Bin Laden Comments on the Financial Melt-Down

In contrast to the clueless mumbo-jumbo that's all over Congress, TV, and the internet, Usāmah bin Muḥammad bin `Awaḍ bin Lādin (Arabic: أسامة بن محمد بن عوض بن لادن‎) and his deputy Dr. Ayman Muhammad Rabaie al-Zawahiri (Arabic: أيمن محمد ربيع الظوا  7;ري‎, the last name also sometimes being transliterated al-Dhawahiri to reflect normative classical Arabic pronunciation beginning with [ðˤ]) have somehow managed to sum it all up in two words:

"We won."

Don't worry Milo!

Your buddy John McCain is going to follow Bin Laden to the the gates of hell!

Oh, wait, I think he suspended that also.

Too busy doing the network news shows, claiming credit for the bail-out.

Actually he did say his goal was

to push oil prices up to $200 per barrel to ruin our economy.  I guess 150 per barrel and two wars with no bid contracts would work just as well.

Bin Laden, the Saudis, and the Bush crime family are in the same gang, Milo. But you're an expert on the matter, so you already knew that.

The two families go way back.. the fathers are dear friends..

Re: Bin Laden Comments on the Financial Melt-Down

Bin Laden is short sighted.

High oil helped us get green and energy independent

Bush totally screwing up the economy will make a weaker dollar a reality

Come 2010 the tables turn.

US car makers go electric
Solar, Wind, other alternate fuels come on line
Weaker dollar and the realization that we too need to make as much as we spend will revive our manufacturing

Its painful.
Very Very Very painful.

But Bin Laden and Bush actually helped America by trying to hurt it.

If the dollar drops 25% and our ~8 Trillion dollar debt effectively becomes a ~6 Trillion dollar debt when counted against foreign currencies we may actually come out of this ahead in terms of money.

Make no mistake Bin Laden wanted to hurt us and Bush is an idiot with no values.

But sometimes things work out very differently than you expect them to...
