Looks like John McCain and the American people aren’t the only ones unimpressed by The Surge:

Al Qaeda’s deputy leader on Monday mocked President Bush’s plan to send more than 20,000 additional troops to Iraq, challenging him to send the “entire army” and vowing that insurgents would defeat them, according to a new videotape released by an American group that tracks messages from Al Qaeda.

(…)

In the tape, Mr. Zawahri said the United States strategy for Iraq, outlined by Mr. Bush in a speech on Jan. 9, was doomed to fail.

“I ask him, why send 20,000 only — why not send 50,000 or 100,000?” Mr. Zawahri says on the video released by SITE. “Aren’t you aware that the dogs of Iraq are pining for your troops’ dead bodies?

“So send your entire army to be annihilated at the hands of the holy warriors to free the world from your evil,” he continues, “because Iraq, land of the caliphate and jihad, is able to bury 10 armies like yours, with God’s help and power.”

That’s some pretty good trash talk right there.
