Now that the world is all bored of the US’s patently ridiculous “War on Terror”, and which judging by Russia today report below, they clearly lost..
“We triggered financial crisis” – Al Qaeda
Al-Qaeda is indirectly responsible for the financial crisis, one of the terrorist group’s leaders has said in a video posted on the internet. According to Reuters, Ayman al-Zawahiri said American taxpayers were paying the price for the U.S. military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Al Qaeda’s second-in-command and the founder of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad said:
“The ones shouldering the burden are taxpayers, whose money was spent to rescue senior capitalists and to protect the fraudulent interest-based system from collapse.”
In the video posted on Islamist websites, al-Zawahiri described the crisis one of “the series of American economic hemorrhages after the strikes of September 11”.
Bin Laden’s number two added that these “will continue as long as the foolish American policy of wading in Muslim blood continues.”
In the 80-minute long video, the Egyptian militant also claimed that the US military action against al-Qaeda-backed tribal regions of northern Pakistan would see no success even though more troops are being sent to neighbouring Afghanistan.
“I challenge you [George Bush], if you are really a man, to send the entire American army to Pakistan and the tribal regions for it to end up in hell,” al-Zawahiri said.
In another video, which was released on November 19, Al-Qaeda’s deputy leader branded U.S. President-elect Barack Obama a ‘house negro’. An insult meant to underline Obama is a black man doing the bidding of whites.
He also criticised his foreign policy and especially Obama’s plans to send more troops to Afghanistan.
“Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them,” he said.
…The Pentagon obviously now needs a new bogeyman to scare you all into giving up the last of your remaining civil liberties, and to blame for everything…
>>>Enter the hapless Somali Pirates 🙂
Piracy is the new terrorism, word has it. Or is it, as it has been suggested by the Pentagon, simply a new branch of the old terrorism which is the leading issue for US security concerns?
The US-Africa Command head, General William Ward, has pointed out that there is no evidence of links between Somalian pirates and Al-Qaeda, despite reports of such ties emerging earlier this week. Nevertheless, now that such a concern has been expressed by the US State Department, questions are being posed about the reasoning behind the US presence in the area and its eventual consequences.
Just how stupid do they think you are? and more to the point, are you?
