    if so, what makes you think that?

    if not, what makes you think that?

    if proof existed and came out that the man who attacked us on 9/11 is dead, does that change how you feel about destroying AQ in the Afghan/Pakistan border region, where they are clearly still headquartered?

    bring your A game to this thread... and let's all try to be nice... :cool:

    Bin Laden is alive for political purposes only, how else can this nation with all of its intelligence capabilities, technology not be able to find him.

    how bout stifling the obnoxiousness for once and actually taking the poll?

    you choose to participate in the thread, but you're unwilling to put your position on the record?

    telling, on so many levels...

    AHH lets see Mr. Palin our government keeps the idea of Ben Laden being alive as political fodder. If he's dead than

    1.What are we doing in Afganistan?
    2.The bogy man is dead so he can't frighten the people into obediance.
    3. If Hes dead then the military's case for newer,costlier,and more expensive weapons systems will be weakened.
    4. His being alive keeps the military industrial complex going,rakeing in all sorts of money. If hes dead a lot of people mught lose thier jobs in this area.

    I'm sure ther are more but these will do for now.

    Uh-h-h (to quote Baracko), it wasn't directed to you. (Hello?)

    But to answer your question: who knows? He's obviously alive. Bush wouldn't lie about it. I know you scoff, but I don't. Sorry if that bothers you, but it is what....

    That's absolutely correct: Cheney has bin Laden in a deep freeze out in Wyoming, and he occassionally goes to have a "talk" with the bearded one, picking his brain ... so to speak. But, he IS starting to smell .... Osama, that is. Cheney smells great. Got the aftershave thing working... so cool, man. Even Al Gore almost likes him.

    Well, the cat's out of the bag now. So what do we do?? Oh, oh, oh, that's right... not a WORD of this to ANYONE!!! Four more months. Then you can do what you want!! I'm going to Disneyland!! --- Dick Cheney, Out.

    if you're going to make your position known, why can't you just be a man and vote in the poll so that it shows an accurate sample of the forum here?

    are you afraid of your position, or just worried that you have nothing to back it up if pressed on it?

    i have to ask you nicely? lol...

    you're easily the most self-important individual on this forum...

    nevermind then, we'll just add +1 the top option...

    now then, how is he "obviously alive?"... how? where has he been seen?

    "self-important"?? Not at all. I just don't like people calling other people on the list names, especially nasty names. If that bothers you then maybe you haven't digested the rules here and maybe this list is not for you.

    The audio tapes that reference recent events. My guess is the tribal area of Wazirstan.

    The voice in those video tapes could be absolutely anyone.

    The videos are laughable, and certainly not him. You don't survive on dialysis this long, running from cave hideout to cave hideout.

    I voted not alive but we should press on in the region. My feeling is he was too sick to have hung on this long, but I also think we need to deal with the remaining serious AQ presence still in the region.

    I don't even know, what was the most recent event that "he" referenced in a tape?

    You can match voice prints. I have heard about the need for dialysis, he has the $$$ to get the machine if he wants.

    Just a guess since we don't really know.

    I think Bin Laden is dead, good, but America should never ever stop fighting Al Queda no matter where they are because they will NEVER stop trying to kill us.

    The American Liberal dream is beautiful, "Sound The Trumpets Release The Doves" we pack up, we come home, la dee da da, there's peace and goodwill, now we can concentrate on saving the spotted owl's and forcing the Airlines to Hire the first Blind Mentally Retarded Eskimo Pilot.

    Tell all this sh!t to those f-cking Muslims who want to cut your kids head off and blow up your Day Care Center.

    It's a whole new world and a whole new different kind of war.

    If Barack Hussein Obama makes it to the White House, God Help This Country and all it's people.

    he is SO dead....

    people have reported going to his funeral in 2001. very telling interview:

    Benazir Bhutto: Bin Laden was Murdered

    YouTube - Benazir Bhutto: Bin Laden was Murdered


    Watch (2:18) as the interviewer doesn't even follow up, its common knowledge.


    EVERYONE knows this but americans.....wake up.

    bump for more votes...

    but, i don't think he was murdered.... i'm convinced he died of renal failure soon after being wounded at Tora Bora... .

    what i find utterly amazing, however, is that the media absolutely refuses to cover the topic.... they don't even speculate...

    interesting...

    so, 11-5 that we should press on in the region...
    but, 7-9 that he's even alive...

    and, of course, no vote by Fog, despite his attendance...

    Indeed-there's a bunch of media silence on this topic,in fact hearing Obama state that one of his goals was to find Bin Laden and kill him was the first I'd heard about alive/dead in a long time.

    I tend to believe he's dead but unfortunately that doesn't necessarily mean AQ is dead too. Should we leave the region? I honestly don't know because I honestly don't think this war on terrorism is winnable in the true sense of the word. OTOH I'm also very uncomfortable with a Vietnamish scenario. I didn't vote yet :confused3:
