Osama....ain't yo mama......ha...... [Aug. 24th, 2005|07:05 am]
The Time to Talk Place to Talk.


[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

So, the other night I watched this 9/11 documentary (very weird for me to do this, let me tell ya). At the very end, they quoted Osama Bin Laden as once having said this:

We love death. The U.S. loves life. That's the difference between us.

I just had to sit there and think about that for a long while. So, I guess what I'm getting at is, what are your thoughts, interpretations, etc. on this quote?

I'm sorry, but i dont see how anyone could love death when there's so much to love while living. Religious fanatics and all that jazz think they'll get their 40 virgins in heaven and whatnot but to tell you the truth the only thing that they end up with is their limbs in a million different places.

Osama is a nutbag, along with the rest of the al quaeda.

see, I didn't think he was referring to death literally. I don't know what it could be standing for, which is why I brought up the quote here, to see if anyone else thought the same thing.

But I do agree; there's much to enjoy in life.

Well, still, for anyone to say that they love death over life, even metaphorically, they have to be a nutbag.

Then again that quote could have been severely mangled on the way into english, because we all know OBL doesnt speak the queens english...

That's possible. The documentary was on the National Geographic channel, so I would think that they would do their homework before releasing something like that to the public. *shrug* Who knows.

I don't know. I think it's crazy said to be crazy. Or dramatic. One of those.

If they love death so much...why doesn't he come out of his cave?

Cuz then he might realize how much life means to him, instead of sitting back and lamenting what he's done, bragging that he's killed thousands and loves death..

The worst part is that he himself shouldn't claim credit for all these murders and whatnot.

If anything, it should be the hundreds of extremists that have killed themselves, sacrificed everything for the glory of allah.

Bin laden is chickenshit.

Way to troll a post that's six years old in a community that died three years ago.
