Al-Qaeda shifts into dangerous new territory

UK Telegraph, January 04, 2009

The key to success against the jihadists will always be good intelligence.

President Barack Obama’s statement on Saturday linking the failed airline bomb attack over Detroit on Christmas Day to an al-Qaeda group based in Yemen will have surprised no one. It confirmed, if confirmation were needed, that the coming decade will be as dominated as the last by the threat posed to the West by Islamist terrorism. The focus of the battle is, however, shifting. Significant successes by the United States and its allies in both Afghanistan and Pakistan have forced al-Qaeda largely to re-locate to Yemen and Somalia.

It’s a goddamn good thing he’s keeping you “safe” by upping the number of troops in AfPak to 100,000 or more and shooting handcuffed children, right?

    a little bushed this morning. How about you?

  1. talking about bringing guns to Obama rallies.

    This is what confuses me:  Left wing bloggers who criticize Obama have to be treated as grave threats to the President while these people get to bring AR-15’s to Obama rallies and events.

    Who are the real threats here?  You’d think it was all political or something (tee hee).  If one actually cared about protecting the President, or protecting the President’s person, one would seemingly care about this more than that.

    The pen is mightier than the sword?  Is that what this is about?  Sure seems like it.

    Those of us who talk about how benighted the President’s policies are or who (gasp!) dare to talk about opposing him politically — we are treated with hysteria.  While this sort of shit goes on barely remarked because, well, we expect teabaggers to be batty.

  2. Don’t destablize countries then act shocked that one of the factions emerging are Islamic fundamentalist terrorists.

    Especially if you send such people to said country for art therapy.

    It’s funny because it’s true. Yemen is fine, we are the problem.

  3. It seems to me that Al Qaeda is a mostly western term for Sunni Muslim insurgencies against the corrupt rulers and monarchs of the countries that suffer from these despots.

    Often these anti-democratic islamic countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Morroco too name a few)  are keepers  and enablers of the status quo, which is what US Transnational companies desire.

    Al Qaeda’s seeks to overthrow the transnational friendly status quo.

    All of the “terrorists are coming, run fer yer lives” schtick is a cover to hide the USA’s main action of surpressing poor, religious people’s desire to overthrow their corrupt leaders and governments.

  4. key to success against jihadism is NOT FUCKNG BEING AFRAID OF THEM.

    My apologies Edger that was not directed at you or at any other member of the DD community but again…

    Why the fuck is this country so afraid of fucking morons?

    Al Qaeda and their ilk have no attainable goal…

    They have no fucking plan…

    They are either the dumbest people ever born on this planet or the most fucking retarded….I apologize to any with real mental disabilities….

    You are ahead of Al Qaeda.

    No,I will never submit to being a follower of ANY religion.

    Let alone a doctrine of fundamentalism..

    I mean….What the Fuck?

    I assume it was you who fixed my title so it wouldn’t break the sidebar?

    Did I leave out the black ops poppy crop profit potentials?

    And isn’t that a smile of New World Order fuck you and insert your personal surveillance rectal probe/implanted mind control PC behavior electroshock device.

    And was this latest Fruit of the Boom bomber escorted onto the plane by a James Bond character.  Is it a ramp up for the war on Yemen.  This and other tazer grandma for Homeboy Stupidity stories after the commercial break.

  6. …walking point about 1 minute into the film, just after the pic of the large cargo plane.  Another baby being mutilated by war.
