So Mullah Omar and the Talibans don't have the same viewpoint as Jay and the Americans. As I recall, Jay's group sang about how only in America - land of opportunity - could a poor boy grow up to be president. In a statement attributed to Mullah Omar on the death of Zarqawi, Omar says:

It is the peoples' resistance, and every youth can become Zarqawi...Many, many, many more young men can become Zarqawi. The successors...can be even stronger than him.

So, young men of the world, which do you want to be? President of the United States or a dead terrorist?

We're in an ideological war against radical Islamists. With Omar manufacturing ammo for us, why aren't we fighting this battle more energetically?
