So now that Obama has “killed” old Osama bin Laden, the whole thing seems to be raising more questions than answers. Like, really? You shot an unarmed man in the head and chest? Why? This is motherfecking Osama guys … you say he’s evil? Where’s the show trial, the spectacle of bringing the Enemy to book, throwing the full force of justice at him, executing the Evildoer to show the world that Good always Triumphs?
You executed him, then you dumped his body in the ocean? What are you, the fecking Mafia? What happened to your moral authority, the Global Policeman, cruising the world for Bad Guys and delivering swift justice? Is an execution justice? How? Upon whose authority? Has ANY judge ANYWHERE convicted him on the facts?
So yeah, Osama was, as confessed in his messages, a fecking Bad Man. He killed thousands of people. Wanna know who else killed many more thousands of people? George W. Bush and Barack Obama. How would you feel if someone shot THEM in the head and tossed them in the ocean? Would you accept the other (weaker) side’s right to celebrate as well?
Another question, on a different note – is a suicide vest more a terrorist act than a drone missile or cluster bomb? As both target civilians, is one more war crime than the other, even if the war is undeclared?
Back to Osama, if you can parade Saddam, why not him? Surely he was a bigger catch, the symbol of the Enemy, and what better way to give closure to the victims of 9/11 than to put the mastermind to trial?
As for the execution, do you really think that’s gonna pacify The Terrorists? the idea of martyrdom seems to be taking root, given that he was admittedly unarmed, yet the order was to kill him anyway? Won’t that just galvanise what has appeared to be a complacent and fading network into vengeful action?
And finally, really? You compared his “DNA” with his sister’s? Now that the body’s gone, we only have your word for it, yeah? Even if you release the photos, will we recognise Osama, considering you put a bullet in his head?
Before Obama goes on a nationwide tour, high-fiving the shit out of America, I wanna see some proof, cos this seems Far. Too. Convenient.
Like an illusionist once said, the best magic trick is one where the audience doesn’t even know it’s been tricked.
Show me something. Anything.
Till you do, I call “bullshit”!
