They are making a right mess of this
and everything else they touch
3rd photo down looks a hell of a lot like him! Must be his son...
Some pretty impressive shooting gone on there, straight through the mouth
Remember when saddams sons where cornered and shot in Iraq? they where saddams muscle ruled by fear, large parts of Iraq wouldnt submit to the yanks cos they fear these two guys. As soon as they where gunned down the yanks printed their gory pics... the world was shocked but the yanks said it HAD to be done otherwise the people wouldnt belieive they where not coming back... so the public could aid the americans without fear of a backlash.
WHY IS THIS SO DIFFERENT?

US President Bush hailed the deaths of Saddam's sons. "The careers of two of the regime's ... henchmen came to an end,"Bush said Thursday. "Now more than ever, the Iraqis can know that the former regime is gone and is not coming back."
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld defended the decision to print the photos at a Pentagon briefing, saying, "This is an unusual situation. This regime has been in power for decades. These two individuals were particularly vicious individuals. ... They are now dead. ... The Iraqi people have been waiting for confirmation of that, and they in my view deserve having confirmation of that."
The above quotes would be ideal if they where about Osama's death dont you think? Double standards or something more sinister?
Neither tbh, just two very different presidents dealing with a similar situation in different ways. If Bush was still in power I'd imagine those photos would be out there already.
You can pretty much see the divide between the two main parties right now - the democrats don't think it's a good idea to release them, the republicans (including Palin) want them released as a warning for what happens to people who mess with team america...
Fucking hell why arnt you at the polling station making some teas for grandma
I'm actually very glad they aren't releasing the photographs. At this stage, judging by the behaviour of some people, If you don't believe the mainstream information then you won't believe photograph that comes from a mainstream source. As far as I’m concerned, the Obama government have played everything very well over the last few days by getting past this event without creating a backlash against the US government in the Arab world. Many of their decisions which have been interpreted by western minds as conspicuous have simply been made to avoid pissing off more Muslims (so to speak). Burying the body at sea within a time period in accordance with Islamic traditions, making the big announcement late on Sunday evening (US time) thus avoiding the large celebratory gatherings that inevitably would have occurred had it been announced just a few hours earlier and finally not releasing the photographs of a dead body which again would turn many moderate Muslims against the US cause. The Bush government would’ve played this event very differently but Obama has been very shrewd for making certain decisions that have the greater respect of the Islamic world in mind despite him obviously knowing they would stoke the fires of conspiracy theorists in the west.
Aye - I rekon that has something to do with it. It shows inconsistency, but there will be a lot of difference in the leaders.
I personally don't see why the pictures should be in the public domain, and don't think it would make much difference in disuading conspirasist's.
to be fair if this was a planned event but the usa, they would have pics and even a plastic surgery altered corpse prepared for the big day.
i dont have any opinion on this, we gather our information and views from what the powers that be choose to feed us... just like how i dont care if the twin towers was a inside job. if they dont want us to find out we wont if they do we will... it matters very little to us really does it
If they had a plastic surgery altered corpse and released photos of it, people such as yourself would be jumping up and down shouting "it's a fake, it's all a cover up".
Damned if you do and damned if you don't...
we are just little termites on this huge pile of shit. we get fucked in the ass by the overseers every waking day. Don’t try to analyses or figure things out cos they don’t make sense or add up nor or they ment too. Just get on with your little life and try to be as happy as you can.
PS, If you want proof the USA act out pre planned scripted mission purely to TV check out the fake rescue of a female marine in iraq. She came out and told the world it was bullshit and nearly got court martialed for it. Hilarious >>> http://www.apfn.org/apfn/lynch.htm
This is all detracting from more important issues anyway, such as... does Pippa Middleton wax her box?
