    Default Al Qaeda Leader Calls for Attacks on US: "We Should Bleed America Economically"

    In an audio tape released to jihadi forums the day after 9/11, al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri laid out a strategy for future attacks. Zawahiri called for ‘a few of the brothers’ to commit small-scale, ‘sporadic blows’ in America.



    These types of attacks would “keep the U.S. in a constant state of heightened security,” he reasoned, which would in turn have a deleterious effect on the U.S. economy—a strategy al Qaeda has pursued for quite some time.

    “We should bleed America economically by provoking it to continue in its massive expenditure on its security, for the weak point of America is its economy, which has already begun to stagger due to the military and security expenditure," he said.

    An example of the strategy, which some refer to as ‘death by a thousand cuts,’ can be seen in the October 2010 ink cartridge bomb plot. In a special issue of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s online magazine, Inspire, the group boasts about the disparity between the cost of the plot to the terrorists and what it cost the United States.

    Although he stressed the importance of smaller attacks, Zawahiri said Muslims should not miss an opportunity for a major strike, even if they must wait years. So while the al Qaeda leader's message is nothing new, it's clear the group will continue to be a threat for decades to come.

    The sad fact of the matter is that we are letting them do it to us too.

    Many of their leaders over the past decade plus have said the same thing, but we are too fucking stupid to change what we are doing.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    The last eight presidents and Congress minus Clinton pretty much have already done that.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
