Taliban Vow Revenge

Tyler Durden's picture

And now, it is time for "happy nation" to be reintroduced to "police nation." From ABC.net: "Taliban leaders are warning of revenge attacks against the Pakistani government and foreign targets. "Now Pakistani rulers, president Zardari and the army will be our first targets. America will be our second target," Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), or Taliban Movement of Pakistan, said from an undisclosed location. Across the border in Afghanistan, president Hamid Karzai said bin Laden had paid the price for his actions. Mr Karzai said the killing showed that the Afghan insurgency was being led from training bases outside the country. He urged the Taliban to lay down their weapons and stop fighting. News of the killing of the Al Qaeda leader is still filtering across Afghanistan, where millions of people are illiterate or don't have access to radio and television. But many civilians are not expecting a reprieve from the violence across the country. The Taliban began its spring offensive yesterday, with a series of attacks, including a deadly blast by a 12 year old suicide bomber."

You want to wear a speedo? What do you have to hide, terrorist...? You're not a likely target for additional screening anyway, Tyler as you aren't a five year old girl.

The false flag terror attack shall be in Pakistan.

One less nucleur power to align with the NWO.

Cool, another escalation. These "terrorist" make a perfect enemy, you can't see them, don't know where they are, and you have to rely on the government for information. Trot out a dead one every now and again, and watch the people cheer.

German news mentioned mostly young americans celebrate the dead of osama. I guess thats because they are very naiv. Just imagine in 2001 you were 10-15 year old and that time you believed what you have been told by everyone. Now, 10 years later these *young* people are in their 20ies and they celebrate dead of osama. such a bullshit.

By the way: has anyone seen the movie "Tere bin laden" ?   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tere_Bin_Laden

It's scary, really.  I was watching the video of college aged kids celebrating like their sports team had just won a national championship.  We are programmed consumers with programmed rooting interests.  Same as it ever was, I suppose.

unky's picture

Exactly. I bet none of these kids would go out to celebrate once we finally abolish the Fed.

knowless's picture

the only ones that would are called anarchists and denied employment because of their avoidance of institutionalised debt purchases of credentials/criminal records which dissallow employment or renting property besides the ghetto. but yeah, the ones celebrating are fucking retarded.

Are these the same "kids" coming out of college in debt and jobless?

kridkrid's picture

We need to come up with something for them to do.  Who's on the dance card?

How about every college senior do a 6 month rotation in Afghanistan? That's education you can believe in!

knowless's picture

the whole bin laden thing is just washing the masses brains to reinstitute the draft once the real shit hits.

a bunch of people on NPR calling in to say the "military burden is shared unequally".. so forth. the average college student is a fucking retard, will be sacrificed in the trenches.

that six months will become a year, that year two. conscription is slavery.

I am VERY Happy the man who claimed responsibility (through his organization) for the attack on WTC (twice in 1998 and 2001), the Pentagon, and the bombing of US embassies in Africa, and who publicly and openly declared a private war against the US is dead.  Explain to me why I and any other American shouldn't be?

unky's picture

your goverment claims that bin laden claims something, be happy about whatever u want

strannick's picture

Bravau. Now thats a slogan I could chant!

barney frank just might endorse that.

"is that a plastic exposive in your speedo or are you just happy at the thought of being fondled?"

The upcoming false-flag attack will lead to a flight to safety aka US dollar and treasuries,  is that the plan they have?

Racer's picture

Great achievement that... 'kill' Bin liner and stir up the hornets nest

maximin thrax's picture

That's sort of the plan. You can A) wait and see which islamo-nut is going to carry out the next attack, or B) kill mass-murderer Osama and dissapear those who come to his funeral. You may not agree with that strategy, but plenty of supporters of the war on terror feel the fight is better incited over there than over here.

Seems like a lot of doublespeak from certain quarters - that on the one hand bin Laden is irrelevant and the war on terror is trumped-up, but on the other hand, by killing Osama, we're now to be concerned we've pissed off a bunch of people we're not supposed to be afraid of anyway.

Karzai seems to be the big loser in this. Almost at the moment he seemed to be bending to the will of the Taliban, he sees the Big O taken out. Now he sends a warning to the same Taliban to desist because he's more afraid of us than them, perhaps? Who's his friend now?

Harlequin001's picture

Funny how Bin Laden has done nothing for ten years yet the spending goes on. This way they can say they killed him whilst sending him home to Saudi with a nose job and zimmer frame and invent some other non event with exploding underwear to frighten all Americans to death.

Keep spending them dollars...

I dont think talibs have any shortage of scary looking, USA hating beard wearing man..

Yet they knew about some hillbilly burning a koran on youtube.  You can't make this shit up!

maximin thrax's picture

Have the clerics in those Afghan mosques that stoked the koran-burning riots and murders a month ago been handed over to the US yet? Maybe now's a good time to ask Karzai for either their heads or his. Never let a crisis go to waste.

I look just like a 12 year old girl while I'm wearing a speedo and will be unjustly targeted for additional searches. Not fair.

I really feel jipped this morning. At least Obama could of held a small photo release of Bin Laden (the man with 9 lives).

C'mon, even Ken Lay was given some decency.

Fact Bin Laden is died, we killed him, he deserved to die. He was My enemy, who would kill every American man, woman or child without blinking. The results of this action, are the results. Our enemies are still are enemies, they go to war without an excellent leader today. Do you think others of his group slept well last night? I think not!! Whatever comes, comes..bring it...

What say we declare war on the right country this time around?

Oh regional Indian's picture

Difficult. Unless the US finds a way to attack itself?
Or do you mean Israel? I'm a tad confused.



mark mchugh's picture

I'm a simpleton because I think the country most responsible for an attack is the country most of the attackers came from.

I know, crazy.

Zero Govt's picture

you have to ask if you begin to meddle and murder in a foreign land what impacts you have. My take on it is violence 'promotes' the thugs in those countries society to lead (see Viet Kong, IRA, Taliban, Al Q etc)... you reep what you sow

..maybe if America (and Europe before them) hadn't continued 'crusading' (rampaging) in far flung lands it would settle down. Minding your own fuking busiiness! Alternatively just don't let the murdrous dysfunctional sociopaths in your society lead your country

mark mchugh's picture

You make good points, but I don't see 911 through a "we deserved that" lens.

Quite simply, I'd have bombed the hometowns of the attackers and said, "your move."

Then I'd have put locks on cockpit doors and left it at that.

sangell's picture

Its possible al Qaeda has sleeper cells on standby in the US ready and able to carry out a major attack but I doubt it. More likely is the lone wolf acolyte type attack of the sort that happened at Ft. Hood.

Got to be lots of broken hearted Jihadists ready to avenge OBL.

Harlequin001's picture

Have you ever heard of the term, 'Agent Provocateur'?

With all those tax dollars you hand over to the US government each year do you have any idea how difficult is is to maintain a sleeper cell for ten years or more? Fact is that if your government needs to frighten you they only need someone to blame...

firstdivision's picture

This is nothing that a carpet bombing or small yield nuke cannot handle.  Just ignore the collateral damage and all is well.

Hephasteus's picture

How quaint. US "kills" osama. And now alCIAda is going to attack pakistan a targe of USA takeover. Next they'll attack libya for making it too easy for the US to get it's hands on it's light sweet crude.

anyone who thinks this is even remotely true story is fit to serve in this gov or better yet work for end of global warming or the ultimate community organizer for acorn..1984 was half right.

Perhaps 1984 was ALL right, it's all here, happening, in every sphere. Cell phones, TV, Hollywood, Internet Porn... game over for the plebs, ne?

This whole bin Laden nonsense is nothing more than statist manipulation and theatre for the morons.

It serves so many purposes.  It has taken down commodities, maybe only for a 12 hour period but it could force them down a bit longer.  This could lower gas prices, giving Obama a boost in the polls.  Silver and gold being down is obviously good for the empire.  It saves JPM and the COMEX more time, and allows central banks to accumulate more physical on the cheap if they choose. 

Now, after the birth certificate thing, Obama is "on a roll" and has "finally brought America together."  Give me a fucking break. 

This also will serve to discredit Ron Paul in the statist's minds come 2012.  Since Ron wants to end the "war on terra" he can easily be singled out as a "wack job" who would have never caught Osama, and plus "we haven't been hit since 9/11, so it's working" (whatever that means.) 

Oh yeah, the markets are also up, helping further "validate" QE2 and the Fed. 

The people out in the streets cheering are fucking insane.  They actually believe "justice has prevailed" even though thousands more innocent foreigners have died, and will die, because of 9/11 and our reaction to it.  Look, Osama was an evil bastard, but he really is nothing compared to Bush, Clinton, Obama, Greenspan, Bernanke, Geithner, etc etc.  The empire has destroyed millions (billions?) of lives, stealing from them on the sly, inflating their wealth away, and outright killing foreigners with impunity.  9/11 was a terrible day, and I really do feel for the innocent lives lost that day, but the worst part by far is the further advancement of the statists and their agenda.  Obama/Bush/Clinton/The Fed etc are the true enemies that need to be brought to "justice" although people wouldn't cheer if we ended the Fed, they would probably ask each other what the fuck the Fed is and go about their day. 

Oh...and "blowback, bitchez"
