@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.

@S4S, so where is Obama holding bin Laden? What kind of intelligence have we gotten from him?

The fact is, the Seals could have captured him and would have had that been their orders. Obama ordered him killed because he doesn't have the stomach to fight this war to win it.

@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.
