I've long wondered if Bin Laden didn't understand our hubris far better than most of us USAmericans, and so played the USAmerican public and politicians much like he did those in the USSR. He and his mujahedeen assisted in the USSR's suicide, and I fear perhaps they has done the same for us, all with the unwitting assistance of the kleptocrat neocons.
In November 2004, UBL outlined what victory would look like and how it would be achieved."We are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy. Allah willing, and nothing is too great for Allah,"
Now that the game is over it is time to ask the politicians what they think of UBL's prophetic message in November 2004.
