Who dat ‘fraid o Osama bin Laden?

Sing along with me now: “Who dat? Who dat?” 😉

This interesting statistic was posted to the web recently: Americans More Likely to be Shot by Law Enforcement than Killed by Terrorists. Say what? Say what?

It sounds about right. However, if we take the 3147 who were “killed by terrorists,” then discount those who were killed on 09/11/2001 because they were actually victims of a paramilitary operation/financial heist … then the number of people “killed by terrorists” becomes really really small.

Thus, statistically speaking, we are far more likely to get eaten by a pack of wild dogs than killed by “terrorists.” Henceforth, it would seem far more prudent [and far more rational] for us to take a few billion dollars away from the DHS budget and spend it on programs aimed at keeping wild dog populations in check. Sense!

Osama bin Laden is the boogeyman. He is Emanuel Goldstein from 1984. He is what your daddy (aka Freud’s “Big Daddy,” aka your government) uses when it suits him, so that you’ll stay in your room, cowering under the covers, rather than walk out and catch him naked with his coke whore in the living room [metaphorically speaking]. Here’s a clip on the multi-billion dollar hunt for the fictional Al Qaeda:


Good Night, and Good Luck!

Note A: The title of the article is an obtuse reference to many years ago when the normally hapless New Orleans Saints were making a playoff run, and the residents would sing, “Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints? Who dat? Who dat?”

Note B: The phrase “Al Qaeda” literally translates to “the toilet bowl” in Arabic. Why would a group of “Superterrorists” call themselves that? How would it benefit recruitment? Yes, it reads like a really bad Austin Powers plot.

  1. “The phrase “Al Qaeda” literally translates to “the toilet bowl” in Arabic.”

    “Big Daddy” is aware that nobody is going to check what the name means, and that the “truth” movement is pretty much closed off to ‘normal’ people. I think that “waking up” is akin to the monumental task of buddhists seeking enlightenment.

    The first task requires shedding yourself of all preconceptions about the world, the second is assessing everything, finding the flaws in your previous logic, interests, music, culture. the third is telling everyone about the NEW WORLD ORDER and being told in return that your mad. and the fourth is realising just how different you are now, and resigning yourself to the fact that noone else cares, and that awakening has to happen by its self.

  2. The widely known translation of ‘Al Qaeda’, sometimes spelled ‘Al Qaida’, is ‘The Base’. However, this is not the only translation of the ominous term. There is another. “Ana raicha Al Qaeda” is colloquial for “I’m going to the toilet”. A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa’ada” which mean “to sit”, pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the “Hamam Franji” or foreign toilet, and “Hamam Arabi” or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called “Ma Qa’adia” or “Little Qaeda”. Why would a terrorist group call itself ‘The Toilet’? Did Osama really choose to name his terror network after potty humor? (The CIA came up with the name and are still laughing about it to this day.)

    “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US.” ~ Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook
