Bin Laden Pandering to the Left

With the latest audio of Osama Bin Laden being aired recently and hearing what he says now, how can we think anything other than he is pandering to the American Left? He claims to be winning the War on Terror, yet says he’s all for a truce?

Sorry, when you have an enemy on the ropes especially an enemy that you despise and refer to as the “Great Satan,” you finish him off, not offer to call a truce.

Let’s look at some of what Bin Laden has said;

Bin Laden states, "The new operations of al-Qaida has not happened not because we could not penetrate the security measures. It is being prepared and you’ll see it in your homeland very soon." Yet, he goes on to say, "We do not mind establishing a long-term truce between us and you."

Are we to tremble in fear and gladly grasp at his offer of a truce? I don’t think so and neither, it seems, does President Bush, who responded with, “we do not negotiate with terrorists.”

"This message is about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how to end those wars," it began. “It was not my intention to talk to you about this, because those wars are definitely going our way.”

If, as he claims, these “wars” are going their way and they are winning, wouldn’t his ‘victory’ be the end? Obviously, they aren’t going his way at all.

"But what triggered my desire to talk to you is the continuous deliberate misinformation given by your President [George] Bush, when it comes to polls made in your home country which reveal that the majority of your people are willing to withdraw US forces from Iraq.”

Did he miss that several of these polls that say we would like to see our Military return from the war actually state we wish them Godspeed and to return after their victory is complete? Maybe he has accessed Daily Kos or Democratic Underground and believes they are true Patriotic Americans? I do believe the misinformation was fed to him, not the American Public (other than the daily bashing and reporting of only the bad news from the war fronts) Maybe Bin Laden only receives the New York Slimes? That would account for his ignorance.

"We know that the majority of your people want this war to end and opinion polls show the Americans do not want to fight the Muslims on Muslim land, nor do they want Muslims to fight them on their [US] land.

Again, a dodge. Of course we Americans aren’t opposed to Islam itself. We aren’t against the Muslim people. Don’t we have a rather large Muslim population within our country? True, we also have hotheads who think all Muslims are terrorists, but they are wrong, dead wrong.

"But Bush does not want this and claims that it is better to fight his enemies on their land rather than on American land."Bush tried to ignore the polls that demanded that he end the war in Iraq.”

No, Bush would like to see Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda network decimated, finished, defeated. As long as they are free and able to mount another attack, I fear they will make 9-11 look like nothing at all. Osama, old boy, try subscribing to another American newspaper. The one you are receiving is feeding you garbage.

Reminds me of Walter Cronkite and the Tet of 68 offensive where Cronkite effectively snatched and American defeat right of a decisive victory.

"We are getting increasingly stronger while your situation is getting from bad to worse," he told the US, referring to poor US troop morale and the huge economic losses inflicted by the war.”

Again, he must be reading far left Democrat forums. They are the only ones believing this nonsense, yet enjoying a robust economy while they complain about it.

"The war in Iraq is raging and the operations in Afghanistan are increasing."

“Raging?” If means that we are decimating his numbers there, then I agree. But, in true cowardly fashion, he bloviates and tries to convince the rest of the world what just isn’t so.

"In response to the substance of the polls in the US, which indicate that Americans do not want to fight Muslims on Muslim land, nor do they want Muslims to fight them on their land, we do not mind offering a long-term truce based on just conditions that we will stick to.

"We are a nation that Allah banned from lying and stabbing others in the back, hence both parties of the truce will enjoy stability and security to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan, which were destroyed by war.”

Excuse me? Allah bans them from “lying and stabbing others in the back?” Yet, this same treacherous slime bag directs an operation that saw 4 airliners hijacked and three flown into occupied buildings with the fourth being crashed by some very brave passengers? His people have no problem video taping themselves slowly sawing a man’s head off as he screams in agony? I don’t think Allah permits them to soil a Mosque by hiding in the Holy Place and shooting at passing troops or civilians. Nor do I think Allah encourages them to use a Holy Place, as a fortress knowing troops will not return fire on the Muslim Holy Site.

"There is no problem in this solution, but it will prevent hundreds of billions from going to influential people and war lords in America – those who supported Bush’s electoral campaign – and from this, we can understand Bush and his gang’s insistence on continuing the war." 

Now this quip sounds like it was copied right off of a far left forum. War Lords? Gangs?

Addressing Americans again, he said: "If your desire for peace, stability and reconciliation was true, here we have given you the answer to your call."

I’ll give Bin Laden a better call for “peace, stability and reconciliation.” Wrap yourself in a dynamite vest and walk into a meeting of your top lieutenants and detonate yourself. You have called on several others to do just that and sent them off to their deaths for your demonic vision of world domination under a far radical view of an otherwise peaceful religion. Do the honorable thing, Bin Laden, and send yourself off to wherever it is you think you will have 72 virgins waiting for you.

Once you get there, I’m afraid you will find out your real reward will be 72 ‘virgin’ Goats for your pleasure.

Your call is nothing nor should it be heeded. If Bin Laden made this recently, this is a smokescreen trying to get people off guard as his network of terrorists plan on initiating their next attack. This is not a sincere person and words like this, no matter how sugar coated, show me a desperate failure of a leader.

He is on the ropes and he knows it and although he manages to pull of some more attacks, he is doomed. It is only a matter of time.

Yet, he has studied America and Viet Nam and has discovered the only way he can defeat America is to follow the example of the North Vietnamese. Keep the leftist press on your side and make sure there is nothing but negative news about our efforts. Our Leftstream media hates President Bush so much, they are only too glad to oblige. Turn public opinion against the war effort and just like in Viet Nam, they will demand troop pullouts and turn their backs on a suffering Iraqi people, just as they did the South Vietnamese in 1975.

God help us if we allow that to happen again!
