Bin Laden speaks

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
So there's a new video by one of those wacky terrorists, none other than Bin Laden himself. Crazy, crazy guy.

Especially when, reading the transcript you hear more truth than I've heard come from our administration in the past year. Mind you, he's still a dangerous man, but sometimes it is your enemies that have the ability to say things that ring true, while your allies and friends must guard their speech.

Especially poingant was this quote:
Your security is not in the hands of Kerry or Bush or al Qaeda. Your security is in your own hands.
That is true. That is one of the truest statements that's been spoken in this campaign season. The largest army in the world does not make you safe. Bombing nations that "harbor terrorists" does not make you safe. Police forces armed with assault rifles and flak jackets will not make you safe.

Rhetoric aside, no one "hates freedom", except the people in power- people who have power always hate the Freedom of the people they serve.
We fought with you because we are free, and we don't put up with transgressions. We want to reclaim our nation. As you spoil our security, we will do so to you.
Those words from Bin Laden could be said by any people in the world.

Does this change the fact that he killed thousands of people? Not particularly. It doesn't make it right; nothing makes that right. "I didn't mean to" is not an absolution- the man is still responsible for his actions, and he should answer for his crimes.

  • Ya know, a lot of this crap would have never happened if Great Britain and the rest of the alliance had just kept their big noses out of Arab affairs after WWII. Heck, even if Israel had been established in a much more intelligent way the Middle East might have accepted it better. How much of this trouble was caused by the ham-handed creation of that particular Jewish State?

    In reality, I doubt Kerry would be able to do a whole heck of a lot to change things, but he probably wouldn't be screwing them up even more like Bush is on his way to doing. Is it just me, or does it look like Bush is trying to start some kind of holy war, like one of those ones the Bible keeps spouting off about? Food for thought...
