The US military appears increasingly confident of finding al Qaida chief Usama bin Laden and other senior militants this year.
pakistan has arrested more than 500 al-Qaida suspects and handed them over to the United States over the past two years.


Troops from both sides have launched a fresh offensive against al-Qaida and Taliban fighters hiding in remote tribal areas (South Waziristan) near the Pak-Afghan border.


"We are on the hunt for al-Qaida," Bush told a meeting of US governors at the White House.


"It requires all assets, intelligence assets and military assets, to chase them down and bring them to justice, and we're going pretty good - better than pretty good," he said.



1. Why do you think importance was not given to Osama Bin Laden's capturing during early days of war on terror in Afghanistan?


2- Is the recent agressive hunt compaign against Osama Bin Laden, a possible political move of President Bush for coming US elections?

The USA is truly evil

Against American emperialism, Osama seems like a benign freedom fighter

Kris, New Zealand - 20 March, 2004

Bush regime policies are to rule people by creating false fears. They did not pay any attention to this matter until now because Democrats starting raising question about success on so called "War on Terrorism" and Bush approval ratings has dropped to lowest levels. This nothing but a election year compaign to give Bush a boast in polls. Bush four more year in office will be a disaster for world peace as well as for America.

I have few more comments which is not related to the subject but for the close minded westerners.

America is the most hatred country in the world according to latest independent polls. This hate is not restricted to Muslim countries it includes Latin America and South American countries Europe Russia.

The majority of the American and Westerners have understanding problem that this hatred is not against the people but its "Real" hatred against the wrong policies of America.

Bush who is a known moron has no respect for democracy. Bush will praise and support any "dictator" who aggress with this stupid policies with no hasitation of calling Spain's election a "Terrorists Win".

Bush evil regime has supported Haiti criminals and kidnaped Aristide.

Bush regime is constantly creating chaos against the elected President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.

America can occupy any country they want with their military power is absolutely wrong. America do not have the financial and human resources to occupy other country as Iraq has become a quagmire and is not in anyway under the control of illegal occupiers. Spain's Zapatero has described it correctly Iraq is a "fiasco".

The Americans do not have any interest to promote democracy or to improve the human living conditions of common people of third world countries. All they want is to protect their own interests by installing the "Puppet" governments of bastards Chalabi and Karzai in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Democracy & Freedom what America stands for is just a bumber sticker. Bush crminal regime spin doctors are busy on news network lying about Iraq more and more by raising stupid questions "Is Iraq better off without Saddam?" is successful effort to change the minds of illeterate ignorant American voters. The answer to this question is "No Iraq is not better by removing Saddam from power". Read the real news instead of watching CNN, MSNBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, BBC.

Bush regime wrong policies has increased Osama Bin Laden popularity and support. Bush wrongly declared the war against Islam instead of taking measures regarding the grievences of the majority of muslim world. Bush has killed more innocent children, women, elderly than Osama in Afghanistan and Iraq. American sanctions has killed more innocent Iraqis than Saddam Hussein.

America under Bush maniac regime has become the "Terrorists Superpower" of the world.

America has become the fundamentalists state under Bush.

America under Bush is commiting worst human rights crimes.

America where now not supporting Bush's wrong policies makes that person a terrorist.

I am sick and tired of all political spining where the fact is that world has become more dangerous place because a moron is occupying White House. I also do have fear that illeterate ignorant Americans will reelect this idiot for the second term.

He is killing his own people.Wasn't he suppose to save us from our enimies? or may be he forgot who our enimes are.

the king, Canada - 21 March, 2004

Hi. This is my first time to this website and it is interesting to see the views posted here from people all over the world. Some say OBL is a true Muslim, others say he is evil. Some say the US brings much good, others say much evil. Some say they want to see the evidence that OBL had anything to do with 9/11. OBL translated from his videotape released to the media shortly after 9/11: "We calculated that the floors that would be hit would be three or four floors…I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all that we had hoped for." He said he did, take that for what it's worth. OBL is also quoted as saying, "Our enemy, the target -- if God gives Muslims the opportunity to do so -- is every American male, whether he is directly fighting us or paying taxes." –Jamal Isma'il interview of OBL in '99. Here he is expanding the principle that “attack is "only" to be directed against those who are attack you and only to the extent of the initial aggression, not to exceed it. If the enemy kills your civilians even then you are not supposed to kill their civilians. Only those who attack you are to be attacked. 'Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Indeed God does not love transgressors (Koran 2:192-193)'” –Muhammed Asadi, http://members.aol.com/silence004/jihad.htm. But instead OBL is taking the view that there are no civilians, so he can do whatever he wants. Hence, he wishes to commit genocide. Logic says that if OBL is a true Muslim then Allah is in favor of genocide against Westerners. I don't think this is possible. If the God of Christianity and Islam are the same, as Tim from Florida said, then we must also listen to what Jesus said, “You have heard it said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, Do not resist evil: but whoever hits you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also…For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? do not even the tax collectors do the same?…Be you therefore be perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:38-48. But America has left its moral roots too. America is crumbling from the inside as we throw God out of our nation. Just as Rome fell, we are falling, and it is our own doing. I love my country, but because we do not trust in our God, we cannot help to bring evil with us even though our intentions are good. If only Islamic nations would trust Allah to fight their battles and the West would trust God to fight their battles, and the Jews would trust Adonai to fight their battles. All the fighting would stop! We are all brothers. The Jewish nation, the Christian nations and the Islamic nations. All are descended of Abraham. We have the choice! We can choose to stop this horrific blood feud!

STOP LETTING TERRORISTS ESCAPE

I hope you do get Ben Laden, however you will NOT get him if you give advance warning through your mosques to get all the women and children out. Laden will surely escape in a dress.
WHY DID YOU LET THE HIGH VALUE TARGET ESCAPE!!!!!
We pay good money, as US taxpayers to Pakistan.
STOP WARNING THE TERRORISTS AHEAD OF TIME!!!!!

Anon Y Mous, Pakistan - 22 March, 2004

I'm tired of all you crazy Muslims crying the blues about America. If the Muslims want to make a statement then let me see our Muslim americans, if they have the guts, to march in protest all over the USA. Also let me see if they will build their churches so they can worship in America. Let me see if they will dress in their traditional clothes and walk our streets in America. Let me see if they will raise their sons and daughters in their Faith in America. Let me see if they can accomplish that........oh wait.....they can and they do. And they do it in America. Land of the Free and home of the Brave. I wonder, can I do the same as a Catholic in their homeland? My hands would get cut off or my tounge would be cut out. Your religious leaders are leading you right into the hands of Satan. Maybe its good you live in the hot desert, that way Hell won't seem to bad.

Abu Shaukat, United Kingdom

You my friend, my brother, my sister are so so very sad and I hope with all my heart that you find peace, please know that I believe that Islam is not all about killing of innocents and women and children and PLEASE don't think that your Osama and his kind are heros, you don't find one of them boarding an airplane and dying for Allah, he is a selfish coward and will not lay his life down for you peopel, he has others do that for him. Sham on him and my Allah God and whoever else I've left out have mercey on us and please bring peace to all mankind.

Some of what I've read really scares me...I'm a mother and I have never though badly of anyone who practices another religion, I only judge someone by their actions and by some of what I read, I am scared for all of us, because it seems like in the end the only few people who will be left are those who are hiding and sending others out to do their crimes... YEP you guessed right, that would be Osama and his merry band of nuts, and all the others that are directing murder of innocents from under a rock!

We have a very good life here and let me tell you that we did not build it by intentionally going to other countries and murdering innocent people. No, we worked hard and had inspiring leadership to guide us down the right path.
what I pile of Kak
You Murdered and ethnically cleansed the land of its indigenous people
you brought the Africans as slaves killing approx 100 Million in the process
Amerikkka has killed and peopped up regimes all over the wolrd and directly intervened in 72 countries since the second world war
it has killed thousands in
Vietnam, Laos, Iraq, Guatemala, grenada to name but a few...
Westerners are convinced of their own goodness truth is they are the biggest mass murderers ever to live on this planet. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Tazmania, Brazil are just a few cof the lands they have colonised by killing the indigenous inhabitants.
Musharraf is an apostate for supporting the EVIL US the reason the rest of the world doesn't have freedom is because the west actively supports and bolsters dictatorships.
If the West truly belived in democracy then why did it remove the help remove the democratically elected Islamic government of Algeria
Islam is the one true thing standing in the way of Amerikkkan lies and deceipt.
Amerikkka is like a serial killer who belives in GOd and is convinced he is doing good when the rest of the people know he is nothing but a sadistic murderer.
here's a few thoughts to leave you with
1. Which Nation uses over 65% of the worlds resources?
2. Which nation is the only one to have ever used Weapons of Mass destruction on a civilian population?
3. Which Nation ethnically cleansed its indigenous inhabitants which such savagery that they even made reigns for the horses from the skins of the native americans
4. Which nation refuses to sign up to protocols which attempt to save the planet from gobal warming and enviromental disaster
5. Which nation has muredred over 50,000 civilians since september 11th?

Those who complain about lack of democracy in the muslim world better read history and see that every dictator was supported by the west in the muslim world,it is the west that hijacked democrac from the muslim world, just take a look at algeria where the islamic party WON the the election and france and others started complaining, the election was cancelled and the islamic party denied its LEGITIMATE right!!!!
I am not and islamist nor a anarchist but the truth is the truth.OBL is a problem that was crated by the west in the golden days when they thought communism was a danger bigger than islam!!!
And may i remind the westerners that a lot of their "progress" is based in killing the locals and upsurping thier lands, like in america and australia or through colonianism.
So when others whine they arent TOTALLY wrong , take some responsibility for your actions as well.!!!!!!!


Aqdas, United Arab Emirates - 22 April, 2005

OBL will be caught near the end of Bush's second term. And of course Musharraf will play an important part. Regardless, even if OBL or his top companions are caught, the current global problems wont go away.

The Nazi Eloquence of OBL in Global War on Terrorism

The aprehend disclaimer of OBL in global tactis of silent triggering onto prevail uneducated muslims all over the world into mischiefs of easy rereadings of Qu'ran neither beneath, will bring voidance of congruency to negotiated western statistical categories of belief into another world of freedom and prosperty for everyone, who fight against the theme of hate, called OBL and hybrid counterparts.

Gullibility?

WE stand at the crossroads in
the middle of nowhere.Fed by lies in the name of GOD and Democracy.Neither one of them
who preaches,really practices
the spiritual values of both.
How gullible have we become that we follow them blindly to the abyss.Why can we not use our gray matter and stop
the two parties from using us
as their pawns.

Khalid Rahim, Canada - 24 July, 2005

I've read many news claiming that Bin Laden's Al-Qaeda is behind numerous terrorist acts. If it is true then I've to say that what Bin Laden's Al-Queda is doing has nothing to do with Islam because Islam permits Jihad (a just war against evil in a just manner)but forbids terrorism. Al-Qaeda is simply providing the excuses so that the west can invade the Muslim World. What the Al-Qaeda has been doing has more to do with Arab nationalism which has been encouraged by the west in order to prevent pan Islamic sentiment. I believe Rumsfeld and his generals know where Bin Laden is, as he claims but Bin Laden is not going to be killed or captured for obvious reasons.
