The Islamic Nation that was able to dismiss and destroy the previous evil Empires like yourself; the Nation that rejects your attacks, wishes to remove your evils, and is prepared to fight you. You are well aware that the Islamic Nation, from the very core of its soul, despises your haughtiness and arrogance.
If the Americans refuse to listen to our advice and the goodness, guidance and righteousness that we call them to, then be aware that you will lose this Crusade Bush began (we have), just like the other previous Crusades in which you were humiliated by the hands of the Mujahideen (they did), fleeing to your home in great silence and disgrace (in the process of happening). If the Americans do not respond, then their fate will be that of the Soviets who fled from Afghanistan to deal with their military defeat, political breakup (currently happening), ideological downfall (depends on who is asked), and economic bankruptcy (Nat'l Debt in 9/2001 was 5.8 Trillion. Check).
This is our message to the Americans, as an answer to theirs. Do they now know why we fight them and over which form of ignorance, by the permission of Allah, we shall be victorious?

America has an even greater presence over the Earth.
Oh, he is dead. The only question is whether he died in 2002 or whether he died by Navy SEALs in Pakistan. He is dead.
He sparked and led an ideal and movement which has bloomed into an international fighting Jihad now running on many fronts. Bleeding the treasure and resources of the forces being fought seems to be a common theme. Relatively small hits cost 1st world nations billions in response and over-reaction. Then, done over and over as it has been.
That does not account for the 6 trillion in national debt in the month the war began to over 17 trillion today. Over 11 trillion dollars or over 2x's what it took the nation it's history to build, racked up over the course of this one war.
I have no sympathy to the terrorists.
so the lessons that may scream to be learned so a repeat does not come again seem lost. The world is a place now more likely to see something trigger it all over again. It's a bad time for leaders to be obtuse.
You measure success by might?
What has the USA sacrificed?
You have given up many of the values your country was built on
TSA who molest old ladies and people in wheel chairs.
Militrized police that shot first and ask queastion later
Detension without trial
Huge expansion of the CIA/NSA ect Larger and more numourus federal agencys
Cooperations getting fat off war profiteering
Well a world empire and shiny military is no use if your countrys rotting at the core and tyranny is sweeping over.
Bin Laden never claimed. Responsibility for 9/11
the Taliban said they would hand him over after seeing proof he was involved in it
who ever wrote that letter wrote it knowing that was their goals and I guaranty it was an American that wrote that letter
government bennifit ed from 9/11
So a war was waged, and of course both sides get damaged. I believe this is how most wars work. But in the end one side wins.
If causing us to lose qualified as victory,
which is precisely what he was a part for causing with the Soviets
I can't stay around to pursue this in the depth I would love to. My online time is cramped ATM. Primitive, is another apt term.
I think history leaves no question in saying Afghanistan took a toll far beyond a cost in Rubles or equipment. They took it worse than we did in ours by the sheer brutality and total war both sides fell into in the 80's.
It's earned the name by blood of 4 Super Power nations for how each was seen
there wasting there taxes away to protect themselves againts a boogy man, you have more chance to get hit by lightning than dying from a terrorist attack.
I think that's been around a liiiiittle longer than the war on terror
I totally agree that that's bad
But it does not apply to American citizens
That would happen regardless of the War on Terror
Hey at least the corporations don't have their own private armies anymore right?
