Zawahiri’s latest tape

posted at 3:41 pm on May 6, 2007 by Bryan

Al Qaeda goon Ayman al-Zawahiri tossed out a new vlog yesterday; Laura Mansfield has the translation here.

In the video, he does the DNC proud and comments on the Democrats’ timetable bill:

This bill reflects American failure and frustration. However, this bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap. We ask Allah that they only get out of it after losing two hundred to three hundred thousand killed, in order that we give the spillers of blood in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson which will motivate them to review their entire doctrinal and moral system which produced their historic criminal Crusader/Zionist entity.

The bill reflects, more than anything else, the collapse of bipartisan foreign policy and the end of the Democrats putting country above party. And it’s obviously made Zawahiri happy to pronounce us defeated in Iraq.

Anyone still want to argue that the Democrats’ political games don’t embolden the enemy?

Liberal agitators are promising more enemy-emboldening moves throughout the summer and into fall, so we’ll probably hear more crowing from Zawahiri over the next few months.

No argument – just remember “they love the troops”.

Probably the Dems will now want to send more troops…to meet Zawahiri demands of at least 200,000

Ropera on May 6, 2007 at 3:54 PM

Yes, they must appease.

amerpundit on May 6, 2007 at 4:00 PM

It would be funny if it wasn’t so scary. The democrat party just doesn’t get it.

SouthernGent on May 6, 2007 at 4:02 PM

I posted this under a different topic, so I’ll re-post it here…

Zarwahiri says the dems bill they sent to the pres is proof that the US has failed in the war. It’s seems only the traitorous dems are surprised at this.

Anyway, on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Chris Dodd, democratic presidential candidate, and all around pukebag dem tool, was asked about Zarwahiris statement. He chuckled and then said “Zarwahiri is playing his game and probably wants the US to be bogged down in Iraq”. WOW! This sounds pretty good until you realize that al-Qaeda wants all infidels OFF OF THEIR HOLY LAND so they can institute the Islamic state!

The game he is playing is suggesting that he wants to kill 200,000 troops before we leave. He doesn’t care as long as we leave. The fewer the better. Their claim has always been that after some US deaths, the US will lose stomach for it and leave. So this complete idiot Dodd is buying the game Zarahiri is playing and rejecting the realities that the president is operating under.

Chris Wallace challenged this dope pretty good and eventually he began talking in circles.

Why in goodness name has this country come to the attitude that reality is subjective?

csdeven on May 6, 2007 at 4:09 PM

Oh, they get it. They just don’t care. They want to declare a loss under a Republican administration for political gain.

stonemeister on May 6, 2007 at 4:11 PM

And Coward in Chief Edwards (not worthy of SilkyPony title),
that leaving would cause a serious risk of genocide but so what…..but so what……….he is happy to be judged for ‘who he is’. Fine CiC Edwards….. I have judged you for who you are.

From the article:

“The alliance, including MoveOn, chose to stick with Ms. Pelosi as she ushered through a war financing bill that included a timeline for withdrawal, but many peace advocates called the measure too timid. Some critics accused the alliance of becoming too cozy with the Democratic leadership and selling out the cause.

“There’s a dividing line between those groups who feel the most important thing is to be clear on bringing the troops home as soon as possible, and the groups that feel that unity within the Democratic Party is most important and the most important thing is for the Democrats to win the White House,” said Medea Benjamin, a co-founder of Code Pink, an antiwar group that is not part of the alliance. “So the groups who feel the most important thing is to win the White House would naturally be more inclined to listening to Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she says the only way we can get a vote through is if we water it down.”

The far left wing of the party is not going to go down without a fight. The original bill had 14 democrats who voted against and 2 republicans for.

Let the chips fall where they may. To go too far is to lose the blue dog democrats and the house. Not far enough is really kind of low risk on one hand because the solid democratic districts (reference famous blue red county maps) will reelect their reps in any event but on the other hand impacts the 2008 election if the far left stays home. The Democrats are dancing on the head of a pin.

wrong Bradky, they are dancing in front of the ovens.

Limerick on May 6, 2007 at 4:44 PM

You really can’t blame the Z-man for believing that Allah (not Pundit) is on his side, considerng the fact that he’s been blessed with “opponents” as spineless, worthless, and clueless as the Democrats. What’s next on the Surrendercrat agenda, a survey to determine what kinds of aid and comfort the terrorists most prefer, for better customer service?

ReubenJCogburn on May 6, 2007 at 4:52 PM

Bring it on punk.

AteMyFoot on May 6, 2007 at 4:58 PM

Over at DailyKos they are taking Zawahiri at his word. That Zawahiri supports the Bush agenda — get as many troops over there for fodder as Al Qaeda can kill, etc.

No self-reflection that it might not be the most positive, reinforcing thing to see the enemy parroting your own critique of your own government.

Anil Petra on May 6, 2007 at 5:16 PM

Pelosi and Reid have new support, Zawahiri. Great first 100 days. Please STOP whatever you’re planning Reid/Pelosi…

Some lib jack@ss hijacked this article by posting it on Digg with snide comments. Careful what you DIGG.

shooter on May 6, 2007 at 5:16 PM

Should we be expecting a vlog from Allahpundit anytime soon? He is in hiding, isn’t he?

Kralizec on May 6, 2007 at 5:17 PM

It is time for Bush to announce that he will veto any and all domestic legislation until he gets our troops get a clean, long-term funding bill. And that this includes all the pet items the Democrats have passed but failed to up to the White House, and in fact every element of the forthcoming budgets for fiscal 2008.

Anil Petra on May 6, 2007 at 5:20 PM

“We ask Allah that they only get out of it after losing two hundred to three hundred thousand killed ……”, said Al Qaeda CIC Zawahiri, hiding in a cave somewhere in Cowardistan.

Religion of Peace huh? Praying to their God for the deaths of 300,000 seems just a tad unpeaceful.

fogw on May 6, 2007 at 5:22 PM

Bryan, can you take out the DIGG link on this page only?

shooter on May 6, 2007 at 5:29 PM

shooter thanks for the tip. I went to Digg and checked it out and commented (as Jihadi Du Jour)for what it’s worth.

I think Zawahiri is serious with his intentions. The democrats don’t get it and our system won’t let us fight like we need to in order to defeat these maniacs.

Religion of Peace huh? Praying to their God for the deaths of 300,000 seems just a tad unpeaceful.

Good thing it’s only Allah. It;s like prayihng to a light bulb. Just another invention. IMHO

Easy. Thirty years ago the Marxists took over the academy. In order to bring on ‘the revolution’, they have to convince you that your deeply-held beliefs are groundless: their opinion is just as good as yours. They win.

ahem on May 6, 2007 at 6:27 PM

well, over at dkos, they were spinning it so that his call for the bill to be dropped so that aq could have the opportunity to kill 200-300,000 put him in bush’s camp. it is like they are but fiddles in his hands. by my calculation, that means that in the fever dreams of the nutroots, bush intends to wage war for another 234 years. but don’t forget, as the election approaches, there will be another reichstag fire which the chimperor will use as a pretense to declare martial law over the land and the title of president for life for himself. unlike places with “true” democracy like venezuela and cuba.

jummy on May 6, 2007 at 6:39 PM

I’m hoping that Ayman al-Zawahiri gets whacked soon, but if not, I hope he has another video like this around Oct of 2008 and that Michelle is sitting in for O’Reilly and has Robert Spencer as her guest to explain the tape… That, I hope, will help swing the election…

Zorro on May 6, 2007 at 6:58 PM

Call me macabre, but I can’t wait to see the wailing and gnashing of teeth of the libs when the conservatives take the white house in 08.

We’d be in uncharted moonbat waters. I mean really, just how much crazier can they get?

I don’t think Bill would let MM put anyone on his show that is more in tune with the threat of radical muslims than he is. Give Robert 1 week of prime time air, and you’d see an upheaval against islamo fascists in this country. Bill’s ego wont allow it.

he could, but it’d be a pain in the ass and the better way of going about it would be to go to dig and comment your butt off.

jummy on May 6, 2007 at 7:11 PM

With the strong swing towards conservatism and away from socialism in Europe (okay, Germany and France), I believe Europe is waking up to the thread of Islamo facists. Two countries elected presidents who want to rebuild relations with the U.S. This is a start. Perhumps Spain will follow… sorry, been drinking champagne with csdeven and Entelechy, celebrating France’s new Prez! ;)

I wonder why Zawa just doesn’t set up his own blog somewhere?

P.S. Or ever a YouTube account, it’s not like they would ban him.

ROFL OK I was wondering where those numbers came from.

Translation: Thank you Senator Reid for the pep talk. Thank you also for finally telling us when you will be leaving. My troops feel much better knowing you’re on our side. They were getting down due to your progress.

P.S. Just kidding about the 200,000 thing. Now that you’re leaving I can talk sh$t. Can’t wait for you to come see us. Make sure you brig Rosie. She’s a hoot.

BacaDog on May 6, 2007 at 9:10 PM

They aint got squat. If they are so big and bad, why isnt the battle over and in their favor? Its gonna be a long fight and I dont ever think we’ll get every one of them. We havent lost and we’re not going to .

Too bad the Dems are all bent out of shape because they arent in charge of the whole thing. Let’s all be victors together. With that attitutde, it will wrap up quicker IMHO

johnnyU on May 6, 2007 at 11:24 PM

200-300,000?

Isn’t that the number of their guys who have already been killed?

Guess he forgot that part of the equation.

We’ve lost about 7,000 (counting Iraq, Afghanistan, 9/11, Bali, Beslian, 3/11, and 7/7).

Assuming that high figure of casualties (via Lancet) on the Islamic side are exaggerated by 2 times (via BDS), and that half of the so-called “civilians” were actually terrorists or synmpathizers, then 200-300,000 jihadists killed seems a reasonable call.

Thus, the ratio is at least 30 Lions of Islam killed for every infidel dog lost.

Nothing for psycho Z. to be proud of.

Or wishing for more of.
