Will we ever catch him?<p>Some how, I think he has done a Sadam, and got a few doubles - so even if he is found dead, we will not be sure if it is him.<p>Wealdstone_Fan

It will be interesting to get members views on Osama Bin Laden's death earlier today, could a lot more have been done to find him earlier and will the World be a safer place or can we expect a backlash from Al Qaeda. Also interesting that he was found in Pakistan, virtually on his own doorstep, in the garrison town of Abbottabad, in a luxury compound next door to a Military Academy known as Pakistan's Sandhurst.

As the leader of Al Qaeda he was at least partly responsible for the deaths of innocent people, so in the non Muslim world he wont be mourned, but in an ideal world he would have been arrested, and not shot, and then tried in an independent court of law.

As the Americans have taken the law into their own hands by killing Bin Laden because he was deemed guilty of causing death and destruction, would it not be naive to suppose there wont be a backlash because of the Americans gung ho actions, and in my opinion Blair and Bush could also be seen as causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives, and its unlikely that the world will be a safer place until the pair of them stand trial for crimes against humanity.

I will be interested to hear over the next few days, when details are released, whether Bin Laden put up a fight when confronted or there was a chance he could have been captured, if he was taken by surprise and just killed in cold blood then I think questions might well be asked

If he had been taken alive, how many kidnaps would have taken place to demand his release?

Just what the Muslim Fundamentalists want - another martyr. He's much more use to the movement dead than he was alive.

The Americans have just made things infinitely worse. Hundreds of separate Al Qaeda cells re-energised by the illicit (certainly in their eyes) slaying of Bin Laden.

Just imagine how the Western world would have reacted if Al Qaeda had taken out those arch criminals (at least in their eyes) Bush and Blair in similar circumstances?

They should have filmed his death - hopefully a slow one- and played it on every big screen around the world..............
the PC Brigade should be next on the hit list Posted Image

I think that will become an 'iconic' picture in years to come similar to the exact moment on 9/11 when George Bush was informed of the planes
hitting the World Trade Centre

I would think Bush and Blair are top of Al Qaedas wish list, but the ring of steel that surrounds them makes them unlikely targets. I hope I'm wrong, but I cant help thinking the London Olympics will be a much softer target, and just as high profile.

DNA of Bin Laden has come back with a reading of 24% cocoa, 57% coconut, 18% sugar and 6% milk.
Experts say this is probably due to the bounty on his head.

Hookey - Did you ever see the film 'Munich', it was a master piece as I'm sure our resident Barry Norman, namely LATO, will verify
