More warnings from the impotent figure head of al-Qaeda
Aljazeera.Net – Bin Laden warns Iraqi Shia of revenge:

Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda’s leader, has purportedly issued an internet message warning Iraqi Shia of retaliation if they continued to attack Sunnis.

“It is not possible that many of the people of the south (Shia) violate, alongside America and its allies, [the Sunni cities of] Ramadi, Falluja, Mosul … that their areas would be safe from retaliation and harm,” said the speaker on the audiotape posted on the net.

In what would be his second message in two days if confirmed, bin Laden said the Islamic community was depending on Islamist fighters in Iraq as well as Somalia.

“Your Muslim nation is looking for you and praying for your victory. You are their hope after God. You are God’s trusted soldiers who will liberate the ummah (the Muslim nation) from the serfdom of the crusaders in our countries.”

The al-Qaeda leader also said his group reserved the right to fight the United States and warned Washington and the international community against sending forces to Somalia.

“We will fight its (US) soldiers on the land of Somalia … and we reserve the right to punish it on its land and anywhere possible.
