Oh Thank God, He's Alive!!
In a tape authenticated by American Intelligence to be the voice of Osama Bin Laden, the wily desert rat voiced his support for "the socialist government of Iraq and their infidel citizens."
Though hardly a declaration of intense solidarity, at least we know the evil bastard is alive and able to comment on world events now that resident Bush has shifted the focus off him and onto Saddam.
Hey, I have a plan!
Since we taxpayers okayed the resident's plans to send troops into Afghanistan last year so we could bring Bin Laden to justice, now that we know we know he's still alive, how about completing that mission before invading Iraq?
Yes, Dubya, you should finish your veggies before you get dessert.
I have been called a leftist, a liberal (like that's a bad thing) and a dove by a fellow Blogger, because I oppose a war with Iraq.
If being all those things means I don't want Bin Laden and his Al Qaida buddies annihilated in the most gruesome way possible, then I stand corrected.
Last time I checked, Bin Laden and his cronies were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Why he's being allowed to go scot free so the resident can commit American troops and cash to crushing Iraq is beyond comprehension.
Bringing down a Muslim head of state will only inflame lunatics like Osama and his ilk.
Bringing down Bin Laden will send a much stronger message to Saddam and other Middle Eastern leaders, and Turkey and Israel won't get nuked in the process.
