He just wants a "few of the brothers" to commit a few disparate attacks "here and there", to trigger big spending by Washington on security, while awaiting the opportunity for a major onsalught on America's homeland later, reports the Telegraph UK.
Zawahiri also wants a Muslim boycot on American and Western goods. Really? Exactly how would that work?
In his audio speech, Zawahri said Muslims should refuse to buy goods from America and its allies, as such spending only helped to fund US military action in Muslim lands. He added that Muslims should abandon the US dollar and replace it with the currency of nations that did not attack Muslims.
Zawahiri goes on to praise the Septemer 11, 2001 attacks and also the Boston marathon bombings.
Zawahiri doesn't quite have the flare that Osama bin Laden had. Not even one "death to America"?
