Osama Bin Laden

March 10, 1957 - May 2, 2011

Osama Bin Laden

Background:Osama bin Laden was the founder of al Qaeda, the jihadist organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets.

Hello, my name is Arne Duncan and I am the U.S. Secretary of Education. I became the U.S. Secretary of Education after being confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Jan. 20, 2009, followed by being nominated by President Barack Obama.

What makes Laden a villain?In the 911 event, he killed 2973 innocent Americans. He set up a terrorist organisation al-Qaeda and trained lots of terrorists around the world. He funded the mujahideen by funneling arms, money and fighters from the Arab world to fight against the Americans and the Soviets.

Can a villain change?A villain can change but it is hard because his belief has been rooted in his mind throught his life. He would also have peer pressure because many people surrounding him supported his behaviour and reinforced his belief. But at the end, it is a person's own choice to choose to be a villain or a good guy. No one can be forced to become a villain if he does not want to be!

Where does this evilness come from?He was born in the war time when the Soviets penetrated Afghanistan. The U.S. foreign policy by that time was to ensure the U.S. direct influence and control of oil supply in the Arabian world. It made Laden hate the foreign countries.Laden was born in a traditional Muslim family and educated to have the belief that a pure Sharia law would set things right in the Muslim world. His family was a billionaire family which gave him power and money to fund arms and terrorists groups.

Only the restoration of Sharia law would "set things right" in the Muslim world. I oppose such alternatives as "pan-Arabism, socialism, communism, democracy."

I believe that Afghanistan, under the rule of Mullah Omar's Taliban, was "the only Islamic country" in the Muslim world.

Is Laden evil? - killed innocent people without any regret - pro-war - full of revenge mind - train others to become villains

If I were a villain, should I be punished?Many people might think that a villain should be punished as they had chosen to do something wrong. But is punishment an effective way to turn a villain to a good guy? The answer is no. Why? In this case, Laden's influence still continued even though he was punished to die. His anger and hatred will still live on. Maybe the best way is to find the root cause and try to solve it. Peace without hatred is not achieved through punishment.
