Top al-Qaida Leaders Killed — Again

By Yul

How many times do the “2 top al-Qaida leaders” have to get killed before they stay dead?

When are people going to realize that al-Qaida regenerates like a gecko’s tail? It grows new heads every time you cut one off.

And what happened to that Bush-era deck of cards with pictures of the top 52 bad guys? Did they all ever get captured or killed or, like Osama bin Laden, were the ones who got away quietly swept under the rug in hopes everybody would forget about them?

I must confess that I have such a hard time keeping the names straight, and the equally difficult nicknames they all seem to have, I can’t keep track.

Oh, great. While writing this, I just discovered another leader bit the dust.

Joe Biden called all this a “devastating blow” to al-Qaida. Yeah right, Joe. Until next Tuesday, when they have the new management team in place.

Now that we’ve supposedly got al-Qaida “on the run” and the Iraqi army is getting so adept at killing — after many years of being the only ones over there who weren’t — why should Obama wait until August to withdraw our troops? Let’s bring our soldiers home now and let the Iraqis have at it while they’re on a roll.

    Truer meows were never cat-called, Yul! You must be an under-the-blankey supporter of the Department of Peace Senator Dennis Kucinich campaigned for in 2008. It’s sad the Peace Department idea went south; however, the north may rise again–keep your whiskers up! Al Qaeda (Americanized) is not unlike any other group: if a leader falls, another “evil-doer” gladly steps up to enter the drawing for those 72 virgins. I know cats do not enjoy withdrawing from a good fight but, in this case,even Bo Obama must recoil his doggie paws and get the heck out of Dodge City (DC). Peace out, my friend, and extra treats for your undercover work in ridding our our economy of this financial burden and trying to save all victims of this filthy Dubya War.

    Suzanne, I could be head of the Department of Peace around here. Adele used to be the referee between me and Fred. Now I’M the referee between Adele and Cole. With age comes wisdom.

    Hi Yul!
    Your mom might be too young to remember this,but I am reminded of a vintage Saturday Night Live skit with Garrett Morris shouting “Generalisimo Francisco Franco is still dead!”

    Zappa’s mom

    Yul, another BBC-worthy commentary. I hope they saw this one.

    Zappa, tell your mom that not only do I remember that running Saturday Night Live gag, but it started out before Franco died, with Chevy Chase, saying on Weekend Update something like, “The Spanish Government reports that the Generalissimo’s condition is stable.” Then after Franco died, for weeks they would announce that his condition was still stable. I think that joke ran for nearly a season, and it’s what got me hooked on SNL.

    Karen here. I do remember the days of Chevy Chase on SNL, but it always came on too late for me to be watching and I rarely saw it.

    I suspect Cuba will be doing the same schtick with Fidel Castro before long, although they seem to be grooming Elian Gonzalez to fill his shoes some day, just to spit in our eye.

  6. Adele says:

    Karen, you’re absolutely right about Cuba doing the same routine about Fidel. Every so often, my friends and I, all of whom watched SNL in the early days, wonder if Fidel is with the Generalissimo yet.

    And Elian Gonzalez — now that would be truly inspired!

  7. catsworking says:

    Elian just had his 16th birthday, and they celebrate it every year like it’s a national holiday. So it wouldn’t surprise me if he doesn’t end up with some cushy job in the government in a few years. What would be a bigger slap in the face than to have the kid we agonized over sending back to Cuba to end up running it?
