Al-Zawahiri: Dead Or Alive?

Sat Jan 14, 2006 12:26 pm

According to CNN, US launched an air attack on some remote village in Pakistan where Al Qaeda #2 was hiding and it seems that he was killed there. Also, it seems that nobody knows what happened to him.

From what I read they didn't get him, but killed 17 innocent villagers, including 5 children.

Well done, the struggle for hearts and minds is clearly one the US is winning.

I wonder how much support for the terrorists this will create.

Yankees, think about it. Some people from a foreign country doing that kind of thing inside the US and there would be no consequences for them. What would you do?

children and women blown to kingdom come for 1 bloody man...lovely!  Confused

DAMADOLA, Pakistan (AP) -- Weeping villagers dug through the rubble of homes destroyed in an apparent pre-dawn air strike that killed at least 18 people in a remote Pakistani tribal village, the second such unexplained attack near the volatile Afghan border within a week.

Residents of Damadola, a hillside hamlet about 7 kilometers (4 miles) inside northwestern Pakistan, said Friday that children and women were among the dead. They recounted hearing aircraft flying overhead before bombs or missiles crashed through the Pashtun tribal village -- blasts that were felt by people miles away.

-
Can you PROVE that they were sheltering him ? hardly ! your conclusion rather sounds like an accusation without real basis.
-
The killed and the wounded villagers ARE fully INNOCENT until anything different is proven. Beside the point that around 10 of the dead were children.
-
Simply looks as if the CIA had failed to do proper work. Either he has NOT or NEVER been there, or they simply "marked" the wrong house.

War sucks if you are in the middle of it. Lets not try to simplify the morality of your own high horse.  

This war started on September 11th and we will finish it at a time and place that WE will determine. Warning: Hang around bad people, expect to possibly get blasted. Sorry for that. Life is cheap. Just ask Haji the human bomb. You want to send outrage....send it there. They "love" civilians.

This attack took place in Pakistan. What amaze me is that airstrike are done to do the job. Don't the US forces in Pakistan/ Afghanistan don't have ground unit to do the job.
I understand that an airstrike is the fastest way to hit but the risk of missing the 'targets' and killing innocent is simply to high. I would have much more respect for the US action in the region if they would use more ground action. It will be more difficult and dangerous but I think that kind of tragedy would be avoided.
An other problem with airstrike is that is only kills, it doesn't catch the bad guys. How do we hope to make progress in counter-terror action if we don't gather information from these people.

One thing is right.

ONE thing is WRONG ! the actual point is that the CIA indeed FAILED to either get or kill Dr Zawahiri. Truth of course is that in a fairly short time nobody will care about those innocents who by bad chance died due to carelessness and inability of those in charge (whomever), BUT that the worthy doctor will use any opportunity to kill dozens or hundreds of innocents elsewhere. I accept mistakes, I accept errors, but I find it hard to accept hooligans-like behaviour of secretservice-men and soldiers. What YOU as US-American citizen should request of your secretservice- and army-personnel simply is, to put it in the words of Admiral Nelson, that everybody does his duty.

Clipperhawaii, best you get in one of those restored/preserved Cold War bunkers, if you are that frightened of something or other, you regard anyone one caught in the middle of a botched operation, virtually 'Undermenschen'.
Or 21st Century 'Gooks', yours and some other posts on this thread, could in a different era, come from the lips of a certain (unpunished) Col. Calley and his Company C in 1968.

Don't bitch if your ally running Pakistan gets overthrown.
With allies like the current US administration, they don't need enemies.

We did not start this. Remember?

You should ask some people in Muslim countries who celebrated 9/11. They will tell you it was "payback".

Self-just views and disrespect for people from other countries will get you nowhere.

They are full of #*it too.

Fact remains that if where to invite, say Al Capone over to my house for dinner, I don't know if I would have cause to complain if Elliot Ness broke down my door.

Same deal here.

Excuse me but we did not fly any airplanes into buildings did we? We are not out to win frinds. We are out to kill terrorisits. Civilians always get caught in the middle. Too bad. That's life.

rubbish comparison..there is NO information showing that ANYONE entered the houses of those poor familes...

also, if Capone's family was in some house down the street from you and somehow Ness decided to blow the whole block up (rather than knocking the door down)...what would your reaction be? .

let me guess.."that's cool, he did what he had to"....yah? that's what you would say?

real good, real good  thumbsup

Actually a better comparison would be the start of the film "The Untouchables" where that little girl gets blow up by Al-abama and then the Americans (Elliot Ness) is told by her mother to get the scum.

Huh indeed Clipper, you really don't know do you?
Not a clue - what a surprise.
Clue; What Calley was involved in, you lost that one too.
Try a web search - Mai Lai

As for Pakistan, if YOU lose that one, you are screwed, other nations who are/have been terrorist targets are increasingly giving up on the the Bush administration's total ineptness at dealing with this.
So it would not be a total surprise.

I know of Lt. Calley. Duh! But why you would think to bring him of all people in a thread about Al-Zawahiri is beyond me.

Oh, it's Lt. Calley and not Colonel Calley smartass. Perhaps he sould sell you a cubic zirconia or maybe a real diamond.

What does this have to do with it? The British failure in Afghanistan should be a warning to the US.
