Raising a pint not only to that F&@k Wad going to Hell...but more especially to my good friend Vince, that I loved dearly, who gave his life in this pursuit.

To Vince. Thanks. I hope it was worth it.

Thank God, and congrats to those involved in getting that deed done.   Now how about taking out more of the impersonators and or wannabee Bin Ladens?   Strike while the iron is still hot.   ;)

I was at a homebrew club meeting, second hour after the business part was over and we were drinking each other's brews, when the news came in.  Nothing like news like that, when you are in a room with many growlers and bottles of homebrew.

I think my head may hurt in the morning.

 Everyone cook a chunk of dead meat on a very hot grill . Only seems fitting.

I dedicate this bottle of "Trois Pistoles" from Unibroue to the Team that took the kill shot on Osama and
anyone that was within earshot of him. I also dedicate it to the men and women that died in the aftermath
of the 9-11 attacks and the following wars in search of him. I also dedicate this beer to the entire
United States of America!!!

"Revenge is a BEER best served cool...."

Cheers!

Killing bin Laden was the ultimate reprisal.  Terrorists are cowards.  They are scared now.  Their hero died at the hands of a US Navy SEAL Team.  Terminal lead poisoning of the brain.

What will terrorist do today that they wouldn't have done yesterday, if they thought they could get away with it?

Don't you know Gaddafi's okole is puckered up tight today!   You're next on the hit list Mo!

Yup, but I firmly believe that the "keystone" that held AQ together is gone. It is a trembling mess. It will fall as
it has been for a while. I am not saying they will go down without a fight but I believe that many will see that
it is much more like an uphill battle to keep up the fight, than to just quit...

There aren't too many of the "Deck" left. Ya know? I think we have weakened Al Qaeda to the brink.
I pray that they realize that even with martyrdom they stand to lose much more that they stand to gain...

My belief, my opinion, my view of a half full glass...

My alarm clock radio woke me up to this fabulous news. This is great news for the US and the world. I am very pleased that we remained vigilant and got that satanic bastard. It's about time we got hime. Congrats to our men and woman in uniform and all whom have aided in his demise. The world will be a much better place without this demon.

I will raise a pint tonight to this great news.  8)

The Nation of Islam?  Louis Farrakhan?  Almost anything he says is interesting, if not hilarious.

Hats off to the operators that got it done, and the intelligence groups that lived up to their names getting this fellow rooted out.

This is a big step, but this is far from over. I'm worried about the reprisals.

If we really want to show them what freedom and democracy are all about, we'll have to stick it out for another 10 years or so - rebuild schools & hospitals and have an entire generation of boys and girls pass through those schools.  Hopefully, when those kids take for granted that freedom and education into adulthood, we may be able to walk away.

If we leave a power vacuum, some other dog will try to set up shop...

I'm sure he felt fear and terror, but probably not as much as the woman he hid behind.

Yeah I'm glad he's dead and all. It's just funny that the timing coincides with Obama having a deadline in a day or two to announce his re-election campaign. On topic though.....I have a 22 ounce bottle of Maverick Beer from Half Moon Bay Brewing Company with the label Obama '08. Brewed by Half Moon Bay Brewing Company by Alec Moss. The same brewer guy that used to contract brew my Shark's Tooth Beer Company line in botttles out of Berkeley,CA at Golden Pacific Brewing Company(bought out by Trumer Brewery) back in the day.

The last thing that went through his mind was a piece of lead with "Made in the U.S.A" stamped on it.

Now can we please get on with the business of hanging the rest of them?

Are you talking about the US, or Pakistan? Because I'd certainly love to see rebuilt schools and hospitals, but I'd like to see that done in the US first.

I just found out! The only time I've been pleased at another being's death. A long time coming. ;D While there is still work to be done I hope we can leave the region completely ASAP. Our primary reason for being there just went straight to hell.

Job well done Navy Seals! I hope all terrorists sh!t themselves at your mention.

Raise a glass tonight for sure. Got a 12.2% Stone Old Guardian "Belgo" that I'll drink while I praise the Seals and curse Bin Laden alternatively.


Fook you Bin Laden.

I was pretty happy when Hussein's sons were killed and the day Saddam was swinging from a rope. Bin Laden was certainly a great trophy, but the wasn't the first and he won't be the last.

On 9/11 I was stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.  32 days later I was in the Middle East.  While I was there (and not being able to have any beer let alone a great craft beer) I decided I would take up homebrewing.  This weekend I finally made the switch to all grain from partial/extract by building my mash tun ala Mr. Denny Conn.  Osama got me into homebrewing and his demise will be celebrated with a the inaugural christening of my first all grain batch.  I think a good 'ol American IPA called Whoop Ass is in order!

The rules on this thread do not seem to apply.
 As an example
I stated" Yeah I'm glad he's dead and all. It's just funny that the timing coincides with Obama having a deadline in a day or two to announce his re-election campaign."

"someone else stated" "The last thing that went through his mind was a piece of lead with "Made in the U.S.A" stamped on it.

"Now can we please get on with the business of hanging the rest of them?

Yet one of the moderators singled me out  ""Bob, my friend, you came real close."

Close to what?

This is an example of "selective subjectivity" on a political level.

You be the judge. Personally , I don't give a rats, and all I want to do is talk about beer and brewing but, the fact that this thread emerged and allowed us to put forth our opinion, then let it be, lock it out and let's move on. If it needs to go beyond this point, set up a separate web region for this and we can discuss/debate the issues till the cows come home. Otherwise, as most of you that are present.... I'm Just here for the Beer!   Nuff Said!
Title: Re: Bin Laden's dead
Post by: punatic on May 02, 2011, 05:41:20 PM
I think today should be a national holiday and day of celebration.  

Send Gaddafi off to join bin Laden and Hussein and make it a hat trick.  Let us not forget Pan Am 103.  That would definetly send the message to terrorists that if you target Americans we will not stop until you are done.
