Plus, anyone getting paid thousands of dollars to stand around in neon suits yelling 'KILL HIM!' towards the ring was certainly a profession to look forward to." http://www.x-entertainment.com/messages/559.html

Didn't Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak also warn of "thousands" of bin Ladens that would be generated by us kicking Saddam's ever-lovin' arse? Feh.
Sounds to me like typical Islamic fundamentalist bluster. Oooohhh, all the Arab world will kill us all. We're shaking. This guy needs to be taken out, for sure, but there've been "threats" for decades about the whole region acting as one to smite the infidels...meanwhile, OPEC can't even get its nations to agree on oil production quotas.
Run your trap all you want, Hekmatyar, you Al-Qaeda terrorist scum. I'm still proud to be an American, and we're still coming to smite your ass.

Yeah we've heard it all before (bin Laden went through a phase of calling for Jihad every other Thursday and twice on Saturdays for a while) but thats not to say that there isnt something in the statement.
If we dont find any WOMD as it appears we wont in Iraq, and if things dont run smoothly in the post-Saddam era over there then Islamic attitudes toward our actions aint exactly gonna be changed for the better.
We obviously wont see another thousand bin Ladens but a hardening of anti-American/UK feelings is certainly possible and could well lead to some pretty big problems in the future, not least in any attempts to be involved in the Middle East peace process.

Obviously, I don't know - I wasn't there. But the consensus on both sides seems to be that there was a major breakdown in the chain of command when you have this many people involved in abuses like this.
