Osama channels Karl Marx

Osama bin Laden's latest taped remarks have been released. ABC News has posted a transcript.

Is Osama bin Laden suffering from schizophrenia of some sort? He jumps back and forth between old-time Communist propaganda and Salafist dogma while making his threats of "surrender or die." His recitation of history is filled with errors, yet he probably believes what he says.

I suppose the anti-capitalists will always be with us, but it surely seems strange to hear the mixture of Bolshevik and Islamist rhetoric from the purported leader of our enemies.
