Darth Vader threatens London & Washington again

Al Qaeda's number two man, Ayman Al-Zawahiri issued a new videotape today, which (of course) was aired by Al Jazeera.

In the tape, Zawahiri promised more attacks on the UK and the US.

Tensions in London were already high, two weeks to the day after the last attempted attacks, and four weeks to the day after the deadly July 7 bombings.

"What you have seen in New York, Washington and Afghanistan are only the initial losses," Zawahiri said in a videotape broadcast by al-Jazeera, the Arabic language satellite channel. "If you [the United States] continue the same hostile policies, you will see something that will make you forget the horrors of Vietnam," Zawahiri threatened in the videotape, a Kalashnikov propped against his right shoulder.

Repeatedly pointing a finger for emphasis, the bearded, turbaned Zawahiri, an Egyptian-born doctor and Osama bin Laden's top deputy, said that British Prime Minister Tony Blair shouldered the blame for the July 7 attacks in London that killed 56 people, including four suicide bombers. The tape was released exactly four weeks after the deadly attacks on London's transportation system.

President Bush, at his ranch in Crawford, TX, said that Zawahiri's comments proove that Iraq is part of the war on terror and that the nation is still at war.

Say what you want about al-Qaeda, but they're holding the biggest nation on earth by its balls. How a bunch of random guys with AK-47s pulled that one off is amazing...
