Apparently, Bin Ladin is going to attack certain U.S. States
« on: November 01, 2004, 07:19:09 PM »
Get this, in his video from Friday, Bin Ladin said something to the effect that any state that attacks the security of his state, will become an enemy of him.

The word for 'state' that he used, specifically referred to AMERICAN states, not states as in countries. 

This is being initially interpreted as meaning that "red" states of those that support Bush in the election tommorow will become targets of Bin Ladin.

I guess there's some confusion over the translation into english...

Bin Laden used 'wilayet' instead of 'dawla' to refer to state, and I guess wilayet means "sub-unit"

Kinda thin IMO.

Yeah, it's not very clear... I would have never expected him to specifically target U.S. states... from the "aired" portion of the video, he made it seem like he was referring to countries because at 1 point he said "Countries that have withdrawn have guaranteed their safety"...

poor Florida guys if that's true. Im not being sarcastic here cause this aint fun. If Bush cheats Florida and they get attacked because of that, then it's really, really messed up.  :-X

one weird thing though... if that's the case, why havent demos promoted it like that? I mean ... that's like the surest way to gain swing states ever ???

Because I hope that Democrats realize that appeasement isn't the way to deal with terrorists.

one technical question.. is the New York Post read in every part of the US, or only in parts like New York and Philadelphia and such?

First and foremost, you're ignorant to think that terrorism would just dry up if we did what bin laden said. There was Jihad before 9/11, There was Jihad before our support for Israel, There was Jihad even before the united states. If Osama didn't have the grievances he uses today, he'd come up with with others. I'm suprised you can't see that they nothing but pretexts.

On another issue, do you speak arabic? If so, could you clarify what I wrote here, and tell me if it's correct or mistaken.
