Michael Moore’s latest fan

07.28.2004

Osama Bin Laden’s half-brother liked “Farenheit 9/11” – though even he thinks that Moore is full of shit: “It’s a moving film,” Yeslam Binladin, a Geneva-based tycoon and one of the al-Qaida leader’s 54 siblings, said in an interview with the French magazine VSD. “I even laughed at times,” said Binladin, adding, “but a lot […]

Terrorist bastards strike again

06.19.2004

Saudi Al Qua’eda beheaded Paul Johnson, the kidnapped American contractor, as they had threatened to do if the Saudi government didn’t give into their demands and release prisoners.

Basra bombing

04.21.2004

Today’s suicide bombing in Iraq killed 68 people including 17 children. It was most likely Al Qa’eda’s handiwork: “They just blew up innocent Iraqis,” Bush told reporters in Washington after the almost simultaneous car bombs hit three police stations in Basra and two more struck a police academy in Zubair, a mainly Sunni town 15 […]

Surrendering to terrorism

04.15.2004

Everyone’s talking about the latest so-called Osama tape, on which he supposedly offers Europe (but not the US of course) a “truce” if they comply with Al Qa’eda’s demands. The only question is which European country *ahem France ahem* will be the first in line to surrender. After all, appeasement worked with Hitler oh-so-well, didn’t […]

04.02.2004

Al Qa’eda wants to kill Jews and Americans. No! Shocking! Quick, someone call a reporter! Yep, this ranks up there in “duh-factor” with last week’s shocker of a news headline: That if a federal election were to be held in Canada today, the Liberals would win. You don’t say! Tomorrow, I’ll probably open the paper […]

US Ambassador Paul Cellucci warned that Canada was one of the only targets on Al Qa’eda’s list that had not yet been hit with either a successful or foiled terrorist attack.

They had to know

05.14.2003

Al Qua’eda, or whatever offshoot of it that is responsible for the Riyadh suicide attacks, is a highly-organized terrorist network full of evil murderers. I’m sure they’ve been called every name in the book, and they more than deserve all of them. But one thing they are not is stupid. So then why would they […]
