Osama bin Laden has released another timely videotape promising to have his vengeance on Western supporters of the state of Israel. He threatened to “continue our war of attrition” if the US did not pull out of Afghanistan, halt its aid to Israel and throw out any and all neoconservatives from the White House.
During the reign of George W. Bush we saw a spike in support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,along with taunting video’s of an alleged Osama bin Laden dwelling somewhere and nowhere,while the United States was seemingly playing a game of ‘Where is Waldo’ ; The Bush administration tried and failed to capture the sworn enemy of the state,thus leaving the game ready and waiting for a new ‘hero’ to step up and destroy the ‘bad-guy’.
For Osama’s 9/11 message this year, he referred to President Obama and his address in Cairo to the Muslim world in June as well as the President’s agenda in occupied Iraq and Afghanistan:
In the recording, the man identified as Bin Laden reiterates long-standing grievances including American support for Israel and “some other injustices.” He puts forward a reading list of recent books, including one by a former CIA agent, which the tape says will clarify the “message” of the terrorist attack eight years ago. The recording notes that the Obama administration includes key figures from the previous Bush administration, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The voice, believed to be that of Bin Laden, thus concludes President Obama is a weakened man and powerless to change course in Afghanistan because of “pressure groups.” And, if he tries, the tape says “his fate will be feared” to be like that of the assassinated President John Kennedy and his brother, Robert.
This new message by Osama Bin Laden is extremely auspicious and casts a shadow of extreme doubt over the existence of an alleged foe who finds it most appropriate to wave his presence just in the nick of time.
The war in Iraq has not gained support since the election of Barack ‘Prodigal Son’ Obama, and has begun it’s salient decline in the recent months:
“Do you favor or oppose the U.S. war in Iraq?”
Favor – 34%
Oppose – 64%
Unsure – 2%
Favor – 34%
Oppose – 65%
Unsure – 1%
If Osama is going to be branded by our media as some crazy Muslim extremist living in a cave somewhere in the Af-Pak region I must question the sanity of Americans who believe that this man can not only afford the control room present in his subterranean grotto but stay up to date with press events being attended to by our current President.
Whether you believe in the fable of Osama Bin Laden or not, you must admit that there is a tremendous dosage of irony laced in this bitter and never-ending story. Just when you think the man is gone he pops up only to shake his fist in our general direction – while the Neoconservative have a field day shouting,” SEE,SEE! I told you he’s real!”
Approval ratings for Obama and the asinine wars of the West are down for the count and time will surely tell if this new “Osama recording” will do anything to stop ratings from hitting rock bottom.
