    That's not what he says. Sure, he says to embrace Islam, but that the reason we haven't won the war is:

    My interpretation is IMHO, our thirst for oil is why we are a big bunch of bullies.

    Take 2 cents/gallon of tax revenue and stash it in a fund to be used for the following subsidy programs:

    GOV should subsidize heavy investment into emerging renewable-energy technologies. (exotic high-yield solar, wind, biomass, improved fuel-cell)

    Then they should subsidize the purchase of electric cars like THESE and see how that affects our oil-driven economy. :D

    I think I'll wait for the widescreen version. You always get ripped off getting it as soon as it comes out.

    Perhaps because we were chasing the wrong guy Saddam in the wrong country Iraq. BushCo sucks.

    That was my read, too. We can get the pirated version pretty quickly here. Already found Bourne Ultimatum and Die Hard 4. Is that germane, or OT?

    threats to America? How many Americans (both civilians and troops) have died as a direct result of terrorism or war since 2001? How many Iraqis (only innocent civilians) have died because of the US Troops bombing the s*** out of the country?

    Better still, I want to know how many "Terrorists" have been killed. I think a number for that would be hard to find, as the media will sensationalise any crap given to it by the government.

    Do you actually know what bin Laden has done? Why do you want the man dead?

    I suspect killing him would do nothing. If Al Qaeda has a political structure anything like America's, bin Laden will be replaced by another man, who could potentially be worse than bin Laden. You can't get rid of terrorists from the top down; there has to be major change before terrorism is gone. And that doesn't mean bombing countries; if I were a terrorist, that'd just get me even more p***ed at America.

    I want one :D

    Yeah, but ObL will give us a $100 rebate for early adopters :p

    I'm surprised, with all the time we're giving him, that he's not releasing it on HD and Blu-Ray.

    I'm probably stating the obvious but if people didn't get excited and salivate every time a new Bin laden video was released or *rumoured* to be released, then he wouldn't be such a problem. He'd immediately lose a lot of his power and influence if the tapes were never shown again. But I suppose you have to weight that up with what's entertaining.

    Actually he teamed up with Apple to offer it exclusively on iTunes.

    Corrected ;)

    He doesn't have to do anything. We're perfectly capable of screwing ourselves up thankyouverymuch. Wondering if that wasn't Bush's plan all along, he's done such a spectacular job of it.

    I doubt it will have the same effect it once did. Used to scared us. Now it just reminds us that Bush still hasn't caught him because we've been too busy in Iraq. How sad is it that we've become angrier at our own leader's response to him (or lack thereof) than to the perpetrator himself. Just another of a long line of balls this administration has dropped.

    Is that a message to the awaiting sleeper cells?

    Why dont you go join the army then, maybe you can give them a hand to find him (if he exists at all). Be a hero, Bush would be so proud of you!

    Am I the only one who found this whole thing amusing? They hate western culture, but they released a short preview, stating the entire thing would be released on 9/11, then eventually, the entire thing leaked out onto the internet before release date. Doesn't this sound a bit like what happens here with movies? The only thing they were missing was the myspace page to go with it :D

    I really thought the guy was dead; I'm trying to figure out how this tape could've been fabricated.

    That's it! You're brilliant!!

    See, here's how this is gonna work:

    1. Bush has the CIA leak false evidence that the video was released early by bootleggers based out of China. We tell them that these Chinese pirates are making a fortune selling this thing, and that the Chinese government just looks the other way.
    2. OBL gets pissed at the infidel Chinese entrepreneurs and the Chinese government and declares war on them.
    3. We blow up some meaningless, empty building in Beijing and tell the Chinese that our intelligence indicates that OBL did it.
    4. The Chinese sent a million troops to the middle east to fight terrorism.
    5. We're off the hook.

    What would I do if I captured Bin Laden? I'd drug him with sodium pentithol and then take him to one of those spas that do the full body wax. :p
