First of all, show me a guy that has been to jail or prison (regardless of the reason) who talked about how wonderful the conditions were.
"Oh, it was just wonderful. The guards were so sweet, the food was to die for, the beds were soooo comfortable."
I mean, come on. Even when you get pulled over and issued a ticket, do you tell your friends how nice the officer was?
Earth to common sense. Do you copy? Over.
Secondly, if I were the leader of Iran or Syria, I would *NOT* want Osama to go on the rampage again.
Those guys live under pretty nice conditions. Have they given any thought to how it would be to live in a cave or an underground compartment? Always
being on the run from the great satan?
As much as they most likely dislike America, if I were them and I liked my way of life, I would be proactively involved in shutting down Osama!
On the flip side, if I were Osama, I would have told the leaders of Afganistan, Iraq, and Iran what I was about to do.
"I've been living in caves for awhile. Doesn't bother me. If the idea bothers you, go to the other Arabian nations. Dont give them specifics but
tell them that America is about to forget about Pearl Harbor. Tell them the Americans will come. They will invade all of your countries one by one
just like Hitler did in WWII. Instead of shouting "Death to America" from your mansion, you'll be shouting it from a cave. You have been
screaming jihad against the great satan for decades. The time is now. Join the Arabian alliance and let the Muslims resist the Americans united as
one great force. Or shout nothing but words and wait for the Americans to humiliate you."
Really, what choice would the former Persia have?
Sure, the word of a coming attack would reach the White House. In fact, word did reach the White House. It didnt change anything. Word reached the
powers that be about Pearl Harbor and they werent anxious to stop that attack either.
It's to late for them to organize now. Osama has proven he can weather the storm; he doesnt need their support. But they sure need each other.
Take the Native Americans as a prime example.
They were outgunned by the Europeans but if they would have organized, their numbers alone, even with just bows and arrows, would have sent most of
the Europeans back as a corpse without even the comfort of a timber box (because of their hasty retreat).
However, their hate for each other assured their destruction.
If the middle east doesnt band together and fight as one, their way of life WILL end (which, IMO, wouldnt be a bad thing).
When they lose to America, their leaders will be living in caves and under ground compartments, their oil fields will be at the mercy of the the US
and NATO, and their women will be voting, driving, and removing their veils.
Another 911 style attack on America? Or an attack that makes 911 look like a minor incident? And you can forget about the middle east maintaining
their Islamic independence.
Want to know the difference between Iraqis kissing the boots of American soldiers (and surrendering to the foreign press) and Iraqis car-bombing their
In the first Gulf War, the US had 100,000 more troops over there and a united coalition. And "turkey shoot"ing the enemy was permissible. So was
retaining POWs. How many POWs did we have in the first Gulf War? About 30,000? You want horrible conditions? Start there!
Bomb, bomb New York? Knock yourself out, brother. Literally.
