Al Qaeda Endorses John McCain for President

An al Qaeda website wants John McCain to be our next president. Their reasoning is that he's “impetuous” and would be more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words McCain will keep us in the hole we’re already in by continuing to dig and dig and dig.

So let’s see, McCain has the endorsement of Blackwater, Halliburton, the Religious Right, the KKK, the Bush Crime Family and al Qaeda.

Birds of a feather…

And don't forget the oil companies.

Boy, talk about your axis of evil!

McCain also has the endorsement of war criminal Henry Kissinger, something to be proud of for sure.....

J, Lew: Yup, the oil companies, Kissinger -- McCain's really attracting the winners here.

The web site al-Hesbah seems to be making waves to get under the skin of McCain after he talked about Hamas and it's support for Obama.

I recall how Russia was broke financially with its fight in Afghanistan while their economy was going down the drain...sounds familiar?

I am led to belive that al-Qaeda wants nothing more than for McCain to become President and waste money and more of our troops fighting and spending money on a very big mistake.

We really need to wake up and get rid of the McCains in public office, before we are doomed.

It's just OBL's way of saying, "Bring it on!"

Evidently, McCain wasn't paying attention when the Mujahadeen ground the Red Army down to a bloody, demoralized pulp in Afghanistan, in the 1980's. Or maybe he figures if that was good enough for Russian troops, it's good enough for our troops.

But what he and the rest of the "stay-the-course," "make our own reality," crackpot crusaders had better reckon with is that the Soviets' Afghanistan quagmire played a major role in bringing the USSR down.

Let's Talk: Yes, it sounds very familiar. The parallels between the Soviet Union's collapse after spending too much on the military and being quagmired in Afghanistan, and our own current meltdown -- it should be obvious to most people. Everybody except McCain and the few followers he has left.

SW: McCain clearly doesn't get the obvious connection between what happened to Russian troops in Afghanistan, and what our own troops are facing now. From what I understand, Russia's invasion of Afghanistan not only led to the collapse of the USSR; it begat the militant Islamic worldwide terrorist movement -- a large part of it anyway.

Between that and the Alaska Independence Party, the McCain/Palin ticket is about as anti-American as they get. Where's Minnesota congresswoman cuntface-er, I mean Bachman now?

It's a SAD day when Al Qaeda understands more about our economy than most Americans, and knows very well these wars will certainly bankrupt our country. Is McCain really that clueless or is this a huge power trip?

Everyone knows the militant Islamic worldwide terrorist movement was conceived, planned and carried out by one James Earl Carter, Jr. and this is precisely why we need a gung-ho, devil-may-care, loose cannon in the White House so he can send Blackwater, Halliburton, the Religious Right, the KKK, the Bush Crime Family and al-Qaeda over there to defeat al-Qaeda!

Sorry, got my wingnut talking points and leftwing fantasies mixed up.

Bu$hCo has been good to Al Qaeda. Now...they're just returning the favor to the annointed one.

I've got visions of Palin, Kissinger, and Bin Ladin spending eternity is some Sarte-ian hell with Kissinger droning on about the virtues of realpolitik, Bin Ladin rolling his eyes, and Palin interspersing the conversation with you-betchas.

Funded by the Saudis, and trained by US. This should never be forgotten.

We created the Taliban. We created al-Qaeda.

Carlos: I guess it’s only anti-American when Democrats criticize the government. It’s part of that “do as I say not as I do” motto that drives Republicans.

Kate: I think McCain really is that clueless.

Randal: That’s OK, the more talking points the better.

Kvatch: Yup, they make a great team.

Karlo: Nice vision. That’s certainly the place for the 3 of them.

Paul: I heard that Manson thinks McCain is too crazy and deluded.

McCain is also endorsed by such intellectual heavyweights as Anne Coulter.

Bush also got Al-Qaeda's endorsement. It just never made the press.

I knew that because I've been to the Middle East, and I actually talk to people. When I asked Wahhabists and extremists who they favored, they didn't necessarily know, they would answer with a question:

-Who will continue the war in Iraq?

-Bush.

-Then I want Bush to win.

Says everything that needs to be said.

Snave: Yup, all the rightwing intellectuals (how's that for an oxymoron) are for McCain.

Libhom: I liked a few parts of Texas, but some parts of it are hell on earth.

Chemist: That pretty much sums it up. Too bad our "media" didn't think it was newsworthy. I try to check out international sites fairly often (I have al-Jazeera and BBC linked) so I get something besides America's pisspoor news reporting.

No surprise. Al Queda loves Bush. Thanks to him, their membership flourished and they managed to gain a lot of ground. Sure it got tougher to hit targets stateside, but everywhere else was fair game and once Saddam was gone, Iraq was an open field. McSame would continue with the same generousity of spirit.

I bet Osama dislikes Blacks, so he dislikes Barack--just a hunch. I don't think Al Queda fear either candidate.

Jolly Roger is right. I'm studying Afghanistan right now. We funded the Taliban. Amazing.

Enemy: Yeah, that would explain a lot. Since I spent some time in Afghanistan in the '70s, I always followed news from there. In the mid-'90s (after the Russians were driven out) the country was being torn apart by feuding warlords. And just out of the blue, there were all these news reports of a group called the Taliban who were traveling around the country, bringing peace to all these wartorn regions. The Taliban were invariably described as "students" or "religious students." I had these images of a group of choir boys walking unarmed through gangs of thugs and guerrillas, "persuading" them to stop fighting.

Who knew that a few years later the Taliban would be the most brutal overlords since the Spanish Inquisition. I couldn't imagine how American news sources could be so clueless. It makes sense that we created them, or at least knew about them and approved.
