Shit Writes Itself These Days... 'Where Bin Laden Went Down, A Theme Park To Rise Up' - MSNBC

Where bin Laden went down, a theme park to rise up
By Jeff Black, Staff Writer, NBC News

Move over Orlando, here comes Abbottabad.

Pakistan's tourism officials have announced plans to build a $30 million amusement park on the outskirts of the Himalayan foothills town that gained worldwide attention as the place where U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden.

The 50-acre site will include a zoo, restaurants, water sports, miniature golf as well as rock climbing and paragliding, officials said.

Officials in north Kyber Pakhtunkwa province denied to Sky News that the project was a way to improve the town’s image after the bin Laden raid, saying the goal is simply to boost tourism.

"This project has nothing to do with Osama bin Laden," Syed Aqil Shah, the provincial minister for tourism and sports, told Sky News.

10. The irony is that those bums don't even like MUSIC!

It was "forbidden" in Afghanistan during the Osama era.

You could listen to tapes of the Quran, or radio shows of "scholars" discussing the Quran, but that's about it.

2. So what is wrong with that? Vietnam is now a major tourist destination. So is Germany.

 

Are other nations not allowed to have sources of income and entertainment?

After war, always comes rebuilding and (in today's kids language, Rebranding.

This is a positive thing.

Wish someone would bring back Palisades Park in New Jersey.

Why does everything have to be looked at as if the glass is half empty?

11. I hope it brings that area economic prosperity. Bin Laden was a piece of shit...

 

And I am glad some people are profiting off his death.
