Seven Nukes in US Cities al-Qaedo Warns
THE ROVING EYE
Apocalypse Now, or Alottanukes Soon By
At a time when a tape handed over to the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television
station has received widespread expose for its purported comments by Osama
bin Laden in praise of recent terror events around the world, another
al-Qaeda message released to the same station has received little coverage.
Al-Jazeera was granted an interview with one Mohammed al-Usuquf, allegedly
al-Qaeda's number three. Al-Usuquf is said to be a doctor in physics and to
hold a masters degree in international economics. A copy of the interview
was sent to the prestigious Arab-language daily Al Quds Al Arabi, edited in
London, but it was not printed.
Asia Times Online has obtained a copy of the interview, and reproduces
excerpts here, with the caveat that the identity of the man has not yet
been confirmed, nor has his membership within al-Qaeda.
Al-Usuquf says that al-Qaeda's Kuwaiti spokesman, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, and
bin Laden himself, suggested that he grant the interview. Bin Laden, he
says, is "alive and healthy, along with his commanders Mohammed Atef,
Khalid Shaik Mohammed and Mullah Omar".
Al-Usuquf starts by criticizing Washington's disrespect of the Kyoto
Protocol on climatic change, the International Criminal Court and the
Palestinian cause, as well as the "financial greed" engendering speculative
gains over Third World countries. He also criticizes the manner in which
America wastes wealth, like US$80 billion a year on gambling. "They [have]
lost the notion of spirituality and only live in sin."
For this reason, America must be destroyed, and al-Usuquf insists that
"aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and spy satellites will be worthless
in the next war".
Al-Qaeda, according to him, has 5,000 first rank operatives and around
20,000 all over the world. Of all the prisoners in the US, only "20 or 30"
are al-Qaeda, and all of them "second-rank". Confirming Asia Times Online
information, he swears that there are no first-rank prisoners in Guantanamo
in Cuba. Al-Usuquf says, "We have more than 500 first-rank and 800
second-rank [operatives] inside the US." "First rank" are considered ones
that have lived in the US for more than 10 years, most of them married with
children. "They have an idea about the plans, and they are just waiting for
a call." "Second-rank" operatives arrived in the past five years and "have
no idea about the plans". They are all willing to die.
Al-Usuquf insists that September 11 "was just the beginning. It was a way
to call the world's attention to what's going to happen." He then details a
plan to destroy the US by "attacking the heart of what they consider the
most important thing in the world: money".
"The American economy is an economy of false appearances," says al-Usuquf.
"There's no real economic weight. American GNP is something around $10
trillion, but only 1 percent comes from agriculture, and only 24 percent
from industry. So 75 percent of its GNP comes from services, and most of it
is financial speculation. For someone who understands economics, and
apparently America's Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill does not, or cannot,
the US as a whole behaves like an immense dot.com, and dollars are its
stocks. The value of stocks from a given company is directly proportional
to its profitability. When a company only provides services, but does not
produce goods, the value of its stocks depends on its credibility. What I'm
saying is if US credibility is affected, its stocks - the US dollar - will
fall at tremendous speed, and the whole American economy will collapse."
Al-Usuquf is absolutely positive, "because, in a smaller scale, this is
exactly what big financial conglomerates do with Third World countries to
collect profits in one month that no Swiss bank would guarantee in four to
five years". Al-Usuquf says that al-Qaeda could do the same by "provoking a
deficit of $50 to 70 trillion, the equivalent to five to seven years of the
GNP of the US". How? By "destroying America's seven largest cities and some
other measures". The means? "Atomic bombs." Al-Usuquf's most startling
revelation is that the bombs "won't be launched, they are already there".
"Seven nuclear heads have already been positioned on American soil, before
September 11, and they are ready to be detonated. Before September 11,
American security was a fiasco, and even later, if we needed, we could
position the bombs there. They arrived through seaports, as normal cargo. A
nuclear head is not bigger than a fridge, so it can easily be camouflaged
as one. Thousands of containers arrive at a seaport every day, and even
with very efficient security, it's impossible to check and examine each one
This attack would not knock out the US, recognizes al-Usuquf, "But the
process would be initiated. As with the World Trade Center, it would be
just a question of time for the whole economic structure to be turned to
dust. If the objectives are reached with one bomb and diseases, probably we
will save the lives of other people, but it's risky, and probably six more
bombs will be detonated, one a week, and more attacks with chemical weapons
will be launched." According to estimates made by al-Usuquf "and Ayman
al-Zawahiri", al-Qaeda's number 2, about 15 million people would die,
victims of the bombs and the radiation. Among those contaminated by
diseases, "25 percent will die, a figure around more than 5 million, plus
many others due to the chaos and disorder".
Al-Usuquf does not fear an American military response. "Even if five or 10
cities are chosen at random to be destroyed, it will still be a small price
to pay. The problem is that the economic despair will be so great that even
if it saves [money] by not using weapons, American liquidity will be near
zero, and the US will make more money selling a Nimitz-class aircraft
carrier to Turkey or Italy for $5 billion, because they will urgently need
to recapitalize. But it will be too late. Moreover, what will remain of an
American soldier's morale to fight knowing that his whole family died and
his country ceased to exist? To fight for what?"
The world economy would not collapse, says al-Usuquf, although "in the
beginning, it will be very difficult. But without the US the world will
soon rise in a more just and fraternal manner. Nothing can stop the plan."
And whatever America does, "it's too late". When will the attack begin? "I
