As the New York Times, and others, continue the debate about whether its really al Qaeda we’re fighting in Iraq, or just some loose network of radicals with no centralized command-and-control, somewhere in the bowels of his plush subterranean digs in Waziristan, Usama bin Laden laughs, then he cranks up his generator and pops in the next DVD in his favorite movie series, Star Wars.

Until we, in the West, understand why Mr. Bin Laden loves Star Wars, we cannot effectively fight a “war on terror.”

    Awash in his own delusion, this latter-day devil slaughters his own soldiers and allies — failing to see the danger in a house divided against itself.

    Do our own forces of darkness and defeat in Congress not see the parallels to themselves?

    WV: Albert Mrs — I think that her name is Tipper and that she and her hubby were the inspiration for Love Story. His real first name is Fat, but he allows Tipper to call him her Jolly Green Giant. Ho, ho, ho!

    Usama comes within hailing distance of the truth only in that his little underground domain imitates Mos Eisley:

    “Mos Eisley is a primitive city of Tatooine, so far on the outskirts of the Galactic Republic that many laws are ineffective and useless, as there are almost no Government Officials or forms of Law Enforcement. Slave trade is a common business, and the city is run by Organized Crime.”

    The phrase “wretched hive of scum and villainy” defines UBL’s caves just as it does the fictional spaceport.
