Ah, the agonies of higher understanding! The Medium Lobster has had to endure the unenlightened voices of the American Left for the past week as they decried Iyad Allawi's address to the US Congress scarcely a month before the election, calling Allawi a "puppet," a shill for the Bush administration, an exile lackey in the service of a partisan political agenda. To which the Medium Lobster responds: of course he is. Entirely dependent on American military and financial support as he is, Allawi should feel free to dance on his strings with reckless abandon, to revel in his marionettedom. But more importantly, the Bush administration - or the Bush campaign, rather - should not hesitate to employ any foreign leader at their disposal to counter the foreign endorsements his opponent has received - namely, the terrorists.

Indeed, as Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and others have noted, terrorists "are going to throw everything they can between now and the election to try and elect Kerry." This was made obvious when the 527 group Terrorists For Kerry began campaigning for the Massachusetts senator throughout various swing states. Just yesterday at a Kerry rally in Nashua, New Hampshire, Ayman al-Zawahiri spoke to cheering throngs of Democrats, laying out a scathing attack on George Bush and firing up the base with appeals to standard Democratic issues such as universal health care, better funding for education, and the purging of crusaders and zionists with a tide of blood.

And the terrorists' plans have been working for John Kerry so far. While New Hampshirites, for example, disagreed with many of Zawahiri's stances on the slaughter of innocents, they were generally taken by his independent, "maverick" persona. In the face of these tactics, is it any wonder that George Bush would look for a little reinforcement? The Medium Lobster's advice to George Bush: surround yourself with as many foreign puppet endorsements as possible. Don't hesitate to undermine their standing in their own countries to gain their support - in fact, if need be, threaten trade restrictions, embargoes, and regime change if they don't. The price of principled independence could be a victory for the terrorists - or worse, for the Democrats.
