Al Qaeda: We want to use Pakistani nukes on US

If it were in a position to do so, Al Qaeda would use Pakistan’s nuclear weapons in its fight against the United States, a top leader of the group said in remarks aired on Sunday.

Pakistan has been battling al Qaeda‘s Taliban allies in the Swat Valley since April after their thrust into a district 100 km (60 miles) northwest of the capital raised fears the nuclear-armed country could slowly slip into militant hands.

Is the UAE Paying Al-Qaeda to Stay Away?

Many observers are surprised that Dubai, with its high concentration of westerners and relaxed dress code, has not yet been struck by al-Qaeda-inspired Islamist militants.

Unlike neighbour Saudi Arabia, the UAE has had no major terrorism incidents.

I have wondered about this for a while. With all the Western-influenced construction and influx of non-Muslim travelers in Dubai, why has it not been attacked by al-Qaeda? The United Arab Emirates has so much money to throw around that it is conceivable that they would pay protection money to keep terrorists away. One would think that Dubai would be like a stick in the eye of Osama bin Laden, since he considers the Arabian Peninsula to be sacred ground and wants to remove everything that is non-Islamic.

Great Britain: Terror Cells in London, Birmingham and Luton Planning Something Big

The document, which was drawn up by the intelligence branch of the Ministry of Defence, MI5 and Special Branch, states that “some thousands” of extremists are active in the UK. They are predominantly UK-born and aged between 18 and 30, and many are believed to have been trained in overseas terrorist camps. Under the heading “International Terrorism”, the report, which is marked “restricted” states: “For the foreseeable future the UK will continue to be a high-priority target for international terrorists aligned with al-Qaeda. It will face a threat from British nationals, including Muslim converts, and UK-based foreign terrorists, as well as terrorists planning attacks from abroad.” The report states that the threat from the Islamist extremist community in the UK is “diverse and widely distributed” but adds that the numbers of terrorist in Britain is “difficult to judge”. The document does state, however, that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, which is based in MI5’s headquarters at Thames House in London, estimates that there are “some thousands of extremists in the UK committed to supporting Jihadi activities, either in the UK or abroad”.London Telegraph

Poll Shows Unimportance of ‘World Opinion’

Another ‘WTF? poll’ shows many countries are populated by idiots.
“Hey, where’s your proof of that, you American imperialist bigot?!”
Proof? OK Pinko, here’s some proof before I make you bleed for days:1. Almost as many Turks believe the US (36%) is responsible for 9/11 as al-Qaeda (39%).2. 23% of Naz… uh, Germans, believe America was behind 9/11.3. 15% of Russia give al-Qaeda a pass and blames the US.4. 15% of Italians blame America.5. 17% of South Koreans blame us.6. 15% of Ukrainians blame the victim.7. 27% of Palestinians blame us, 19% blame Israel.8. 30% of Mexicans blame America, 33% blame al-Qaeda.9. In Indonesia, 14% blame us, 9% blame Israel.Oh, and I’ve saved the last two for last…10. Egyptians put the blame on Israel by a wide margin (43%), 12% blame us, and only 16% blame al-Qaeda. Good job by Jimmy Carter getting Israel to give up the Sinai to a country that would love the kill the rest of the Jewish State. The only thing holding Egypt back from becoming a Sunni Iran is the dictator Mubarak.
11. And finally Jordan, which blames Israel 31%, America 17% and al-Qaeda 11%.
Oh yeah, the United States should really give a damn about what the world thinks of us. These nations are not even close to meeting us half-way. Instead they cling to fairy-tales and savage lies as a way to prop themselves up and temporarily forget that they live in piles of filth of their own making by blaming the US and Israel for everything.A few bits of good news are highlighted in the poll below by the color…oh, I don’t know…let’s use Turquoise this time!!! (Pretty!)
