Bin Laden aims to bankrupt United States
Bin Laden aims to bankrupt United States. Bin Laden's original aim was probably somewhat different but after the American collective post-9/11 panic attack his new strategy makes a lot of sense. He says 9/11 cost them $500,000. With the $200bn Bush has committed for Iraq plus the $70bn he just asked for that's a ratio of 540,000 to 1. For every dollar Bin Laden spends, he can count on Bush to spend $540,000.
