A Turning Tide Sinks Many Weasels

October 26, 2007

The US (and Iraqi) victories in Iraq expose anti-Americans worldwide, including bin Laden, the Dems, and the Mullahs.

Bin Laden (my emphasis):

A clearer picture of Osama bin Laden’s view on the state of jihad in Iraq emerges after the release of the full transcript of Osama bin Laden’s latest audiotape. Not only does bin Laden admit errors in the Iraqi leader’s ability to unite the tribes and Sunni insurgent groups, he views the situation in Iraq as dire for al Qaeda.

Bin Laden accuses his foot soldier of “negligence” for failing to properly employ IEDs, laments the unwillingness of Iraqis who do not wish to attack their brothers in the police and army, and closes his statement by saying “the darkness [in Iraq] has become pitch black.”

…He is also concerned about the infiltration of Iraqi and American spies.

In Ramadi, “the city that al Qaeda leaders once declared the seat of a new Islamic caliphate and capital of the Iraqi insurgency,” the Anbar Awakening held a march honoring Sheik Sattar Abu Risha, the leader of the movement who was slain by al Qaeda 40 days ago…There were no attacks on the procession.

“Al-Qaeda never wanted to see the sons of Anbar to unite and form security forces. Now I think we have broken their back by building the police and security force,” said Sheik Ahmed Abu Risha, the brother of Sattar who succeeded him as the leader of the Anbar Awakening. “Let them come forward and show their faces…. Let them come out, we will fight them.”

Clinton now has to face the consequences of calling the architect of this victory a liar. And the Mullahs can reasonably expect to be on the wrong end of this next year (my emphasis):

PALMDALE, Calif., July 19, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) — The U.S. Air Force’s B-2 stealth bomber would be able to attack and destroy an expanded set of hardened, deeply buried military targets using a new 30,000 pound-class penetrator weapon that Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) has begun integrating on the aircraft.


The company is doing the work under a seven-month, $2.5 million contract awarded June 1 by the Air Force’s Aeronautical Systems Center, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio.

The B-2 carries two of these weapons. They’re GPS guided, and can penetrate 200 feet of reinforced concrete or 130 feet of moderately hard rock, making a nasty mess of centrifuges, hex plants etc.

Seven months from July is January 2008.
