Woah, really? What a strange turn of events in everyday life.

The timing of his death is rather bizarre as well. And this stuff...it all reminds me of Hitler's death.

How did he die?

During a firefight, black ops and CIA took him down and got his body. All my buddies are rejoicing right now!

Um.. besides the fact that you seem high Rosso..

It was a Special Forces team. Navy Seals I think it was reported as. They entered a mansion where he was staying in, in an affluent suburb in Pakistan, and engaged in a firefight with him and killed him. He had at least 1 shot to the head and his body was able to be recovered as proof.

Makes it better that it wasn't a drone that took him out too.

Here's Obama's speech:

this made the most sense tactically, for serious. just go in with strike team, nuke the shit out of everyone, grab his corpse, fly away.

i uh. i didn't think it would ever happen though. so. i mean. how can any republican beat obama now? >_>

Oddly enough he dies the same day as my Great Aunt who lost a son on 9/11.

Yeah BeeAre, patriotism is going to spike and there will probably be a rally around President Obama, especially his leadership ratings.

And Senel.. I did actually have a thought about that while the news was breaking, about the people who are dying today that will miss this information.

Wasn't Al Qaeda's last threat of nuclear war about a week ago or so? Didn't it say that if he was killed they would unleash nuclear hell on the west?

I hadn't heard anything about it. Besides, they don't have that capability.

If it was actually credible, it would've stayed completely under wraps or been widely reported. Otherwise if it was barely reported at all then that means people knew it was just an empty boast they were throwing out in an attempt to still try to strike fear into the hearts of Westerners, and that there was no real need to report it then for a multitude of reasons.

Now the important thing to ask is, will this be the equivalent of toppling the King in chess (game over) or will this be like cutting the first head off the Hydra? For some odd reason I have a feeling that, victory though this may be, at this point it won't even slow Al-Qaeda's operations down...

Probably not, but if anything it's sent a message that if you fuck with America, you can run and hide for as long as you want, but sooner or later we're gonna put a bullet in your fucking head.

wow. Neat. I actually think the timing isn't odd. The reason is that there is no significance to this date. There is now, but it was simply just a day. The crazy tea party people (No that I am calling all of the tea baggers crazy, just some of the more extreme ones are) are super crazy now, spitting venom.

"Cutting a head of a hydra" seems like a pretty apt metaphor indeed. Still, at least it provides some sense of closure, even if the war of terror goes on.

Same thing happened with Bush after 9/11. Seems fair.

What about the fact that it was International Labor Day? It will be just one more thing for some folks to celebrate.
I didn't see the newsfeed I posted 'cause I went to bed, but I haven't seen a single damn video or image of his body since I woke up.

It is very much like the hydra having its head cut off. I actually really wonder how much direct input he had in operations, because he seemed more like a figurehead than anything. It won't really change anything. They might be in chaos for a few days, but someone else will take over. In fact, there was probably someone already lined up in case something happened to Osama. And now they're going to retaliate.

Zeph: I love that image. It popped up all over the place last night. I think it's great.

As for the significance of the date, May 1st is also the date Hitler's death was confirmed. However, unlike Hitler's death, which ended a war, Osama's death won't end anything but a metaphorical and psychological war to get the man behind 9/11.

As more details come out, it's starting to look more like an assassination attempt. Which I can't agree with. I wish they had captured him, because murdering someone isn't justice.

Quicker than going to court and declaring the death penalty. Cut out the middle man, as they say.
