Vote Bush: The Terrorist's Choice in 2004

How much more proof do you need that the War in Iraq is counterproductive to the aim of reducing the threat of terrorism? How 'bout a direct endorsement from the man claiming responsibility for the Madrid bombing?

"...The statement said it supported President Bush in his reelection campaign, and would prefer him to win in November rather than the Democratic candidate John Kerry, as it was not possible to find a leader "more foolish than you (Bush), who deals with matters by force rather than with wisdom."

In comments addressed to Bush, the group said:

"Kerry will kill our nation while it sleeps because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish blasphemy and present it to the Arab and Muslim nation as civilization."

"Because of this we desire you (Bush) to be elected." ".

Of course they do! Bush is a Terrorist recruiter's job security.

Strategic Error

But wasn't the election of Zapatero a victory for al-Qaeda? I'm sure that al-Queda and simple-minded American conservatives would like to see it that way, but in reality, as Jim Lobe observes, this view is childlike and short-sighted:

"Juan Cole, a Middle East specialist at the University of Michigan, asserted that, by mixing Iraq with al-Qaeda, the neo-conservatives – in particular – had made a strategic error in the war against terrorism, which was now coming home to roost.

"Aznar, in supporting Bush on the war against Iraq, was not standing up to al-Qaeda," Cole wrote, noting that the former prime minister's decision to deploy troops and spend financial and intelligence resources in Iraq meant those same assets could not be used against al-Qaeda, even when it was clear from last May's attack on a Spanish cultural center in Casablanca that Islamist terrorists had Spain in their sights.

"How much did Spain spend to go after the culprits in Casablanca?" asked Cole? "How much did Bush dedicate to that effort? How much did they instead invest in military efforts in Iraq?"

In that respect, Zapatero's pledge to refocus the war against al-Qaeda can hardly be called a "victory for (Osama) bin Laden," according to Cole".
