When surfing through international news on Sunday I came across a stunning Article in the Austrian daily newspaper “Österreich” headlining “Bin Laden Secretly in Austria (Bin Laden geheim in Österreich)”.
Since I was born in that country I felt puzzled but not surprised by that news. Since the foundation of the so called second Republic in 1955 after World War 2 plus 10 years of military occupancyAustriahas always performed a so called “political balancing act” or in other words looking the other way rather than having problems with anybody.
Bottom line of the News article: In 1993, when visitingAustria, Osama bin Laden was recognized inSaudi Arabia and theU.S. as a fundamentalist, but not as a terrorist. Ayman al-Zawahiri however had already been a recognized Terrorist on an international Search warrant for his involvement in the killing of Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat. Osama bin Laden was issued a passport from the Embassy of Bosnia-Herzegovina inVienna and for that he must have been physically present.
Austriawas very well aware of the status of Zawahiri. But instead of following up on their obligation to arrest him they decided to prohibit him to speak publicly, that way they could claim no knowledge and avoid potential retaliation of terrorists (that is one way to deal with Terrorists).
What I also read in that article was that under full protection of the United Statesthe two of them funneled almost a half a Billion Dollars through the Viennese based Help organization “Third World Relief Agency”.
With full knowledge of the United States Government Bin Laden and his friend Zawahiri funneled that half a Billion Dollars to Bosniain order to deploy a fundamental Brigade under the 3. Corps of the Bosnia-Muslim Army named “Mudschahid”. The manpower of this brigade held 5,000 Arabic “Gods-Warriors” trained inSudan.
So why is this article then called “Democrats and their Love affair with Terrorists?
Short Flashback: In mid 1979 Democrat President Jimmy Carter launched the controversial CIA operation delivering weapons and Money to the Afghanistan Mujahedin where Osama bin Laden fought against the Russians. Though the official training of the Mujahedin had exclusively been done by the Pakistani Army they would not have done it without President Carter’s permission.
President Reagan, who inherited this controversial training, stopped that nonsense in 1989.
It is believed that the first bombing attack involving Bin Laden was inDecember 29, 1992, bombing the Gold Mihor Hotel inAdenin which two people were killed.
In 1993 Democrat President Bill Clinton refused first to recognize the “First World Trade Center Bombing” (which killed 6) as a terror attack and in the same year, though Zawahiri was already a recognized terrorist and Bin Laden already on a watch list, used the both of them to coordinate the American attacks onBosnia. As a matter of fact, Osama bin Laden was the coordinator of the U.S. Air Strikes and the 3. Corps Bosnia-Muslim Army ground forces.
So it is no surprise that President Clinton, among other opportunities, refusedSudan’s request to arrest Bin Laden as well as he simply ignoredYemen’s plea for help in 1993 on the same issue.
Republican President George. W. Bush replaced Bill Clinton in 2001. By then Osama Bin Laden was already responsible for several bombings such as the Luxor Massacre ’97 (62 dead), the U.S. Embassy bombing in 1998 (hundreds dead), etc.
After the 9/11 attack President George W. Bush finally did the right thing putting Osama bin Laden on the list as #1 Enemy of the State.
Ten Years later Democrat President Obama finally gets the opportunity his Democrat party predecessor Bill Clinton missed and took advantage of the hard work of the Bush Administration killing Bin Laden.
Nevertheless, the streak of Terrorist loving Democrat Policy continues with President Obama by officially supporting next to Terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, the radical Muslim Brotherhood (remember the same organization Ayman al-Zawahiri was a member of in 1992), and helped the same to take out Hosni Mubarak.
He officially supports the same organization throughout the entire northernAfricarevolution streak includingLibya. Sure Muammar al Gaddafi is a tyrant and terrorist himself and needs to be removed, but I doubt replacing a tyrant/terrorist with another terrorist organization is a better trade.
Don’t forget that with this thoughtless and un-planned revolt support Al Qaeda in Maghreb becomes more powerful on a daily base and with Bin Laden being dead and the Power struggle within this terror organization ahead Al Qaeda in Maghreb, sitting on Billions of Dollars in Oil (only European Countries profit from), becomes probably the most influential part of this Terror Network.
The U.S. Democrats and their European Socialist Pendants have in addition to their love affair with Marxism, anti – Private business, irresponsible Budget dealings, ultra liberalism affiliation with baby slaughter, as well as affection for sexual liberal alternative lifestyles, one very dangerous issue in common: Their blind sighting on terrorists.
They both are so eager to prove to the world their self declared humanitarianism that they would rather sleep with the devil and endanger not only their home country (Democrats the U.S., Europeans their home countries) but also our allies, friends, and the entire free world.
GOD BLESS AND PROTECT US ALL
GOD BLESS AMERICA

~~ Si Vis Parcem Para Bellum (If you wish for peace prepare for war) ~~
Osama bin-Laden the world’s most wanted Terrorist is dead. Ever since the news, Blog forums and the internet are full with new points of view and news. Before I get started and give my 5 cents worth of Comments on this incident I want to say thank you:
Thank you U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU).
You are the bravest of the brave and the best of the best. You make me proud to be American andAmerica is proud of you. You mess with the best, the night is your friend and when the world goes down you are the one to be called. I don’t know you by name but each and every one of you is in my prayers, my heart, and my mind every single day.
Thank you to the Helicopter Pilots
Those brave Pilots who gave our Seals a lift into the compound and back. No message made me happier than to hear that the crew of the Black Hawk who went down is safe and secure back home. No man left behind. God bless you and God’s speed.
Thank you President George W. Bush
It was your idea to establish the perfect installation GuantanamoBayand it was your order to give those Terrorists the right treatment to gather valuable information. It was your hard work, your persistence against those whining – left wing liberal – self declared humanitarian – Terrorist loving – self declared humans rights activists who permanently demanded to close Guantanamo Bay. For years they have tried to tell us we should give those creeps a better treatment and hard interrogation does not lead to valuable information. But you Mr. President proved them wrong.
It was exactly that treatment that made “Khalid Shaikh Mohammed” blows the whistle on the courier that finally led to Usama bin Laden.
Ok, enough thank you. Here are a few thoughts from me on this whole day of Victory forAmerica.
You might have wondered why I have not wasted a moment of thanks to him. Well the answer is a pretty simple one – HE DID NOTHING WORTH BEING THANKFUL FOR. President Obama did not lay the ground work on finding Usama bin-Laden that was G.W. Bush and the Bush administration. All Obama did was give the order to take him down and the online magazine Right side News said it very accurate: The Bin Laden ‘Get”: It’s called doing your Duty. The L.A. Times talks about Obama’s office “bravery”.
Not to mention that his poll numbers were down and this “action” came right on time for him to boost his re-election numbers.
But Obama would not be Obama if he would not show his real face to the American people.
While the American people cheered about bin-Laden’s death and did not pay attention Obama’s czar Geithner threatened, completely unnoted, that the U.S. treasury department will stop selling U.S. Bonds and cut off the states from finances until September unless they agree to raise the spending limit for Obama.
Excerpt from the Letter Geithner sent to Boehner:
If Congress does not increase the debt limit by May 16, the Treasury Department will be forced to employ further extraordinary measures on that date to provide headroom under the limit. Therefore, on May 16, I will (1) declare a “debt issuance suspension period” under the statute governing…………
What is really interesting is that Usama bin Laden was hiding the past 5 years in a city called “Abbottabad”; a city that is known also for its “MilitaryAcademy” and “Military Intelligence headquarters”. Which leads me to a few Questions here? 1) Is the Pakistani Government/Military/Military Intelligence the most incompetent idiotic organization in the world or 2) Are they, as suspected for a long time, connected and supportive to bin-Laden?
Even the primary Obama propaganda station MSNBC asks now if Pakistan is playing double games on bin-Laden, and Congressman Allen West says “We need to re-evaluate our relationship with Pakistan”.
Either way thank you Pakistani Government by proving to us, the thinking suspicious American conservatives right that we cannot trust you, but I am sure Obama is very proud of you.
The world news has been full with what is going to happen now and is the Terror coming to an end. What a stupid question; Terror has always been there and always will be there.
As the successor of bin-Laden is Ayman Muhammed Rabaie al-Zawahiri named, a 59 year old Egyptian pediatrician and radical Muslim fanatic.
He is the second in command of Al Qaeda, considered even more ruffian than bin-Laden and highly intelligent.
Zawahiri has been like the “General Manager” of the Al Qaeda Network; the man in the background dealing with all the organizational issues. Of course he will try, and for a while lead Al Qaeda, but he does not have the military skills of bin-Laden. Under president Carter the CIA had trained Bin-Laden as Mujahedin fighter. The training started on orders of President Carter and was ended by President Reagan.
Also Zawahiri does not have the financial means to keep Al Qaeda alive nor does he have the charisma of bin-Laden to inspire suicide terrorists. It was bin-Laden that had been the millionaire and charismatic leader.
You might want to compare Al Qaeda and the relationship bin-Laden/Zawahiri with the Nazi regime. While Adolf Hitler was the gifted speaker and face of the Nazi regime Joseph Goebbels was the man for the rough job and the manager and master mind in the background. Let’s assume for a moment the assassination attempts on Hitler would have been successful, the third Reich would have still survived for maybe a year, but though Goebbels was the mastermind and strategist, without Hitler the Nazi regime would have fallen apart a lot sooner.
And it is the same with Al Qaeda. Sure Zawahiri will be able to run Al Qaeda for a little bit working with bin-Laden as the martyr fighting revenge attacks now in his name, but sooner or later Al Qaeda will face the same problem as Al Qaeda in Maghreb (a side arm of Al Qaeda) and that means fight for power, money, and leadership. Sooner or later Al Qaeda itself will dismember in many small groups easy to take down.
What works for Zawahiri is his Egyptian heritage. This leaves a lot of room for speculation.
During the Egyptrevolt the radical “Muslim Brotherhood” emerged into power. Meanwhile they have extended their power and influence all over northern Africa. Like Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood has two arms 1) the civilian for public appearance and 2) the militant “Al Qaeda connection”
And the Muslim Brotherhood already positioned themselves through a public Statement condemning the Killing of bin-Laden and complaining about the worlds view on radical Islam.
What is worse is that Muslim Brotherhood is financially very well positioned too from the European Union, CAIR, and the Obama administration.
Zawahiri being fromEgyptcould call on Muslim Brotherhood to join forces.
A connection built in hell and made by Obama.
Of course, I cheer that bin-Laden will burn in hell, but I would cheer a lot more if Obama would not support Muslim Brotherhood.
Rest of the World
On Monday, no matter what news I covered, all governments cheered and hailed Obama. But on Tuesday the tone was already a different one. While Western governments still are in praise of the killing and at the same time call for caution that terror is not over, in many media’s they already question the action.
Now that the U.S. Government declared, in opposition to the first reports, that Usama was unarmed, the European left wing liberal thug media’s are really whining about human treatment. These are the same who already question the legitimacy of the U.S. to either arrest or liquidate a person outside the U.S. even without consent of the country of action; Claiming international Law (which does not exist – only agreements).
For all you liberal idiots and thugs I have a message
We are the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
We get our man
Whenever We Want; Wherever We Want, However We Want;
Try to stop Us
GOD BLESS AMERICA

The United States is at War again.
On March 7, 2011 – The French and the United Kingdom first pressured for the establishment of a No-Fly Zone over Libya, but backed down. As of this moment the military interference in an internal Conflict, commonly known as Civil War, was on the table.
The Arab league supported this Idea, but never intended to get involved by themselves just in case something went terribly wrong, and in a military conflict there is always a possibility to blame others.
On March 17, 2011 – the Unites Nations Security Council approved, from pressure of the French President Sarkozy, a military intervention in Libya.
“SC/10200 United Nations security council approves a ‘No-Fly Zone’ over Libya’ (1), authorizing ‘All measures’ to protect civilians.
This fungous declaration leaves a lot of room for interpretation and even more questions.
On March 19, 2011 – the First Air Strikes began in cooperation with Missile attacks from U.S. Battle ships.
President Obama has, illegally and without consent, sent U.S. Armed Forces into a conflict. Though he had plenty of time to consult with the Congress and call for an urgent emergency meeting getting Congressional Approval, President Obama decided to play Golf, pick his favorite NCAA team and travel to South America.
This action is not only highly illegal but also endangers American soldiers. Illegal because we have a constitution and the constitution is clear on when, where and how the president is authorized to engage the Armed Forces in a conflict without Congressional Approval.
The War Power Act from 1973 (2), established by the 93rd Congress after the Vietnam conflict was put in place exactly to prevent any U.S. President to engage the U.S. in a War without approval again.
More important than the Power Act is the United States constitution. Article I – Section VIII (3) rests the power to declare War solely to the United States Congress, and requires both the Commander-in-Chief AND the Congress to commit U.S. Troops; otherwise any Action would be unconstitutional.
Article II – Section II (3) of the U.S. Constitution sure identifies the U.S. President as the civilian oversight of the U.S. Military and Commander in chief, but does not allow him to use the Armed Forces to enforce its political will on foreign Nations.
March 22, 2011 – the first American Airplane, an F-15 Strike Eagle, crashes over Libya (4). And despite the statements from the Pentagon that this Jet was ‘Not’ shot down, but crashed due to technical failure the situation remains the same. According to UK Guardian the Pilots could not have known if the people who found them were friendly or non-friendly since they all were heavily armed.
Praise the Lord the Fighter Pilots are safe and well, but it could have been the other way around.
There are many questions that now rise from this situation. Speaker of the House John Boehner sent a few questions to President Obama concerning the American involvement in this “Action” I think he asked the wrong questions. So let me as ask a few here:
My first question concerns the UN Resolution – Gaddafi, Libya and the rebels
The UN Resolution declares “All necessary Measures to protect Civilians”. But what does that mean, who is a civilian in this case and who is a participant in an armed internal conflict.
In my understanding of the Geneva Convention (5) a person that is armed and participates in a violent action is not to be considered an unarmed unprotected Civilian and falls under the rules of Engagement.
Muammar al-Gaddafi should have been taken out 30 years ago. But it was the European Countries, especially France, Germany, Austria, Russia and so on who protected him and made him diplomatically eligible (6).
No matter what one thinks about Gaddafi he is the legal Head of Libya, his citizens have supported him for the past 30 years. Now the very same Citizens rebel against him.
I definitely agree and support the revolution, but this is an internal conflict and when the UN claims falsely that the western alliance is to protect “Civilians” this is a fraudulent inflammatory statement because as I mentioned above armed Civilians participating in a violent conflict are not protected under the Geneva Convention.
So here is my first question – why is the United Nations so eager to get involved in that conflict?
In my opinion the United Nations together with the French and the UK in cooperation with the European Union uses the U.S. Armed Forces to interfere illegally to overthrow a uncomfortable Dictator for economical (in favor of the European Union and NOT the U.S.) and political reasons (to strengthen Muslim radical groupings).
My next Questions go straight to the Situation of the American Soldiers.
The fact that we have never officially declared war on Libya raises many questions concerning the legal status of our Armed Forces.
Many Military experts and the NATO command already warn that, should the rebels not prevail, a Ground Force operation would be the next logical step. Taking a closer look at the fuzzy UN declaration the application of Ground Forces is not being ruled out. And that brings me to the point.
Since when – does the United Nations run our Armed Forces for their advantage? Since when is the UN in charge of our Soldiers? Ok you might say – sure since the UN puppet Obama is president – but where is the Congress on this?
What is the benefit – does that mean we now get access to the oil and gas of Libya or does that mean we spend American Tax Dollars (over 70 Million Dollars in the past 3 days in Tomahawk Missiles) to make sure the Arab league and the European Union gets the financial benefit?
What if – the fighter Jet Pilots would have been shot down, not in friendly but enemy territory? Since Gaddafi already declared that he does not accept the UN resolution, he could have considered the Pilots terrorists, spies, or God knows what and punished them at will, even execution.
What if – we send ground forces into Libya? What is the status of the conflict? Is this a Police Action, a war, an expedition – what?
And the question is not so far off because this question involves the treatment of the soldiers and their families when they come home according to the U.S. Veterans Affairs regulations.
Only Combat Veterans participating in an official declared War are eligible for the “War-veteran-Benefits” (7). Every military person knows that the benefits, retirement, and other social assistance for homecoming soldiers have a specific distinction – Soldiers in times of peace and soldiers in combat.
What happens – to the families of the fallen? Do they receive surviving dependents benefits of a soldier at war or the smaller benefits for a soldier in peace?
Remember we have never declared war officially on Libya.
Remember how long it took to accept the Vietnam Veterans legally as War Veterans? It took until 2003, under the Bush Administration to recognize veterans’ benefits for Soldiers exposed to Agent Orange (7). Or the legal battles on legally accepting the fact that Operation Desert Storm participants had been exposed to Chemical Weapons and grant the benefits for this. And it is confirmed that Gaddafi holds Mustard gas weapons.
What if – those F-15 Pilots would have been killed – what regulation would apply to them and their families left behind, since we are not at War with Libya?
Despite the legal constitutional aspect of Obama’s narcissist lone-ranger actions, where he thinks he can do whatever he feels like, once again I think he has confused his job description with that of a dictator. Here in America we have a democracy, a system with “Checks and Balances” a House body and a Senate body it is not a 1 man show; Apparently Harvard Law School no longer teaches the rules of our three branches of government.
I am sure there are tons of questions that can be asked but those are the ones that burn on my heart right now.
As far as I am concerned – all we can do is pray for our men and women in the Armed Forces for their safe return as they follow their loyal calling as Service members. God bless you and thank you for your service.
Pray that they all return home safe because our President in my opinion has not given any serious thought to this unauthorized action and its consequences.
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker of the House Boehner:
Would anybody please explain this to me or answer my questions? Since I am a citizen and a Taxpayer I am entitled to the answers.
