RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites here. I want you to hear Ayman al-Zawahiri — you’ll hear him in the background. It’s actually a CNN report. Nic Robertson — and I guess we could say this is Zawahiri’s prebuttal to President Bush’s State of the Union address tonight.
ROBERTSON: In many ways this is vintage Ayman al-Zawahiri, criticizing President Bush in Iraq saying, ?Why send 20,000 troops? Why not send another 50,000 or a hundred thousand–? he said, ?–they’ll be defeated anyway.?
RUSH: Yeah, taunting Bush, ?Come on, what do you mean 20,000? Give us 50, give us a hundred thousand to kill, you’re going to lose ’em anyway.? And of course the Drive-By Media was just salivating and excited as they could be over this. Who does this sound like, by the way? Ayman al-Zawahiri, ?Send us 20,000, give us 50, why not another hundred? They’ll be defeated anyway.? We have heard this somewhere before.
KERRY: You can put a hundred thousand troops in, and you can up the casualties, up the stakes, increase the violence, and not get a resolution.
RUSH: Yes! It was John Kerry, ladies and gentlemen, who served in Vietnam. This was a little over a month ago in December 2006 on the Today Show. David Gregory was interviewing Lurch, who was in Damascus, Syria, negotiating with terrorists, i.e., Bashar Assad. Gregory’s question was, ?More troops would not do enough in your estimation to shore up Baghdad, at least give the Maliki government a fighting chance?? ?You could put a hundred thousand troops in there. All you’re going to do is up the casualties.? So he, once again, on the same page with Al-Qaeda. John Kerry and the Democrats, whether they know it or not, their instincts lead them to say things that end up being parroted and repeated by Al-Qaeda as though Al-Qaeda are Democrat allies. Of course, Al-Qaeda was pushing for Democrats last November in the elections.
