Yes Gaz, those Islamic terrorists are really dumb aren't they.
Apparently so, if their actions are any indication... Even 9/11, by all means, a cleverly done attack, ended up having worse repercussions for their
The reasons given for 9/11 by those claiming responsibility, was basically US involvement in supporting Israel, and US presence in the middle east.
Answer me this, has either of those objectives been met? Or have such involvement and military presence increased?
And now they take actions which can only anger their support base (i.e. how many muslims (London has quite a few) were injured or killed in London
today? Will the assassination of a muslim ambassador hurt or help their cause?). Just assessing the intelligence as a result of their actions...
If I am somehow missing the tactical brilliance of such actions, I'd love to be enlightened...
Seriously, the insurgency wants the US out right? What's the easiest and most expedient way of doing this? Anyone? Bueller? Simple. STOP. Let
things calm down, let the US withdraw...leaving only token forces in the region. Put your people in office through elections, and dictate policy THAT
way. Instead, they are taking the Afghanistan route, hoping to simply keep piling up the body count on both sides, until the enemy is sick of it and
leaves. This ISN'T Afghanistan though. The US motives here are COMPLETELY different than the Russian ones in Afghanistan...and there is much more
at stake for the US if forced to leave.
