Taliban leader says attacks were to avenge US 'cruelty'
AFP | 9/25/01

ISLAMABAD, Sept 25 (AFP) -

The attacks on the United States were to avenge US "cruelty" toward Muslim countries, the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar said Tuesday in a message to the American people.

"The American people must know that the sad events that took place recently were the result of their government's wrong policies," he said in the message, delivered through Pakistan-based private news agency, the Afghan Islamic Press.

"Your government is perpetrating all sorts of atrocities in Muslim countries. Instead of supporting your government's policies you should urge your government to reconsider their wrong and cruel policies," he said.

"The recent sad event in America was the result of these cruel policies and was meant to avenge this cruelty," he said, without claiming to know who was responsible.

Omar again defended alleged terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, named by the United States as the prime suspect for the September 11 attacks.

He reiterated that bin Laden, the Saudi-born dissident who has been living under Taliban protection in Afghanistan since 1996, was incapable of planning the sort of sophisticated suicide hijackings which levelled the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon two weeks ago.

"You must think of where the attack took place and who was behind it, but Afghanistan is being made the target and preparations are being made to attack Afghanistan," he said.

"What will be the consequences?

"You accept all just or unjust statements from your government but why can't you judge whether Osama bin Laden is involved in this? Can he do this in America?

"It is better for you to consider this seriously and act with wisdom."

Does anyone besides me think that OBL's people already have planned and set up the next attack, and are just waiting for Afghanistan to be bombed before implementing it? That way they can make the claim that since OBL wasn't behind the WTC attacks, they are now merely defending themselves.

Seriously, these guys are too much. They claim to know the exact motive behind the attack, but not who did it.

The future sad event in Afghanistan is the result of cruel Taliban policies and is meant to kill you and your cowardly followers.

I do, and I think the current FBI/JTF operation needs to develop a little more before we go.

Then the rest of the article says absolutely nothing about these "atrocites." I wonder why.

These words of wisdom would've been best passed on to bin Laden in early September.

    It seems logical to conclude that, if the Taliban leadership is explaining the motives for the attack, then the Taliban leadership was actively participating in the attack.

  Now, I must admit that I don't know Afghanistan; is the "Taliban leadership" distinct from the "government of Afghanistan", and if it's distinct, who is the real Afg. government and what are they saying/doing?? If there is no difference between the Taliban and the government, why are we hesitating to bring them into the Atomic Age?

...no quarter.

Yeah, our boys and the SAS should give the bastards as much mercy as the pigs gave to those poor flight attendants who throats were cut.

Terminate with extreme prejudice!

In the immortal words of a true American patriot, Let's ROLL!

Some people specify the type of funeral service they want, others specify the writing on their tombstone. It seems Mullah Omar is in the latter camp.

Maybe so, but wait 'til you see your first (and last) fuel air bomb...

He reiterated that bin Laden, the Saudi-born dissident who has been living under Taliban protection in Afghanistan since 1996, was incapable of planning the sort of sophisticated suicide hijackings which levelled the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon two weeks ago.

Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar went on to say that Bin Laden is such a dumba$$, that he could not pour pi$$ out of a boot, even if the instructions were written on the heel. "And did I mention again that Bin Laden is missing, hmm, did I? Well, he is! He's really, really, really, missing." "Omar went on to say that "Bin Laden is missing, you know. We really don't know where he is, because he's missing!"

On a more serious note, the United States was put on notice that Bin Laden and the Taliban have a secret fleet of submarines, which at this very minute could be patrolling waters just off the coast of the U.S. "Do not trifle with these craft, they are the most modern, technologically advanced craft available, and include luxuries for the crew such as screen doors and sun roofs," he stated.

"We have not neglected armaments on these craft either," he went on to say. "These craft are bristling with .16 inch flintlock guns," Omar said proudly. "And for long range warfare, they utilize the latest, state of the art, deck mounted trebuchets," he beamed.

"Let me go on record as saying that the U.S. and coalition forces will meet their doom at the hands of our fierce fighting force, which we refer to as "fierce fighting force." "Our soldiers possess the highest moral for the upcoming conflict, due to their daily training, consisting of chanting "We are a fierce fighting force! Yes, we really are!"

When contacted for comment on this stunning information, a spokesman at Janes Defence Weekly grimly stated "Yes, the information is true." "We have recently discovered the theft of many strategic items from the "Junkyard Wars" supply depot."

"All signs point to the ever nearing conflict as being a turkey shoot." "It appears that the Taliban may be completely obliterated from existence."

In the States, an ever increasing chant of "Let's Roll!" is becoming deafening, and American troops have had to be restrained from showing how anxious and ready they are to kick some major a$$.

Let's Roll!

Does that cruelty include $100,000,000 of foreign aid to Afghanistan?

These "men" are surly the embodiment of the phrase "If at first you don't succeed, try try again." Nothing but bullsh!t flows from their forked tongues and they are just hoping that something will stick.
"We won't give Osama up."
"We don't know where he is."
"What if we just kind of let him slip out of the country?"
"Israel did it."
"America did it."
"The whole world did it."
"We know nothing about the attacks."
"The reason the attacks happened was..."
SPEW!
SPEW!
SPEW!

Hmmmm? Since he is telling Americans just WHY this act of cowardly animals was instigated, he must be a direct link to these atroscities:

Are they now implying that maybe THEY did it?

Is he making a CONFESSION?

Sounds like it to me!

GO GET EM GUYS!!!!!

Any Muslim who doesn't "turn in" his "ex-wife's second cousin's uncle" who MAY be a "Collaborator," MAY be guilty of "Harboring a Terrorist," & subject to treatment as a "Terrorist Collaborator!"

American & "Western" Muslims NEED to get a FIRM GRIP on Those who use their ethnic & religious "fronts" to plot the Murder of Americans (INCLUDING American Muslims)!

SOME of these psychopaths hide within the Muslim & Arab & "MiddleEastern" communities in America. Most Americans understand the "Dilemma" faced by Americans in these Communities.

NEVERTHELESS, Americans need to expose these "Sleepers" to save the lives of MANY others.

The MOST Patriotic Act Arab-& "Muslim" Americans could NOW perform is to EXPOSE these "Phoneys," & SAVE the lives of MANY of their fellow Americans!
