It's alive!

Recently I was actually persuaded that Osama bin Laden was dead and had been dead since the bombing of Tora Bora along the Afghan-Pakistani border. There had been some very compelling arguments for this line of thought. One of the most compelling to me was the notion that a megalomaniac such as OBL could not possibly resist hiding from the public for so long. Surely, he would insist upon taking the international spotlight to preach his hatred if he were able.
Finally, I'm convinced he's still alive.
Details are provided in the tape that indicate recent events since Tora Bora. On the video he says;

"Your security is not in the hands of Kerry, Bush or al-Qaida. Your security is in your own hands. Any state that does not mess with our security, has naturally guaranteed its own security."

John Kerry became the Democratic candidate for president last spring.

I think President Bush is right when he responded that Americans will not be intimidated by its enemy. There is some gobblty-gook, crazy stuff in bin Laden's video. He claims that America can avoid another attack by simply withdrawing from the Arab sphere of influence. That is ridiculous. No one but a fool would ever believe that if America is cowed by this murderer today, the stakes will not be raised until it leads to our own destruction.

There is good news in learning that OBL is alive. It means that we can still either kill him or possibly capture him alive, put him on trial and hang him. Saddam Hussein will soon go on trial. That will be an excellent opportunity to demonstrate to the world that America is doing good deeds in bringing justice to Islam.
Hopefully, we'll be able to repeat that action with the mass murderer Osama bin Laden. And with the multi-million dollar reward on his head for his capture, that's a real possibility.
