Osama wasn't armed... but he resisted... a 54 year old man against a commando of navy seals... so he had to be shot... Makes sense... And what about the US-forces entering the territory of a souvereign nation without asking for permission?
Wrong, it was a humiliating act to bury him at sea and it was against islamic tradition. Only if the muslim died at sea and can't reach land before decay it is religiously allowed to bury him at sea, otherwise burial at land is the rule. As to the argument that no country would have taken his body in, I highly doubt that. It was a despicable act to just kill him, all this preparation of finding him after 10 years and they just shoot him instead of capturing him and bring...
The US has heard the pleas of the Nato whose ammunition-reserves of precision-bombs got low and takes now part in the bombardment of Lybia, not with airplanes but with armed unmanned predator drones.
The reason for these searchings is not to actually get terrorists before they board the plane, it is on the one hand to deter terrorists from trying to go onto planes in the first place and on the other hand it is done to comfort the population that something is being done to improve security. Mostly it's the comfort-pill in order to make people think that travelling by plane is secure, basically to make sure the airline-industry continues to flourish. The...
The UN-resolution to intervene militarily in Lybia is imho very strange. Is the UN allowed to intervene? I mean it's a civil-war within a country and as far as I know as long as conflicts don't extend to other countries the UN has no rights to intervene. The other strange thing is that a lot of civil wars are going on around the world and yet the UN doesn't intervene there, so what is so special about Lybia? Is it again the big oil-ressources that get the UN and Nato...
That's a good argument, but is it legal for foreign forces to enter another country in cases where the central government hasn't control over all of its territory?
The government with which Europe made deals all this time, Gaddafi's regime, until another government takes over. The fact that Gaddafi's regime is in crisis, and will probably be toppled, doesn't give outside forces the right to enter Lybia's territory without permission nor a UN-SC-decision.Of course it's the best for their citizens, but is it legal?
The british and german airforce were landing in Lybia and flying out its citizens without asking for permission. What do you think about that?
Lybia seems to get into a long civil-war, Gaddafi has still enough support within the population and miltary and no qualms to go that route in order to secure his hold on power.
Why would you do that? I pretty much disagree with most of your opinions and yet without you this place would only be half as interesting and enjoyable.
