Bin Laden could be the next Nelson Mandela

#3
Mandela is, was, and forever shall be a terrorist, he faunded a terrorist organisation, planned bombings and even set out a framework for a full scale guerilla insurgency, add that to the fact that he still seems to like standing up for terrorists in his dotage and I'd like to drop that monstrosity in parliament square on his head

But does Mr.Bin Laden like the Spice Girls?
That could be an interesting meeting!!!! Didn't one of them pinch his arrse?

Once a terrorist, always a terrorist. At least that is what the law should state, until a 9mm is placed inside the terrorists skull. Then they can be an ex-/reformed terrorist.

Ghandi, unlike all the others was non violent and would only santion civil disobediance in support of his cause so was not involved in terrorism.

A black guy in Africa daring to fight against the white settlers? What an outrage.

Civil disobedience is still disobedience!
Maybe it is, but it certainly is not terrorism.

According to your post we should agree with everything our illustrious politicians say as anything else would be disobedience and, in your eyes, terrorism.

Mandela could speak English of sorts.

Unless the Saudi's have sent Bin Laden to a UK secondary school where he could learn English, if it no the schools second or even third langauge?

Maybe we could get Alan and his mates to do Osama's cave garden.

Spot the odd one out. He may have been an enemy of the colonial state. And he was fcuking pain in the arrse to kick off like he did during WW2 when, quite frankly, the world had better things to worry about.

But.

He never allowed his cause to be soiled by the death of innocents. Terrorists have. They have decided that they WILL be heard and if they have to smother their cause in the blood of the innocents then it will be.

For that they should be added to the "To be terminated on sight" list.
