The “infidels” are being threatened again. Fugitive Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar has used the holiest Muslim holiday of the year to warn that his men will intensify their fighting in Afghanistan to “surprising” levels to drive out foreign infidels.
Doncha just love the adjective al-Reuters selects to describe a jihadist-cut-throat? A “fugitive,” much like you would describe a bank robber on the run or Wesley Snipes hiding from the IRS.
That aside, we’ve seen this before. Some point to Osama’s tape released just before the ’04 election as the reason Bush was re-elected. Of course some of the same moonbats believe the tape was produced in some secret studio under the White House.
“I am confident the fighting will be a surprise for many,” Omar said. I doubt it will surprise the U.S. and NATO forces on the ground. I’m just as sure they are all chomping at the bit waiting from them to come out of hiding.
Every time the Taliban pop out of a cave the kill ratio is on the order of 20 to 1 in favor of NATO.
In the words of an erstwhile presidentail candidate, “Bring it on!”
