The Taliban is on a key offensive this Spring.(cite
Wherein some are reporting that attacks are up 50 to 100 percent.
There were several people arrested in Canada with explosives, apparently in a plot to carry out serious terror attacks.
al-Zarqawi had been training operatives in Iraq to take his organization international, and carry out terror attacks across the globe.
Is this all part of the plot? Muslims aren't stupid, and just because these organizations are run and operated by zealots doesn't mean that they
are incompetent or incapable.
al-Qaida is an international organization. Is this new uptick in al-Qaida related activity part of a plan, for coordinated global attacks and
In the very old days, wars were found during the spring/summer season, it just wasn't practical to fight in the winter. So that might be what is
dictating the Taliban offensive, but, is it unreasonable to think that they are also coordinating other attacks to happen in the context of this
The Taliban aren't al-Qaida, but the two groups are heavily inter-twinned, with the Taliban leaders having been willing to suffer US invasion rather
than to hand over bin Laden. Zarqawi is overblown and has a manufactured US mythos attached to him, BUT he still was a terrorist that operated an
al-Qaida sympathetic group. Does this also mean that the Canadian terror suspects recently captured were part of an al-Qaida franchise?
Contrast this to efforts that are problaby unrelated or at least undirected by the al-Qaida structure, such as Hamas firing rockets into Israel, or
Iran making moves one way or the other on the Nuke issue. Those are organizations that seem to be independant of al-Qaida. But the Taliban, Al-Qaida
in Iraq, and perhaps these Canadian Terrorists, could they all be organs within a plot?
Has the whole plot been stopped? The Canadians were arrested, Zarqawi was at least killed, and the Taliban offensive hasn't had any success in terms
of defeating the US Army in the field.
BUT are there more to come? al-Qaida tends to have 'twin' attacks, like the embasies and 911. Is it possible that these were all the 'twin'
elements, or are there more traps about to be sprung?
