Osama bin Laded is dead. The most wanted person in the world is no more. He was a terrorist. He was a villain to America, though many people think that he was the political creation of America. Is Trrorism Ended by the death of Bin Laden?
There are 1.6 billion muslims and of those anywhere from 15 to 20% are extremists that believe in the rise of a new Islamic caliphate and are willing to bring it about by violent means following in the footsteps of Bin Laden. No terrorism hasn't been defeated.
What price will that be? Is it terrorism, or banal and persistent threatening? I know what the price will be for most of us, more security at the airports, less freedom and liberty for ordinary citizens. But this is less related to real terrorism and more to do with getting the type of government we deserve. Sadly, terrorism continues within, and beyond our borders.
HealthyMateus ''Sadly, terrorism continues within, and beyond our borders.'' Let's not forget where OBL came from and how he got started. During the Russian/ Afghanistan war, the US supported the rebels to take over the country. Result was a takeover of the country by the Taliban.
The US provided American Intelligence with an opportunity to acquire any new Russian military hardware that could be used in Afghanistan. Mujhadeen fighters were given access to American surface-to-air missiles - though not through direct sales by America. The era of Osama Bin Laden was started.
By the end of the 1980's, the Mujahdeen was at war with itself in Afghanistan with hard line Taliban fighters taking a stronger grip over the whole nation and imposing very strict Muslim law on the Afghanistan population. http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/ru … nistan.htm
Looking back on history one must wonder if the US supporting the rebels in Libya, a new born leader may one day be attacking America. Our government under the leadership of President Obama, supported by a few members of Congress, have spent millions to overthrow the Gaddafi lead government.
I agree with you. because we know somewhere in our hearts, because of the growing fear and hatred between nations, a nuclear device will be set off, and were going to see devastatiing great famine all across the world..These are dangerous times for this world..We are seeing devastating earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, fires..as our world is being ripped apart by ancient hatreds.
Okay, I know this probably isn't that big of a deal to some folks, but i thought i'd bring it up anyway. On the radio the other day, I was listening to two political analysts, and one of them still insists on...
If western media, politicians and other public say that Muslims are terrorists and Islam is a terror spreading religion why don't they look at their own history and present scenario. If killing innocent people is...
This fascinates me. The bungler in chief has changes his story a few times about Bin Laden's well deserved death. One might think they could just watch the videos from the assault team along with the helicopter-mounted...
