Deception and gaining for their cause by using it is the prime stock and trade of Al Qaeda and has been for it's entire existence. Bin Laden stated
before 9/11 that his intention was not to defeat the United States by military or armed attack. He knew that couldn't be done and said as much as I
recall. This was back around when he declared war on us and part of his advanced warnings. (They really do take that stuff seriously..and he did give
the requisite warnings..). He'd stated he'd defeat the US economically and over time. $1,000 Al Qaeda dollars spent on threats and rumors out of
Mideastern alleys would bring $1 Million in U.S. response for preparation and countering. Damned if it hasn't happened that way too...and beyond
anything I'm sure he ever dreamed.
I've heard plenty about Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah in Northern Mexico and all for the same reasons (not to say they don't have a BIG second
one). That is for the smuggling and contraband trade into the U.S. to run funding back home for their fights there. The I.R.A. did it at cocktail
parties because they were fashionable among some circles in the U.S. while these guys are doing it in the smuggling business because they're the
Same end result though...what I don't
hear about is Al Qaeda and the Sunni extremists
in Northern Mexico. I don't think the two sides
would mix well among what is already a civil war between the Cartels and the Federal Police and Mexican Military. Of course, Jihad across the Mexican
desert would add a whole new aspect to the News stories.
The main point being ... I'm not taking much of anything he says seriously or his word. From his perspective, he's a P.O.W. and misleading the "enemy"
(us) would honestly be one of his top priorities right now. Just my thoughts.
(The Shia groups in Mexico.....? I think they'll be across the border to fight here within a day or two of a war against Iran starting. It's among the
reasons I'm against it.)
