Here are three Muslim majority countries in Europe:

Albania, Kosovo, and Turkey.

None of them have ANY form of Sharia Law.

vox populi de civitate vox de templo vox Domini reddentis retributionem inimicis suis

The voice of the people from the town, the voice from the temple, the voice of the Lord who renders recompense to His enemies.
Isaiah 66:6.
This is the first and original quote, your was done long time after.
In any case this don`t mean at all that "mob rule" or have to rule, this just mean that comon sense is really near to truth, more than an individual think. My friend, Europe have lived thousand and thousand years and have see a lot of dominations, have see empires rising and empires falling. Have see the born of civilization and the born of occident,have also see the exchanging of multiples cultures , have exported knowledge and learbed knowledge from others country.

So you`re saying that because the Muslim population is growing that Sharia law going to be the law of the land?

That`s a hasty generalization.

honestly "the voice of the people is the voice of god" is probably the worst proverb i`ve ever heard... it`s a real pretty way of saying "mob rule" but oh wait... you live in europe, i guess that`s why you`ll be living under sharia law soon. After all, "the voice of the people...", right? I mean, in some places in Afghanistan the "voice of the people" is to stone women who show their faces.

Though I will add that it was George Bush who brought us to Afghanistan and Iraq and that`s where his credit ends for killing Saddam and Bin Laden. Likewise, Obama agreed to continue the mission in Afghanistan and that`s where his credit ends.

You`re right, neither president devised any kind of specific plan to capture or kill anyone and neither president personally gathered any sort of intelligence. Unless the CIA comes out and says "well we were going to just fire a tomahawk but the president said no, I want to send a 12 man seal team in on the night with the lowest possible visibility in 4 blackhawks that will land in staggered formation with two cobra gunship escorts and a green beret team on standby for backup"... obama really deserves no credit at all aside from saying "ok"

In any case you don`t know me and i don`t accept your kinda psycological judgement, i was talking about facts, you are pretending to judge me. But i`m used, republicans usualy do this thing , they pass from a discussion abouts facts to a personal judgement.

@EricWRN What movie have you see? First air raid in Libya was done by French your navy arrive in the area just in a second time. I`m sure of that and you know why? I live in the middle of mediterranean sea, i`m kinda interested about this situation cause, you know, is in my backyard. I don`t hate USA, i just don`t like your republicans. USA is obviously a great country full off good people but to often is ruled by d.umb.a.sses. That happen all over the world but the problem with your country is that pretend to rule the world. And when republicans are in power world is allways like.....hmmmm screwed. Eric you say that dollars are more important than soldiers lives? Is this that you suggest me when you say "Well it`s good to know that dropping millions of dollars of bombs and missiles is less intrusive than kicking down doors."? And where are all the republicans that have screamed for decades that WE MUST EXPORT DEMOCRACY?

Well it`s good to know that dropping millions of dollars of bombs and missiles is less intrusive than kicking down doors. And um, I hate to point this out, but we had a bigger coalition going into Iraq than the fairly weak coalition going into Libya (Germany started pulling back about 2 weeks into the campaign even). It`s not a UN coalition in Libya either, the UN has chastised the operations several times.

Furthermore, The US was in the lead of the initial air campaign in Libya, only handed over after the US implanted the spearhead. A US Admiral was IN CHARGE of the campaign initially.

So apparently you don`t even really follow any current events, since half your statements are incorrect, you just don`t like the US or you don`t like George Bush and you use inductive reasoning to justify an opinion that you yourself aren`t even sure why you have other than "it`s cool and popular to hate Bush"

@EricWRN Obama didn`t INVADE Libya, not a single ground troop is deployed in that soil, and the air raids are under the U.N/ N.A.T.O control. Bush invaded Iraq against U.N decision and against all internationals wills. Bush have told to the world lot of lies and i can`t immagine how many lies have told to his population. Obama have created a new social wellfare for your country( finaly USA!! the world is in 2011 did you notice that?).If you think that changing something so important like healt sistem is nothing sorry but the blind is you.

CJ: Did you, at any point, give Bush credit for toppling Saddam?
Because if you did, I don`t see how you could possibly say Obama doesn`t deserve credit for this.

No way in hell was Bush involved in the logistics and planning of the Iraq war. He`s not a military strategist, he`s a politician. He just said "do it" and the military did it.

Similarly, no way was Obama involved in the logistics and planning of this attack. He just gave the green light.

So either both deserve credit, or neither do. And I`m about 99% confident that if we went back, we`d find you praising Bush for ending Saddam`s reign of terror and genocide.

Hilarious how all the kool-aid drinking Obama fan boys are giving him so much credit for continuing Bush`s mission in Afghanistan and saying "OK" to the CIA when they found him.

And the "bin laden didn`t fly the planes!!!11!!" analogy is idiotic because bin laden PLANNED the attack. Obama hasn`t planned poo. Sorry fanboyz :(

I give Obama credit for CONTINUING the mission and not doing something stupid like making the CIA wait or hold back.

Then a democratic president come and with 15 mens ,in silence, have reached the goal that republicans haven`t reached in 10 years without involving hundreds nations and without killing thousen and thousen civilians. This is my last consideration, republicans are just d.umb apes that like to scream and fight without reason.I really thing that Bin Laden was the best excuse for Republican party to do what they want, also corroding our freedom.

I`ll take that as a "Yes, that caricature of my opinions is actually quite accurate" considering, as always, you`ve not addressed any of it.

So. According to you:
It`s not Obama, it`s Bush.
The economy, was not Bush, it was Clinton, then Obama.

The economy was doing well under Clinton because of the Republican House, but not so well that you can`t blame Clinton for the Bush era.

Every expert in every field tells you you`re full of horsepoo, but you`ll cower, scramble to some Republican talking point blog, get on your knees, and lap up whatever they`re feeding you that lets you feel ok.

Seriously, every single time, you`ve yet to show you have any cognitive capacity that couldn`t be replaced with an RSS feed to Karl Rove`s site.

Baal: Obama did NOT do any of the planning of this operation. The CIA and the Navy did, Obama got a phone call and said, "OK" that was all that was needed from him.

The fact that this operation was kept secret from most people both domestic and foreign was likely it`s main key to success. We`ve missed him, other times, by mere minutes possibly because of leaks.

This positive outcome still does not absolve Obama from wrecking our economy, defunding needed military projects, and allowing his campaign funding bank buddies to walk away scot-free, with millions in bonuses, from the housing scandal.

When it comes right down to it 40 men from Navy seal team 6 did their job, accomplished the mission without taking a casualty, and finally rained justice down on OBL, They deserve all the credit.

I love Crakr.

All of a sudden, the President has nothing to do with this. Shifting US priorities to Osama and Afghanistan over Iraq, shifting the focus of the CIA and so on had nothing to do with it.

So far your arguments are:
It doesn`t matter.
If it does matter, it was Bush.
The President (this one, not the last one) has nothing to do with it.
Though he did it wrong. (This one, not the last one).

Lets drop into the one serious point you`ve raised though: Gitmo.

Thus far, all Guantanamo info that has been useful was gathered prior to torture. Though there has always been *plenty* of info that came out of Gitmo.

The problem was never that "they`re in Cuba!". It was the torture. Torture which has never yielded results, and gave out massive amounts of false intel.

I will never be glad at the dead of another human being, unless their actions interfered with me personally, regardless of atrocities they may have orchestrated.

Was it justice? We don`t know if the man resisted capture or if we went down in a fire fight, but either way he is dead at our hands. I hate to call it justice for then I would have to accept the death penalty for any zealot who indirectly causes massive damage to a society... and this includes evangelists who preach to people not to use medication, or the pope who actively prevents contraception in developing countries. This wasn`t justice.

It`s purely a symbolic victory for the western word. People are affected by such things regardless of their limited practical meaning. So, in that sense well done. You did it.

I would like to thank those in the task force that made this symbolic victory possible. Osama orchestrated atrocities worldwide, not just in the states.

Do I think we should`ve brought him back to the US anyway? No, because killing their leader will give them ammunition, killing their leader and desecrating him without real cause would drive them into a frenzied rage.

And you`re ignorant of the realities here AJ. This was a military operation with HIGH exposure inside the JSTF. This wasn`t some hackney PFC`s shooting up some random civvies and taking pictures to post on facebook. It wouldn`t matter if that wasn`t Osama they killed at the time, they all felt it was, and because of that, VERY strict procedure is enforced. The ridiculousness of proposing military officers would ever allow a dead man to be paraded around for exposure is beyond sanity. The O`s in charge of detainee handling abroad and high priority targets are VERY procedural men who got the job because they aren`t interested in vendetta`s but rather results.

Takes time to organise something like that however, and plans could leak. I really don`t know why they did throw his body out so fast but then, it`s likw if they did it quickly there is no chance of repurcussion. Even at a funeral pyre there could be one maniac looking to make a lasting impression and that`s all it takes. At least now there is no chance of any kind of rebuttal at a funeral service and it`s done. It would have been nice I admit, and I would like to hear Obamas reasons, but I think the decision was made for safety over everything else.

How would having the body make any difference at all? If they flew him back to the US and put his body on display, it wouldn`t satisfy people. You can`t bury him on US soil as people would be so pissed at that idea, plus you run the risk of some maniacs trying to steal his body away in the night. You can`t keep the body indefinitely.

If you bury him at sea then there are no repercussions (like having to have a guarded grave for example). If the DNA evidence has been obtained then you don`t need anything else. Any pictures that are released will get slammed anyway, no matter how many are taken. Burying at sea is a sensible option, but as always there will be haters disliking the fact Obama got the kill. Just be happy he`s dead, really.

He voted against the surge because it was clear at the time the Iraq war was based on a lie. It`s not Baal that needs to get a grip. It`s all republicans who hate the fact their guy wasn`t smart enough to complete a mission they started.

Baal: I never said that the compound was in Islamabad, If you had read it carefully I said just outside of Islamabad, 60 miles outside it, it turns out. Details, at the time, were not very specific on any news source, so get a grip and quit nitpicking.

Secondly, the only thing Obama did was answer a phone call from the military and he said, "Yes".

If you recall Obmam himself voted against sending troops to war, and has been anti-military during and before he was ever elected to any political position.

The 40 US Navy Seals that kicked ass in this mission are the ones that deserve the credit, Hoorah!

Btw, Baal`s picture was incorrect. The compound was right across the street from a police station in a town that has a large Pakistani military base and has quite a few retired military officers living in it. The ISI and Pakistan`s leadership will have quite a lot of explaining to do, because it is simply not believable that they didn`t know he

The buried at sea part is interesting, as Obama made no mention of it in the live broadcast I watched last night. He also said the operation was ordered a while ago, but the wait had been for DNA confirmation of his identity before saying "we got him!".

I like how people still hate on Obama as well, even now when he`s finished what Bush started, it`s got to be part of an elaborate conspiracy. Really, I get the impression that even if the govt had said "look! You can touch Obamas dead body!" and put him on display in front of the White House, that some of you would still claim it was a fake to satisfy public curiosity. If pictures come out, there will be "photoshop errors" that "prove" Osama is still alive somewhere. If he released DNA records showing the proof of ID then they would be slammed as "could be anyones". Seriously just grow up and be happy for the fact one of the biggest bastards alive is finally dead!

Might want to change the caption. The FBI stated that they had "no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11". Additionally, former Vice President Cheney had stated once that, "We`ve never made the case, or argued the case, that somehow Osama Bin Laden was directly involved in 9/11".

Personally, I would have like to see him brought to justice rather than covertly "killed" and "buried at sea". Seems all too convenient to me.

Symbolic victories do not bring home troops. Symbolic victories to not end wars. And symbolic victories certainly no not make us less of a target. In fact, It could put us in even greater danger, for a symbolic victory to us is nothing more than a symbolic defeat to the enemy. This is where their pride starts to make them do stupid stuff.

goaliejerry, loved this:

He was a mass murderer who evaded capture and taunted America and our allies for 20 years. When the bullets are in his brain, it is a day to have a drink to that. "

However, I don`t honestly think Obama will be remembered as "the president that handled it". I don`t think the president will come into play at all. Even that dumbass Sarah Palin could have said "OK" to a strike plan presented by the CIA.

The military had no part in deciding to go in Libya, they were instructed to do so and follow orders. Furthermore I give Obama credit for giving them the OK to make the hit, just like I did when he OK`ed the seals to take out the pirates.

Incidentally, when people talk about increased attacks against the USA as a result of this: You are correct, but I don`t think many understand what form they`ll take.

There will be, an increase in Terrorism in the next week. Small disorganized. They will mostly fail, and the death count will be small even for the successes (if any). Lone supporters acting out.

In the next month: Several projects that have been in long term planning will be brought forward. The chance they will fail will go up due to the rush.

Attacks up, success % down.

There will be a decrease for 3 months.

Terrorism in the next 3 to 6 months will go up. Those will be bigger targets, planned due to his death.

Then it will start its slow decline.

Also, here`s the compound they found him at:

Not, as Crakr implied, in the middle of Islamabad. It`s 60Km north of it, in the middle of nowhere. There are 6 houses nearby it.

There is no reason for the ISI to have hidden him there, and there is every reason to believe the intelligence was gathered by the ISI to capture him.

So add that to the list of people you need to thank, but can`t ungrit your teeth enough to do.

So to be clear: The ISI gave a Democratic President intel to take out Osama with the Special Forces.

Now, congratulate them, or if you`re going to route of "It`s the special forces that did it" please point out where you`ve blamed the military for Libya rather than Obama.

There`s a world of difference between fighting enemy soldiers and targeting non-combatants and civilians. Doing the latter, for me, erases any respect you might have accrued for doing the former.

I see where you`re coming from, but I can`t respect someone who slaughtered civilians. Particularly when they use religion as justification

What`s the difference? I mean many European armies have slaughtered/massacred civilians in the past. Such as in India, South Africa, Vietnam, Australia aborigines, even in the Americas. Americans have done the same such as native Americans, Africans. Middle East etc...
heck European rulers have been known to slaughter their own countrymen historically, yet we celebrate our heros for such. Poor counter argument.

Hmmm more recent ones

How about England
Patton and Montgomery respected Erwin Rommel
MacArthur respected Yamammoto
Custer respected Sitting Bull
I can go on such as Cochise, Red Cloud, etc..

Also many civil war and Revolutionary war enthusiasts we celebrate them in our History books as great warriors.
The Hawaiians celebrate the death of Captain Cook. yes Hawaiians are Americans but yes like you maintain European colonial arrogance... err... Western civilization still exists today. Never mind the other cultures that make up America.

Think about it. He fought against a major power (Soviets for nine years). He declared war on the USA and Europe in effect two more superpowers. With his ragtag band of fighters for ten plus years. Knowing the odds of defeat and living poor instead of as a billionaire. Willing to sacrifice himself in his own cause. Even though we may not agree with it, but apparently many who did. I personally don`t like the SOB, but he was a damn good opposing warrior. You don`t have to like the guy just respect him. Your choice to which I`m sure you won`t respect such effort. IMO he deserves respect and it`s pissing on the honor of all the allies who fought and died to bring him down to not respect him as an enemy.

Hannibal tortured/massacred many Roman citizens and not just soldiers. He was feared and Romans celebrated their sense of just civility by killing through assassination of a formidable warrior. I could give you tons of historical examples including modern day ones.

But there`s a fine fine line between justice and revenge. We have to make sure we as a civilisation stay on the right side of that line. For me, that line is about the point of street partying.

I`ll be raising a dram and toasting the soldier who put a bullet in OBL tonight. What he did was right and justified. But I would be disappointed if people in London went out celebrating on the street as reaction to 7/7.

Let me start by saying I understand your position on why people should not celebrate one persons death.

I`ll continue by saying that the celebration occurring isn`t because a life has been ended, but because a figure head has been toppled which many would view as the death of the fear they felt.

I believe that celebrating the death of a mass murderer isn`t a problem personally. It`s the celebration of the future lives saved.

I`ll simply end by saying this resulting from my own personal experience in these type sof ordeals. Civil Society prefers not to know what uncivil things have to be done to maintain their standard of life. But while there are people that desire to kill innocents by marring the name of a respectable religion then these things are necessary.

"Those who live by the sword, shall die by the sword."

I am not inclined to revel or celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden. That`s not the sort of thing a civil society should engage in if it truly considers itself just.

Obama is going for 4 more years, and he is getting it. He is doing the "America is under constant threat from our enemies" and "we gave our blood for our brothers and sisters" just as well as George W Bush :-)

Well well. One more dead guy... hooray. More dead people. A victory for mankind.

I salute the fearless efforts of the US forces that went in and accomplished their mission.

This was truly and evil man that had no issues with killing not only US citizens, but also Muslims.

One article I read said they used a woman as a human shield, and she was killed during the attack on his compound. If this is true? What a coward.

All of the posts that talk about a backlash? What are we supposed to do? Sometimes we have to take a stand.

Thank you to our current President for having the courage to approve the order. We had Bin Ladin before only to have our leaders not give the approval.

My definition of bankrupt is when you are insoluble as a company. If you are 14 trillion in debt, and you do not net a profit from your revenue (in this case taxes), you are bankrupt. A country can still go on this way because it must, but that doesn`t mean we are a healthy company.

You are so right broglio, I was crazy to think $1.1 trillion in war costs in any way contributed to the financial situation we are currently in. Not that, or the trillion spent propping up failed businesses. We would have been fine if not for those darned meddling sub prime mortgages.

It doesn`t take a special news outlet to know that war is expensive my friend, Sun Tzu knew that over 2000 years ago. No one wins a protracted battle, and no one finishes a battle with unclear objectives. The best generals win fighting few battles. Much like Osama did. One battle that cost him 19 soldiers and a few million in costs in exchange for a battle that engulfed over a trillion in money and the priceless loss of over 7,000 Americans and counting...

Ask yourself how bad the economic problems would have been had the storm hit without the added burden of war?

While the moment is great, most everyone is forgetting one important fact. Whether or not we killed him, he already won.

His stated intent was to bankrupt and ruin the prestige of the United States. With two endless wars and the bumbling handling thereof, he accomplished his goal years ago. It is to be seen who gets the last laugh.

"one of them had to be right."

Yeah, and it was Obama. He did it. History will say he did it. Blah blah its symbolic, but symbolism is powerful.

And look, I`m sorry, but there is no proper way to handle this. I am fine with celebrations. He wasn`t a head of a sovereign nation. He wasn`t a noble and virtuous enemy. He was a mass murderer who evaded capture and taunted America and our allies for 20 years. When the bullets are in his brain, it is a day to have a drink to that.

You do not have to somberly note the assassination of the most renowned international terrorist in the history of the world. You say good riddence, you pour a stiff drink, you reflect and shed some tears at the memory of how it felt on 9/11, and you thank god you live in a country that doesn`t give up.

Cobra - yeah, what does revenge get us, but what the hell were we supposed to do? What should have been done? F*ck it, we win today.

There`s no way they would have taken him alive. We can`t get justice for any of the fools in Guantanamo because no one will let them be tried in court or by commission.

And again I say, full kudos to the American Forces who stayed the fight to bring this bastard down. BBC News tells me that "the al-Qaeda leader was killed in a ground operation based on US intelligence, the first lead for which emerged last August... It led to intelligence that the al-Qaeda leader was hiding in a compound deep within Pakistan. The president authorised an operation to "get Bin Laden" last week, he said, and on Sunday a small team of US forces undertook the operation. After a "firefight" Bin Laden was killed and his body taken by US forces, the president said."

Kudos. Much motherloving Kudos.

Sephiroth - well said.

Even Obama`s most die hard supporters will have difficulty not saying "atta boy." Obama didn`t puss out.

CONSIDER - we put armed men on the ground in a foreign country and assassinated one of our most hated enemies in a mansion. That was bold, that was courageous, and - I REMEMBER - it is what Obama said he would do when asked in the debates with McCain what he would do if he knew Osama was in Pakistan.

"If we have Osama bin Laden in our sights and the Pakistani government is unable or unwilling to take them out, then I think that we have to act and we will take them out," the Illinois Senator said during the second in a series of three debates between the Presidential hopefuls."

One minute, I`m talking Fancypup out for his nightly walk around the neighborhood, the next minute, I come home to a TV showing a bunch of loons jumping around the front of the White House looking like what it looks like when any Boston team wins a championship.

So I caught Obama`s speech, but I wasn`t satisfied. What I want will come this week when the hardcore details start trickling out. How did the operative go down? Who was the gunman? And hell yeah, I want to see a body. It was a headshot right? The DNA confirms it was Bid Laden? (But do we have legit Bin Laden DNA to confirm a match?) Then I want a Che Guevara-like photoshoot with the gunman and his troops surrounding the body on a table. Like this...
