While cynical bastards rush us into war against Iraq to capture more oil and furthur inflate the bank balances of corporate CEO's, Bin Laden is still alive and posing a threat. How about protecting the people you were elected to "serve"?
It is him. The man on the tape is Bin Laden. He is alive. It took only a brief flurry of phone calls to the Middle East and south-west Asia for the most impeccable sources to confirm that Osama bin Laden is alive and that it was his gravelly voice that threatens the West in the short monologue first transmitted by the Arab Al-Jazeera television channel.
So the Saudi billionaire, the man in the cave, the "Evil One", the bearded, ascetic man whom the greatest army on earth has sought in vain, is with us still. It's the real McCoy.
As usual, "US intelligence" ? the heroes of 11 September who heard about Arabs learning to fly but didn't quite manage to tell us in time ? came up with rubbish for the American media. It may be him. It's probably him. The gravelly voice may mean he's been hurt.
He is speaking fast because he could have been wounded by the Americans.
The US was finally forced to acknowledge yesterday that the man some of them had claimed to be dead was still very much in the land of the living ? and uttering the kind of threat that fulfils the worst nightmares of Western leaders. "Just like you kill us, we will kill you," he said.
When he was recorded, bin Laden was not talking into a tape-recorder. He was talking into a telephone. The man on the other end of the line ? quite possibly in Pakistan ? held the recorder. Bin Laden may not have been in the same city as the man with the recorder. He may well not have been in the same country.
Osama bin Laden always speaks slowly. His voice is rapid, and the reason for this is apparently quite simple: the recorder's battery was low. When replayed by Al-Jazeera at proper speed, the voice goes up an octave.
Bin Laden always loathed Saddam Hussein. He hated the Iraqi leader's un-Islamic behaviour, his secularism, his use of religion to encourage loyalty to a Baath party that was co-founded by a Christian. America's attempt to link al-Qa'ida to the Baghdad regime has always been one of the most preposterous of Washington's claims. Bin Laden used to tell me how much he hated Saddam. So his two references to "the sons of Iraq" are intriguing. He makes no mention of the Baghdad government or of Saddam. But with UN sanctions still killing thousands of children ? and with Iraq the target of a probable American invasion ? he cannot possibly ignore it. So he talks about "Iraq's children" and about "our sons in Iraq", indicating Arab Muslim men who happened to be Iraqi, rather than Iraqis. But not Saddam. It's not difficult to see how the US administration may try to use these two references to make another false link between Baghdad and al-Qa'ida, but Bin Laden ? who is intelligent enough to be able to predict this ? clearly felt that an expression of sympathy for the Arabs of Iraq outweighed any misuse Washington could make of his remarks. This has to come under the label of speculation (although near certainty might be nearer the mark).
I think its part of a distraction/and economic boost ploy. Who are they gonna go after when we get the shit blown out of us again? Who is the one who has attacked us in the past and will most certainly do it again? NOt Saddam
