Re: Osama Bin Laden Is Dead
The disposal of the body is being explained as "respect for Islamic tradition" following death where the body has to be prepared and set to rest within 24 hours or something like that. I would guess it is an attempt to keep the retaliations limited to the Al Qaeda rather than piss off the entire Muslim world by being disrespectful. But hey, still shot him in the head, amirite?
The burial at sea is a method to keep a land grave from being discovered and turned into a shire or place of worship for the extremists who followed him.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
