There are millions of people who think Osama is a great fella; and that he's doing an excellent job teaching the infidels a lesson. So why should hearing just a couple of supporting voices on this forum cause so much grief for you?

After a long time, a group of people called the Taliban have tried to unite the people of Afghanistan and are trying to live a dignified pure life. Their views on women may be extreme. But just imagine yourself in their place. Having seen or heard about the kind of degraded 'status' you have granted your women, its natural for them to have gone to the other extreme.

Usama Bin Ladin is guilty of not wanting U.S. forces in his birth country. The case against him in terms of being a terrorist has not been proven nor ever will be as Tony Blair has already stated that the evidence against him will not stand in the court of law.

Immigration problems exist throughout the world. Many countries have serious "problems" with it. I don't think we need to necessarily look at immigrants as coming here to "take our jobs" or anything like that. These are just people seeking a better life for themselves and their family, and you can't really blame someone for that.

I do think that I will spend a significant part of my life there, just not yet!

It is nature's surivival rules to eat a weaker one to survive like tiger eating deer. But humans have reasoning and you have the choice whether to follow the animal instincts in you by killing something for your basic need or stay away from it.
Science wouldn't have advanced for the betterment of humans and animals without research and experiments it has nothing to do with a person being a veggie though everyone whether veggie/non-veggie opposes the killing of innoncent animals for experiments or other reasons like fur etc. I haven't taken till now any medicine which has some animal fat in it.
