Is Osama Bin Laden Real?
I remember the morning of the Bombings on the World Trade Centre on Sept. 11, 2001.
I was driving en route to LA, and had stopped in a little Casino town called Mesquite, Nevada to play some cards. A couple hours after the Towers had fallen, every single American at the table was talking about someone named Osama Bin Laden.
I had never heard this name before.
"Bin What"? I asked
"Osama Bin Laden" they said.
Wow, that's pretty good pronunciation for a table of card players who had never left the state of Nevada, and couldn't spell Cat if you spotted them the C and the T.
The funny thing is, I was just talking about Osama Bin Laden the other day.
"They'll never catch him" I said.
The longer this chase for Osama Bin Laden goes on, the longer the war in Afghanistan can continue. -A war cannot exist if your enemy is dead, right? And Bin Laden seems to be the perfect target.
But who has actually SEEN Bin Laden?
Oh, I mean, outside of what CNN shows you on TV, or what the US government feeds you, who has actually seen that this guy isn't a Keyser Soze? (The Usual Suspects, Google him) What proof does anyone really have that this guy committed all of these crimes? Will they ever show his dead body, and if they do, who's body is it going to be?
Now, if they caught this guy ALIVE, that would be something fantastic. But we all knew that couldn't happen. Then he would be tried in international court, and he would reveal a WHOLE whack load of shit that the US Government probably doesn't want you to hear. -If, that is, because he was dead when they got him.
Could it be that Osama Bin Laden is a phantom created by those who in power who want to keep greasing the US War machine? They could give him an image, a name, a history, and villain-ize his ass all the way from here to the other side of the world. They could tell you that he is to blame for your lot in life, and awaken an nation to support a war that could've been another Vietnam. Lack of support, low morale, and a losing cause.
-Or they could unite everyone this time around in a cause that turned out to be nothing more than controlling the economies and countries with the largest Oil reserves...
Oh, you could spin this around for days, just like a dog chasing its tail, but I think you might draw your own conclusion?
The one thing I would ask is, how much research have you done on Osama Bin Laden, and who have you been getting all of your information from?
