    Absolutely BRILLIANT!!


    Oh how Machiavelli would be proud!
    We are a smart board of people - I am sure you all see the goal and implication of this.
    The question is, what will the effect be?
    I don't think it will budge any government, but it will increase some of the populous that empathize with Bin Laden's means.

    USA offers huge amounts of money.
    Bin Laden offers the lives of citizens.

    USA wins.

    You're gullible if you think this is truly Bin Laden ;)

    How would that come? I don't get your line of thought.

    Anyway: It's pretty daring to offer a "truce" when one is sitting in some Pakistan cavern with one's back to the wall...it's hard to believe that Osama Bin Laden himself does have any control on the islamistic terror that is going on in this

    It might be quite funny if it's just some kids in a flat in Baghdad, out for kicks.

    Even funnier if it's some kids in a flat in Washington.
