Oh, and while we're talking about Canada, AQ says they're next...

Al Qaeda, by way of a spokesman (spokesman? Next they'll have a PR agency!), Khalid Khawaja, a friend of Osama bin Laden, says that our northern neighbor is a "selfish" nation committing "terrorism" against Muslims around the world.

"It is very simple," he said. "As Bush says, either you are a friend or you are an enemy. So if you are not my friend, you are our enemy. So it is very simple. When you are supporting the enemy [the United States] then you are a target."

"Look at these Canadians. They have millions and millions of dollars to fight against Muslims, to send their troops, to send their weapons, and all of them put together, they have objections to giving treatment to this 14 year-old-boy who has been a victim of your terrorism."

The 14 year-old is the son of an Al Qaeda terrorist who set off a huge uproar when he came to Toronto for treatment of paralysis caused by a shot during his father's shootout with Pakistani police last year. His "loving" daddy was killed in that exchange.

Many Canadians were against offering medical help to the boy, who is, like his late father, a Canadian citizen.

"You have all the money to kill the people, you have all the billions of dollars to make the people slaves, you have billions of dollars to torture the people, you have billions of dollars to put up in the media to create false enemies and you have no money to give treatment to one of your victims. So what treatment do you deserve?

"Your civilization is selfish and self-centred. Just you want to live and enjoy yourselves and that is all, you don't give."

So, if we give them everything we've got, then they'll stop trying to kill us? Excuse me if I find that "leap of logic" hard to believe.

The radical Islamists have but one goal. That all of us in the Western World die horribly.

They tried to distance themselves from the US. They denounced invading Iraq and have tried maintain a neutral stance.

Well, as MK said: "The radical Islamists have but one goal. That all of us in the Western World die horribly."

Maybe now they'll realize that staying out of the fight against terrorism is easier said than done.

Of it will all be Bush's fault though.

'Why couldn't he keep his mouth shut? Now they are attacking Canada and it's all because of Bush's speech'

No - they couldn't possibly want us all to die! They're NIIIIICE terrorists! If we just leave them alone, they'll go 'way.

Especially if we go out of our way and do nice things! Like go to Iraq to rebuild their communications towers!

Oh, wait. They cut that guy's head off, didn't they?

Well. Hmph.
