An American Al-Qaida member is the star of a new video tape threatening the United States with attacks far worse then 9/11.
Wearing a white robe and a turban, Adam Yehiye Gadahn, who also goes by the name Azzam al-Amriki, said al-Qaida would not negotiate on its demands.
“Your failure to heed our demands … means that you and your people will … experience things which will make you forget all about the horrors of September 11th, Afghanistan and Iraq and Virginia Tech,” he said in the seven-minute video.
Ben Venzke from IntelCenter says:
‘the group likely did not believe any of its demands would be met.’
Obviously this is the point. Al-Qaida knows we don’t and won’t negotiate with terrorists. Therefore, this is just an excuse to justify attacks on the U.S. A way to say, ‘hey, we told you, now you will pay.’
So should we be worried? I’ll tell you what, this is all eerily familiar.
The fact that I live in Germany right now and we are under a “Heightened Alert” and the tapes. Well…if anything, keep your eyes open.
As you may or may not recall, around July 23rd of 2001 warnings came out about an attack overseas. I remember the night I read the article (which, by the way, I have searched the Internet far and wide for such an article..nothing seems to go back far enough). I was working at our Command Post, a graveyard shift and was reading the news on MSNBC.com. I read the article, found it so interesting I forwarded it to my Parents, Sister and friends. And we know what happened after that.
Remember, it only takes one guy to cause harm. One. One Psycho, One Terrorist.
It doesn’t matter how smart or stupid these cells are, it doesn’t take brains to pull a trigger or push a detonator.
Whenever someone threatens you, you should take it seriously. No matter what. If your family or children were threatened, you would take it seriously. So take this seriously. It’s the same exact thing on a much bigger scale. Don’t be afraid, just be vigilant, observant.
Also recognize that these terrorists know exactly how to get to us..mentally. Before Iraq, they were telling us we needed to convert, drop our support for Israel. Using Iraq as leverage and knowing how torn our Country is, they tell us we must leave the Middle East or face devastation.
All our lefties out there will use this as an excuse for why we shouldn’t be involved in Iraq. And that’s called waiving a white flag.
The fact of the matter is, no matter what we do, they will hate us. If we pulled out of Iraq, then we would have to stop supporting Israel or face attacks. If we stopped supporting Israel then we would all have to convert to Islam. If we did that we’d have to give up or Western ways.
Their demands are ENDLESS.
If it looks suspicious, feels suspicious, it probably is suspicious. Let’s take care of each other out there. This is our Country, Defend it anyway you can, even if it’s just with your eyes and voice.
