Osama Bin Laden a Failure?

Time Magazine, in the same wisdom that it uses to proclaim the man and woman of the year (as if narrowing it down to one candidate is ever possible) has also declared that Osama Bin Laden is a failure.

How puerile and sickeningly smug of them.

On the contrary, Bin Laden has been appallingly successful. He was able to rile up uneducated, evil people to kill masses of innocents, all in the name of Allah. And he continues to do so. He serves as an inspiration to serial killers and conscienceless minions everywhere.

And his battle is not over. The war to take over the world and subject it to Islamic domination has only begun.

If we err in taking this man and his faith lightly, we will not win this war. We cannot forget, we cannot diminish the utter evil this man represents. It is an evil which is shared by many other Islamic leaders as well. It is an evil that can bring the world to its knees if we choose to disregard or dismiss it.

I've felt since before 9/11, we've been taking the entire Muslim faith lightly.

While I agree that Osama was in no way a failure at what he was trying to do, probably in ways that even he and his followers never thought possible (see lack of freedoms in the US and around the world ie Patriot Act).

As for "islamic domination' well I would not go that far, but you probably already knew I felt that way. Fundamentalism is the evil, not Islam nor any other Faith.

We would be much better off with NO religion. No holy books. No holy land. No holy water. No holy anything.

Humans simply can not handle it. People take things to the next level, then to the next level, and to the next level.

Before you know it you have people shooting doctors, not to mention Westboro "Baptist Church", the dark ages, fundies burning any book they do not like, repression of free thought and scientific progress, and of course terrorism.

Throw it all out. Come up with another reason to hate someone else without bringing God into the argument.

Gee, Iggy, religion is the problem? Typical. The 20th Century was the deadliest century in all of human history, and God wasn't the cause. Relativism and atheism was. Mussolini stated that the Fascist cause was an experiment in relativism. Stalin and Mao killed 80-100 million people as a means to cleanse their societies and usher in a communist utopia, which is, er hum, atheistic. 6 million Jews and 1.5 million Catholics were exterminated by an anti-religious state who were fed by the philosophy of Nietzche and the scientific worldview of Darwin. Come on Ig, you're singing an old worn out song.
