Hot Air From Omar

The BBC interviewed Fearless Leader the other day. For those of morbid curiousity who wish to get a view into the mind of a pathetic (but homicidal) loon, I found a transcript at the English edition of Ha’aretz. Now that he’s lost his country, his soldiers are deserting him by the hundreds, we’re supposed to be quaking in our mothers’ army boots. Apparently, he is still going to destroy America, though he’s not real clear on the concept of, well, how.

BBC: What do you mean by the destruction of America? Do you have a concrete plan to implement this?

Omar: The plan is going ahead and, God willing, it is being implemented. But it is a huge task, which is beyond the will and comprehension of human beings. If God’s help is with us, this will happen within a short period of time; keep in mind this prediction.

I think you’ve been hanging out with Osama too long, Omar. Translation: “America will be destroyed, but we’re too feeble minded to figure out how to do it ourselves (just as we’re too idiotic and incompetent to learn to fly airplanes into buildings), so we’ll just trust to Allah.”

Short period of time, or no, my free advice is to not hold your breath, Omar. And, by the way, speaking of short periods of time, I wouldn’t be buying any green bananas either, if I were you…
