"I was hoping to share some words on the disgusting beatification of the PJP-II today"

I know. I was suprised that to see that Ryan Leaf's penis-face was still at the top of the page.

Assman

So, are we canceling the 2012 election yet?

Jeff

All I see everywhere (with the exception of AofG) are arguments over which president deserves credit for this. I fucking hate people.

Vandelay

None?

Jeff

None?

If that was in response to "arguments over which president deserves credit for this" then I agree.

Both Bush and Obama gave the green-light to find and kill Osama. Good job on making a no-brainer call, fellas. Whoever this team of guys was who actually carried out the mission, they deserve the credit.

Jack Klompus

All I see everywhere (with the exception of AofG) are arguments over which president deserves credit for this. I fucking hate people.

How is it even an argument? If it was less than a year into Obama's term, maybe it's a different story. Obama got OBL, end of story. Give the man his credit.

Vandelay

What did Obama do? The CIA told him they had the intelligence they needed and he authorized a mission. How many failed missions had he authorized? We don't hear about them, do we?

Jeff

Jack, I'm an Obama supporter and even I can't bring myself to say he gets credit for it. I mean, I guess if you insist on giving a president credit, he's the one. But, like I said above, what did he do other than green-light the operation? Saying "yeah, kill that asshole" is the ultimate no-brainer.

Whatley

So, are we canceling the 2012 election yet?

Might as well. It's not like the GOP has any worthy candidates this time around either.

Jack Klompus

As with the president of anything, when something good happens he gets credit. Likewise, when something bad happens he passes the blame. Not a new concept. It's how responsibility level works. When Apple comes out with a new innovation, it's not the nerd developers who are basking in the spotlight wearing douchey mock turtlenecks.

Mr. Kruger

I think it has something to do with "leadership". You tell ppl what you want, how you want it done, and you make sure they do it. It's probably harder than it looks.

I like the idea of him rotting at the bottom of the sea. Nice touch.

Vandelay

Yeah, I don't subscribe to that at all.

Kruger, you probably know this but just in case...that was so nobody could make a shrine out of his burial site.

Mr. Kruger

Damn I feel like such a fool. Thank you so much for your highly acute insight. It's always inspiring to hear from an insider and an expert on such matters. So much detail and cohesive argumentation it makes my head spin. I'm just incredibly over-joyed I understand it all now.

Vandelay

Any time.

:-)

Assman

If anything, Obama gets credit for maintaining Bush's strategy and not reallocating special forces to something sillier. There were lots of ways to blow it and he didn't. That said, yes, ultimate credit goes to the folks on the ground.

Jack Klompus

I'm just surprised OBL was hiding out on a million $ compound. Talk about class warfare. Dude moves on up from a cave to a mansion and Obama clips him. Hopefully we taxed him first.

Jeff

Dude moves on up from a cave to a mansion and Obama clips him. Hopefully we taxed him first.

Ok, THAT was funny.

Vandelay

Yeah I'm surprised the House didn't threaten to reject every bill they saw until Obama agreed not to clip a guy living in a mansion.

Assman

All I'm seeing on my Facebook wall (mostly left leaning) are folks saying we shouldn't celebrate someone's death. And I'm like... grow up? There aren't many undebatable villains in the world, but if you can't get off the tree hugging high horse long enough to celebrate the death of the one Cobra Commander who actually qualifies, I feel for you.

There are bad guys in the world. Making them dead is a good thing. Eat a steak and embrace victory.

Jeff

Amen, Assman. <-- felt weird typing that.

I read this on facebook:

"Just wondering how buried at sea will sit with Muslims, or if bringing him to justice rather than an assassination would have been viewed better. And all the celebrator glee out there will make us look awful, too. Obviously there will be a reaction - waiting for the fallout..."

I'm not at all worried how Muslims will view his burial at sea (as if they all will look at it the same way anyway). And I hope Muslims are celebrating the death of this monster with everyone else. I have a feeling most of them are.

Mr. Kruger

If anything, Obama gets credit for maintaining Bush's strategy and not reallocating special forces to something sillier. There were lots of ways to blow it and he didn't. That said, yes, ultimate credit goes to the folks on the ground.

Like cornering Bid Laden in a tiny cave in the mountains and then calling it all off? " hey! fuck this guy lets go over to Iraq and hang that guy who tried to kill my dad."

Assman

I could give a shit how his killing is viewed. Like we're supposed to kill him respectfully? I don't understand this passive line of thinking. Or vegans.

And yeah, there will be a reaction. Normal Muslims will say, "good, he was an abomination." His team of terrorists will say, "So, do we go to work Monday, or is this thing over?" And some idiot will say, "Cool. I'm in charge of hating the USA now," and they'll get targeted next. It's not like killing him nicely was going to end anti-American sentiment worldwide. You'd have to change our whole foreign policy to do that.

Vandelay

All you have to do is think about the images from 9/11 for a second and I fail to see how any amount of bloodlust or grave-dancing isn't completely justified.

Faith

OMG, Assman...I so wish I knew you in real life! Goddammit, man. :D

Jack Klompus

"Might as well. It's not like the GOP has any worthy candidates this time around either."

Perhaps. But it's not as if Obama's poll numbers were lagging because OBL was still on the loose. Nor was it because he hadn't released his long form BC. It's mainly because of the economy.

George HW Bush was considered a lock for re-election in '92 following Desert Storm. His approval rating was about 90% at one point during 1991. But the economy was in the tank and that rating dropped below 50% by the time the election came around. Clinton was never the front runner, not even in his own party until after the primaries started. Throw in Ross Perot + a great campaign strategy by Clinton's team = there you go.

I'm not saying this will happen to Obama. If I were betting, I'd obviously put my chips on him. But unless the economy sees a sizable turnaround, he's by no means out of the woods. GOP doesn't need to have a clearly identified challenger at this point.

Jeff

I'm surprised Obama still wants the job at this point.

Jack Klompus

@Vandelay
"All you have to do is think about the images from 9/11 for a second and I fail to see how any amount of bloodlust or grave-dancing isn't completely justified."

I think Shitard disagrees with you.

Vandelay

Oh my God. You'd think after that Santonio mess, the Steelers would just ban these idiots from using Twitter.

jackie

They shoulda taken his dead body and hung it down around Ground Zero for a bit. Fuck him and fuck anybody who thinks whatever they did with his body would have any effect on how US hating blood lust zealots will act.

As for the SEAL who took him down, I can't imagine a much greater feeling related to your chosen profession that anyone could ever experience in life. Game 7 OT championship winner in any sport. Huge Supreme Court win in law. Coming up with a cure for AIDS, Cancer or Whatever -- I could maybe see an argument here, but I just don't see any of those things having the rush that guy musta felt when he put that bullet into that jackasse's head.

Vandelay

I don't know Chiles...did you see what LeBron did to Garnett last night?

jackie

I don't know Chiles...did you see what LeBron did to Garnett last night?

No, but Kevin already knows that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, so how bad could it have been?

Jack Klompus

"I don't know Chiles...did you see what LeBron did to Garnett last night?"

I assume you're talking about this?

Watch from the :20 mark. Amazing play by James? Really?

Vandelay

Thanks Klompus...I thought he actually defied gravity and was able to levitate higher after already on his way down. That was still awesome.

Cheap Nike Shox

Think nothing of it.

Supra Sneakers

I will play it by ear
