Skip to comments.Al-Qaeda's Terrifying Vision of a Devastated America in the Wake of a Nuclear Attack
Posted on 05/29/2008 5:02:56 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Washington is laid to waste. The Capitol is a blackened, smoking ruin. The White House has been razed. Countless thousands are dead.
This is the apocalyptic scene terrorists hope to create if they ever get their hands on a nuclear bomb.
The computer-generated image below was posted on an Islamic extremists' website yesterday.
It appeared as rumours swept the Internet that the FBI was warning that an Al Qaeda video was about to be released urging militants to use weapons of mass destruction to attack the West.
The information was said to be coming from 'groups that monitor Islamic militant websites'.
The FBI was quick to point out that it had not issued any warning and that the video was not an official Al Qaeda release through its media arm, Al Sahab, but simply an ' amateur' collection of old footage spliced together and posted on the Internet.
U.S. analysts said a lot of effort had been put into the video - entitled Nuclear Jihad, The Ultimate Terror - with graphics, music, and clips of different leaders and groups.
The same expertise seems to have gone into creating this image of a devastated Washington.
Al Sahab puts out more than 80 'officially sanctioned' videos a year to keep up the propaganda on the West. And the Internet shows how easy it is to stir up militancy. One message with the Washington picture said: 'The next strike's in the heart of America. When? When? When? And How?'
Last night FBI sources said Al Qaeda was desperate to get its hands on a weapon of mass destruction, be it nuclear, chemical, or biological.
So far that is only a dream... or, as this picture suggests, a nightmare.
I think some similar photoshopped images of every Muslim capital would be in order.
And Obama wants to talk to this guys.
Still want to vote for the anti-American, anti-military, anti-defense Obama ????
Think real hard before you pull that lever....
We should post similar pictures of Mecca, Tehran, Damascus, etc. And let them know that we don’t exactly care who does it, those cities will go down if it happens.
Muslims are not Nuke proof. They don’t want to die either and it takes time to brainwash suicide troops or bombers.
This gives more reason for the thoughts by an American Airline Pilot:
This pilot ‘hit the nail’ right on the head in his open letter.
The paper stated today that some Muslim doctor is saying we are profiling him because he has been checked three times while getting on an airplane.
The following is a letter from a pilot. This well spoken man, who is a pilot with American Airlines, says what is in his heart, beautifully.... Read, absorb and pass this on.
‘YOU WORRY ME!’
By American Airlines Pilot - Captain John Maniscalco
I’ve been trying to say this since 911, but you worry me. I wish you didn’t. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don’t blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me.
I notice you because I can’t help it anymore.
People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don’t fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know that nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.
On September 11, nineteen ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country.
They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children’s mothers.
The Palestinians celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world. So, I notice you now. I don’t want to be worried. I don’t want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists But I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.
How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim-Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter these same good neighbors and children?
The events of September 11th changed the answer. It is not my responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.
I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America. Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car? Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation, that He will protect and prosper it? Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your Jihad’s? Are you thankful for the freedom that only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country? Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America ? If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it.
Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America. Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks because I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more sympathy. I am only interested in action. What will you do for America - our great country - at this time of crisis, at this time of war?
I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting ‘Allah Bless America ‘ I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.
The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities. You know them. You know where they are. Hand them over to us, now! But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals.
The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating. They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible before taking action. They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing ‘leaders’ like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.
If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good, and pure, and true, when your ‘leaders’ are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance? It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if huge numbers of the world’s Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose structure is built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.
We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us: Our rights under the greatest constitution in the world. I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family.
I am pleading with you to let me know. I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American.
But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance, and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand. Until then .
‘YOU WORRY ME!’
I totally agree with this sentiment. I hope you will forget all about the ‘political correctness’ mandate we’ve had rammed down our throats, and see if this doesn’t ring true in your heart and mind. For Canada, with all the multiculturism we’ve been told is so important....why should we not, as Canadians, expect that the millions of new people immigrating to our country will show their love for our country, their allegiance to our country, their willingness to obey the laws of our country, and acceptance that we are a Christian country? Just because they are able to enjoy exercising their own religion, they should not expect us to be ashamed of ours. They knew Canada was a Christian country when they came here. Why are we erasing Christianity because immigrants who are unwilling to adopt our way of life expect us to? There is just too much insanity in the world, and we have to start taking a stand.
I hope you will forward, so others will feel they are not alone if they are starting to feel the same.
THIS IS TOO GOOD TO JUST READ AND DELETE.... LET’S SATURATE THE USA & CANADA WITH THIS ONE!
And the liberal weenies ponder, “What did we do to make them so angry?”
I just saved that image as: “The Democrats Dream”
Beat me to it.
In spite of all the things I don’t like about McCain, this photo is enough of a reason to vote for him.
Nothing to be worried about. After Obama sits down and talks with them, Al Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas, and JAM will all lay down their weapons and we’ll finally have world peace.
Do they realize what every city on the Middle East would look like within a week? Mecca would be a smoking hole, Damascus, Tehran, Cairo, all gone!
and the world will suffer because there will be no more American teat to suckle at...
Uh, that’s a screenshot from the upcoming game Fallout 3.
“Muslims are not Nuke proof. They dont want to die either and it takes time to brainwash suicide troops or bombers””
I think you might want to think again. There is no Mutually Assured Destruction with these Islamofascists.
Now that really pisses me off.
A US response to such an attack would shake the world to its foundations, with Syria, Iran, Gaza, West Bank and Eastern Pakistan reduced to ashes.
Not under a President Obama. His response would be, "Let's chat..."
That will depend on who our President is. I just don’t see Hussein doing anything ordering such a response.
They only know how to destroy, not how to create.
Most of them already look like that.
At some point in time we’ll have to decide if wiping them off the face of the earth is worth having liberals play guilt trips on us for fifty to a hundred years.
Remember: “Duck and cover!”
Wherever it comes from , it looks like Muslim Jihadists love the picture. It’s their dream come true.
LOL Al-qaeda can’t even create their own material. Or we’ve been had.
Lol, I was looking at the site earlier today. Has been forever in coming.
Stupid Jihadist can’t even have a “Terrifying Vision of a Devastated America” without stealing it from us.
They may love the picture, but they are still too backwards to get Fallout 3 to run on their TSR-80’s that they have hooked up in Mom’s basement cave.
One result will be both Mecca and a number of hard line Moslem capitols will become tourist attractions. These places will glow in the dark and inspire considerable thought.
In a spasm of rage and fury, the Tridents emptied their launchers and the silos around Nebraska are empty. SLCM's finish the rest of the Arab World. Flights from as far away as Diego Garcia trundled their bombs to the preselected targets.
All seaports and oil terminals will probably not be usable for decades.
The UN, of course, was in urgent session when the weapon in the NY Harbor frieght terminal detonated, so was not available to complain.
We can dream, too.
God Bless the USA and God Bless George Bush. God Bless the next President of the USA.
Very nice post, G.
“I think some similar photoshopped images of every Muslim capital would be in order.”
That would be a waste of time...so much simpler to describe: picture a sea of glass, glowing with a greenish aura in the moonlight! Actually kinda picturesque. Tho’ I like your idea, if cartoons get their panties in a twist, imagine what a few photoshopped images of the Caliphate would do! Just a shame to mess up Dubai tho’...they’re actually turning that sandpit into an oasis!
A whole week...?
Not so fast, home-slice. Your grasp of Muslim "End Times" thought is rather shaky. Particularly in regard to the Shiite POV.
Stop me if this sounds crazy ... but then go look it up. The Shiites welcome Armageddon and the end of all living things on Earth. You see, infidel dog, this will give Allah a clean slate to rebuild a perfect Shi'a world ... somewhere.
No sweat to us Shiites, pal. We go straight to Paradise, where you infidels shall be our slaves for all eternity. Unworthy Muslims, too. Just to be fair about it. In those last days, when the 12th Imam pops out of the Holy Well, Allah the All Wise will make it all crystal clear to you.
The Shiite theological POV? Armageddon? Bring it on, Baby!
Wouldn’t do the worlds economies any good if that happened in New York, Paris, Bonn and ROME.. A brief thought about the implications of a “problem” in Rome.. You know just think about it for a minute... (shining glasses) (whistling)... See what I mean..
Uh, the picture looks like the D.C. area as it is today, but just outside of the Beltway. I didn’t hear of a nuke going off there. D.C. and Newark and Detroit; hell, they all look pretty much the same: Ruins.
I think we'd want to find out who built the weapon before we retaliated.
agreed; the only good thing about this would be it would take out all of the democratic congress and President. Lets hope if they succeed everyone is in town......
Awesome! Didn't know that...I loved fallout 1 & 2.
Thank you. It was from the heart and flew out my fingers.
They are all SO lucky to be alive after 1979, in my book, that they should bow a few extra times in gratitude, and often, that people less moderate and with less grandmotherly kindness than I have are not running the show here.
Yeah, the first two Fallout games were set on the West Coast, this one is set in DC and Northern Virginia I think.
