DavidByron :: Text of Obama's latest video
"Praise be to God, Who created people to worship Him, ordered them to be just, and permitted the wronged to mete out fair punishment to the wrongdoer.

"American people: This address to you is a reminder of the causes of 11 (September) and the wars and consequences that followed and the way to settle it once and for all. I mention in particular the families of those who were hurt in these events and who have recently called for opening an investigation to know its causes. This is a first and important step in the right direction among many other steps that have deliberately gone in the wrong direction over eight barren years that you have experienced.

"The entire American people should follow suit, as the delay in knowing those reasons has cost you a lot without any noteworthy benefit.

"If the White House administration, which is one of the two parties to the dispute, has made it clear to you in the past years that war was necessary to maintain your security, then wise persons should be eager to listen to the two parties to the dispute to know the truth, so listen to what I am going to say.

"At the beginning, I say that we have made it clear and stated so many times for over two decades that the cause of the quarrel with you is your support for your Israeli allies, who have occupied our land, Palestine. This position of yours, along with some other grievances, is what prompted us to carry out the 11 September events. Had you known the magnitude of our suffering as a result of the injustice of the Jews against us, with the support of your administrations for them, you would have known that both our nations are victims of the policies of the White House, which is in fact a hostage in the hands of pressure groups, especially major corporations and the Israeli lobby.

"One of the best persons to explain to you the causes of the events of the 11th is one of your citizens, a former veteran CIA agent, whose conscience awoke in his eighth decade and decided to tell the truth despite the threats, and to explain to you the message of the 11th. So he carried out some activities for this purpose in particular, including his book "Apology of a Hired Assassin."

"As for explaining the suffering of our people in Palestine, Obama has recently acknowledged in his speech from Cairo the suffering of our kinfolk there, who are living under occupation and siege. Things will become clearer if you read what your former president, Carter, wrote about the racism of the Israelis against our kinfolk in Palestine, and also if you listened to his statement weeks ago during his visit to the destroyed and besieged Gaza Strip. He said in that statement that the people of Gaza are treated more as animals than human beings. For us God suffices, and He is the best disposer of affairs.

"We should have a lengthy pause at this point. Any person with an iota of mercy in his heart cannot but sympathize with those oppressed elderly, women, and children living under the deadly siege. Above that, the Zionists pound them with US-made incendiary phosphorous bombs. Life there is tragic beyond limits, to the point that children die b etween the arms of their parents and doctors due to the lack of food and medicine and the power outages. It is indeed a disgrace for world politicians who are content with that, and their loyalists, who are behaving as such with prior knowledge and premeditation, and under the influence of the Israeli lobby in America. The details of that are explained by two of your fellow citizens. They are John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt in their book "The Israel Lobby" in the United States.

"After reading the suggested books, you will know the truth and you will be severely shocked at the magnitude of deception that has been practiced against you. You will also know that those who make statements from inside the White House today and claim that your wars against us are necessary for your security are in fact working along the same line of Cheney and Bush, and propagating the former policies of intimidation to market the interests of the relevant major corporations, at the expense of your blood and economy. Those in fact are the ones who are imposing wars on you, not the mujahidin. We are just defending our right to liberate our land.

"If you thoroughly consider your situation, you will know that the White House is occupied by pressure groups. You should have made efforts to liberate it rather than fight to liberate Iraq, as Bush claimed. The White House leader, under such circumstances, and regardless of who he is, is like a train driver who cannot but travel on the railways designed by these pressure groups. Otherwise, his way would be blocked and he would fear that his destiny would be like that of former President Kennedy and his brother.

"In a nutshell, it is time to free yourselves from fear and intellectual terrorism being practiced against you by the neoconservatives and the Israeli lobby. You should put the file of your alliance with the Israelis on the table of discussion. You should ask yourselves the following question so that you can determine your position: Do you like the Israelis' security, sons, and economy more than your security, blood, sons, money, jobs, houses, economy, and reputation? If you choose your security and stopping the wars -- and this has been shown by opinion polls -- then this requires that you act to stop those who are tampering with our security on your end. We are prepared to respond to this option on sound and fair foundations that have been mentioned before.

"Here is an important point that we should pay attention to with regard to war and stopping it. When Bush assumed power and appointed a defense secretary who had made the biggest contribution to killing more than two million persecuted villagers in Vietnam, sane people predicted that Bush was preparing for new massacres in his era. This was what took place in Iraq and Afghanistan. When Obama assumed power and kept the men of Cheney and Bush -- namely, the senior officials in the Defense Department, like Gates, Mullen, and Petraeus -- sane people knew that Obama is a weak person who will not be able to stop the war as he had promised and that he would procrastinate as much as possible. If he were to decide, then he would hand over command to the generals who oppose this aimless war, like the former commander of troops in Iraq, General Sanchez, and the commander of the Central Command who was forced by Bush to resign shortly before leaving the White House due to his opposition to the war. He appointed instead of him a person who would escalate the war. Under the cover of his readiness to cooperate with the Republicans, Obama made the biggest trick as he kept the most important and most dangerous secretary from Cheney's men to continue the war. The days will show you that you have changed only faces in the White House. The bitter truth is that the neoconservatives are still a heavy burden on you.

"Once again, if you stop the war, then that is fine. If you choose not to stop the war, then we have no other option but to continue the war of attrition against you on all possible axes, just as we did with the Soviet Union for 10 years until it disintegrated, with the grace of God. Continue the war for as long as you wish. You are fighting a desperate, losing war that is in favor of others. There seems to be no end in sight for this war.

"Russian generals, who learned lessons from the battles in Afghanistan, had anticipated the result of the war before its start, but you do not like those who give you advice. This is a losing war, God willing, as it is funded by money that is borrowed based on exorbitant usury and is fought by soldiers whose morale is down and who commit suicide on a daily basis to escape from this war.

"This war was prescribed to you by two doctors, Cheney and Bush, as a cure for the 11 September events. However, the bitterness and losses caused by this war are worse than the bitterness of the events themselves. The accumulated debts incurred as a result of this war have almost done away with the US economy as a whole. It has been said that disease could be less evil than some medicines.

"Praise be to God, we are carrying our weapon on our shoulders and have been fighting the two poles of evil in the East and the West for 30 years. Throughout this period, we have not seen any cases of suicide among us despite the international pursuit against us. We praise God for this. This proves the soundness of our belief and the justice of our cause. God willing, we will continue our way to liberate our land. Our weapon is patience. We seek victory from God. We will not give up the Al-Aqsa Mosque. We hold on to Palestine more than we hold on to our souls. Continue the war as long as you wish, we will never bargain over it (Palestine).

"Endless war will not tire me
"For I am now fully grown and strong
"For this, my mother begot me (lines of poetry)
"Peace be upon those who follow guidance."

Definitely a Nader / Ron paul voter (4.00 / 2)
The White House leader, under such circumstances, and regardless of who he is, is like a train driver who cannot but travel on the railways designed by these pressure groups. Otherwise, his way would be blocked and he would fear that his destiny would be like that of former President Kennedy and his brother.

But it's naive if he thinks Kennedy or his brother were somehow shot because they were just too nice.  The tone is actually very much like a bummed out pwoggie commentator from around the blogs, who is vowing "never again" to vote Democratic, but who almost certainly will return to vote for them evermore.

At any rate another year, another video (audio really) and Osmama, or whoever it is, becomes more sophisticated in his arguments.  I keep expecting him to mention Daily Kos or say he's a big fan of Rachel Maddow.  (At least if she wasn't such a right wing whore on foreign policy).

i noticed the sophistication too (0.00 / 0)
he has always been a no bullshitter -- I mean if he wasnt our nations number one enemy i am in agreement with him on nearly everything he says

but also it speaks of current events.  some of the old vids could have been recorded anytime because they were so generic.  I mean he could mention "the recent events in palestine" and that could be played most any time.  

OBL should blog on PrisonPlanet.

That reminds me (4.00 / 2)
"Once again, if you stop the war, then that is fine. If you choose not to stop the war, then we have no other option but to continue the war of attrition against you on all possible axes, just as we did with the Soviet Union for 10 years until it disintegrated, with the grace of God."

That fucktard Brizewenski (sp?) was on Maddow the other night and he was talking about the Afghan war and how daft it was.

I was laughing my ass of and Mrs Byron asked me why so I had to explain why the little fuck was so angry --- how it was his fucking idea to train Afghan terrorists and send them into the USSR to provoke a USSR invasion and so on, so as to bleed the Soviets dry in a Vietnam-style war like the one that had recently screwed the US economy so badly.  (Obviously as a peaceful country the Soviets would never do this on their own and had to be forced to it).

So the little fuck was sitting there wanting to shout out, "YOU FUCKING MORONS JUST FELL INTO THE SAME FUCKING TRAP WE LAID FOR THE COMMIES"

He didn't mention his part in it and Maddow didn't either.

"Once again, if you stop the war, then that is fine. If you choose not to stop the war, then we have no other option but to continue the war of attrition against you on all possible axes, just as we did with the Soviet Union for 10 years until it disintegrated, with the grace of God."

In all honesty I would have expected Osama to be crowing a lot more considering how ably he has so far been winning his war against the US.

Obama in English (4.00 / 2)
It might be funny to have a translation of Obama's health care speech in English..

I could try to translate into Byronese (4.50 / 2)
but as you say someone would have to first translate it to English.  There's a bullshit threshold and when stuff exceeds it I find it very hard to read because i have to go over and over and over again the same few lines contradicting them in my mind and not getting much of a gist for it.  Also searching for the meaning in nonsense is taxing.

Spooky (4.00 / 1)
With current technology these tapes could be faked easily. You can feed samples of OBL speaking then have another person record and it autotunes to OBL.  

i havent seen the video but i am anxious to see it and see which OBL it is.  He is like the old Madonna.  You never know what he is gonna look like next.  

My question now is: The Bushes were totally tied to the CIA and black ops up to their eyeballs.  If the tapes are faked they have to be coming from either the CIA or the Israelis. Obama and he crew dont seem connected to any that crowd so its doubtful they have a hand in this.  So who is fucking with Obama.  Come on.  Poll shows america wants out, Election in dissarray and now an OBL tape. Someone is really ratching up the afghanistan.



what noom would say


He has to post these messages each year (4.00 / 2)
Osama has to make a good faith offer of peace -- it's Islamic law I think.  That's the key reason for these videos.  Each time you will notice he makes an offer of peace and each time its simply that America stop killing and occupying Muslim peoples.

The video is just of a still photograph of Osama.  Looks like an old one too.  It is basically just an audi track set to a still photo.

Besides there are no elections due.

If the CIA or Israel faked these messages wouldn't the real Osama or the real Al-Qaeda simply send a message saying, "That wasn't us!"?  Or are you saying that Al-Qaeda is complicit/allied with the CIA, in which case wouldn't they still be the ones producing the videos not the CIA?

I don't think they are fake.

This article should be on some sort of test of political expertise.  Figure out what is really being said at each turn.  

You will be tested on this.

An issue of some small interest (0.00 / 0)
A while back Rolling Stone (of Matt Taibbi fame and I think it might have been one of his articles but maybe not) had a piece on Obama actually doing some good in the world.  That doesn't happen often, just as it didn't for Bush, so I was interested.

Basically the article said Obama was moving to cut private companies out of student loans which would be a great relief for the students and save the government a bundle too.  but it was all at the planning stage at the time.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

So here we are six months later and it sounds like the bill has been watered down and will be watered down more by the senate if it passes at all.  Sound familiar?  Even so probably with health care sucking all the oxygen I guess it will pass and do some good, but we shall see.

Anyone else know much about this one?

Women getting less happier over last 40 years (0.00 / 0)
Interesting article.  According to opinion polls going back 40 years women (who back in 1972 reported being happier) are less happy than men and the trend is ever downward for women, and upward for men.  While overall trends could be explained away in all sorts of ways I think the difference between men and women's answers over time is a real result.  Either women are less happy or men are more happy or both.

No doubt the article is feminist written as revealed by this line:

Not only is this "tough life" significantly tougher on women than it is on men, but the advances of the last 40 years were supposed to have changed things for the better. And not just for womankind, but for each individual woman.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

Article takes it for granted that because women are less happy according to polls that means life is tougher on women.  But by that same logic of course life in 1972 was tougher on men than it was on women --- something no feminist would agree with.

The article can think of no reason for the trend -- well from inside the feminist mindset how could you?  The feminist mind set was that men had it great and women were victims back in the 60s.  Therefore since women have had to take on more male roles and work for a living according to feminist cant they must be happier.

Obvious bullshit.  Having to work isn't fulfilling morons.  There's a reason they call it the rat race.  There's a reason they call it "work".

Welcome to the male experience ladies.

Having said that the same figures show that women are more happy than men until the age of about 47.  On average obviously.  So it may be that this is just a generational thing and the older women were brought up to expect to be taken care of more and are unhappy if they are not?

The question is which slant is higher?  If women on average are getting less happy but the younger women are the happier they are, then is the average happiness of the next generation increasing or decreasing for women?  Not clear from the tables.  feminists do tend to manipulate statistics a LOT to try and make it look bad for women so I wouldn't be surprised if some of that is going on.  Still 40 years of longitudinal research can't be sniffed at.

I'd have to see the actual questions to form any opinion on the study (0.00 / 0)
But if it's an honest one it probably addresses the incompatibilities of having a full time career and also raising children and maintaining the home. This impossibility has been overlooked for decades now. It simply doesn't 'work' without 'help'. And if younger women(the children of this past era) are indeed 'happier' i'd put it down to what doesn't kill you makes you stronger...but these statements about whether specific sections of humanity are happier or not are just narrow and silly when you get right down to it.

These 'studies' are as far as higher education seems to be going these days.


[ Parent ]
Well yes but (0.00 / 0)
As silly as they might be it still seems significant that once you've got your base line of men vs women and where men are at that women start off happier and then become less happy based on the same question-- whatever the question is.

It does mention other polling too but it doesn't say they had a gender split.

having a full time career and also raising children and maintaining the home

Exactly; women suddenly forced to the balancing act men have always had.
