Afternoon Poll: Did Osama bin Laden Deserve Proper Muslim Burial?

binladendead.jpg
This is the fake photo of Osama bin Laden's bullet-riddled body that's been floating around the Internet today. Hopefully we'll see the real deal sometime soon.
As you may have heard, Osama bin Laden, the POS responsible for the deaths of thousands of people and who managed to evade capture -- and death -- for nearly 10 years, is dead. What you may have not heard (yet) is reports that he was given a "proper Muslim burial" at sea after getting fatally shot by U.S. special forces at a compound on the outskirts of the Pakistani city of Abbottabad.

According to "anonymous government sources," after getting shot, special forces soldiers reportedly took his body to a U.S. naval ship and dropped him into the water in accordance with "Islamic practice and tradition" that states the body must be buried within 24 hours of death.

See some of the other requirements for a proper Muslim burial here.

If you look at how the remains of other infamous outlaws have been treated, Bin Laden's corpse got off easy. If you ask us, the Italians had the right idea when they hung the body of Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini by meat hooks in the middle of Milan and then stuffed his own testicles into his mouth as the crowds cheered.

To give someone like Bin Laden the respectful gesture of burying him in accordance to the same religion he spent his life exploiting in order to kill innocent people is disgraceful to not only Americans, but to Muslims -- the vast majority of whom don't subscribe to Bin Laden's murderous brand of the religion -- as well.

But we want to know what you think: should Bin Laden have been rewarded with a proper Muslim burial before slipping into the afterlife to join the 72 virgins he believed were awaiting his arrival, or should he be strung up in New York's Times Square and castrated by the families of his victims?

Too bad the actual architects of the the mass murder forever after known as "9/11" weren't blown to Hell. No names, but their initials are: G.H.W.B. - G.W.B. - D.C. - P.W. - C.R. - C.P. - R.L.- J.C.O.S. - C.I.A. - B.R.F., etc.

Any guesses ?

I have to agree with Mr. King. The Italians DID have the right idea by shooting Mussolini, hanging him by meat hooks, and stuffing his own balls into his mouth.

Why Obama would show OBL ANY mercy is beyond me. If ANYTHING, he should have gotten the Mussolini treatment or, even better, the Hitler treatment.........That really would be a sight to see.....

My idea: Crucifixion. Nail OBL to the cross. Stone him, piss on him, cut off his own balls and stuff them in his mouth.......then, Zyklon B him.................

Of course he needs a proper burial, if we didn't than we are no better than he said we were, persecuting his religion. By doing this we are showing people that this is no "holy war" diffusing the situation

just me

It would be difficult for anybody to build a memorial where they dumped him in the ocean.....but yes Mr. King.....POS was quite an accurate description of this man.

piss on osama
piss on osama

ok, so first he killed thousands of people all over the world and changed new york forever not only spiritually but physically too since the world trade center buildings were a big attraction, and now he gets a proper MUSLIM funeral?!?! and now obama talks with such a pride??? WTF. first allows a moskue to be built at the 9/11 site and now gives a proper burial to bin laden? holly fuck 85% of the world now really knows how stupid the USA is. i know its just a body but giving it a proper burial is equivalent to kissing all of the muslims asses. if i were obama i would ban muslimsm from the US and bring bin laden to the times square, hand him and let everyone stone him and piss on him. Muslimsm is a religion that tells one to kill people and be terrorists. if u look at the past massive murderers u will see that muslims are a huge part.

OBL certainly was responsible for fewer civilian deaths than any US president in recent history.

When Bush dies, and Obama dies, and Clinton dies, should we piss in their unblinking faces and drag their fetid carcasses through the streets? Should it be a day of celebration?

Sauce for the goose...

It doesn't matter what he deserved. What he deserved ceased to be a consideration after he died. What was left was just a body, not a man that could be punished or humiliated, no matter how much we may have desired to.

Giving his body a proper Muslim burial does not cost us anything but the opportunity to act out futile anger. He is no longer a threat and whatever amount of justice that should have been a delivered is now a moot point.

Denying his body a proper Muslim burial would, however, carry a cost. Legitimate or not, it would have given rise to grievances against us by those that truly do believe in the religion that Osama bin Laden misrepresented and twisted to his own ends. It would have radicalized future terrorists and cost us lives down the line. It would have turned even his own death into a victory for his cause. To indulge our anger, given such circumstance, would have been a self-defeating act.

If this was justice and not revenge, then yes.

There was a time, before the mechanized and industrialized death and destruction of the World Wars and age of international terrorism, when it was common for nations to give proper if not outright ceremonial burials to high profile enemies...

Osama, Obama, Oh Shit !

Now hold on a minute.

James,

Are you telling me that the CIA took control of bin Laden's corpse and immediately tossed it into the Persian Gulf.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME.

NO CORPSE ? NO CADAVER ? NO DEAD TOWELHEAD ?

Nice !!!

"the same religion he spent his life exploiting in order to kill innocent people".That sounds very familiar to me. All wars are fought in the exploited name of God, I'm sure you've noticed. Allah, Aten, Jehovah, or Zeus, whatever you choose to call him.

So the real story is Osama bin Laden keeled over from a heart attack, and Special Forces tossed his shit into the Gulf before anyone got wise, is that it. And our dark horse president gets to take credit for a job well done and talk more patriotic bullshit.Come on now, dude, after spending 10 years, 7,000 American lives, and $1,000,000,000,000.00 chasing him all over the map even the most anal Republicans were starting to ask questions.And the Afghans are upset with us... again.Ohhh, poor babies.

Don't worry, BooBoo, $169.00 a barrell will make that owee all better.
