Very interesting elements from the rest of OBL's video (from a transcript that includes the missing 14 minutes). This is strong support for global guerrilla warfare (which uses system attacks to cause economic attrition -- see my earlier journal entry on this). Here's what he said:
"All that we have mentioned has made it easy for us to provoke and bait this administration." NOTE: See Superpower Baiting for more on this topic.
"All that we have to do is to send two Mujahideen to the furthest point East to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al-Qaida, in order to make the generals race there to cause America to suffer human, economic, and political losses without their achieving for it anything of note other than some benefits for their private companies. This is in addition to our having experience in using guerrilla warfare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers, as we, alongside the Mujahideen, bled Russia for ten years, until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat."
"So we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy ." "...for example, al-Qaida spent $500 000 on the event, while America, in the incident and its aftermath, lost – according to the lowest estimate – more than 500 billion dollars." "Meaning that every dollar of al-Qaida defeated a million dollars by the permission of Allah, besides the loss of a huge number of jobs."
