Osama Bin Ladin Tape A Sign Of Al Qaeda Weakness Not Strength.

In an audio tape broadcast on Aljazeera, Osama bin Laden has warned that al-Qaida is preparing an attack very soon, but also offers Americans a long-term truce.

"This message is about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how to end those wars," it began.

"It was not my intention to talk to you about this, because those wars are definitely going our way.

Folks, this tape was made from a position of weakness. You do not offer a truce to your enemies if you are winning. The fact of the matter is Osama never dreamed that we would stick the fight out as long as we have, and why should he have thought any different. After all we pulled out of the first Gulf war without toppling Saddam and left Somalia once the going got tough there. Osama even made the comment that the US didn't have the stomach for war after Somalia.

My guess is that Osama is tired of hiding in a hole while getting information about his closest friends being killed by American bombs in places like Pakistan. We are kicking terrorists butt and Osama knows it.

(Tape Continues)

"But what triggered my desire to talk to you is the continuous deliberate misinformation given by your President [George] Bush, when it comes to polls made in your home country which reveal that the majority of your people are willing to withdraw US forces from Iraq."

"The new operations of al-Qaida has not happened not because we could not penetrate the security measures. It is being prepared and you'll see it in your homeland very soon."

But the voice on the tape, which appeared to be aimed at the American public, also offered a truce:

"We do not mind establishing a long-term truce between us and you."

The tape went on to say:

"We know that the majority of your people want this war to end and opinion polls show the Americans do not want to fight the Muslims on Muslim land, nor do they want Muslims to fight them on their [US] land.

"But Bush does not want this and claims that it is better to fight his enemies on their land rather than on American land.

"Bush tried to ignore the polls that demanded that he end the war in Iraq.

"We are getting increasingly stronger while your situation is getting from bad to worse," he told the US, referring to poor US troop morale and the huge economic losses inflicted by the war.

In response to the substance of the polls in the US, which indicate that Americans do not want to fight Muslims on Muslim land, nor do they want Muslims to fight them on their land, we do not mind offering a long-term truce based on just conditions that we will stick to.

Spoken like a true anti-war activist at a rally.

Tell me that Al Qaeda is not watching the actions of Democrats like John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, and John Kerry. Tell me they are not taking there anti war statements and using them against us.

I am just wondering who is going to be the first one on the left to run to a microphone with a news crew and say maybe we should listen to Osama. Let's call a truce. We should learn to co exist and understand them. Who will it be??? John Murtha....Cindy Sheehan....Nancy Pelosi???
