    Finally something we agree upon Stewart! :thumb: You're not so bad after all.



    I lost my best friend because of that fuck head. Not only is it significant, but it will be a day celebrated forever. God bless America!

    I was drinkin' scotch, whisky and smoking cigars long before I heard the news... does that count? I'll keep up the tradition on May 1st!

    Amen brother! That really sums it up... I talked with a young soldier over in Ellensburg at the FFF Conclave. He was over there with Project Healing Waters and had been to Iraq for three tours. Thank you too all the young men and women fighting for us all over the world! I hope we can bring you home sooner than later, but know we're in it for the long haul.

    Eliminate him, period. No capture. I wish I could have been there when this command was made.

    This is a good day for America.

    Osama, may your soul rot in hell.

    Do we not cheer our team mates on for every base hit, for every run batted in? Regardless of how one views the coach, and I have never felt this one capable of pouring piss out of a boot with the directions written across the heel. This, my friends, was a home run, bases loaded, crowd goes wild! Our fighting forces deserve no less. No, the game is not yet won. There are, for sure, innings remaining to be played. We cannot yet sit back and rest on our laurels. We must stay for the finish.

    You've got to wonder how much new intelligence they picked up in the compound during the raid. This event could lead to a lot more down the road.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    For those that don't understand why the United States absolutely needed to eliminate bin Laden; It's a simple answer after all.............

    For whatever it is worth I think Obama understands that and had our forces do what needed to be done.

    Well spoken FFF, I would only hope that everyone on this site( myself included), could operate with such thoughtful introspection!

    Well said. Are soldiers were the ones that did the work. Not Barrack. But this sure didn't hurt Barracks approval rating when he needed it most. Did it? And thus, I still have some questions? Where are the authenticated photos? Why so hasty of a burial at sea? I hope that I am just being paranoid, but within hours of So Damn Insanes death we had pictures. Why would this be any different? Don't like to be a conspiracy theorist, but I won't be a puppet either.

    Some of you gents ought to try suppressing your politics at a time like this. This is a great moment and we should all be savoring it instead of using it as yet another opportunity to make asinine comments about Obama. If this had happened on Bush's watch, we would have heard him say no less about his involvement in reviewing the intelligence and authorizing the operation than Obama said last night, but you would have been lionizing Bush for his leadership in that case. If the outcome had been more like Operation Eagle Claw or if the guy living in the compound turned out to be a wealthy Koran salesman instead of OBL, there is no doubt you would have crucified Obama for his responsibility in such a fiasco. I turned off CNN last night after they started interviewing some Democratic congressman from New York who started by saying something like "this was the sort of Mission Accomplished moment that George Bush could have only fantasized about". That sort of political bullshit had no place in that moment. This is a time to feel proud about what we can accomplish when we really set our minds to it. Obviously much credit must go to the military and intelligence personnel who actually planned and carried this out, but it is partly the fruit of the labors of two different administrations from opposite ends of the political spectrum over the course of a decade. Wish you Obama-haters could take a break from your vitriol to celebrate the moment.
