    You really are stupid, aren't you?

    They want to claim it because they want people to view them as a threat. It's pretty basic, really. They are telling you they hate all people who are not themselves.

    You go ahead and think they have some other, higher, rationale, but in the end, that's all it comes down to.

    I noticed this on Ansar al-Mujahideen. Specifically, Qari Hussayn Mehsud of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for the failed attack. A video statement was posted to Youtube, but was quickly and suspiciously removed due to "terms of use violations." I'll post updates to this thread as my source receives them.

    It's amazing what passes as "news" anymore. We've got an unconfirmed statement from an unknown website and a waxed youtube vid speaking of an attack that never happened.

    It's like a double hit of acid without an ounce of the fun.

    True, but keep in mind that the vast majority of these claims of responsibility begin on the internet. Web forums are a major medium of communication for al-Qa'idah and its associates and even the English-speaking forums receive these updates far before the MSM.

    The stated reason for the attacks was the "martyrdom of Abu 'Umar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri," who were both agents of al-Qa'idah in Iraq. Whether or not any of this is true remains to be seen.

    Does it make any sense to assume things are true because they get posted on the net?

    If an intelligent thought ever invades your brain Frankie I hope you are as willing to share it as you are generous with the steaming liquid crap that is holding its place.
