    Crass, but it seems all the main papers have some level of grimness. Not something I would be happy for my kids to see.

    ITV have some footage of his capture filmed by the rebels themselves.

    Fuck, I probably shouldn't have clicked that. I'm surprised they're allowed to get away with that (if it is their front page) - think of the children etc.

    They definitely missed out on all the puns they could have gone with based on him having a golden gun in his possession.

    A writer for Reuters raised a good point concerning Lockerbie; with his regime crumbled and aids/staff scattered - there now stands very little chance of getting an accurate accounting for the events leading up to and the exact individuals who are responsible. Finding people in a position to have those answers will be increasingly unlikely as they are hunted down and executed without trial or disappear into anonymity with the regime change.

    So, whos next and how long before our turn? I can't wait to post something like "brb war" on RPS right before they cut the internet. If BBC\CNN reports someone assaulting NATO convoys with his bare hands while screaming "Blood for the blood God, Skulls for the Skull Throne" - know that it was me.

    I bought entire ACU kit to blend with approaching NATO hordes.

    Hope they don't change camo soon.

    And you can bet your butt that a fair few members of the UK and US governments of the day are breathing a huge sigh of relief as a result of that.

    I think I agree with this, as The Sun shows we as a nation seem to already know who did it and already have our revenge on it. We still don't really know a lot of other terroist attacks but since Bin Laden is dead do we really care any more?

    I think you've been listening to too much propaganda. No-one is touching russia, you've got Nukes.

    On topic: Obviously it would have been nice to take him into custody, but its understandable that some rebel footsoldiers let their rage get the better of them. Or not, since for all we know he could have sustained his fatal wounds during the airstrike on his convoy or just in the crossfire.

    I'll go one further and say Al Qaeda's ability to attack the United States was nullified on Sept 12th, 2001. It was clearly a one-off, albeit one that should never have happened. Actually finding and killing bin Laden did nothing to affect that, aside from petty revenge.

    When you get right down to it, foreign wars do nothing to alleviate the threat of terrorist attacks anyway. At worst, they give more radicals the ammunition - both physical and metaphorical - to kill Americans.

    At worst? I'd say at best.
