Things keep sinking lower and lower. I just read at MSNBC.com that bin Laden has released a letter addressed to his “Muslim brothers in Pakistan” urging them to “deter with all their capabilities the American crusaders from invading Pakistan and Afghanistan.”

Why did Bush have to use the word “crusade” to describe his war of vengenace? Things were bad enough as it was, but now he has stirred up a millenium of old hurts over the evils done by the Crusaders when they “liberated” Jerusalem and the Holy Land from the “infidels.”
