Yippy-Ki-Yay

Bruce Willis is putting his money where his mouth is:
According to a story on MSNBC's "Rita Cosby Live and Direct," action-hero Bruce Willis is offering a cool million dollars in cash, to anyone who can bring in either Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri or Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

At the same time, Willis revealed to Cosby that he is currently in discussion about making a movie about the so-called Deuce Four, the soldiers whose adventures in Iraq have been chronicled by Michael Yon, from his perch as an "embedded blogger."
He also liked Chrenkoff when it was active by the looks:
Complaining about the media coverage of war, Willis said: "I am baffled to understand why the things that I saw happening in Iraq, really good things happening in Iraq, are not being reported on."
The theory that blogs have influence because of who reads them, not how many people read them, is a good one, it seems.

It doesn't seem that finding or killing bin Laden is a priority anymore. Do you remember that interview where W says that he doesn't spend much time thinking about they guy? Seemed to not give two shits where he was. It took four years to defeat the Nazis and fascist Japan, and in the four years since 911 aint nobody found one Saudi dude somewhere in Afghanistan (or Pakistan).

They should contract the hunt out to a privatised force (like Blackwater) and then maybe the guy would get caught.

Bin Laden doesn't seem to have much power anymore. And I don't know if there is a big flying squad dedicated to finding him, as the US military built to capture Saddam in Iraq.

IMHO, a bit of context would be helpful here: by the time Hitler was found [incinerated] in the Bunker, Allied forces had complete control of German soil. Also, Hitler made no secret of the Bunker's location, as I recall.

By comparison, Coalition forces have lukewarm assistance from Pakistan (sometimes bordering on hostile, depending on which tribe you count), and there are literally thousands of places to hide inside mountain caves.

That being said, though, bin Laden's C3 is pretty much in tatters. The best evidence of this fact is a) successful elections in Iraq and Afghanistan, and b) relative threats towards governments participating in the Coalition: to Spain, "precision" (that is, politically) bombing of commuter trains threw an election, and yanked Spanish resolve out of Iraq; in England, the 7/7 bombing dampened enthusiasm for the 2012 Olympic Games being held there (and revealed that Britain's security budget for the Games was a relative trifle); but the biggest action of all, the 2004 US Presidential Election (where a successful al-Q action could have thrown the election into Kerry's camp) got nothing more than the dreaded threatening [video] memo, courtesy of al-Jazeera.

And the latest al-Q bombing in Jordan may have pissed away a significant base of Arab support for the group, on top of all that.

And a glimpse into bin Laden's future:

Mr. bin Laden, meet THERMOBARIC...

But anything can happen in the future. I mean, before 9/11 they had memos saying bin Laden determined to strike within the US, and it actually happened. It's the stuff they don't know about that we should be worried about.

The solution to terrorism, give Bruce Willis and Mel Gibson each a large calibre side-arm and a pack of cigarettes, drop one in Syria and one in Pakistan and wait two months. Problem solved with the added benefit of a couple more movies to watch!

A Desert Eagle 50, with laser sight and long barrel option, should suit them both just fine.

That sucker is nearly 2.5 kg with a loaded magazine! It must be like a handheld tank.

Forgot to add, don't let Danny Glover near the movies... he's a moonbat who just holds Riggs back.

Was watching a Willis movie called 'Hostage' last night. There's a few too many scenes of him looking aggrieved over something or other, and not nearly enough of him blowing away the bad guys. Ahh for the old days.
