Al Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri said in a videotape aired Monday that President Bush was a "butcher" and a "failure" because of a deadly U.S. airstrike targeting the bin Laden deputy.The only failure about the airstrike was that Zawahiri survived. This sounds like a child going, "Nyah nyah - you missed me!" And in case you didn't know just how selfish Zawahiri was:
"Butcher of Washington, you are not only defeated and a liar, but also a failure. You are a curse on your own nation," he said, referring to Bush. "Bush, do you know where I am? I am among the Muslim masses."Of course he is among the Muslim masses. This way, he can take advantage of the United States' reluctance to kill innocent civilians. As it is, the strike he was referencing killed 13 villagers in addition to 4 Al-Qaeda leaders.
What often happens when a child goes "Nyah nyah" is that the next time, they get nailed - really hard. Here's hoping that Zawahiri faces the same fate.
