"OBL Asks Smart Questions"

I didn’t really agree with Osama’s case for tax cuts, but I have to admit that this part of his message (PDF) seems to me to be asking a good question:

Why are the leaders of the White House keen to start wars and wage them around the world, and make use of every possible opportunity through which they can reach this purpose, occasionally even creating justifications based on deception and blatant lies, as you saw in Iraq?

I don’t think bin Laden’s answer (“those with real power and influence are those with the most capital”) really makes much sense, but it really is a good question.
