Bin Laden has stated his goal is to impose Sharia everywhere Muslims live,
the United States. That would require destroying the US government per se,
as the destruction of many cultural practices Americans hold dear and which
important to transhuman goals, such as freedom of speech, freedom of movement
women, and any kind of banking system. So, yes, they're out to destroy the
both the political and cultural sense. Not their *whole* purpose, of course;
want Western Europe, Russia, China, etc.
Yeah, there are probably some who will settle for locking up every woman in
majority Muslim countries. Such people aren't running the show, though, and
quite bad enough anyway.
