News from Centcom: What extremists say

Sgt. Garth Gehlen of US Central Command e-mailed me the that a translation of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's recent video tape message to his followers, both real and imagined, is up on the Centcom site.

It's the usual type of demented verbage that his mentor, Osama bin Laden, has spews out. A sample:

To the American administration, and at its head the Crusader Bush, and those who surround him from the Jews, the Crusaders, the rejectionists, the apostates and others, we say you will not lead a life of ease in the land of Islam. By God, you will not enjoy your life for as long we still have a beating vein and a blinking eye.

Notice he says a blinking eye, not blinking eyes. Is this a coded message to the world's most famous one-eyed Taliban, Mullah Omar?
