I know where you're coming from. I think that Bin Laden and his Al Queda buddies all deserve justice. And I don't mean a trial. What I mean by justice is that his bullet-riddled corpse should be left for scavengers by any US or British Special Forces that happen to find him.

However, if you know anything about the history of the Special Forces, you know that it's been one cluster f*** after another. Vietnam, Cambodia, Iran, Somalia . . . I tend to agree with what Ed said a while back in another thread. Bin Laden will probably join the many who have succesfully evaded "the most powerful military in the world". Heck, we couldn't even get a few measily warlords in Somalia or take out Saddam Hussien when we had the chance.

I hope that they do find him and that Operation Enduring Freedom, or whatever it's called, is successful, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Bin Laden has already proved his resolve several times, and it would be a grave mistake to underestimate him again.
