How Does Osama Feel About Rwanda and Sudan?

Anyone know how Osama bin Laden feels about the events that took place in Rwanda not long ago and that are taking place in Sudan right now? Is Osama obsessed with the USA and not really interested in defending the lives of innocent Muslims?

As far as Rwanda's concerned I expect he's mighty pleased with one of the outcomes.

When 800,000 of their countrymen were killed in massacres that began 10 years ago this week, many Rwandans lost faith not only in their government but in their religion as well. Today, in what is still a predominantly Catholic country, Islam is the fastest growing religion.

Rwanda: I thought that the genocide there was mostly Catholic-on-Catholic violence?

Sudan: I'm not sure that the Fur people currently being slaughtered and driven out by Arabs are Islamic enough for Osama to get all fired up about.

Yeh. With Catholics killing each other, who's left? Muslims. It's the only religion with any sort of survival rate.

But half-seriously, I think only a few people know what Osama's thinking--it's not like he has a weekly radio show or anything.
