I heard that Osama Bin Laden was a contractor and built a mansion/ fortress.... Everyone knew about it....It's like the elephant in the room.. Why was this allowed???
Well.... First, I object to the characterization of Osama bin Laden as some sort of "revolutionary" to be compared with the thoroughly left-wing Lenin, who was a Marxist and a communist. Bin Laden was about as right wing as as one could be without going through the wall! Fundamentalist Muslims don't exactly believe in the rights of women, for example! Second, I think it is a bit of a stretch to say that "all people" who start revolutions have inherited wealth themselves! There simply aren't enough of them! It takes a lot of people to make to make a decent revolution. There have to be too many of them for all of them to be able to have inherited wealth! Too bad. I wish everyone who fomented revolution could be wealthy, but it's statistically impossible.Black Jade|1304376536|2910485 said:All of these people who start revolutions are. They talk like crazy about the 'people' and the 'proletariat' but always have inherited wealth themselves.
I think it would be a mistake to believe the Pakistanis have any control over/intelligence in their own country. From my understanding the power is highly fractured and focused on protecting their border with India.lulu|1304459377|2911499 said:The really interesting question is how could the Pakistanis not be aware of it, and why do we keep giving them money?
