Let that son of a %$@!# burn in hell. Worthless piece of shit, should have died in the failed attempt in the first place, I know its inhumane but when people like these who give a bad name to Muslims everywhere, tryto harm innocent civilians, this bastard deserved to be shot when he was burning. Good riddance.

sure, but police usually is interested to have them alive for some questioning, to find it as much as possible. So that he possibly has just lived long enough for them. And as his "companion" apparently is still alive, they can work on that chap and bring that one to court.
Quoting L410Turbolet (Reply 2): has been wasted trying to keep this bastard alive for a month - most likely in an intensive care unit.
you have to look at that from a more scientific angle. They could check up analysis and methods and medicaments. The next patient may well be somebody innocent who may profit from this case.

I can't help wondering how the fundamentalists will try to put a spin on this. I don't see how they can reach any conclusion other than "look what he tried to do and look what happened to him". After the weeks of pain and suffering he had to endure, it doesn't seem to me that his god was particularly impressed by his actions.

Allah would definately not be impressed by the act that he committed. No god would.
I think it's a good thing that he's gone.... we're one less terrorist down that way. Although, I read in the Scotsman the other day that he was being kept alive by MI5 because they feared a backlash of attacks from fundamentalist Muslims if they let him die... let's just hope it doesn't happen now.

The Original intention of the two men was to drive the vehicle filled with propane bottles into a very busy check in area and detonate it. This could have potentially killed or injured hundreds of people.
It is a pity that tax payers money was wasted keeping this attempted murderer alive . I have no sympathy for any terrorists.
Personally I would like to see the death penalty restored in the UK for this type of crime simply to avoid the tax payers having to pay for them to be kept in prison for the rest of their lives once convicted.
As far as I am concerned they give up their rights to be treated like humans the second they decide to murder others.

I love the news of the death, even though it may seem that I am cruel and ruthless. Truth is that I hate Terrorists- who shouldn't? Unfortunately they give the rest of the non-violent dormant Muslims a bad name as well as stir up the innocent into a stupid fight.

Quoting Thorben (Reply 9): What has happened in your life to you victims that you talk like that??
He was a terrorist intent on killing as many folks as he could so who gives a crap if he dies in a painful death himself. Obviously you do and most folks would question your intentions with a statement like that. I suppose you felt Hitler was misunderstood and just needed a hug to get over his issues with the Jews, gays, and other groups he tried to exterminate? The guy was a terrorist plain and simple and any dead terrorist is a good terrorist.

I wish he would have lived so that he could have been interrogated by Jack Bauer. That would have been something!
Nevertheless, great news. One of the cold lagers that i will crack tonight will be in celebration of this poor fool's painful death.
I am a pretty understanding and sympathic person but this sob signed his own death sentence when he took part of this deadly plan, therefore he deserves no respect nor sympathy, from anyone. These people are prepared to kill innocent people regardless of religion and heritage, and they give peaceful muslims everywhere a bad name. In the name of peaceful people everywhere they must be stopped and if it comes to that; eliminated.

Quoting Legoguy (Reply 16): I thought he was in a coma so he did not exactly suffer whilst at hospital.
True but I meant "suffer" in its broadest sense. He received burns to 90% of his body, he was seen being dragged out along the pavement, his plan having failed, and he spent his last weeks in a coma. Even if there is an afterlife, I'm not sure how he'd be able to look back with pride, only humiliation.

There you go MAF, pragmatic to the end.
Interesting we have few supporters but at least some. I am sure he was more useful burned and all in the weeks after the attempt than he has been in all the time before his attempt. I think we can be sure the Scottish polis were equally pragmatic and took as much advantage from their prize as they could.

I can't say I'm sorry to see a terrorist die... but I'd have liked it had he been, as it were, available for further questioning. If there is an afterlife, I hope his version of deity sends him in whatever cooler is available.
Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 13): I suppose you felt Hitler was misunderstood and just needed a hug
You caught me there. But in my defense Thorben is making the terrorist who died out to be some sort of victim in his words. He is also questioning how effed up the past of the posters must be to have hoped he (the terrorist) died a painful death. I threw in the Hitler reference because Thorben flies the German flag and wanted to give an example that is part of his background. Let me just go ahead and change it to Stalin or Pol Pot...will that make you all happy? The theme stays the same regardless of the name of the dictator or terrorist used.
At the end of the day hoping that someone who was hell bent on killing folks that day at the airport dies a nice peaceful death is pretty lame. He could have cared less about human lives that day so why should we give two rat's asses about his? I'll give you a hint....we shouldn't.

Not to be mourned of course, but what is it with all the blood-lust on here?
A live, captured terrorist has the potential to squeal, thus providing possible vital intelligence.
I think, a wise way to spend taxpayer's money (when did everything get so petty ) ?)
Anyway, ever heard of the Hippocratic Oath? (No, nothing to do with a large water dwelling African animal).
That he was incompetent, makes no odds-a 'cleanskin' might more likely talk too.
The plus points are that the rest of them seem to have been rounded up.
Is The Scotsman that lame a paper? Are there not enough ludicrous conspiracy theories around?
Had I said that, it would have been because I consider it a no-no to wish that much ill on anyone. That's a different issue, but I don't think the post was made in an attempt at justifying the attacker's actions.
Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 20): I threw in the Hitler reference because Thorben flies the German flag and wanted to give an example that is part of his background.
For all we know, his ancestors might have been opponents of Hitler. And anyway, the "Third Reich" ceased to exist in 1945 - would you be fine with being endlessly associated personally with something that happened generations before you were born? I can tell you it's rather tiring.
Nazi Germany is as much part of a German 20-something's personal background as it is part of an American 20-something; probably the former is much more educated on it. National background is an entirely different animal, but I'm sure you'd quickly find planeloads of people agreeing with "may he rot in hell" in Germany, too. So the national background would be beside the point.

Hm... it's not about making anyone happy.
Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 20): The theme stays the same regardless of the name of the dictator or terrorist used.
But there's the difference: dictators terrorise and terrorists dictate, but they are very different from each other. Terrorists aim to "destroy the system" whereas dictators depend on one.
