OSAMA AND HIS STRADIVARIUS
CATEGORY: War on Terror

He may be an evil, thuggish brute but no one could ever accuse Osama Bin Laden of being dumb.

Actually, it really doesn’t take that much for an enemy of the United States with internet access to figure out how best to divide America; echo one side’s talking points.

And Osama has the liberals down cold. This is from his statement offering us a “truce” of some kind, the quid pro quo not as yet clear:

“We do not mind offering you a long-term truce with fair conditions that we adhere to,” he said. “We are a nation that God has forbidden to lie and cheat. So both sides can enjoy security and stability under this truce so we can build Iraq and Afghanistan, which have been destroyed in this war. There is no shame in this solution, which prevents the wasting of billions of dollars that have gone to those with influence and merchants of war in America.”

Kos couldn’t have said it better.

Translation: Bush’s tax cuts and eeeeevil Haliburton are at fault. The only question will be is the left smart enough to recognize the fact that Osama knows them so well that he plays them like a violin whenever he releases one of these tapes.

How long before we here some mindless lefty out there prattling on about negotiating with Bin Laden? After all, the thug sounds reasonable, doesn’t he? And he sure has a point about “those with influence” getting rich under McChimpybushitler. Gosh, maybe we could end this war by sitting down with al Qaeda in a great big circle, holding hands, and singing Kumbaya...or maybe Imagine.

Seriously, I would not be surprised if in the next 24 hours we don’t hear some loony lefty actually proposing that we believe the galoot and try and negotiate with him. My money is on some Hollywood type like Babs Streisand or maybe George Clooney.

As for the rest of the tape, I see that Glenn Reynolds thinks that Osama offering us a truce is a sign that we’re winning. I suppose that would be one interpretation but I think that it’s more likely that Osama is toying with us, trying to pull our strings in anticipation of doing something really nasty. Perhaps not an attack here but more likely in the Middle East. And I think he’s whistling past the graveyard by saying our security measures haven’t thwarted him. It’s been 4 1/2 years and by all accounts, we have stopped a couple of his plans from coming to fruition. That must gall him something awful. Also, by bragging that our security measures haven’t stopped him, he elbows his way into the current debate on the NSA intercept program. By saying its not working, maybe he wants to get the left to help him in dismantling the program. They certainly seem willing enough in that regard.

It takes a special kind of stupidity not to realize that you are being used by the enemies of your country. Deny it if they can, the facts are clear; Osama knows how to play our left for his own advantage. It remains to be seen whether or not they will recognize that and not play along with him.

UPDATE

Michelle Malkin links to a Yahoo News Photo of Osama with a caption that refers to the mass murdering thug as a “dissident.” Wonder what they would have used to caption Hitler?

Also, Michelle does her usual fine job in supplying links for the blogswarm.

    UBL may be smart in some things but he is way behind on his news. The left wing surrendered to him months ago. They were just waiting for the terms and the amount he wants in foreign aid, or which states he wants to govern. This tape pretty well quotes the left on what terms they’ll accept, they want unconditional surrender of the United States, and that’s what he wants. They’re still feeding the alligator hoping he’ll eat them last.

    J2 Said:

    Bin Laden contradicts Zarqawi, who said recently the war will only end with the entire world is under Sharia. There is no concept of truce in this statement. These two guys should get together somewhere, public I hope, and resolve their differences!

    Meanwhile, I believe Bush is the one talking about reducing troop levels, along with many others. bin Laden noted in an earlier pronouncement that US budget deficits signal to the world that we’re not able to sustain long-term conflict; if you’re serious as a blogger, you need to show balance here and critique Bush2 for borrowing the entire cost of this war and all homeland security measures, giving bin Laden factual material for his tirades. Bush2 was indeed afraid to ask voters for a financial sacrifice lest his razor-thin margin of victory be cut. This is the first war we’ve ever fought with tax cuts and funds borrowed from a Communist country (China). Why are Republicans today afraid to say “The war is consuming 10% of the Federal Budget; therefore, all federal taxes are 1.1 times higher than they were before. If you don’t like it, vote me out of office.” Meanwhile, my unborn grandchildren will be paying the debt for this war when new challenges we can’t even imagine will face them in 20 or 30 years. Why can’t we pay our own way?

    Nice Blog.

    I wouldn’t really expect (or want) one titled “Rightwing Nuthouse” to be balanced. Striving too hard for balance, or “neutrality,” often results in true objectivity being thrown out the window, anyhow.

    Anyway, it’d be nice if Glenn Reynold’s—whoever that is—is right, and this stunt is a consequence of AQ simply getting clobbered.

    Well,J2, I think fighting the war on terror HAS to be priority number one. Or we will all die, and “our” USA will be gone. We have enough tax revenues to do this without going in the hole. What is putting us in the hole are entitlements. And undisciplined congressional spending on pork barrel projects. Ten years ago the govt admitted that 23% of medicaid was fraud. What do you think it is now? Why aren’t you railing against money spent on illegal aliens for education, crime and medical care? Where’s your ourtage against all the drunks and drug addicts getting tax money? Or how about those on disability that are faking it? Or those on unemployment who aren’t looking for work? Clean up the fraud waste and abuse first, then turn your eyes to the effort against terror.

    OSAMA SPEAKS

    “O.K. Mr. President. We are ready to start taping.”
    “Is this guy who’s going to do Osama’s voice the best we could find?”
    “Yes, Mr. President. We have thoroughly mapped his DNA and brain physiology, and we’ve done a computer analysis of voice characteristics. We feel that we have a surrogate who is a near identical match.”
    “Good. Let’s get started.
    “The script calls for Osama to talk about attacking Americans in their backyards.
    Limiting threats to the main arteries of cities, or the cities themselves, does not produce the same fear as telling citizens that they are not safe in their own homes and backyards.”
    “We also want Osama to say that Americans want their President to pull troops out of Iraq.
    This will pull anti-war factions to my side after the recent killing of innocent women and children in Pakistan. Plus, this new tape should get American citizens on my side to continue spying on all of them.”
    “Osama then becomes the hated and evil one, and my authority rises to higher expectations. My poll numbers should also go up. Remember how my approval ratings got a lift (just before the last election?) when we brought Osama out of his cave?
    “Yes sir, Osama is our boy…Osama is our toy.”
    “We don’t want the peaceniks and opposition to have any opportunity to discover or uncover our operation, and so no video of Osama’s…I mean the surrogate’s face will be shown.”
    “O.K. Gentleman. I have to get back to my surveillance work. You wouldn’t believe what Americans talk about!”
