Al-Qaeda Confirm Bin Laden Dead


Game_Over

Recommended Posts

Well there wasn't even any mention of oil for a start, does anyone still not know what its all about?

Mmm... Iraq seemed to be about oil security.

There wasn't much oil to be gained from Afghanistan or Invading Pakistan to get Bin Laden.. struck me that was more pleasure than business.

Had to kill as many "terrorists" as possible to get them back for 911..

If you haven't already found it (its all over the web).

From the Daily Telegraph

That article is very interesting as it reveals another major contraddiction:

Lieutenant General Asad Durrani, former head of the ISI, Pakistan's intelligence service, said it was "inconceivable" that his government was unaware of the US raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.

He claimed his country was forced to deny any knowledge of the raid to avoid a domestic backlash. The ISI's official line has been that bin Laden's compound had "slipped off our radar" after it raided the building in 2003 while hunting for another senior al-Qaeda operative.The agency claims it was unaware that bin Laden was hiding there.

So far everyone said (including testimonials from locals) that the compound was built 5 years ago! How can they claim they raided it 8 years ago?

It is all such a mess of lies that no part of this mess is believable anymore. The real conspiracy teorists are them who spread all these lies in the media, not us here on HPC.

Not the only one.....

New Yorkers ignoring a complete nutjob on the subway , what a surprise.

In my opinion the video doesn't prove anything , sorry.

Lets wait until Obamas next approval rating results come out.

Who knows what lies in the Stans. Sure would be nice to circle them with army bases, sure handy to stop any pipelines running where they don't want them. So they invade Afghanistan, call the original government "very bad men", install a friendly government, "support" them with lots and lots of money, they'll be BFFs just like Saddam used to be. It's about control which equates as close as they can get to ownership. You control what can go in and out of the Stans then you can set your price for what they have and control the market. Even better you have a way that just by labelling this or that with the T word you get full home support to unleash a can of whoop-ass on anyone who doesn't know who's in control. Think what is at stake here if you doubt that people give forethought and plan things surrounding this issue.

There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Too much military equipment is being gone through to think that that few people are dying. I am reminded of a story about 10 soldiers in Afganistan; In 3 months they had shot off I think 25,000 bullets...now either they are absolutely terrible shots or they killed a lot of people. With that many bullets even if 1 in 100 actually hit and killed someone these 10 guys killed 250 people which would be a large fraction of the official death toll for any particular year. The usage of military equipment in that country is tremendous, all of these guns and bombs going off must have some effect.

Just think, if you went in Britain and shot off 25,000 bullets over a wide area it would be easy to kill a lot of people.

The total death toll for this war according to the graph is officially about 10,490. The total death toll in Vietnam, which didn't go on for so long was 4 million.

The assassination of Bin Laden was actually a very significant event especially since he was found living in Pakistan and Obama watched his execution.

But predictably most people were just interested in ridiculous anti-American conspiracy theories.

Err, no he didn't...or at least Obama's spokesperson claimed he didn't.

Do keep up.

Estimates from Vietnam suggest that 25,000 rounds will kill between 0.5 and 10 people depending on who you read, so your estimate is out by perhaps a factor of 10 or 100. Snipers use 1.3 per kill.

oh yes, some people are getting very rich from it, if you're heavily invested in arms manufacture.

Afghanistan has a proposed gas pipeline to run through it. Dont know if that would be of any interest to the US. It also has the opium fields which can yield revenue.

More worryingly, it neighbours Iran and Pakistan. Iran now has US occupation in the two countries neighbouring it eastern and western borders and there has been a lot of negative press about Iran in the media. Could Ahmadinejad or Ali Khamenei be the next Bin Laden bogeyman for the US to strike down. Hope im wrong.

it's definitely somehow linked with opium, the last year before the invasion the Taliban banned opium production and it stopped overnight, 75% of the worlds supply used to come from there so that would have had some impact somewhere, since the invasion the crop is back up and in fact they have had their biggest export numbers since then.

I had assumed they had been grooming the image of Anwar Awlaki to be the next boogyman but now the yanks say they tried to kill him 2 days ago http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-yemen-drones-20110507,0,7683927.story i have no idea if they really are trying to kill him of it's just a way of getting him into the media to boost his status.

Here's a 1997, pre-war on terror, article about gas pipelines from some sort of conspiraloon type website:

Eye-opening, considering what came after.

here's the juicy bit http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHI203B.html

and also this -

Bridas began expanding into the Central Asian energy sector in 1987, and secured its first large-scale contract (gas exploration rights in Turkmenistan), in 1992.[5] Between 1995 and 1997, CEO Carlos Bulgheroni was personally involved in negotiations between Bridas and the governments of Pakistan and Turkmenistan, as well as the ruling Taliban faction in Afghanistan, to built the Trans-Afghanistan Gas Pipeline.[6] These negotiations were in competition with those undertaken by Unocal,[7] and although an agreement with Unocal-led corporation CentGas was reached, the deal was forfeited in January 1998 in favor of one with Bridas.[8] Instability in Afghanistan delayed construction of the pipeline, however, and following the United States Invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001, the Bridas contract was rescinded in favor of the former one with Unocal.

They are willing to destroy one country's economy, and physically destroy another country killing thousands of innocent people, what else would they be willing to do to make this happen?
