Bin Laden tape threatens new suicide attacks, including against Australia: "'We reserve the right to respond at the appropriate time and place against all the countries participating in this unjust war, particularly Britain, Spain, Australia, Poland, Japan and Italy,' the voice said."

"In the portion addressed to Americans, the speaker said: "I tell the American people we will continue fighting you and we will continue martyrdom operations inside and outside the United States until you stop your injustice, and you end your foolishness." Addressing US troops in Iraq, the speaker said: "Your blood will be spilled so the White House gang gets richer and the arms dealers with them, as well as the large companies involved.""

""America is bogged down in the quagmire of the Tigris and the Euphrates (rivers)," the speaker on the tape said. "(America) is in real trouble, God willing, and is today screaming at the top of its lungs and bowing before the whole world ... and calling for help from the lowest of people." Bush "thought that Iraq and its oil is an easy treasure", the voice said, adding that it had now "resorted to buying mercenary fighters from East and West", calling its war in Iraq a "new Crusade on the Muslim world...a decisive war for the whole nation"."
