    bin Laden: Mission Accomplished!!!

    Ten years ago today Osama bin Laden said he wanted to see the price of oil at $144 per bll. This week bin Laden accomplished his goal.

    As McCain offers the same Bush brag that since 9/11 there hasn't been a successful terrorist attack on American soil, Republicans fail to consider the most likely possibility is that the extremists choose not to attack when the Republicans are doing such a successful job of terrorizing those Americans they have not fooled.

    One month after 9/11, the New York Times wrote of possible “nightmare” scenarios that would deliver bin Laden’s goal. Neela Banerjee warned that among the “misguided decisions” that would put oil supplies at risk would be “that the United States attacks Iraq.” The Times included this quote in its story:

    “If bin Laden takes over and becomes king of Saudi Arabia, he’d turn off the tap,” said Roger Diwan, a managing director of the Petroleum Finance Company, a consulting firm in Washington. “He said at one point that he wants oil to be $144 a barrel” — about six times what it sells for now.

    The hubris of Bush, McCain and their followers seems to know no bounds. This War on Terrorism pits the worlds largest two debtor nations, the USA and England, against the World's largest creditor nations, China, Russia & OPEC. I defy anyone to show me an example from history when the worlds largest creditor nations were defeated by worlds largest debtor nations.

    Well, we are trying to ignore the fact that he's still out there. The government's not too proud of that fact.

    I think this also kind of sums up how much the war in iraq actually distracted us from the war on terror .. when someone asks who Bin Ladin is.. you know we got it wrong.

    what do you mean it distracted us? Cheney, Bush, and everyone on stage at the Republican Primary debates told me "they attacked us"?

    Do you think Bin Laden is going to get a big banner that says "Mission Accomplished" and put it up behind him on his next video?

    What's wrong with truth in advertising?

    bin Laden, unlike Bush, has accomplished his mission. Even Rumsfeld admitted we're bogged down in a long hard slog. The new Republican imperialist is advocating we remain in Iraq for 100 years if necessary.

    A couple things,

    Bin Laden's mission isn't accomplished. He did want the nation to get bogged down in a war....and he wanted the price of oil to go up, but....his ultimate goal is to bring down the United States.

    The new Republican imperialist is advocating we remain in Iraq for 100 years if necessary.
    Which Bin Laden would hate.

    Because. If we're able to be there 100 years.....it'd have to calm down quite a bit. So you got American bases, in a stable Iraq.....Bin Laden REALLY shot himself in the foot if that's the case.

    ^^^^ bin Laden has accomplished 2 of his 3 goals. We are bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan. Oil hit $144.00 per bll. While he hasn't brought us entirely down, our dollar has lost more than 40% of its value and most of the world views us as a rogue nation rather than a trusted and reliable friend.

    It was not very obvious he was making a comment about the spelling of his Name.. I genuinely thought he had no idea who he was.

    The was in iraq has distracted the country from the main purpose of going to war.. to stop terror.

    1. I'm not sure what your trying to say here
    2. there was no "terror threat" to the us in iraq before we got there
    3. the goal was to eliminate wmd's which there were none of in the first place.

    "Mission Accomplished"
