New Al-Qaida video threatens the UK and US

Al-Qaida's second in command Ayman al-Zawahri has warned Britain in a video aired on Thursday that Prime Minister Tony Blair's policies will bring more destruction to London.

He also warned the United States that al-Qaida would continue to launch deadly attacks until US troops quit all Muslim countries.

"Blair's policies brought you destruction in central London and will bring you more destruction ... "

"What you have seen in New York, Washington and Afghanistan, are only the initial losses and if you (United States) continue the same hostile policies you will see what will make you forget those horrors,"

"To the people of the crusader coalition ... our blessed Shaikh Osama has offered you a truce so that you leave Muslim land. As he said, you will not dream of security until we live it as a reality in Palestine, and until all your infidel armies leave Prophet Mohammad's lands,"

"There will be no salvation until you withdraw from our land, stop stealing our oil and resources, and end support for corrupt rulers"Ayman Zawhiri,Al-Qaida's second in command"The Americans... will see horror that would make them forget the horror they saw in Vietnam,"

"The truth that (President George) Bush ... hides from you is that there is an exit from Iraq except through immediate withdrawal. Any delay will mean only more dead and losses".

"If you do not leave today, you will inevitably leave tomorrow,but only after (you suffer losses) of tens of thousands of dead and many more injured."
