American al-Qaeda Cries “Uncle”

Published by at 10:19 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

al-Qaeda is in deep, deep trouble in the Middle East. Since 9-11 and their one success, President Bush made good on his claim at the WTC site where, through a bullhorn, be promised those responsible for 9-11 would be hearing from all of us, soon. Now Afghanistan is a promising democracy with a bright future. And Iraq is on its way to changing the face of the Middle East. Not so much because Saddam Hussein is gone and unable to destabilize the region as before, and not because Iraq is the first large democracy in the region combining three Muslim factions into a single governing entity. While those two features of Iraq and large and important, they pale in comparison to the result al-Qaeda has garnered from Iraq. Their brutal ways created a massive backlash across the country. Former allies and enablers have now sworn on the Koran to defeat al-Qaeda. And the Muslim world is spurning the murderous ways of al-Qaeda, which is obvious given Muslims are by far the most numerous victims of al-Qaeda’s bloodlust.

So as Iraq has become a terminal disaster for al-Qaeda, it is not surprising they have released a video with lots of bravado and lame threats, and a cry to the US to stop whipping them up so badly:

American al Qaeda leader Adam Gadahn says al Qaeda will continue to target the United States at home and overseas, singling out U.S. embassies as a target, in a new Internet video released by as Sahab, the propaganda wing of al Qaeda.

“We shall continue to target you at home and abroad, just as you target us at home and abroad, and these spy dens and military command and control centers from which you plotted your aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, and which still provide vital moral, military, material and logistical support to the Crusade, shall continue to be legitimate targets for brave Muslims,” says Gadahn, who hails from Orange County, Calif. “Stop the Crusade, and leave the Muslims alone”.

Emphasis mine. Gadahn seems to be almost pleading in that last bit. It’s as if al-Qaeda is saying “you better stop or else we might try and hit you”. It sounds to me like al-Qaeda is crying “uncle” because they are in a headlock and finally realizing they are not strong enough to get out of it. Too bad, they should have thought of this before 9-11 and all the other attacks.

  1. Bin Laden Boytoy Blabs in New Video…

    I wonder if he did an advance screening at the KosKidz Konvention?…

  2. I agree with you AJ. There has been great success the last few months. In fact we made sure there Spring offensive in Afghinstan never got off the ground.

    I am hoping the media continues to report it. I still think something is coming. A tiger is most dangerous when it is cornered. BUt I do think we have the momentum

    As we all know, there will be no formal surrender in this war, no need to look for a white flag from this particular enemy. They will capitulate, however, if only for a century or two.

    I believe that one of the best signs we could point to that capitulation has begun has already occurred, and that is the waning of the suicide component in recent bombings. Remote detonations are not as fear-inducing as suicide events, and relegate this particular enemy to a level of impotence. Al-Qaida’s leadership is well aware of this fact.

    Not one missive from OBL and Zawahiri has failed to attempt to recruit willing martyrs, and it is apparent that even with the promise of virgins in the afterlife, there now exists a dwindling number that wishes to die for a losing cause. In the eyes of the all-important audience in this macabre play, the vaunted “Arab Street”, the strong horse has now been identified, and it’s not the horse they pulled for. Watch for a political realignment to begin in the ME, as the next sign that the jihad’s days are numbered.

  4. Hey Adam “Traitor” Gadhan, need some Pamprin for those cramps you are having?

    You know…I have to say….I don’t find this guy (Adam G.) and the shit he says much different than Soothie or half the Kos kids. The only difference is…Adam G. had the balls to actually act on his bullshit. For that, he’s received the death penalty from this country.

    Maybe that should be a small wakeup call for the idiots who think killing US soliders in Afghanistan and Iraq is an “expression of free speech” protected under constitution.
