Back at Jihad H.Q. Man 1: Pretty cool, huh? Tens of thousands of dead... billions of dollars in damage... our martyrs kicked butt! Man 2: Idiot! U.S. sanctions have killed millions in Iraq and Afghanistan. This didn't bring the war there- it's a drop in the bucket! Man 1: What do you suggest? Airborne biotoxins? Drinking water contamination? Hacking into norad? Hacking into Norad? Our economy's in ruins! We don't have the money! Man 2: Don't worry, we'll get teh cash. Man 1: From the Americans? Man 2: Sooner or later they'll use us against the Russians again.
