    It seems the Bin Laden has offered a truce with the U.S. Gov't.

    Either way i still think he should be hunted down. It seems that one of his top men could have been killed in the village bombing in pakistan. So what do you all think, should the US gov't consider this?

    The US has the truce

    Can't think of a reason why we should.

    Have you changed your mind about 9//11?

    To stop people dying.

    Surely one must at least listen to what the other is saying.

    You must know by now that you will never actually "win", so all that will happen is that you will sacrifice the lives of your young and spend billions of your assets, which could be spent elsewhere. Unless of course you are getting the money back thro' rebuilding contracts and the young soldiers are dispensable.

    I totally agree that one must not bow to terrorism, however one must also be able to compromise. I once again refer you to the situation in the north of Ireland.

    You are right JPaul and even when one should win, one still loses. However I expect the conditions for " his " truce, will be unacceptable so the carnage is set to continue.

    Indeed, I agree entirely.

    However it is surely better not to pre-judge, but to listen, then to decide on the best way forward.

    Just how do you suppose a "negotiation" with UBL would take place?

    Should he be invited to the U.N.?

    How would one go about stipulating concessions by Al Qaeda?

    Let's say UBL wants us to clear out of the mideast so he can have a free hand to establish Islamic theocracies throughout the region?

    What promises could/would he make to guarantee any concessions he himself might make?

    We clear out, he moves in...what then?

    Does he heel to the U.N.?

    How would this work?

    Say what you like about Bush; do you find UBL honorable/trustworthy enough to negotiate with?

    Or do you enter into negotiations strictly on the chance he might be?

    Huh?

    Huh?
