Bin Laden, Threats And The Rising Price Of Oil
The same description can and should be applied to the Arab terrorist Osama Bin Laden, who in a new tape recorded message today, again threatens the U.S., Europe, Israel and even the poor black Muslims of the Darfur region in the Sudan.
This foul fanatic is not content with the murders he and his associates have already committed in America, England, Jordan, Indonesia, Chad, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel. India and other countries. No, he wants to bring a barbaric and medieval dark age to the whole world, and obviously there is only one policy that will thwart him, the use of force. That is why the American and NATO forces now fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq are representing the whole world, to cut out the evil cancer where it flourishs the most.
The present war has many aspects, and one of them is surely the spiraling price of oil, now at a record $75 a barrel,
There are other reasons for the price rise, including the failure to conserve adequately in the U.S., Iranian nuclear blustering and the growing demand for oil in China and India.
But it would be silly not to conclude that we are also a victim here of rapacious forces sympathetic to fundementalist Islam and Bin Laden, who are trying to castrate the West and who, if they were able, would cut off oil supplies from the Middle East. The attacks against Saudi Arabian oil facilities may only be a precursor of events to come.
That is why present developments in the oil industry are of prime interest, and not only as a means for the Democrats to win the midterm elections,
No, the present war has many dimensions. It is being fought not only with troops and, possibly in the future, weapons of mass destruction, but economically, and through the corruption of migrants who are threatening stability in Europe and elsewhere.
It is, I'm convinced, necessary to destroy this man and all of his associates, eradicate them from a world they could possibly wreck. They are not only threatening, but will, if they could, ruin the happiness and hope for progress of millions of people.
That is why, no effort, should be spared in finding Bin Laden and doing to him what we did to Hitler and Mussolini.
