Al Qaeda's Message to the Democrats

In part of Zawahiri's message, he spoke directly to the Democrats and said two things:

"The first is that you aren't the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen -- the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq -- are the ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are the ones who lost," Zawahri said, according to a full transcript obtained by ABC News.


Zawahri calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who Zawahri says cannot help.

"And if you don't refrain from the foolish American policy of backing Israel, occupying the lands of Islam and stealing the treasures of the Muslims, then await the same fate," he said.

You're so full of crap, Zawahiri. You and the rest of your al Qaeda cronies had nothing to do with the elections in November. The Republicans lost because they abandoned their conservative roots and the conservative voters sat out as a result. Get over yourself, buddy.

Update: Allahpundit writes that Zawahiri's message to the Dems is "you owe us."

Zawahri calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who Zawahri says cannot help.

If the Al-Qaeda pukes want to negotiate, it means they're hurting and need time to re-arm and re-supply. Now would be an excellent time for a new offensive.

And speaking of pukes, I'm now waiting for that terrorist apologist "Muslim Unity" to explain why negotiating with al-Qaeda would be a good idea.

I'm waiting to see Lee chirp up, since the world has gone super happy terrific since November 7th. Wages are UP, the economy is UP, the stock market is UP...all because the donkeys took control of Congress.

Too bad they're still yellow-streaked cowards when it comes to national security and ultimately had NOTHING to do with anything related to the economy either before or since the elections.

Kim is right, they GOP didn't lose to some new "progressive" left wing donkey party (since in most cases, the new freshman ran to the RIGHT of their GOP opponents), they lost because they left their base.

This is the typical sort of explanation we see from partisans whenever their side loses. I'd like to see the documented evidence that conservatives "sat out" the election. I think that's a myth.

What happened was that the 20% of the electorate who are independent, swing voters (like myself) turned toward the Dems in a big way. It's the swing vote that determines elections in this country not the partisans. They turn out no matter what.

And who gives a crap what Zawahiri says? All I want to hear about that guy is whether he took it in the head or the gut when we finally grease his ass. I could give a damn what he thinks about anything.

civil behavior:

If one of you can explain why in February of 2002 Bush pulled most of the special operations troops and CIA operatives in the paramilitary division away from the search for Osama and Zawahiri in Afghanistan then you might have your reason why the republicans lost on Novemeber and why they will lose again in 2008.

When you botch a job like capturing the worlds most wanted criminals by pulling the resources away from the search, people after a while start putting two and two together and start asking why? Who benefits if you use the resources elsewhere?

Why would it have been so important to stop hunting for the mastermind with the special ops and crew right after 911 to go after some two bit punk who kept saying over and over he had nothing?

Why would the president NOT believe the fatwas issued by the worlds biggest terrorist that when he says as long as the US is an occupying force in Arab land and those who collaborate with them will suffer from his revenge continue to poke a sharp stick in his eye.

Does it occur to any of you that Osama is a man of his word. He wants the occupying army out of Arab land. Get it? He means it. And as long as you fools keep thinking that the military force of 140K or 160K or make it 200K trooops are a match for people who have resided on their land and won't fight to retain it from a empire like the US then you can expect retaliation.

Have you ever bothered to think about how you would react if a foreign militia decided to occupy the US? If the Chinese army or the Russian army just decided to take up residence in Bismarck South Dakota and work their way east to DC to topple the statue of George Bush that most of you 30%percenters have erected around this moron?

Keep thinking your so called bravissimo is what is keeping us from another attack on our soil. This is a man who waited a good long 8 years between WTC attacks.

And as for the republican foray into the disaster we call Iraq we will reap what we have sown. As America's leaders have pretended to be the big boys on the block with the most sophisticated war machine on earth (and the most costly) we are losing our children in a misguided if not treasonous effort to foist our way of life on tribes of the desert.

Does any of this give any of you pause for thought? And you are worried about why a bunch of fundamentalist christians were left behind while their leaders pursued oil riches?

Man, you people as a group are pathetic. Your spin and denial have simply reached heinous proportions and our children will suffer greviously for it.

groucho:

Jeez Kim, lay off the poor old Z-man. Wait until he reads your post; you're really gonna make him mad. civil behavior makes an excellent point. Osama is indeed a man of his word and those who do his bidding are likewise motivated to a level I don't think we can truly comprehend. Why DID the US back off from it's original post 9/11 mission to hunt him down? Why did we shift our focus, not towards the country that produced nearly all the hijackers, but against an overblown threat that turned out to be no threat at all?

These guys are freaking serious, and it's becoming more clear every day that this circus of an administration is simply treading water, wallowing in its own hubris and ineptitude. The majority of Americans can see this. THAT is why they voted for cange.

It seems a really strange thing for Z. to say because it's bound to piss off Democrats to claim their victory this last election as his own...

...which is what he has done. And *that* makes sense. We aren't his only audience. He's making himself and the Muj out to be vastly more important and more powerful than they are. They are sooooo powerful that they define the internal politics of the most powerful nation on Earth.

The important audience to Z. isn't the Democrats, it's those people who will look at him and see that he was powerful enough to speak in such a way and survive it. He may actually be making a mistake out of ignorance, immersed in his world and the politics of it, to think that it really doesn't matter to the Democrats that he try to hijack their victory.

There's some news about probable Christmas terrorism in England. That would be another mistake. I think that it's possible that Z. and the Muj and Al Qaida and whatever "volunteer" cells that exit (copy-cat or inspired, etc.) are getting a bit narrow sighted, maybe believing their own propaganda a bit too much. Thinking that Democrats won't fight is an error. (My major gladness that Gore wasn't pres at 9-11 was the feeling that he'd have been *too* agressive, as those who are fundamentally opposed to violence are likely to be when pushed over the edge by events.) Thinking that an attack on England will sap their resolve rather than inspire it is an error as well.

Almost as big an error as 9-11 itself, which has got to be the mother of all misjudgement for all time.

For the sake of argument CB lets play the appeasement monkey and pull all US troops from every Arab land in the middle east, including the cessation of all US Navy patrols in the Arabian Gulf.

What would you have CB? A middle east dominated by Iran and their latest proxy Iraq.

End result more than likely is the use of oil and it being held hostage by Iran/Iraq/Saudi Arabia, the price of a barrel of crude topping $100 the worlds economy in free fall. Sound familiar? It's happened before, it will happen again.

No, Synova, Democrats are mature enough to not care about Zawahiri's latest propaganda. We're smart enough to know that it's just a criminal thumbing his nose at the American people.

Only conservatives would let some punk anger and frighten them. Democrats are smarter than that -- we don't allow ourselves to be influenced by some criminal's taunting.

Welcome back to the home of the brave.

Chris G:

To civil behavior: Your ax to grind is with Bush. Please don't pretend to really be concerned with problems around the world. When Osama was bombing The USS Cole while sailors slept, and Khobar Towers while airman slept people of your ilk were talking about "how great the economy was" and "its just about sex". To you and your kind, the circumstances at hand don't matter. If the person in the White House has a (R) after his name; you are in a perpetual state of bitchin' and complaining, hoping for the US's failure under the auspicies of enlightened wisdom. If the person has a (D) after their name, you are euphoric and carefree.

In other words, you couldn't think your way out of a bathroom stall that is without a door

The Republicans lost because they abandoned their conservative roots and the conservative voters sat out as a result.

Which is to say, at a time when there is a clash of civilizations and a world-wide war of religious totalitarianism against liberty, the "conservatives" decided punishing Bush for not being conservative enough was more important than the consequences of turning the government over to appeasers?

I don't doubt that it might be true, but were I you I'd be far too ashamed of myself to actually admit it in print.
