I don't know what the big fuss is about Bin Laden reportedly going to release a new video...

Let's see, he's going to declare his hatred of the United States and Israel. He's going to promise to wreak havoc on us and the other countries which, in his mind, are too close to the Great Satan. He's going to rant about how evil and decadent we are. He's going to tweak us for not finding him (and, of course, not mentioning that the only reason he is still alive is because he spends all his time hiding in caves). He's going to declare that Islam is the true religion and non-believers should be killed. He's going to announce that due to inflation, martyrs now get 75 virgins in paradise after they blow themselves up. He's going to say things are going along just fine in Iraq.

Just as he's done before. Seen it, heard it.

Rather than spend the next few days obsessing about what he is going to say, I have a better idea. Let's ignore him. Let's let the military continue looking under rocks for him, but, other than that, let's ignore him. Let's relegate him to irrelevance.
