Al Qaeda Isn't Stupid

More proof that the terrorists know the score on the American Homefront:

WASHINGTON - In a letter to his top deputy in Iraq, al-Qaida's No. 2 leader said the United States "ran and left their agents" in Vietnam and the jihadists must have a plan ready to fill the void if the Americans suddenly leave Iraq.

"Things may develop faster than we imagine," Ayman al-Zawahri wrote in a letter to his top deputy in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. "The aftermath of the collapse of American power in Vietnam — and how they ran and left their agents — is noteworthy. ... We must be ready starting now."
And the protestors with their visions of Vietnam II call themselves patriotic... I think I'm going to be ill.

And al-Zawahiri has a message for the idiots who think there wouldn't be war if the U.S. wasn't there:

In a letter taking up 13 typed pages in its English translation, al-Zawahri also recommended a four-stage expansion of the war that would take the fighting to neighboring Muslim countries.

"It has always been my belief that the victory of Islam will never take place until a Muslim state is established ... in the heart of the Islamic world," al-Zawahri wrote.
The leftists and other war protestors say if we just leave the terrorists alone everyone will live together... happy and peaceful?! Idiots! Dangerous idiots!

But one note of hopefulness:

"More than half of this battle is taking place in the battlefield of the media," he wrote. "We are in a media battle in a race for the hearts and minds of our umma," or community of Muslims, he wrote.
Perhaps another sign that we are winning...
