    I just got off a conference call held by the McCain campaign to deny that Al Qaeda, contrary to reports in the AP and the Washington Post, is rooting for their man. To describe the call as panicked would be an understatement.

    What was absent from the call, oddly enough, was any discussion about why Al Qaeda might want McCain to win. And there the case is simple enough.

    Al Qaeda prefers an indefinite U.S. occupation of Iraq and a bellicose U.S. all across the Muslim world to radicalize Muslims to its terrorist cause and drain the U.S. of its financial wealth — what Osama bin Laden calls his “bleed to bankruptcy” strategy. Hence, the reason why, as the CIA eventually concluded, Bin Laden tried to help George W. Bush’s reelection in 2004 by releasing a late-October tape. McCain pledges basic continuity with Bush on the Iraq war. As Scheunemann put it, “John McCain will spend what it takes to win.”

    Indeed. Sad to say, Bin Ladin has been outsmarting our poor Chimp at every turn.

    Bin Ladin learned one thing from the soviet afghan war. That, for mere pennies on the dollar, you can provoke a superpower into foolishly occupying muslim land, and bleed them like a stuck pig for years on end.

    It's the reverse physcology effect. After all, they tried it in 04--by basically threatening any red state in America if they voted for President Bush. Well, that didn't work, so try the opposite approach--LOL.

    Believe me, the last person Al Queda wants to see in office, is John McCain who was the one that called for the surge in Iraq-& "against all opposition" succeeded in kicking Al Queda's butt in Iraq.

    McCain plans to do the exact same strategy in Afganistan.

    You are completely incorrect. Al Queda endorsed John Kerry in 04--by Bin Laden putting out a video right before the election--threatening red states if they voted for President Bush.

    Al Queda has been getting their asses kicked in Iraq--because of John McCain. He was the first one to call for the surge, & against all opposition from democrats, including Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid & John Murtha--whom all stated the surge would not work, & would only make things worse.

    In fact, if Barack Obama would have had his way, we would have surrendered to terrorists & insurgents two years ago.

    Of course Bin Laden would want McCain to win. It's sort of how hardline Marxists are actually supposed to be big promoters of free trade, because Marx theorized that it would unite the international working class by creating more stark class divisions (i.e. rising inequality and such). Bin Laden would promote McCain because he's likelier to continue the fight, which is really the best way Bin Laden has to get lots of recruits. Obviously he can't come out and endorse McCain because that would hurt their chances. Besides, if anyone looked at the reports they're talking about, it was from Al-Qaeda supporters' websites, not from 'central command' or whatever.

    As for Iraq and John McCain 'kicking their ass': unbelievable. If anything, the war effort in Iraq has strengthened al-Qaeda's position, surge or no surge. The fact is there was no al-Qaeda in Iraq prior to the Invasion, so whatever the surge has done to "fight the terrorists", the US is exactly were it started at best. On the other hand, Iraq left Afghanistan almost off the agenda, and ever since it's just been getting worse there. Incidentally, that's where all the remaining 'bigwigs' still are.

    I sincerely doubt they give a damn which candidate wins to be honest.

    Both candidates seem to have the same plan in Iraq.

    STay long enough to stabilize the nation then get out.
