Reuters Publishes Photos of Raid on Osama Bin Laden’s Abbottabad Compound

There are no photos of Osama Bin Laden (yet…). Note the photos are graphic. Via Reuters:

Photographs acquired by Reuters and taken about an hour after the U.S. assault on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad in Pakistan show three dead men lying in pools of blood, but no weapons.

The photos, taken by a Pakistani security official who entered the compound after the early morning raid on Monday, show two men dressed in traditional Pakistani garb and one in a t-shirt, with blood streaming from their ears, noses and mouths. (More at Reuters)

    i find the following chilling:

    1. those who hold citizens accountable for the actions of governments while assuming that the motivations/ambitions/desires of the wealthy elite are representative of the regular, everyday people who live under their tyranny.

    2. those who like to incessantly drone about the short-comings one or two countries in paritcular, as if the countries in question are the only ones who demonstrate such hostility. it shows that the speaker has been fooled by THEIR OWN state propaganda and is no different from the nations they like to scapegoat (an act that’s hypocritical in and of itself.).

    I agree with your first point. On the other hand, in this case we actually are talking about one, specific government.

    well, i was specifically addressing the original poster, as i’ve noticed that he/she has fallen into a habit of responding to such artcles with blanket statements that imply that ALL americans feel/think a certain way. i am in no way a spokesperson for my fellow countrymen, but i feel the need to defend them, as there are many citizens of this country who are not only outraged, but deeply embarrassed by our foriegn policies. as i pointed out, i find it hypocritical for one to generalize us as villians in they way that they feel we have others.

    i don’t approve of my government’s actions, and i feel that this country has been a plutocracy and an oligarchy since before i was born, and as a result i feel a compulsion to respond to particular statements, not out of anger, but in hopes that non-americans will realize that we aren’t the backwards, illiterate assholes that the media makes us out to be. in addition to this, i want to communicate that most of us realize that the citizens of other countries are just the same as us, that even though there are the extremists and those over-zealous with national pride, we realize that most people are just average, working class types trying to provide for their families and have very limited political ties, if any. unfortunately, in all countries, it seems the extremists (whether they be liberal or conservative) are the loudest, and its easy to lose sight of the fact that a couple thousand wackos don’t speak for the countless million other citizens.

    But all americans think and act a certain way: the inperialistic way in wich you have a delusion that the world needs you and you can do whatever you whant against other countries whithout consequences. It’s more than 100 years of corporate wars initiated by USA tha just now the results are blowing up in your faces you people create Bin Laden and later betray him for some other big fish while dessecrating what they consider holy. It sucks when you have a bunch of sociophatic religious fanatics as allies in the beginning just to turn against you cause US dessecrate one of their holy sites.

    Each time i read or hear a american speaking of foreign policy they talk about who they want to attack next whithout thinking right about the consequenses in therms of humanity and their own moral. Remember that each time US start a war its people in the majority supprt it whithout actiually thinking on the whys of it.

    Al Qaeda has beat US in the sense tha you became violent nationalistic fanatics just like they are violent religious fanatics.

      Have you ever seen real deaths? One of the problems with things like movies is that it gives us an unreal sense of what’s “real”. I’ve seen a few real deaths from trauma. Many of them look more like “cheese”y “b movies” than the extra dramatic splatter and gore of high budget movies.

      I’m not saying these photos are real or fake. I just don’t think you can base it on “that looks like a b movie” because real death rarely lives up to the artful arrangement of Hollywood hyper-reality.

    OF course he didnt mean ALL Americans Sherlock, but ya know what when you sit idly and let YOUR government do what they are doing to the country YOU MY FRIEND have to take responsibility,..You cant say you support hitler but you have no problem with the jews..

    Unfortunately America is the biggest terrorist group in the world and YOU are doing nothing about it.

  • SherlockVonEinstein

    there is nothing we can do about out government. sure, we can vote, but it doesn’t matter who’s in office, because it’s the lobbyists and not the politicians who are calling the shots. boycotting the companies owned by the lobbyists is impossible because these entities own EVERYTHING. the notion that we have a choice is a complete illusion.

    so what’s left? to revolt? i’m sure you’re familiar with our government’s military capabilities as much as i am. there’s no way an uprising is going to be successful.

    there is nothing that WE can do.

    on a side note: america isn’t the biggest terrorist group in the world. the united nations is. my government just so happens to be the strong arm.

    as someone who has lived in america for almost 30 years, i can assure you that not all americans have imperialistic ideologies. as a matter of fact, it’s just the opposite. most americans have an isolationist view-point. they prefered if we just focused on our own country and our own problems. however, that doesn’t equate to profit. the reason the united nations is a war-mongering faction is because it generates revenue. it allows the wealthy to manufacture (usually in some factory or plant that has been outsourced to a third world country where labor and supplies are cheaper) the goods needed to commit its war-crimes. the wealthy profit off of war, while the rest of us die on the battlefield.

    what’s sad is that when americans are open about their isolationist desires, they are also criticized for being apathetic or indifferent to the suffering of the rest of the world. it’s a lose-lose situation for american citizens.
