So what does everyone think, is there anything in this social network stuff, will regime change etc work or can the terrorists operate independently?
Without an organization you will have a collapse of the system. All cells must be organized according to the 2nd law of thermodynamics: All
non-managed or random systems always pass to a state of greater disorder. It's how any economy works how any structure works.
If you had a lone individual out there what would be his motivation? What would be his funding, his supply, his target? The Iraqi leadership was
actually curbing terrorism not aiding it. By suppressing extreme muslims in Iraq and I do not mean by torture, the Iraqis were keeping the masses at
bay and is why they did not suffer car bombings and the like due to the fact Sadaam would kill anyone rearing up 'groups,' or activists.
The think tanks responsible for conjuring up the fantasy of destabilizing the middle east and fighting a war of terror on someone elses soil was
nothing but a theory or the 'just do something' philosophy.
There are roughly 24,000,000 people in Iraq who are 97% MUSLIM, 3% christian or other cultural religions. Iraq's two largest ethnic groups are Arabs
and Kurds. So here you have it a culture based on the teachings of Mohammed - Islam. Who is the center of Islam? Mecca and Medina where all commands
Mecca in Saudi Arabia is home to Kaaba the central shrine of Islam where all muslims on the planet pray towrds. If you live in the west you pray
towards the shrine, if you live in the east you pray towards the shrine - 5 times a day.
It is the culture in general that is not only manipulated for the purposes of evil men and men who seek revenge, but this very culture rewards those
who martyr themselves for the cause of Islam. Palestinians are paid sums of money from $5,000 and up for the martyr of themselves against Israeli IDF
soldiers. There will always be mercenaries, business directives, and a host of leeches who will utilize the martyr to express their will or take
advantage of the purpose of Islam to their own diabolical ends as we did in Afghanistan against the Russians.
The culture has been the same since 6th century C.E. The goal: convert the unbelievers and if they do not convert use the sword to kill them. So there
will never be an Islam without extreme muslims. When people say extreme that is the politically correct way of saying terrorist muslim, or muslim who
blows himself and others into oblivion.
Every year muslims make the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca to the shrine from all over the globe. The Hajj is one of the duties of Islamic faith,
requiring all Muslims to make the journey to Mecca at least once in their lifetime.
There are over one billion muslims in the world.
So back to Iraq we have a country that is 97% muslim who believe the principles of Islam and will fight to the death to enforce these principles. The
question begs how can a democratic society survive in a 97% muslim society? It cannot - the muslims will see to that if it takes them a thousand
Terrorists, or extreme muslims, will never be without logistics, huge funding, human and technical support, armamenta and above all a system of
recruiting and employment benefits to support the cause.
Moreover, terrorist cells will always be supported from Mecca and abroad as this is the cornerstone of fundamental thinking - the troops on the front
line. Young muslims will always respect the jihadists and their tales of whooping arse for the cause.
To 'misunderestimate,' as President Bush has said, the terrorists would be foolish. We have not only underestimated them but have freed an opressed
muslim society who now has in it's possession the richest country of the world buying it's huge surplus of oil and goods to fund their cause - the
cause of Islam.
