The Time Square bomb plotter was sentenced to a life in prison today. He said a lot of crazy things through the sentencing, but most strikingly he said was “The defeat of the US is imminent, inshallah.” Inshallah translated means “if God is willing.” In a literal sense, it this isn’t very threatening. “You will lose, if God feels like making you lose.” “You will be defeated, if God shows up to work that day.” “You are going down, if that is what God decides. You may also not be going down. It’s a crapshoot at this point.” I guess some things are just lost in translation.
