Agreed.

An abhorrent man

good news, at last...

now it might be a good idea to get Bin Laden before he dies of old age or kidney failure

That's our backup plan. Just like Castro.

I seem to recall an egyptian doctor, but can't be arsed to google

anyways, even for puerly symbolic value, getting Bin Laden is important, after 5 years of failure. Getting him alive would also be very interesting, he probably has plenty of good stories to tell about his time as a CIA operative

Yeah, either way he should write a book. I hope that's what he's doing now. I certainly would...

Yes, would have been nice to have seen him tried etc.

I just looked on the NYT an article on the life for Zarqaoui, looks like a completely average bloke, neither particularly clever nor charismatic... it sucks when the super villain of our age are not remarquable in any way, yet mobilize enourmous effort and ressources to be put down... A 1000 guys like him could easy spring to life, doesn't take anything remarkable really...

It's probably a lot easier to make sure these people are not 'born' (aka created by circumstances) than kill them

That would be too much like common sense though. Oh and then you can't befriend them wheb you want to though....

as long as there is politicians there will always be Zarqawis

depends on what you see as appropriate justice i suppose

personally i find the trials of the likes of slobodan milosevic and saddam hussein etc completely ridiculous and embarassing

they're the equivalent of western society spraying perfume in the toilet, to reassure ourselves that although there's plenty of shit about, we are civilised and above it

The prime minister urged Iraqis to join political dialogue rather than violence, vowing to "carry on on the same path... by killing all the terrorists". :hmm:
