9/11, Paper Tigers and Shameful Defeat

"After leaving Afghanistan, the Muslim fighters headed for Somalia and prepared for a long battle, thinking that the Americans were like the Russians," bin Laden said. "The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the American soldier was a paper tiger and after a few blows ran in defeat. And America forgot all the hoopla and media propaganda ... about being the world leader and the leader of the New World Order, and after a few blows they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat."—Osama bin Laden, May 1998 (Link)

The Battle of Mogadishu, Somalia October 3 and 4, 1993 in which eighteen American soldiers died and 73 were wounded After terrorists attacked U.S. troops Rep. John Murtha urged then-President Clinton to begin a complete pullout of U.S. troops from the region.

Clinton took the advice and ordered the withdrawal - a decision that Osama bin Laden would later credit with emboldening his terrorist fighters and encouraging him to mount further attacks against the U.S. Bin Laden said that the low military morale under President Clinton and President Clinton’s order for American troops to withdraw from Somalia proved to the Muslim world that the U.S. is a paper tiger unable to withstand the hardships of war.

Since 9/11 five years later bin Laden has demanded several times that America submit to Islam or be destroyed. The reality is bin Laden is counting on the paper tiger that he once talked about to leave Iraq with it’s tail tucked between it’s legs, dragging it’s corpses behind it in shameful defeat and if we listen to the likes of Rep. John Murtha again bin Laden’s vision shall be realized.

Bin Laden was correct in 1998 when he made that fateful assessment of America’s Leadership it was in fact a paper tiger. It took the political elections of 2000 and 2004 to remove the big fake cat from the American psyche and it will take the elections of 2006 and 2008 to prevent him from coming back to retake his territory.

As 9/11 has taught Americans today’s world is no place for paper tigers, today world demands that America’s leaders show the ferocity that a mother tiger would demonstrate when protecting her young from those who would harm them.

In today’s world there are many predators who have stated that they are attempting to harm the young of America. No mother tiger is going to run and leave her cubs abandoned unless of course they are the kind of tigers that Osama bin Laden is talking about.

Paper tigers, John Murtha and Democrats are the kind of tigers that Osama bin Laden knows that he can cause to have a shameful defeat. He would have had it already were it not for the American’s people rejection of defeatism in 2000 and 2004.

To keep America strong we must once again, in 2006 and 2008, reject the defeatism of the paper tigers or we must submit to Osama bin Laden's vision. According to bin Laden those are the only options that he will accept.

Europe is in the process of submitting even now and if America is a paper tiger then we are next!
