@OldOllie: Ollie, we actually have some views in common on this issue. (1) I disapprove of Obama's use of drone strikes. (2) I`d have preferred that OBL were taken alive (though probably for reasons different from yours).
Where I think you`re dead wrong, however, is in your charge that Obama is somehow lacking the courage necessary to fight terrorism. Obama`s decision to send in a SEAL team to get OBL was gutsy. Had that mission failed--if for example, the entire compound had been booby-trapped, the SEALs had all died, and OBL had escaped--Obama would have thrown away any chance at a second term. Any president who wanted to play it safe would`ve used a cruise missile or JDAM strike for that mission.
There are numerous things I dislike about Obama, Ollie. But I`m not so partisan that I can`t acknowledge that he had balls of brass when it came to taking out OBL.

@OldOllie: Ollie, declaring "I WIN!" after you've had all your teeth knocked out doesn`t make you a winner. It just means you`re out of touch with reality.
Chalket`s three word response of "Osama Bin Laden," after you were going off in conservative la-la land about Obama being a "sniveling coward" who "won`t take the risk to send in troops to capture terrorists," was a knockout blow. I`m pretty sure it was recognized as such by virtually everyone following this thread except you.

Come on OldOllie. Your whole tactic when responding to my original comment where I actually mentioned Bin Ladin was designed for people to bring up Bin Ladin. I could tell exactly what you were doing. That is why I did not bite. You are a troll extraordinaire but you are still just a troll.
