Looking at Usama bin Laden’s assassination while ”critically thinking” one might realize that Usama was a very sick man that was expected to die of natural causes for quite some time. It is very likely he would have died soon – did President Obama simply do him a favor?
Rather than let Usama die of natural causes, Obama made him a martyr as he would have wanted to be. Wouldn’t it have been just as easy to knock him out and capture him alive in shame to face us all? The ungarbled word is that he did not have a gun himself and he did not use a woman as a human shield. How hard would it have been to render a sickly old unarmed man unconscious?
In no less than three books by former Islamic terrorists who later became Christian spilling all at their own continuous peril, each one tells how they were brought up to believe, were trained to believe, and wholeheartedly believed that dying by the hands of the enemy of Islam is the greatest honor. ’It is the only way to be assured Allah’s greatest reward immediately!’ Unfortunately that is consistent with the honorable Islamic burial at sea.
If Obama had to kill him, it would have been appropriate to drop the body on the front lawn of Pakistan’s President Zardari with a note saying, here’s what we found in your back yard, you decide what to do with it. Let the chips fall where they may. If the Pakistanis gave him an honorable Islamic burial it implicates a conspiracy. If not, Usama would not be considered acceptable to Allah. Either way it would not be the US making him a martyr or honoring an “infidel.”
The US just killed a Muslim. Why are not thousands of Muslims protesting in the streets in every Middle Eastern city as well as in Europe and New York City? It’s because Muslims intrinsically know we did Usama a big favor. When you look at the killing of Usama Bin Ladin from the Muslim point of view (radical, violent, or not), it is obvious that our President did a good thing for all of the Islamic world (peaceful and radical).
What about securing all the computers, zip drives and other records? That seems like a great victory that should uncover a lot of secrets, however it remains to be seen. Have any big busts gone down yet? Knowing how fast the high level terrorists and cells will more and alter plans with this news, after a week most of that intel won’t do us a lot of good. It’s now four days and counting,… keep watching,… tick, tick, tick.
One hates to be so skeptical, but prior to this, any strikes on Muslims or news that is degrading to Muslims or Muslim causes (even radical ones) have been anounced by our smiling VP Joe Biden, or the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or anyone but President Obama. However President Obama is quick and proud to take credit for the killing of Usama Bin Laden. Where is the Islamic outrage? Why should there be? We fulfilled Usama’s dreams and destiny. Then we insured he was acceptable to Allah. We made him a martyr and gave him an honorable Muslim burial at sea. He would have been allot worse off dying slowly in bed.
Christians will think giving Usama Bin Laden a formal Muslim send-off as being righteous even to our enemies. Islam will think of it as a sign of weakness, showing that we fear them to the point that we made sure we did not offend even their worst terrorist. President Obama knows he’s the big hero in our eyes while sending a clear message to his Muslim friends at the same time. No wonder so many still love him. He’s playing to both sides.
Personally, I would have left the body with the Pakistani Muslims and told them “Usama Bin Laden is an infidel for killing innocent people. What are you going to do about that?”
America has done Usama bin Laden a great favor. Why hasn’t anyone else noticed this?
