Ummmm, that's good satire

Transterrestrial Musings is normally the place that
Instapundit links to for space policy, he's also got some
pretty biting satire posted.

September 8, 1940

"Under Chamberlain," said one Labour backbencher, "we had peace for our time."

"Now," he went on, "under this new brutal and dictatorial Tory rule, Churchill, along with his poodle Franklin "Delanodamngood" Roosevelt, has brought this wretched war home to Whitehall itself, and ordinary Londoners."

The bombing began around four o'clock yesterday afternoon, with squadrons of German bombers blackening the skies over London, dropping many thousands of pounds of bombs on the city for two hours. A couple hours later, a second wave of bombings commenced, with the bombers' navigators guided by the fires from the first attack, with no cessation until early this morning. The fires still burn, and the total casualties have yet to be properly assessed.

Biting in the sense I immediately think "that bites how true
that is". That Hitler et al announced exactly what their plans
were, jews were to be eliminated, and all they wanted was space
to live, in other countries, without all those pesky slavs in the way.

Now, Bin Laden has been interviewed, or makes pronouncments
or Fatwas:

The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies – civilians and military – is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim. This is in accordance with the words of Almighty God: "and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together, "and fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God."

He's saying what his goal is, it doesn't need to be decoded. In
the same way that Hitler said what his plan was, but people
said it's just a metaphor, he doesn't really mean he's going to rid
Europe of the Jews. Or worse they thought it's ok if hitler takes
the Rhineland, or Chekhoslavakia, or Austria, as long as he
never attacks us.
