    He doesn't deserve a dignified burial. I hope it's not true.

    He doesn't - but his mother does. Lets not forget that while OBL was an evil man - his family has by and large been opposed to him and allied with us.

    You do not win hearts and minds with insults and desecration.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    That's what the libs think...they think we can actually win over the muzzies with soft kittens and fluffy puppies. That's where the reality line is blurred.

    Not with puppies and kittens - but by showing them that we are people of honour and respect. What do you think most of the people on the ground in Iraq were doing while they were there after the fall of Baghdad?

    Look on the bright side, no coffin, less time before the hogfish dine.

    Before I respond to that, let me be clear, are you arguing that OBL, may maggots be upon him, should have been treated with honour and respect upon his death?

    I'm saying his FAMILY deserve some measure of respect. OBL is scum. That does not make his mother a bad person.
