But Tom, now I bet people will make games about the squad that killed him where you take on the role of a squad member who shoots him.

To quote a World Trade Centre survivor: I just can't find it in me to be glad one more person is dead, even if it is Osama bin Laden.

The guy was an enemy, no doubt about it, but he was the product of nearly three decades of American fuckups in the middle East, we created him, we trained him, we financed him, and we even armed him.

Sure he was made a scapegoat, because its easier to hate one foreign dude than point the finger at your own country. He died and I felt nothing, just a twinge of sadness at I know not what.


Nothing is original. Apart from this signature.

Thought I would point it out, lol.

Glad to hear he died and was tossed into the sea which will be his permanent grave.

It's good to know that he was killed and all, and it's not that I don't trust our everything our government says, I would just like to see a body.

Anyways,

Oh ho ho, Tom...this is an important event, yes, but as some have said, it's not the end, it's just the beginning. In any way, we still have Newgrounds to express ourselves with movies and games. I wonder for how long, though...

Greetings from Mexico.

If there's anything wrong with mocking Osama Bin Laden's death, they should also take down anything that makes fun of Hitler, Saddam or any other dictator. I'm just glad we have sites like Newgrounds and Blip.tv that believe in freedom of speech unlike YouTube. However, my video isn't one for NG since it's a pointless 3 second video showing a picture of Bin Laden with a voice clip from TF2. Hopefully Blip have no objections.

You're right there. Maybe they're thinking "too soon" or something, but it is bullshit to take down a silly video like that when there are hundreds of other vids around with people mocking Hitler, Saddam etc. and even recently deceased celebrities.

Something is wrong with the world today, people thinking killing the "mastermind" behind an attack will bring things to a close. Its those retarded "This will never be over them there terrorist sons o bitches will always attack out freedom" that cause the real problem.


Well I don't have a signature so....let that be a lesson to you.

I'm mainly curious to see how relevant this actually is, and how it will ultimately impact our lives as American citizens. My gut tells me this is more of a bad thing than a good thing... There HAS to be a shit load of pissed off extremists/terrorists, and who really knows what type of sleeper cells they already have in the United States, IF ANY.. WE DON'T KNOW.

I'm also very interested to learn of every detail about how this operation went down without getting into the itty specifics such as WHO shot Osama.. Wonder how long they knew where he was before blowing his head off? Also that kinda makes me mad, but I GUESS it had to be done.. I REALLY wish they would have captured him alive so we could put him on trial etc.. oh well. :P

I would personally affix mirrors to Osama's body and shoot him into orbit.. Telescope sales would hit record highs, plus we need more astronomers, also it's already a cool hobby. BYE

i Think its not time to celebrate, US forces just killed bin laden, then what about Al-Quaeda?
i think they are not gonna stay there, theres a 80% posibilities of a counter-attack, im not celebrating yet, i hope not but, probably this is just the beggining

I can hardly believe that he is finally dead!

I remember as a child weeks after 9/11 watching the "Dayo Osama" and the "Diplomacy" flashes that my father showed me. I had no idea they were from Newgrounds at the time.

As LostChances said, to his cronies he's a martyr but to us he is finally brought to justice. There's always going to be conflict with views and ideologies no matter what.

I'm definitely having a can of Coca-Cola for this!

US bases and embassies were put on high alert over the weekend and were just told about "kidnapping threats" Now I guess they know why they were on such high alert. Terrorist organizations are already threatening attacks.

I'm also very interested to learn of every detail about how this operation went down without getting into the itty specifics such as WHO shot Osama..

I've gathered from the news reports that they went in with Navy Seals and there was an "intensive" fight once they got there. They killed Osama and 3 other guys and one woman was killed when one of the terrorists used her as a human shield (I don't really believe this bit, maybe to dehumanize the men that were just killed) and no American casualties. Osama was apparently shot in the head during the fight. They recovered his body, I suppose they made sure it was him and then they buried him at sea, oddly enough in observance Islam because they require the dead to be buried within 24 hours of death. They buried him at sea to avoid having a tomb stone or a grave site for extremists to gather around.

Apparently they had been planning the mission for some months and they had intelligence that it was harboring some high level folks. It's unclear if they actually knew Osama was in the mansion. Obama had been briefed on the mission extensively and ultimately gave the order to proceed on Friday before checking out tornado damage in the South. From what I've read he was pretty involved as far as a President can be.

I would personally affix mirrors to Osama's body and shoot him into orbit.. Telescope sales would hit record highs, plus we need more astronomers, also it's already a cool hobby. BYE

But then he'd have a space-grave to visit! I don't really agree with burying him at sea. He was not a Muslim and has been denounced by most in the world, even his own homeland (Saudi Arabia stripped his citizenship). I say he was not a Muslim because he was an extremist with his own agenda and is about as much of a Muslim as those cultists who have suicide pacts are Christians. They claim they are but we all know it's bullshit. They should have brought his body back to the USA, done an autopsy, catelogued everything and set it to be classified for like 50 years like everything else so that eventually all will be able to see it. Of course make extra special sure it was actually him and then after all was said and done, give him a burial at sea and don't even say what sea.

Yeah.. I can't believe they would go outta their way to give this dude a proper burial, he's one of the last folks on the planet who need to be 'right with God'. I'm kinda hoping they had some cameras on them when most of this went down, would be a really interesting documentary.. :P

That chick they were supposedly using as a meat shield shouldn't have been hanging with these dudes. Simple as that..

Anyways thanks for the summary Mal, I learned things. <3

The 9/11 was way more than you will ever understand oh and you didnt see the body or have any prove he died so dont caim you know for sure if he really is dead he was killed years ago , a woman named Benazir Bhutto said in 2007 he was murdered then she was murdered a short time later. Obama had worser ratings and he had to toop the royal wedding and Popes beatification right? ;) So now you have "the death of bin laden" This situation only proves this is a end of a chapter and a begining of a new one prehaps Lybia?Peace from Europe

Can you translate it a bit?

It's too dumb to be read.

I'm guessing you got it from infowars.

I used to have a blast playing those games. I'm pretty sure it was those games (amongst other ASSASSIN games) from the portal that brought me here and actually made me want to sign up. Looking back, some of them were SO SHITTY compared to modern games. It was actually pretty funny playing a couple of them today.

Whoot Whoot for US, as OSama got what he deserved,
but on what i saw today on the news many people celebrated too much. Ok i can
understand on families and others whose love ones had die on 9/11
but don't really need a big celebration. i mean it could backfired
