Translation of the Bin Laden videotape

In another thread, ST reader GWR linked up to a translation of the new OBL video, provided by ABC News.

It’ll get your blood boiling when you read it – not just because it’s OBL taking a shot at US just days before the anniversary of the brutal terror attacks on our country that happened by his command, but because about 75% of it sounds like something we hear routinely coming out of the mouths of Bush-hating Democrats.

He hates capitalism, slams “neocons,” trashes Don Rumsfled, praises Noam Chomsky (one of many things he has in common with Hugo Chavez) he has in common with Chavez), warns about global warming, invokes the words of troops who have dissed the Iraq war, claims that the US tortures murders civilians indiscriminately, says we will not win in Iraq and that we should withdraw …

From GWR’s comment:

And it’s about what you’d expect. For example, this:

“among the most important items contained in Bush’s speeches since the events of the 11th is that the Americans have no option but to continue the war. This tone is in fact an echoing of the words of neoconservatives like Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Richard Perle”

Nope, that’s not from an Barack [Obama] or John Edwards speech – it’s from Osama. Although it is damn near impossible to tell the difference, isn’t it?

Or this:

“the world is following your news in regards to your invasion of Iraq, for people have recently come to know that, after several years of tragedies of this war, the vast majority of you want it stopped. Thus, you elected the Democratic Party for this purpose, but the Democrats haven’t made a move worth mentioning.”

Now that’s right out of the talking points of our buddy tommy from nyc…

He blames almost everything on big corporations – there’s the John Edwards speechwriter angle again – including the murder of President Kennedy. So far, at last look, not even Dennis Kucinich has made that charge. Give them time. Oh yes, the corporations are also the reason the Harry and Nancy show hasn’t succeeded in surrendering Iraq yet.

Then he descends into Goracle territory – seriously, is there any Democrat who doesn’t borrow from OBL’s talking points?

“In fact, the life of all mankind is in danger because of the global warming resulting to a large degree from the emissions of the factories of the major corporations”

And then, of course, there’s the obligatory demand that we all convert to islam. Which is about the only way you can distinguish this nonsense from the non-sequiturs spouted by our average domestic leftists.


I think I’m gonna be sick.

Semi-Related: Whew – just in time! John Edwards has a plan to battle terrorism. With what? A pair of hair shears? OBL must be shaking in his cave! :-ss
