Bitch on the Blog

Am livid.  One of those days when, years later, people will ask you THAT question: Where were you when JFK was shot?

This morning I was safely ensconed on sofa with laptop heating up on my upper thighs when news flash came in. America, well done. Keep it up. Self-congratulation that is. What are you going to do with the ‘corpse’? Hang it for all posterity/pRosperity to wallow in your glory?

As you know – being a coward as to my physical safety and that of anyone associated to me – I say little on matters religion or political. But this really takes not ONE but ALL the biscuits.

  1. I have to say that I await the repercussions…. however, I understand the action taken. It would have been no good arresting and trying him. What would they do with him if they found him guilty? Death penalty? Then go through years of appeals? Put him in jail? Inviting all sorts of blackmail attempts….

    How did he manage to have somewhere to dwell and not be found for so long? Who helped him?

  2. They are keeping the corpse for DNA to compare with his sister who died from cancer. They kept her brain.

  3. I’ve heard different stories. ABC News said he was killed in a drone attack days ago but they waited to announce it until they had confirmed that it was him using DNA. But news articles said he was killed yesterday and they buried him at sea. Who knows? The interesting thing is where he was hiding out. How many Pakistanis knew about it? One thing is clear, Obama gets a feather in his cap. He already got one for his speech at the correspondents’ dinner. His “birth video” was hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9mzJhvC-8E

    • Jean, have only got a minute. Yes, the sea. Once sunk there will be no trace.

      How does this minute’s BBC caption go? “World a SAFER place without Bin Laden”. Sure. Whatever. Pull the other one. Thought he was on dialysis years ago. I am so MAD, Jean, LIVID, interspersed with being more livid. As Magpie/David indicated: Why “FIND” him NOW? It’s just so much bull. My heart bleeds. I have had it. Big time.

      I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am in Obama and his spoutings. It’s just so vacuous.

      Anyway have to go. Have landed myself in shithole of mega proportions about half an hour ago – don’t know how to retrieve my usual and previous even keel. Blast, blast, blast and blast. I tell all of you one thing: Never press “Send” accidentally because overjoyed at your son entering room. I will bleed for wbat I wrote to someone I guess not yet one of your acquaintances. And I am not a bleeder. And she is Vile with a big V. Don’t give me “Match made in heaven”. This is WAR. Blood, fucking sweat and MY tears. May we both rise out of the mud. And in order to do so – for once in my life – I will have to resort to violence.

      Spread the word to all and sundry, and please do stand by me in hour of need,

      U

  4. I wasn’t impressed by Obama’s Bin Laden speech, but finally finding him was a coup for the U.S. intelligence agencies (whether or not you agree with what they are doing) and a black eye for Pakistan (no doubt with unfortunate repercussions). And Obama’s correspondents’ speech was a stroke of genius.

    • Jean, it’s the “finding” I just do not believe. I won’t go as cheap as to say that none of us can hide any longer; though I do think it impossible (otherwise I myself would). So the MOST wanted man in the world does a miraculous vanishing act – for YEARS? What idiots are we being taken for? My god, not that long ago they pulled an OLD man out of a HOLE for all the world to see. Congratulations. Well done. From one human being to another, a truth I have not even acknowledged to friends and family: It bloody broke my heart to see his final humiliation. JUSTICE – the much abused, serving not always justifiable purposes. Yes, good old justice. The scales. Wish more scales would fall from our eyes.

      On a calmer note:

      Currently looking forward to speaking to my father later today, see what he has to say on the issue. He, as does bestest childhood friend, as – come to think of it – most people in my life, has a way of nailing an issue I am totally incapable of. My ears already burning.

      Yours,
      U

  5. I have thoughts of hiding a book in plain site…..in a library. So where would you hide someone like OBL? Right under the noses of the authorities!

    I do believe that OBL was found as described….he was smuggled out of Afghanistan from the Tora Borra (spelling?) and into the tribal areas….

    I can’t summon up the energy to be angry these days, not even with the ordure that helped him…probably within the Pakistan

    • Well, Magpie, unfortunately I can STILL “summon up the energy to be angry”. I am so angry I don’t recognize myself, don’t know what to do with myself. Didn’t even listen to Today Programme this morning lest John Humphries might feed my beast.

      Instead, have just returned from shopping with an armful of today’s assorted papers, all of them – even the Daily Mail. Don’t say I don’t spend money I haven’t got wisely.

      Naturally, and since nation’s attention now firmly glued to Pippa’s bottom (that’s the bride’s sister’s anatomy), I can simmer in privacy of my own plate’s maple syrup, pancakes and fries. Sunny Side Up.

      Yours,
      U

      PS By way of comfort – whatever he says – am just about to phone my father.
