Say all that you want; make all the right winning arguments. But if you ask me, it boils down to bad management. The USA's bad management. The Britt's bad management; and so on and so forth. So how do you make things better? Do you listen to excuses, logic and reasons? No. You do the same thing big corporations do when they care about the health of their companies and the security of the future earnings of thereof.
dear AC – i think media should stop doing it on purpose,-
like: Obama Bin Laden, etc... "kill Obama Bin Laden" – doesn't make any sense : ((((
...Osama Administration, Osama Care....
AC, please advise: Pakistani demonstrators protesting against Obama Administration, Osama Administration, or both?
... and b.t.w. – it's not an Obama Compound – it's a White House : (((((
We spend $2.5 Trillion and 10 years going after Bin Laden but we can't invest a fraction of that into killing the murderous Gadaffi? This is a dictator who is bombing his own people and doing fist pumps from a convertible in broad daylight. Where was our bomber or sniper on that day?
American vigilantes invated a soverign country and murdered a religious leader and his family, stole his body and fed it to the sharks and fanatics at home cheered in the streets.
Yes, he was evil but that does not justify abandoning the rule of law.
A belief in the Muslim world that the U.S is against them? Sadly, they are often quite right about that. Too many of my neighbors think Al Qaeda represents all of Islam. So wrong. In the celebrations of Bin Laden's death, you could see some of our darker shadow side. I'm glad we got him but some of the hating needs to stop.
