Democrats sound like Osama bin Laden

The other day, a new audio recording from Osama bin Laden was released by Al-Jazeera for his first broadcasted message in over 13 months. The recording was much different from his past recordings though, as his messages are usually laced with claims of jihad (holy war) and Islamic Quran teachings.

This one was very different. He claimed that Bush had lied about Iraq's WMDs and had lied to go to war with Iraq. He then claimed that the only reason Bush called for war with Iraq was for the oil. He continued to say that our troops are doing no less harm than Saddam did as dictator. Lastly, he said that American troops will never win the war against Islamic terrorism, and therefore Bush needs to withdraw the troops immediately.

The funny thing that I noticed about all of these comments is that they sound extremely similar to another group's comments. How many signs have you seen claiming that "Bush Lied," and "No War for Oil?" What about John Kerry saying that our troops shouldn't be terrorizing Iraqis? How about Howard Dean saying that we can't win this war?

It almost makes me wonder if this party even knows that their talking points co-align with those of Osama bin Laden.

I'm not trying to hint that this party is conspiring with bin Laden. That would be a crazy conspiracy theory left only to the likes of Michael Moore and other propagandists. I'm just saying that it has to be scary for the Democrats of today to be hearing someone like Osama bin Laden voicing his agreement with their core beliefs.

Maybe they should re-evaluate their position and realign themselves with someone that doesn't want to kill Americans. Then, maybe they could win an election.
