According to MSNBC this morning, the new Zawahiri video promises to bring the Islamist fight to the West for as long as it takes for their religion to conquer the world. (CNN.com makes no mention of that, highlighting only the Al Qaeda leader's promise to help the Muslims in palestine and Lebanon against Israeli oppression. Bias, anyone?) According to the MSNBC report, the Terrorist said,
“The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires. ... It is a Jihad
for God’s sake and will last until (our) religion prevails,” al-Zawahri
said. “We will attack everywhere.”
That's pretty clear. I mean, many of us have known that's what we're fighting, but now we have it nice and clear from a top Islamist. We are in a war for the world. We cannot afford to lose many battles. Our very existence depends on crushing the Islamists before any more of them come here. Death to Islamists everywhere. It is -literally- kill or be killed.
Perusing one of the old Autoweek magazines I hadn't had time to read, I learned about some returns to market for well-know models or brands. Watching for the VW Rabbitshould be easy. At the $14,900 price, they'll be all over. But did you know Alfa is really returning to the U.S. market? The only Alfa model with a chance is the Spider, but if it isn't priced against the Pontiac Solstice and the Saturn Sky, I think it flops. It won't be able to compete with the Boxster and Z4 because the performance won't be there.
And who knew that China bought what was left of MG after it died with the Rover Group? (Well, anyone who keeps up with the news, I guess.) Or that they're coming back to the U.S.? And building cars in Oklahoma? I can't find a link, but that's what the July Autoweek reported.
Governor Romney long ago promised to eliminate the Sagamore rotary, and the work started years ago. It seems to be nearing completion, but every time I travel through (twice a week) the rotary is still there, with its traffic. Anyone know when it's going to be supplanted by the "fly-over"?
