Bin Laden Tape - Still think this isn't about spreading democracy? The new Bin Laden tape tells Iraqis not to vote, that anyone who votes is an 'infidel.' It praises terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi for his cowardly attacks on civilians. Bin Laden is releasing tape after tape as the elections in Iraq grow closer. He knows that once Iraqis take power into their own hands by casting ballots for their own leaders, the days of the terrorists are numbered. People who know they are free don't stand for attacks on civilians by thugs. People who know they are free will not just sit back and let 'men' like al-Zarqawi rule through fear.
The latest tape should give the naysayers pause. The prospect of elections obviously scares Osama bin Laden. Why?
