  6. Bush is making the best of a bad hand

  1. "Bush you are a lying failure and a charlatan. It has been three-and-a-half years [since the arrests] ... What happened to us? We have gained more strength and we are more insistent on martyrdom," the Egyptian militant leader said.

    Al-Qaida's second-in-command has branded George Bush a "lying failure" and urged Christians to convert to Islam in the wake of Pope Benedict XVI's recent remarks about the Islamic faith.

    In a video message released yesterday, the Egyptian-born doctor Ayman al-Zawahiri asked: "Bush, oh failure and liar, why can't you be courageous for once and confront your people and tell them the truth about your losses in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    "Why don't you tell them how many million of citizens of America and its allies you intend to kill in search of the imaginary victory and in breathless pursuit of the mirage towards which you are driving your people's sons in order to increase your profits?"

    Zawahiri also taunts Mr Bush for failing to dismantle al-Qaida after the arrests of key members of the group such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the September 11 attacks on the US.

    In full

  2. Not too mention, what would you have him say?

    "Gee, we can't mount a major attack now. We have no money. We are just screwed over. Thanks George."
  3. From a PR point of view, Zawahiri should have kept his trap just and let the US Administration continue to tie itself up in knots. As it is, the gun-toting, inbred drones upon which the Administration rely are just going to reinforce their position just to be contrary.

    That's the problem with mirror-imaging- people get too involved with hating the other guy that they never pause to think "Hang on, he might have a point here."

    Phil- they didn't have that much money in the first place. $140million (the estimate of bin Laden's original bankroll) isn't going to get you very far if you're planning on a global war. What the US policy has done, as the Key Judgements of the April NIE argued, has driven people to the cause who are prepared to work for free and use their own meagre resources. This means that they don't need the money so much now.
  4. I like the convert to islam part, you know it must be serious :rofl:

    What's this guys plan again? Wait for the AC-130 gunships to rust
  5. Q.E.D.
  6. This thread blows.
