Bin Laden 'surrounded'

52 posts in this topic

user posted imageA BRITISH Sunday newspaper is claiming Osama bin Laden has been found and is surrounded by US special forces in an area of land bordering north-west Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Sunday Express, known for its sometimes colourful scoops, claims the al-Qaeda leader has been "sighted" for the first time since 2001 and is being monitored by satellite. The paper claims he is in a mountainous area to the north of the Pakistani city of Quetta. The region is said to be peopled with bin Laden supporters and the terrorist leader is estimated to also have 50 of his fanatical bodyguards with him. The claim is attributed to "a well-placed intelligence source" in Washington, who is quoted as saying: "He (bin Laden) is boxed in." The paper says the hostile terrain makes an all-out conventional military assault impossible. The plan to capture him would depend on a "grab-him-and-go" style operation. "US helicopters already sited on the Afghanistan border will swoop in to extricate him," the newspaper says. It claims bin Laden and his men "sleep in caves or out in the open.

The area is swept by fierce snow storms howling down from the 10,000ft-high mountain peaks. Donkeys are the only transport." The special forces are "absolutely confident" there is no escape for bin Laden, and are awaiting the order to go in and get him. "The timing of that order will ultimately depend

i heard this story 2 days ago and they still havn't got him.

Pretty convient since the election is coming up. Bush gets his approval rating up a bit by saying this, since we havn't heard anything from Afghanistan in awhile, and once his rating is up enought he'll say we missed him by 5hrs. His rating will stay up since it looks like they are making progress in Afghanistan..........

.......Or they might just catch him in the next few days.

Under clinton

Lower unemployment

Lower taxes

Better education

Better social services

Smaller Gap between the Rich and Poor

Better health Care

Far Lower National Debt

Far stronger Economy (avoided recession which the current administration hasnt been quite as successful at)

He did exactly what I wanted him to do... he was impeached!

He had no backbone... I don't even want to think about what would have happened if he had been in office when 9/11 happened!

Saddam would still be running loose and would still be in control of Iraq!

he got two terms so most of america dont agree with you.

You still never answered my question what else did you want from a president. Personal hatred aside how can you say he was a bad president.

You cant judge him on events that hadnt happened yet either.

But honestly hon.. I don't agree with most of America! thumbsup.gif

Lower unemployment

DUE to Reganomics.

Lower taxes

THAT was implemented George Bush in 88-92 administation.

Better education

Like that helped. AGAIN RAISED TAXES.

Better social services

AGAIN a DEMOCRAT thing. RAISED TAXES so I pay for someone to stay home and not work.

Smaller Gap between the Rich and Poor

AGAIN RAISING TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS.

Better health Care

MORE TAXES I have to pay for these moochers that are on welfare.

Far Lower National Debt

AGAIN was started by RONALD REGAN and REGANOMICS

Far stronger Economy (avoided recession which the current administration hasnt been quite as successful at)

WAS started by RONALD REGAN in 1984-88 administration

Why do we hate clinton so much? THATS WHY.

From an outsider... you dont know what you are talking about.

CLINTON and GORE like to take credit for things THEY DIDNT START.

You dont annoy at all Nxt2hvn ive only disagreed with you on a couple of issues but that doesnt annoy me you are more than welcome to your opinion.

I suppose i could just say educanale has just been clever with his stats but he could say so am i.

All i will say is that reagon took america from being the single biggest economy to the single biggest debtor.

How does improved healther care apply to moochers? Whats so bad about improved healthcare or free heakthcare for that matter?

All of the achievmenst were taken from clinton's second term.

Somehow I dont think that reagon canb lay claim to them when he wasnt even in the previous administration lol.

Educanale, that was uncalled for, immature and does not belong in a serious discussion. Please refrain from personal attacks in the future. Thank you.

Macro-economics are a funny thing, in the scale you folks are talking about it is difficult to say whether it was Reagan or Clinton. There are too many factors to know for sure.

The surplus wasn't predicted by anyone, so when it came up, many tried to claim responsibility...I doubt anyone knows for sure who's responsible. I think it is hilarious that Republicans claim Republicans are the reason; and vice-versa.

As for binladen. He sucks. I know he will get what is coming to him sooner or later.

Did any of you ever see the movie with Gene Hackman and Will Smith where they are on the run from some government agency and being tracked by satellites and all kinds of high tech do-dads?

For me, the luck that we have had finding bin laden kind of takes the shine off of all of those conspiricy theories as in that movie. If we can't catch one single guy after years of searching, it makes me think that our intelligence isn't as swift as some would like you to believe...I guess we have to do it the old fashioned way...

What *IS* sad is that really dont know. You are in a different country than mine. I am not upset that "You think you know" when you dont. Most Americans will not paint a rosy picture of Clinton.

So wot your sayin is that if your in a different country you cant have an opinion on a foreign government?

Well lets think about that........hmm.... Now i cant put my finger on it but where has that just happened. rolleyes.gif

I would recommend that you make an apology for that comment. That was a ridiculous thing to say.

This is a forum of people from all over the world, and everyone is entitled to their opinion like it or not.

Comments like what you just said are not appreciated or tolerated.

Unbelievable.
