Leftist thinktank (sic) probes Iraq, may hopefully probe itself


The RAND corporation: Current U.S. strategy against the terrorist group al Qaida has not been successful in significantly undermining the group’s capabilities, according to a new RAND Corporation study issued today.

Hmmm. So why this? Al Quaeda forced outta Iraq, limps down to the fertile grounds of Africa.

Meanwhile, and from the same page, this: The most common way that terrorist groups end — 43 percent — was via a transition to the political process. However, the possibility of a political solution is more likely if the group has narrow goals, rather than a broad, sweeping agenda like al Qaida possesses.

Hmm, so then what?

The second most common way that terrorist groups end — 40 percent — was through police and intelligence services either apprehending or killing the key leaders of these groups. Policing is especially effective in dealing with terrorists because police have a permanent presence in cities that enables them to efficiently gather information, (RAND’s study’s lead author, Seth) Jones said.

No shit Sherlock. What do you think the US et al has been doing the past five years? Sheesh.

    Yeah, like me in a burqua. Good fucking luck with that. I’m a woman, proud to be so, and I own guns. And I’m a fucking good shot too.

    …terrorist groups end — 40 percent — was through police and intelligence services either apprehending or killing the key leaders of these groups.

    No, really?! I would have never guessed! Gee, I do hope the US know this vital fact. If they did, they would have trained Iraqi soldiers and police officers and such? What? They did?! Well, who would have known?!


Well, SAY something...
