al-Qaeda should have played the victim

“Inevitably Obama will make certain decisions that will be unpopular and which the propagandists will quickly castigate,” Pillar said. “I expect that the honeymoon will be just as fragile and short as with the American electorate.” ~Former CIA official

This article explores al-Qaeda’s foolishly aggressive rhetoric aimed at Obama. Al-Qaeda could have played the victim, but instead, their hatred of America is making them give up on the one escape they had: A new democrat president who can’t afford to be known as the man who lost a war. Guantonomo continues to prove a very diffult problem to solve. Europe, not surprisingly, is showing reluctance to take any of the prisoners into their continent and some people already released from Gitmo are showing up on Jihadist websites ready to fight again. Will there be outrage from the Left when some more of my brothers in uniform die  because of this? Nope. More blame on for neo-cons is all…

This could be an enormous strategic mistake on the part of al-Qaeda’s leadership. They had an escape pod, and it was a way that many people even here in America would have bit on: Our problem was with Bush, not the American people. Evidently however, we are still the Great Satan.

    I think it is very insulting for that writer to imply that helpless, innocent, individuals who were held at Gitmo with no formal charges would now be serving Bin Ladin. Surely they are mistaken. These guys were never formally charged with crimes!

    Does that not prove they would never harm the U.S.?

    I say if we send them more Toyota Priuses and hemp T-shirts they will end their evil ways. The shirts could say,

    “Buy ACLU Hemp”

    Then they would learn to love us.

    And puppies. Send them a shipload of puppies. Everyone loves puppies.

    Everyone loves puppies–EXCEPT Arabs. They kill puppies on sight…

    No, MARINES kill puppies! We can twist this article to be anti-American somehow.

    Wait a minute, are you saying my people hate puppies?

    We are designing an armor suit of puppies so we can attack American troops and then film them shooting the puppies, even if they are actually shooting at us while we launch missiles at them. We learned this from our other corporate branch; Hamas, Inc.

    We tried making the suit out of women and children, but they were too heavy.

    It is easier to weight engineer the suit with small puppies.

    Look out Marines, here comes the Puppy Army!

    Shoot us and liberals will hate you EVEN MORE!
