11, all the more are the attacks against Afghanistan deepening this gap and thereby multiplying reasons to hate the West and its civilisation….With every bomb that falls and every western soldier who kills on Afghan soil, the rich part of this world closes its eyes to the suffering of the peoples in the south…With its offensive the West is not only undermining the idea of a collective legal effort to counteract terror, but is also betraying its own principles.
In the final analysis this undeclared war is no longer being waged to combat terrorism but rather to preserve a reputation of military invincibility.
Finally, with every day that war is waged there and with every new security law passed here (in the western world), that very freedom which is supposedly being defended is threatened and those refugees, who are the products of this military action and its consequences are marginalised. On September 11, not only did thousands of people suffer an agonising death, but even western civilisation suffered a defeat.
Those murdered in the attack will not be restored to life through the war against the Taliban. With every day of war the risk of a still greater moral and political disaster increases. It is still possible to learn from the failures experienced up to now. There is still a chance to return to negotiations and to reach a political solution which attempts to re-establish a legal order and to provide for justice and social equality in Afghanistan and in the world.”
Exactly what “terrorism” are we taking a collective stand against? Who’s taking that collective stand, what does it look like, and can we trust the motives of the collective actors? Has Osama bin Laden’s death justified the means? The cluster bombs, the depleted uranium, the drones, the killing of innocent men, women and children, the illegal invasions of sovereign nations, the devastating environmental and human destruction.
The US vigilantes may have killed bin Laden, but they haven’t helped to make the world a more peaceful or secure place. In fact, peace is about the only thing that has never been tried.
Kellie Tranter is a lawyer and writer.
Well, according to me that was so stupid the woman should be included in the next sack of unwanted kittens going to the river. There is little we can do about such insipid people articulating moral idiocy. I could get Stalinesque in my dreams, if I had any. I would love to destroy such people till the waters run clear again because they is no more blood to shed. But it's late in the night and my mind is wandering. I don't ever, though, even in the morning on a clear blue day indulge in such maudlin and filthy sentimentality for the sake of showing off for my friends. But, for some, this is the high-point of living. Too show off and inflate the Moral to the point it is all air and gas, that is the best of them and their deepest soul. This kind of shameless sentimentality and moral over-reach is applauded today among the sick people of the Left. They like it. They will probably find a way to forget that Dalai Lama made his public mis-step, and when he giggles like a girl and stammers shyly they will applaud him like they do Tranter today.
A sickness in the Modern world. Sentimentality run wild and howling like a beast. It needs to be put down. It is as bad or worse than bin Laden himself. Sick fucks like Tranter are the real problem in our world today.

Ma Bell sewer cover, Boston, Ma. Better admired from above ground. Looking into Bell is a dodgy deal. Ask Ezra.
The good thing is we have us a dead Muslim terrorist to swoon over. It makes just about no difference, but one can say the same of a grain of sand not making much of a beach. True, but one continues until that day there's something real and one begins to know the effort is becoming good. Till that day: Some Osama related death porn.

"White House Insider: Obama Hesitated – Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden"
Ulsterman in Issues, May 3, 2011
Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled” by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that accurate?
A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.” There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.
This piece linked is very interesting as an insight into the eunuch in the White House. The leftard comments are revealing as well, along the lines of "Well, Obama can kill people too, you know. He's tough as a man sometimes." Obama was out playing golf as the initial stages of the Osama bin Laden hit were going down. President Putz.

Dagbladet reports that after Osama’s death Norwegian novelist Elin Brodin tweeted: “Achtung: I will not tolerate any crude and flippant chitchat here. R.I.P. Osama bin Laden. No matter what one may otherwise think of him. In an interview with the newspaper, Brodin expanded on her tweet: bin Laden was “brave,” an “idealist” who “put his life in danger for what he believed in. Achtung: I will not tolerate any crude and flippant chitchat here. We don’t listen to those who don’t think the ‘right’ way; Achtung: I will not tolerate any crude and flippant chitchat here; it must be very frustrating for them. We must learn to see things from other people’s perspectives even if we don’t agree. Achtung: I will not tolerate any crude and flippant chitchat here. It must be very frustrating for them. We don’t listen to those who don’t think the ‘right’ way. Achtung: I will not tolerate any crude and flippant chitchat here"
No, I did not make up that stuff.
News from Dr Terry Jones and Stand Up America Now!The events in Dearborn the last weeks have opened the eyes of the nation to the threat of Islamic control here in America.
On April 29th we came back and protested at the Dearborn City Hall, one of the "Free Speech Zones." We protested against out trial and the charges brought against us, against the Free Speech Zones, and the Peace Bond. We also spoke in support of the US Constitution, especially the importance of the First and Second Amendments.
There were approximately 125 supporters, many local supporters from Dearborn and other parts of Michigan, and some who drove from as far away as Chicago, New York and Florida. There were hundreds of counter protesters across the street. I spoke on the First Amendment, and the Constitution. My Assistant Wayne Sapp also spoke about radical Islam and the cowardliness of the Church. (Watch these speeches in the videos below.) As we spoke, the counter protesters shouted obscenities, threw shoes and bottles toward myself, Wayne Sapp and our supporters.
I carried my microphone and walked from the podium down to the barricades on our side of the street inviting everyone on both sides of the street to join me as I recited the Pledge of Allegiance. As I approached the barricades, approximately 300 counter protesters broke through their barricades crossing the street with moving traffic, attempting to attack me and our supporters.
Police immediately worked to push the counter protesters back, at the same time calling the Riot Police to the scene. Police were eventually able to get the counter protesters under control. I was escorted back to the podium where I finished my speech as planned.
We did some filming of the event. The raw video is posted on our Youtube channel, StandUpAmericaNow.

Pakistan is part of an old-boys club in the West. It's part of the Great Game that we cling to from the Nineteenth Century, America having replaced Britain as the major player against Russian imperialism in the area. Now it's just unthinking habit. India, to an increasing extent, is a Modernist culture, and it is a natural ally of the West. Pakistan is a garbage Muslim terror state. India is our friend.
SALMAN RUSHDIE: It's Time To Declare Pakistan A Terrorist State
This time the facts speak too loudly to be hushed up. Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted man, was found living at the end of a dirt road 800 yards from the Abbottabad military academy, Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point or Sandhurst, in a military cantonment where soldiers are on every street corner, just about 80 miles from the Pakistani capital Islamabad. This extremely large house had neither a telephone nor an Internet connection. And in spite of this we are supposed to believe that Pakistan didn’t know he was there, and that the Pakistani intelligence, and/or military, and/or civilian authorities did nothing to facilitate his presence in Abbottabad, while he ran al Qaeda, with couriers coming and going, for five years?
Too bad that politics is left to politicians. If Indians were to attack Pakistan, we should all cheer and throw money at India till they win the war and beyond.
Asma Alsharif and Cynthia Johnston, "Bin Laden sea burial not in line with Islam, clerics say," ReutersAfrica. 3 May 2011.
RIYADH/DUBAI, May 3 (Reuters) - Clerics in Saudi Arabia, a staunch U.S. ally and the country of Osama bin Laden's birth, dismissed Washington's assertions it observed Islamic rites in disposing of the al Qaeda leader's body in the Arabian Sea.
Bin Laden, shot dead by U.S. forces in a raid on a compound in Pakistan on Monday, was placed in a weighted bag and dropped into the north Arabian Sea from the deck of a U.S. aircraft carrier, the Carl Vinson, the U.S. military said.
But many Muslims in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the Gulf Arab region, including opponents to bin Laden's militant ideology, said the fact funeral rites were read for him did not diminish their shock at the way his body was disposed of.
"That is not the Islamic way. The Islamic way is to bury the person in land like all other people," said Saudi Sheikh Abdul Mohsen Al-Obaikan, an adviser to the Saudi Royal Court.
That might be the Islamic way for Muslims to bury each other. For everyone else, for those Muslims murder, nothing much matters. So, for now, dumping dead Muslims at sea is good enough. It will depress the crab market, though. I can live with it.

"In Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit with a large Muslim and Arab population, a small crowd gathered outside the City Hall in celebration, many of them being of Middle Eastern descent."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
"The Dearborn celebration of about two dozen people was captured on video and posted to YouTube overnight."

About 400 people gathered to protest Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones on Friday in Dearborn. At least two people were arrested.http://dearborn.patch.com/
In addition to the counter-protesters on the street, people yelled at Jones, honked their horns and gave him the finger as they drove by.
At least two people were arrested as counter-protesters to Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones stormed his demonstration in Dearborn Friday evening.
Jones spoke out both against Sharia Law as well as what he sees as the oppression of free speech in Dearborn.
Cars and semi-trucks driving by slowed down and honked their horns in support of the protest to Jones' speech, while some passengers leaned out of windows and sunroofs and yelled at Jones, giving him the middle finger.
"It's a special day for us to show Americans we are celebrating, we are united," said Ahmed Albedairy, 35, of Dearborn, who came to the U.S. from Iraq in 1996 and was one of about 20 people outside City Hall very early Monday. Dearborn is home to one of the nation's largest Arab and Muslim communities. Roughly one-third of the 100,000 residents trace their roots to the Middle East.
Said one Muslim: "I think by seeing him out of our life gives us comfort. At least no big harm will come to the Muslim community in the U.S. from him or people like him."

Bin Laden Dead - Celebration at Ground Zero
Kafir Kanuck was at the press conference and got a photo. All is well.
I'd be curious to get a sense of the mood of most in Dearborn, Michigan this evening.
American forces killed bin Laden in Pakistan.
Bin Laden was located at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, which was monitored and when the time was determined to be right, the president said, he authorized a "targeted operation."
"A small team of Americans carried out the operation," [...] said. "After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body."
DNA testing confirmed that it was bin Laden, sources told ABC News.
Sources said the attack was carried out by Joint Special Operations Command forces working with the CIA.
I'm pleased that the man is dead. I would have been far happier if he had died a timely death ten years ago or more. He had been a known jihadi for years before 9-11, and it was the usual p.c. anti-Americanism in the U.S. government that allowed him to flourish all that time, up to, including, and now nearly ten years after 9-11. Better late than never, but far later than it should have been. Not just bin Laden. There are perhaps millions of jihadis waiting to and deserving to die. It is a shameful thing that we do not kill them. Even better, as I noted at Jihad Watch, would be to wound them. I can only wish.
This is good news, but it comes about a decade late. In all that time jihadis have had bin Laden as an inspiration to follow, thinking, perhaps, that if he can do it and live, so can they, to continue to harm our world with near impunity; and if they are caught, they become heroes; if they die, they become martyrs. No real downside to jihad when things can drag on for a decade in the case of the world's most wanted man. Who's going to worry about some small player in Nowheresvillianistan? No punishment, no penalty, no pain. These people must be laughing. Obama bows and apologises. OK. I mean the jihadis must be sick from laughing.
I'll offer again one man's opinion, knowing full well what that's worth. Jihadis care about two things, one being their religion. We seem to have little luck attacking that effectively. Thus, given any chance at all, I suggest that those who can should aim at the other thing jihadis obsess over. Going to prison means nothing to them, and dying is just as good or better than praying most of the time. Hit them where it hurts. Take the fun out of jihad. Let them live a long time and let them roam free. Shoot them between the legs. That will make the next guy nervous. Who'd follow bin Laden if he'd had his balls blown off? Men, and women, would just turn away and not want to see him at all. Better than death.
Bin Laden is dead, but jihad is eternal. Jihad was not some scheme bin Laden dreamed up in a cave one night. It is the eternal soul of Islam, and has been since Mohammed, may be burn in Hell for eternity, moved to Medina. Bin Laden was just doing the same Muslim routines that have always been Islam in practice and theory: killing and enslaving and destroying in the name of Islam. Killing bin Laden was only satisfying. It won't make any dent, not a scratch, in Islam. Can't get that into the minds of those who believe that what they hear from their friends who don't know is as good or better than fact. The fight goes on. The fight was never about bin Laden. He was merely the current poster-boy for jihad. Islam is an eternal war against not-Islam. Bin Laden is gone. Islam remains. The war continues. It will continue for all of my life, all of your life, and probably forever till Islam is torn from the world, burnt root and branch by main force and terror for generations untold. But it will never just go away of its own accord. It will require men to take the fight to the ummah and to win for freedom. Most people don't like freedom. This will be a long fight, and one we might not win. We certainly didn't win much today, just a poster-boy's carcass. Not that I'm complaining.
Bin Laden was killed in a gun fight in Pakistan. Pakistan is our ally in the war against Islamic terrorism, i.e. jihad, in Pakistan and Afghanistan. American troops in Pakistan killed a Pakistan resident.
Terry Jones burnt a Qur'an in Florida.
Let me weigh these two events and see which has greater weight.
I am now weighing. I am now concluding. My conclusion is: Obama will take credit for killing bin Laden till it turns sour in dar al Islam. Then he will blame Bush. Terry Jones will be banned from discussing this in Dearborn, Michigan. And when the killing starts in retaliation for the killing of bin Laden, leftards around the world will blame Sarah Palin just because they don't know anything else.
Bin Laden will be a hero to Muslims for a generation or more. He was always a poster-boy. Now he's a dead one, and like Elvis and Rudolph Valentino, his legend will grow. But if not bin Laden, it will be some other Muslim killer. The killing will never stop: it's what Islam is about.
