The man who self-identifies as OBL has gone to school on Karl Marx and picked up his talking points in part from Teddy Kennedy, Terry McAuliffe, John Kerry and their allies:
“This war makes millions of dollars for big corporations, either weapons manufacturers or those working in the reconstruction [of Iraq], such as Halliburton and its sister companies…
“It is crystal clear who benefits from igniting the fire of this war and this bloodshed: They are the merchants of war, the bloodsuckers who run the policy of the world from behind the scenes.”
What about the oil companies? What about the multinational corporations? What about McDonald’s and Wal-Mart? Maybe next time.
MEMRI has released a translation of the three-month standing offer you can’t refuse: “Osama Bin Laden Speech Offers Peace Treaty with Europe, Says Al-Qa’ida ‘Will Persist in Fighting’ the U.S.”
UPDATE: A reader has supplied us the animated graphic illustration of the point — a John Kerry advertisement on Salon. The rotating billboard reads: “For the 1st time in history a corporation was allowed to invade a nation. No wonder the UN wasn’t involved. It’s time to UNSEAT George W. Bush.”
