Somewhere, Usama is Smiling

Panicked by rumors of a suicide bomber, thousands of Shiite pilgrims
broke into a stampede on a bridge during a religious procession Wednesday,
crushing one another or plunging 30 feet into the muddy Tigris river. About
800 died, mostly women and children, officials said. from AP

They didn’t even have to waste a martyr or any valuable explosives,
and they managed to kill more people than in any suicide attack since
9/11. With a rumor!

New Orleans’ homeland
security chief, Terry Ebbert, said looters were breaking into stores
all over town and stealing guns. He said there are gangs of armed men
moving around the city. At one point, officers stranded on the roof
of a hotel were fired at by criminals on the street. from AP

Sounds a lot like Bagdad….

Fears of an international energy crisis mounted yesterday
as the scale of human and economic devastation caused in the southern
US by Hurricane Katrina became fully apparent. from the Financial Times

Why waste energy fighting the Great Satan, when we are
doing such a good job of fighting ourselves. Somewhere Usama is smiling…..
