Apparently the US finally hunted down Bin Laden.  I'm waiting for the pictures.  Thoughts?

I'm glad that justice was served.

I'm not glad with how it happened (the thousands, possibly millions of people who needlessly died and the money spent) and I'm not glad that this won't be a reason to bring our troops home.

Sure it's great they got him, but I'm still wondering how this can be called justice... How I read the news is that he was executed by the US army (together with a few others). Not taken into arrest, have him shipped to the US, given him a fair trail and let him rot in prison if found guilty. If this is true, his rights as a human were taken away and that would make the US not much better than himself. To me Bin Laden got the easy way out and I would not be happy with this type justice.

The likelihood of getting arrested in a fricking firefight is low.

They didn't tell in the news here that there was a fire fight. I had a similar idea as how it went with Sadam Hussain, but I guess you can't compare them in that way.

I won't call it justice, but I'm glad he won't hurt anyone anymore, nor will he propagate any more hate speech against non-muslim people.

My point was:
"Shot dead in fire fight by soldiers" vs. "Executed by soldiers"

IMHO second one would be a war crime, first one would be not.

FYI, I have a separate thread discussing the cost and alternatives such as assassination markets here: "US kills Osama bin Laden at cost of > $400 billion".

Kudos to The Script for beating me in pressing the POST button...I did wait until I actually heard it from the horse's mouth.  But I actually got the news immediately when my regularly-scheduled TV show "CSI Miami" was in its conclusion and David Caruso finally figured out who done it, and I wanted to post to bitcoin forum, but I didn't have my labtop out and ready.  Sad

to be fair the article does say "captured and killed" which can be taken to mean executed.
and that would not surprise me in the least

Ha ha, well sorry for stealing your thunder. I did wait until I had read about it in several articles before I posted. I hope the good guys won in your show....

This is an interesting point. In your opinion, then, what would justice look like for this situation? If Osama was fairly tried and found guilty, what would be the best way to serve justice? Monetary compensation for families? Execution by drowning in pig's blood? Life sentence in jail?  I'm curious to know what you think justice would look like.

I have no idea, but I find it disturbing that $SOMEONE (be it Bush, Obama, or whoever) can wake up one day and decide to murder another human being because they don't like what he did.

I'll leave that to the court room, I'm not a lawyer.

A news report I read this morning said he was firing at the soldiers, and despite that they gave him a chance to surrender. I also read he was buried at sea.
