WAR: I Taunt You

On that purported Al Qaeda tape that the Mad Hibernian links to below, I thought there were two interesting things:

1. The Islamists accusing the French of "Crusader envy." So much for the superiority of the French approach to the "simplistic" and "arrogant" American tack in getting a break from these nutballs.

2. There was something rather pathetic in the efforts to taunt Bush:

"Bush, fortify your targets, tighten your defense, intensify your security measures," the tape recording warned, "because the fighting Islamic community which sent you New York and Washington battalions has decided to send you one battalion after the other, carrying death and seeking heaven."

Sure, they could pull something off at any time . . . but until they do, this stuff sounds like bluster that wouldn't be necessary if their operations weren't severely crimped. Or, put another way:

I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. . . now go away before I taunt you a second time.

Recall that they knights who shouted those words from the castle parapet were French ("you silly English knnnnnnnnnnnigit!").

"Crusader envy," indeed.
