Copts Die under Egypt's Military Thumb

September 30 A mob of 3000 Muslims from the radical Islamist sect known as the Salafi descended upon the Mar Gerges Church in the town of Elmarenab, in the Upper Egyptian province of Aswn. The object of the mob was to burn the Coptic Christians out of the church and slaughter them as they fled the burning building. After setting the church a blaze the mob held back the first responders by blocking the streets. Along with the church 4 homes and 2 business were burned and looted.

The mob was successful in holding back the emergency  personnel responding to the violence and fires. The group raped Coptic women and and girls and severely beat the men and boys after the carnage was over 300 people lay wounded and bleeding another 28 were killed. The Salafi where convinced of a rummer that a Muslim girl was being held in the church against her will being forced to convert to Christianity. The rummer proved to be false.

In response to the blatant prejudice and sectarian violence perpetrated on the Christians and the lack of action on the part of the government, a protest was organized on October 9th.

The Coptic Christian demonstrators planed there protest to take place in front of the state run TV station in the town of Maspero just south of Cairo. Official from the TV station called in the military and the demonstration quickly got out of hand. This time 27 people died, not from the knives and swords of radical islamists but by the hand of the military. In an attempt to deflect the blame away from the soldiers the generals have claimed that the bloodshed was the work of provocateurs, however mmilitary vehicles were filmed running down protesters.

It is a common practice for radical Islamist nations to point their fickle finger of fate at the out side agitator(Israel). Saddam Hussein did it, Halfass and son of Halfass Bashier al Assad did it,  Iranian Presidents Rafsanjani and Imadinnerjacket did it even the Turks blamed Israel for their internal atrocities. They all do it, they have meetings on how to do it, a group of them get together and plain how there going to kill their own people and than blame the Jews. (Ya ya that’s the ticket blame the Jews the rest of the world will buy that, PUTZES) End comment.
Finally Pope Benedict XVI has inserted himself into the situation and apparently he got the ball rolling with the pin headed Human Rights Watch from New York and the London-based rights group Amnesty International Even Rupert Colville the UNs High Commissioner for Human Rights is now involved. Of course each one of these factions has their own agenda and naturally being divided in their efforts their will be nothing accomplished.

The Egyptian Military leadership has kicked their spin machine into high gear and is in ass covering mode with officials such as General Adel Umara, who stated at a news conference that the army did not purposely run over any protesters and if any people were run over than it was either “a mistake or in was some outside faction trying to undermine the Egyptian revolution.” When asked about the death of  Mosaad Ibrahim Mosaad, a young Coptic activist that was  killed by a gun shot wounds. The General responded by saying that the army "did not have live bullets." Sounds like something an American government agency would say (BATF). End comment. The family is demanding that some be held accountable for shooting their son.

Coptic religious leaders are now warning their congregations that the military my be in cahoots with the radical Islamists. Following the bloodbath in Maspero state run TV issued a statement demanding that the public "protect" the military from the Coptic masses. Most of the Coptic demonstrators seemed to share the opinions of their religious leaders, as they have been chanting outside the TV station, “the military and the Salafists are one hand,” implying that the military had allied with extremist Islamist groups against the Copts.

American government officials have been in the ass covering business as well denying the existence of any extreme islamist groups within the current Egyptian governmental structure. The position of the Obama Administration is one of see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil about the radical factions such as the Muslim brotherhood that now infest the Egyptian government.

On June 16th 2011 a staff writer for the Obama administration,
Stephen Kaufman issued this press release

“Online Activists Receiving U.S. Technical Support, Training”

Washington — By the end of 2011, the United States will have spent $70 million over the past few years to promote Internet freedom around the world.

The funding has included investments in technologies to help people circumvent strict firewalls. Also included has been training for activists in new programming and helping them understand the online risks they are facing.

“People are exercising their human rights online, and we’ve become more conscious of the various ways that repressive regimes are using technology themselves to limit and punish people for the exercise of those rights,” said a senior State Department official, who asked not to be identified.

Speaking to reporters in Washington June 15, the official said the Obama administration has made Internet freedom a priority. Universal human rights principles protect freedom of assembly, peaceful dissent and the ability to speak your mind, the official said, and every country is obliged to honor them.

“I suspect that there are governments that wished that we weren’t investing in this way,” the official said. But governments that respect the rights of their citizens “have nothing to fear in free speech” or from a free Internet, the official said.
At the same time, those who are working to undermine Internet freedom through tactics such as firewalls, censorship and network shutdowns are losing the battle.

“The advent of these modern communications technologies means that nothing can be swept under the rug anymore. … And that’s something that governments are having to reckon with,” the official said.

The State Department supports more than 12 different types of circumvention technology to help people get around firewalls, and has employed what the official described as a “techie-without-borders” service to develop new programming and to “be responsive to the ongoing challenges of people who are trying to call out the problems in their societies and give voice to their own future.”

“One of our jobs is to keep the broader picture in mind, keep focused on people, keep responding to people on the ground and to stay ahead of the curve in terms of the innovations of repression, so that we can help people on the ground be innovating their expression at the same time,” the official said.

Funding has supported training for more than 5,000 digital activists, democracy activists and human rights advocates around the world who now distribute the technology and know-how they learned to their peers.

The training also helps them to “understand exactly what risks remain and what risks can be addressed,” the official said, including identifying viruses and keylogger software that records whatever they type.

The State Department initiative has shifted much of its focus toward mobile phone technology, due to the extremely high penetration of mobile phones and text messaging around the world, in contrast to the relative lack of available Internet service. But many are not aware of the risks they face when they send texts, the official said.

“There’s been a myth that if you send [a text message], it’s safe and no one can track you, but if you send an email, that can be monitored. And that’s just not true,” the official said.
“Some of the things that we’re funding are mobile communications to make mobile communications safe and so that people can send secure text messages or can do other things, because … they’re not sitting at their desktops. But they also don’t necessarily have the proper information about how to use these tools safely.”

The official said that when people are able to speak freely, they tend to discuss the kind of society they want to live in and how they feel their country should be governed.

“Our goal is to make sure that we are doing what we can to amplify the voices and create the space for free expression and freedom of association and assembly online, regardless of who the group is,” the official said.

So lets take this press release for what it is and what it represents. This is the Obama  administration admitting to espionage. As previously reported on this blog site the Obama White House has enlisted the help of non-governmental organizations (NGO) To help facilitate the eradication of existing Middle Eastern Governments. As with any reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction. In the case of Egypt the reaction to the Mubarak overthrow has been one of violence by the extreme radical Muslim community. What we are witnessing now in Egypt is just the tip of a very large iceberg. If the CIA annalists did not see this coming then we need to clean house in Langley, if they did and informed the White House of the potential shitstorm then the White House is to blame. (I believe it to be the latter.) End comment. The information that is leaking out of the Obama administration has gone far beyond scandalous, what we are learning now is that criminal behavior is SOP at 1600.

The $70 million figure in the letter is grossly understated if the funding dedicated to the “democratization” projects is added in from USAID, MEPI, and CIA then the figure balloons well over the $100 million mark. These Middle Eastern overt/covert projects have been going on for years and extend back into the Bush Administration. Documents proving the existence of such projects go back to 2006 but not till the Obama administration has such an emphasises been placed on the potential coup uprisings in the North African/Arab region. It is clear that Obama and Clinton did not fire the gun that killed Qaddafi or swung the knifes that killed the Coptic Christians But they bought the guns, knives and bullets and facilitated the carnage that has run rampant among the sick twisted freaks that make up the Muslim world.

Mexicans Eat Garbage

The Mexican president Felipe Calderon has blamed the violence in Mexico on the American apatite for illicit drugs. It is true that the consumption of these drugs in the US is a problem but is it the only reason that Mexico has been under siege by drug cartels for the past decade. For more answers to the the Mexican problem the Mexicans must look inward and to the south. Calderon In an interview with the BBC before the 2009 G-20 summit, responded to charges that his country is becoming a failed state due to drug cartel activity.

The president cautiously admitted that there is a drug problem, but placed most of the blame on his country's geographic proximity to the world's largest drug market: the United States. More blame falls on the US as well: for allowing weapons to flow across the border. And Calderon theorizes that US corruption is also partly to blame. He theorizes that if corruption allows drugs on the Mexican side of the border, it also must be true that corruption in the U.S. has something to do with the continuing passage of narcotics into that country.

Calderon may be acknowledging there is a internal problem but insists that the US is mostly to blame. The fact that the Mexican police forces and politicians receive more drug money in one month than they receive in salary for 5 years. Maybe the the fact that the drug cartels have taken control over corporations, the judicial system and state governments has slipped his mind. Mexico is at the point of operating as a failed state with an underground economy that represent 12% of the GDP. The Mexicans are continuously crying to the US for more and more money for drug eradication. The fact is that Mexico spends less of their own money on cartel interdiction activities than Perue, Columbia and Bolivia. The problem in Mexico is not just corruption within their own ranks but their southern neighbors have problems of their own.

The Salvadoran National Police reported on October 12th, 2011 that records through August 2011 showed that 232 police officers were implicated in criminal activity in 2011. Fourteen of those are charged with homicide, but most were involved with lesser crimes, including robbery, reckless driving and making threats. 

Colombian anti-narcotics police destroyed six tons of hydrochloride cocaine and 120 tons of precursor chemicals at a cocaine laboratory allegedly belonging to the paramilitary group Popular Revolutionary Anti-terrorist Army of Colombia (ERPAC), in Porto Gaitan, in the Meta department of the Eastern Plains, on 14 October 2011. Equipment discovered at the lab, which could produce up to 800 kilos of cocaine a week, is worth around US$2.6 million. 

On 10 October 2011, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala dismissed 30 of 45 police generals, including the National Director of the Police, in order to combat corruption. Corruption among police has led to an increase in drug trafficking in Peru, the world’s largest producer of coca leaf and second largest producer of cocaine.

At the root of Mexico's problem is the 60 million people living in poverty, 20 million of them live in extreme poverty. Most of the time, garbage is their only food, and some days, they don’t even eat anything. Drug smuggling, human trafficking and marijuana cultivation is the only source of income in the severely depressed rural locations in Mexico. The socialist polices of the past have left a legacy of poverty stemming from poorly run government infrastructure and education systems. Half of the Mexican population is illiterate and unemployable. This situation is the biggest obstacle in the war on drugs and it is not just a Mexican problem. The 7 Central America countries have a literacy rate of 80% however the average income for a person in the region is slightly over $1500.00 per year, with Nicaragua at the bottom end of the scale at $340.00 per year.

the international drug cartels will flourish unless the governments of these countries recognise that the underground economy is not the only means the poor have of supporting themselves. Investment in manufacturing and agriculture may help lift the standards in these banana republics to the point of self succulency. As it stands right now the economic problems in these countries is effecting the populations in North, South and Central America and no amount of guns, bullets and incarceration will stem the problem and the war on drugs continues.

Soldiers Bolt in Syrian Revolt

Syrian soldiers carrying fallen comrades

The army and security forces are not dropping there guns and running into Turkey as previously reported but are turning there rifles in the direction of Damascus. The Dictator Basher al Assad has lost control over portions of his military. Thousands of Sunni Muslim soldiers that were called up from the Golan Heights to reinforce the fighting in the Syrian north are refusing to fire on the civilian populations. Other soldiers that have defected the ranks earlier and went into Turkey are regrouping and recruiting for an offencive against forces still loyal to Assad. The confederate force of Sunnis numbers in the thousands some estimates are between 25 and 30 thousand.

Meanwhile in Istanbul exiled Syrian opposition leaders continue to talk turkey with anyone who will listen. They have formed the “Syrian National Council” (SNC) in an attempt to bolster support from the UN EU and the GCC however the support coming from the UN has been nothing more than lip service. Proposals offered to the security council by the the US in conjunction with other countries have been blocked by Russia and China, with abstentions from Brazil, India, South Africa, and Lebanon.

With this new political movement afoot designed to replace Assad with a interim government of Syrian ex-patriots. The revolting Syrian forces now have further incentive to turn against their Alawite commanders and form a opposition guerrilla force strong enough to topple Assad. The SNC has received covert funding from Saudi Arabia, Israel and the US as well as logistical support from the Lebanese political movement “March 14”. Covert sources inside Lebanon have revealed an ongoing operation to smuggle guns and ammunition to the newly formed Syrian opposition. The smuggling operation was uncovered recently by Lebanese army investigators that intercepted a truckload of weapons destine for the revolting guerrilla forces in the Syrian city of Baniyas. The source of the weapons is unclear but speculations are that the guns came from an Iranian shipment. The guns bound for Syrian security forces at the port of Lattakia were interdicted by the Turkish Navy.

With Damascus being propped up internationally by Russia and China by way of cash and weapons Assad has some level of reassurance that he will not be thrown to the SNC wolves barking at his door from Istanbul. Syria’s long time friend Iran seams be be giving Assad unwavering support as well. This was recently demonstrated by the assassination plot and embassy bombings on the Saudi ambassador to the US and Israeli embassy in Brazil. The covert bombings and assassination attempts will continue from Tehran as retaliation for intercepted weapons, ammunition and supplies going to Syria from Iran. Tehran is also looking to expand their sphere of influence over the aria and targeting the west with terrorist plots is in there twisted unsophisticated minds a show of force against the Grate Satan.

The deserting soldiers are forming up in smaller groups in several areas on the outskirts of Homs, Rastan and Baniyas. It is unclear if the troops have secure communications to form a cohesive force necessary for a large scale attack. So far the hit and run attacks on government forces have been sporadic and uncoordinated. These attacks how ever small have demonstrated to Assad loyalists that further Sunni regulars will be bolting from there ranks. The seeds of civil war in this respect have been planted and with Political support coming from the SNC in Istanbul and the weapons, ammunition and financial support coming from The Sadie's GIP, the American CIA and the Israeli Mossed the opposition have a good chance of succeeding.

Syrian Army defectors have crossed into Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan along with thousands of refugees that have been forced from there homes by the troops loyal to Assad. Some of the Junior officers that have defected recounted that more of the army rank and file will be bolting as soon as a good opportunity presents itself. According to one Lieutenant  when an engagement takes place the army privates spearhead the movement followed by the security forces and if the privates refuse to shoot when ordered by superiors, the security forces shoot the army privates in the back.

For a successful opposition outcome to a Syrian Civil War the soldiers of the “Free Officers Movement” and the “Free Syrian Army” movement must unify and start consolidating their forces that are scattered throughout the multi-nation aria. This can be achieved by utilizing the  secure communications structure of the Turks and directed out of a command and control center previously set up by the Turkish military to direct air and ground assets.The city of Aleppo will be key in the success of the movement. Capturing the rail lines linking the Turkish city of Kilis with the Syrian cities of Aleppo,Hama, Homs and Damascus this line bisects the entire country and is key in the transportation of goods and people on the north south axis of the country. All other rail lines intersect the north south line linking the Mediterranean city of Lattakia and the country Lebanon with all points to the east including Iraq. American and Turkish Navel assets could be employed for the blockade of Syrian ports isolating the country from the Mediterranean, of course cooperation from the Lebanese and Israelis will be helpful but not critical. With outside support the opposition movement will have an excellent chance of ejecting the Assad regime from power. Heavy diplomatic negotiations will be necessary to hold off the Russians and Chinese as Syria and Iran are premium military customers. China and Russia presently operate logistical centers in the respective embassies giving the Syrian government logistical advise on sanction evasion, Internet propaganda, media control and weapons smuggling.
Dead Iraqi Kurds

Assad may soon feel boxed in with the mounting international pressure of sanctions that are having an effect on the countries ability to function. In such a situation there is no telling what moves he may next. The scorched earth policy that has been employed in the cities of Homs and Huma have strengthened the resolve of the population rather than subordinate them. The home invasions conducted by the security forces across the country killing entire families in the house-to-house slaughter have had a repulsive effect on the military. The military continues to brake ranks and defect to the opposition weakening the dictators grip over the population. Hundreds of thousands of people have been detained, tortured and subsequently disappeared. So what is next in the Assad bag of tricks. The dictator just may think the unthinkable and brake out the bio/chem weapons and perpetrate a crime against humanity that the world has not witnessed since Saddam Hussein gassed the Iraqi Kurdish people in 1988 killing 5000 at one time.

Syria's population is 90% Muslim--74% Sunni, and 16% other Muslim groups, including the Alawi, Shi'a, and Druze--and 10% Christian. There also is a tiny Syrian Jewish community. The Syrian armed forces are a direct reflection of the population demographics with the Sunnis making up the bulk of the troops and the Alawiats are mostly in upper level command positions. There is quite a bit of animosity between the Sunnis and Alawits thus leaving the potential for large numbers of bolting troops, President Bashar al Assad is Alawi.

Of course the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei will not sit back and watch the Syrian events play out on TV but he will instruct is puppy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to get more actively involved in the situation. The neanderthals in Tehran will see the civil war along sectarian lines and support the Alwai minority as the Alawi and the Shi’a are closely aliened in the mixed-up Muslim mind. To put it in to a western perspective the Sunni are to the Alawi/Shi’a like the Catholics are to the Protestants in Northern Ireland.

The countries demographics do not work in favor of Assad and this civil war will come down to a sectarian conflict. The wild cards in the conflict will be the screwballs in Hamas and Hezbollah along with Lebanese fringe groups that may join Assad or turn against Israel. There is question that Syria is a powder keg but the fuse has been lit. The world seems to have other things on the burner right now with the drug cartels in Mexico reeking havoc in the Americas to the European dept crises. There is obviously the preoccupation of the president in the US with administration malfeasance regarding the Fast and Furious operation, the Solyndra pay for play scandal and the presidential legitimacy issue with Obamas birth certificate. One thing is for sure Syria is a giant shit sandwich and the entire Middle East is at the lunch counter.

Islamic Democracy or Anarchy

Islamic Democracy or Anarchy? is it possible to have a Islamic democracy, well we are seeing the results right now in Egypt. What is happening in Egypt today is the action of a society that has been freed from the constraints of a autocratic ruler that has suppressed the population for decades. This suppression has served to protect the nations minorities ensuring their security. Once the constraints were removed  the popular views of the majority took over in the form of mob rule or anarchy. The people of the Middle East are a under educated rabble equating anarchy with democracy in the fact that the majority rules and if the majority rules than anything that the majority participate in must be acceptable. And currently the temporary military government has condoned the actions of the populous by ignoring the sectarian discrimination and violence against the Coptic minority.

The American people have been convinced by their political leaders that a democratic Middle East is a step forward in the cultural ascension of the Islamic world. This so-called Arab spring democracy movement has done nothing for ascending the Middle Eastern populations, the contrary has been proven and digressed the populous deeper into their intolerant Islamic fundamentalist past . Americans equate Democracy with the ideals inherent in the society in which they live there lives. These fundamental human rights or  "self-evident" truths that Thomas Jefferson out lined in the Declaration of Independence are the underpinning of the tolerant American society. For a politician to infer that the people of Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya or Yemen are capable of understanding these unalienable rights is irresponsible and demonstrates their political incompetence. It is naive to think that a culture embedded in the principles of Islamic Sharia law can understand the simple concept of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
What we are witnessing in the Middle East is a devolving population that is only capable of rudimentary social behavior and that is incapable of absorbing the basic values of modernism and democracy. For these reasons Arab and Islamic leadership are reactionary, neopatrimonial coercive, and authoritarian in order to keep control over the barbarous masses. Such basic principles as personal sovereignty, individualism, personal liberty and freedom of expression weaken the fundamentalist Islamic state. Individuals that are endowed with the rights and freedoms inherent in democracy undermine the cultist Islamic belief system that is rooted in fantasy and mysticism and is the basis of Sharia law.

The country of Turkey is a Islamic state however it is secularised  and the government may be influenced by Islamic values but is restricted in the interference into peoples lives, actions and thoughts. The personal freedoms afforded the Turkish citizenry are not typical of all Islamic countries. Women in Turkey have a much higher social and economic status than any other Islamic country. Turkish women are not dictated to by the government in terms of their activities, employment, dress or behavior. Turkey is truly a bridge between European liberal attitudes and the repressive societies of the Middle Eastern Islamic states.

Two of the countries in the region that have a chance at a western style form of government is Libya and the other Syria. The Libyan and Syrian people have had direct participation in the overthrowing and destruction of the dictatorial political machines through prolonged confrontation. Therefor each person feels as though they have made a difference in there own future and there countries destiny. Another reason is that prior to the revolt the standard of living and education among the general populous had been far better than their Islamic  neighbours. Regarding the radical Islamist elements, they are small in number among the many moderates that joined the uprisings against Qaddafi and Assad. It is noteworthy that both the Libyans and Syrians are generally moderate and non-combative with moderate views in the practice of Islam. With the ousting of Qaddafi in Libya the radical elements within that country have receded and are regrouping. Organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood traditionally have demonstrated restraint and patients and have been incremental in there influence over populations. In Syria with the Assad regime still firmly ensconced radical instigators are somewhat more verbose in there bloviations. The Grand Mufti Ahmad Badreddine Hassoun, a Syrian state-appointed cleric and Assad loyalist, issued a clear warning to the Americans and Europeans recently by stating this to a gathering of Islamic women.

"I say to all of Europe, I say to America, we will set up suicide bombers who are now in your countries, if you bomb Syria or Lebanon,"
"From now on an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."
"Don't come near our country, I beg you,"

Why are so many American Democratic politicians willing to draw parallels between Islamism and democracy? The general political popularity of ones self within the Democratic political environment inclines the politicians to accommodate Islamism in an effort to be inclusive of all groups. Political correctness inhibits many politicians regardless of their country of addressing the detrimental aspects of foreign cultures for fear of being ostracized. Therefore it is considered palatable to prove the compatibility of Islam and democracy. Groups such as CAIR and the MSA will paint you with the Islamophobic brush and declare you a racist if you suggest the incompatibility of Islamism and the western civilization. The lawmakers in there respective political circles continuously seek to find common ground between the Islamic troglodyte and the educated constituent in an effort to unite the
two cultures. Ultimately this is not possible, the Muslim either refuses to accommodate an alternate point of view or does not have the intellectual capacity to do understand the concept of a modern culture that strives to work for the future. The Sooner the Western political leaders realize that they have made a mistake in accommodating the Islamic countries and there social policies the better off the world will be. The only thing that has dragged these Bedouin potentates out of the desert and into the halls of Princeton,Oxford and Harvard is the discovery of oil that the western countries generously helped them exploit. With the upper-class in the Middle East continuously repressing there underclass there will never be a educated populous capable of casting a educated vote. This will result in the perpetuation of religious persecution and anarchy.

AQAP Propagandists Dead

Two of our beloved brothers in the struggle of the profit  have been mattered by the oppressive imperialist fist of the Great Satan. The Great Satan will drawn in it’s own blood as the brothers and sisters of Mohammad take up the sword of the profit and cut the heart form the Great Satan. Praise be to Allah bla bla bla. So it goes from these neanderthals.

That’s right the chief propagandists for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Anwar al Awlaki and Samir Khan a pair of disaffected Americans have been whacked by a UAV strike in Yemen. BY now anybody who is a casual news watcher knows about al Awiaki but Khan has been somewhat under the radar. This ideologue and spokesman for (AQAP) the al Qaeda outgrowth in Yemen, was a bonus in the UAV airstrike on Sept. 30 that targeted al Awlaki. The air strike happened near the town of Khashef in Yemen’s al-Jawf province. The convoy that was attacked took out seven people. A senior tribal chief said who helped bury the bodies in a cemetery in Jawf. The chief said, their bodies were totally charred, he added that the brother of one of the dead had given the group shelter in his home prior to the missile attack and had witnessed the strike. According to the chief, the witness said the terrorists were travelling in a pick-up truck on their way to the neighboring province of Marib. The group stopped for breakfast in the desert and were sitting on the ground to eat when they spotted the drones. Realizing that the jig was up they rushed to their truck in an attempt to get away. The missile struck the pick-up, leaving it a charred husk and killing all inside. The chief spoke on condition of anonymity as he did not want to be connected to the group, he also refused to identify the witness, who was allied with AQAP.

Samir Khan, was the creator and editor of AQAP’s Inspire propaganda magazine directed at the American audience. The assassination of al Awlaki and Khan may in time be more important than the waxing of Osma Bin Laiden because of the radicalization effect that they had on the American Muslims that are teetering on the jihad fence.

To put the deaths of these two malcontents into perspective one first must first appreciate the effort involved in producing the online Inspire propaganda magazine. (If this blogger had the skills that Khan had exhibited in the production of Inspire magazine then this blogger could easily translate those skills into a six figure career.) (end comment)

The deaths of both al-Awlaki and Khan will certainly divert al Qeda propaganda activities into the slow lane at least for the short term. As fare as replacements for Khan it will be next to impossible to find a person in the Arabian Peninsula that could fit the bill. The FBI should be looking for collage educated Muslim professionals that are on the fridge of society and that are expressing radical beliefs in the Muslim community. I am sure that AQAP operatives in North America are already developing a strategy of replacing al Awlaki and Khan. For maximum effectiveness  American borne English speakers that possess the qualities needed of charisma computer graphics and editorial skills can only be found in the US or Canada. Therefore the FBI and RCMP MUST be proactive in their investigations of US and Canadian Islamists that may possess these qualities. Background investigations starting at the high school level of persons of Middle Eastern decent or birth should already be underway. This is of paramount importance to keep the radical fundamentalists propaganda efforts to a minimum. A good starting point would be (MMO)’s militant Muslim organizations especially organizations seeking to conduct transnational media and ideological operations.

The MMO with multinational intentions for the purpose of inciting terror activities such as AQAP posses several components necessary to conduct successful operations. These components are finance, logistics, planning, training and intelligence. These components are not only dedicated to propaganda activities but serve to support the activities of the house to house militant fighter both foreign and domestic. If we are to breakout the fighters into categories then we may be able to more understand the concept that AQAP has adopted. Weather it is the grass roots terrorist in the US or the battlefield gunman in Afghanistan they have to start somewhere after all Islamic terrorists don’t not pop out of the womb with AK47s in there hands. Without the propaganda and indoctrination of the individual with Islam being the foundation Osama Bin Laden would not have the operatives necessary to carry out the kind of operations that he had dreamed up in his sick mind. The Inspire Magazine did this on several levels in North America by the use of propaganda in vernacular that could be understood by the young Muslim in north America. Target acquisition and planing was also in the magazine. One issue described running down people at a mall during a holiday or a weekend to ensure maximum body count by using a pick-up truck with butcher knives welded to the bumper, another issue had an article titled “ How to build a bomb in the kitchen of your mom” nice stuff. (Dad beware who your Little girl dates) (End comment) 

In addition to the instruction on committing terror activities, handling a AK-47 and planing attack strategies on shopping malls. The ideological component of Inspire is vitaly important as it acts as a facilitator to recruit new members and maintaining the radical mind set of those previously indoctrinated. The propaganda in some cases is targeted to the radical fundamentalist and is filled with vitriol while other articles are targeted to the casual jihadist, each approach shapes the target audiences perception through persuasion. Issue # 7 of the 2011 Inspire was rolled out several days prior to the missile attack that offed Khan and al-Awlaki, that issue contained an article written by Khan titled “The Media Conflict,” and he quoted AQAP leader Nasir al-Wahayshi (aka Abu Basir) as stating, “media work is half of the jihad.” If you have ever seen news reels produced by the US War Department from the 1940s about WWII you will see the perfect example of what Khan was getting at.

There is a propaganda opinion piece written by Yahya Ibrahim in issue # 5 of the 2011 Inspire magazine soft peddling the al Qeda position. I have reprinted the article in its entity hear.

The cover of this issue is about the Tsunami of change that is sweeping the Arab world. With the removal of the despots, the ummah will speak its voice, and when it does, it will chant: Here we start and in al-Aqsa we’ll meet. The biggest barrier between the mujahidin and freeing al-Aqsa were the tyrant rulers. Now that the friends of America and Israel are being mopped out one after the other, our aspirations are great that the path between us and al-Aqsa is clearing up. There could be no freeing of Palestine with the presence of the likes of King Abdullah to the East, Hosni Mubarak to the West and al-Saud to the South. Now that Hosni is gone, we heard the Imam of the Friday prayers praying: “O Allah we ask you to allow us to meet in al-Aqsa,” and the millions in Tahrir square roared with one voice: Âmîn. The issue of Palestine is central to the Muslim ummah and now that the masses have spoken, there is no doubt that it will be back to the forefront. The friends of the West are leaving, the issue of Palestine will be back on the table, the preaching of jihad for the defense of the Muslim ummah will be heard publicly in societies that have freed themselves from the tyrants, and we pray that the heavy handed security measures imposed by the despots to keep America and its allies safe and keep their populations terrorized will be over. The West has publicly stated its support for the revolution of the masses. But do they really mean it? Or is it because they do not realize the reality of what is happening? Or is it just because they feel that they must join the bandwagon? The West also believes that the revolts are bad for al Qaeda. This is not the case. Why would the freedoms being granted to the people be bad for al Qaeda? If freedom is so bad for al Qaeda, how come the West has been practicing a restriction on the freedoms of expression when it comes to the message of the mujahidin? Why does the West ban the spread of books and talks of the al Qaeda leadership and in some countries consider it to be a crime to be in possession of such material? Why did the U.S. request from a site such as YouTube to take off lectures by Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki? Another line that is being pushed by Western leaders is that because the protests in Egypt and Tunisia were peaceful, they proved al Qaeda – which calls for armed struggle – to be wrong. That is another fallacy. Al Qaeda is not against regime changes through protests but it is against the idea that the change should be only through peaceful means to the exclusion of the use of force. In fact Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri spoke in support of the protests that swept Egypt back in 2007 and he alluded to the fact that even if the protests were peaceful, the people need to prepare themselves militarily. The accuracy of this view is proven by the turn of events in Libya. If the protesters in Libya did not have the flexibility to use force when needed, the uprising would have been crushed. It is our opinion that the revolutions that are shaking the thrones of dictators are good for the Muslims, good for the mujahidin and bad for the imperialists of the West and their henchmen in the Muslim world. We are very optimistic and have great expectations of what is to come.

Clearly this article was intended as an open letter to American Muslims that maybe considering a carer in the al Qaeda mujahidin. More to come on this in the next post.

If you would like me to reprint the article from Inspire magazine written by Samir Khan entitled " I am Proud to be a traitor to America" let me know in your comments.

AFPAK Storm is Brewing

Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari is getting real cozy with the Iranians supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamene lately. He is also cuddling with Hamid Karzai Afganistans number one. For the last several years Karzai has been trying to foster a relationship with Tehran but not till recently has the relationship blossomed. The Iranians are seeking  to swap spit with the two AFPAK leaders in hopes of wooing them away from under Obama’s prom dress.

Karzai has been having a love hate relationship with Obama much like a divorced woman who rejects her husband but needs his financial support. In 2009 Pesident Karzai was implicated in a money laundering scam that was centered around the Kabul Bank. This Bank was handling all the transfers from US aid sources and the bank was involved in the washing of counterfeit Afghan Currency and drug profits. The Karzai government was skimming millions of dollars daily for cash payments to government officials and Taliban fighters based in Pakistan to ensure the delivery of goods from the port of Karchi. A team of US money laundering experts from the FBI, DEA, Treasury and Pentagon uncovered the scam in 2009. The team known as the Afghan Threat Finance Cell, worked out of the US embassy and reported there findings to Washington via secure communication. The Obama administration kept the operation, the finance cell and their results secret. Along came Wikileaks and the whole thing was uncovered and Karzai was pissed when he found out that his government had been exposed in a criminal enterprise large enough to finance a war and a small country. It was Karzai that was financing the Taliban through the Kabul Bank. This was done to prolong the war and keep the USAID money flowing.The end result was that US Tax payer dollars funded the Taliban to fight the Afghan soldiers and the US forces. When this discovery made the news it started Karzai’s divorce proceedings with Obama. Then when Obama announced the troop draw down this summer that was the last straw for Karzai, he was on the prowl for a new sugar daddy.
The Pakie Pres in his relationship with Obama has resorted to coercion and extortion as an attempt to garner more US funding. In February of 2010 Pakistanie President Zardari discussed means for funding a road through the northern Chitral region of Pakistan to Tajikistan with special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke. Zardari pointed out that the road would further integrate Pakistan with Central Asia making his country more self sufficient.  However Zardari was insistent that Pakistan needed $50 billion in aid to make this and other infrastructure projects possible. When Holbrooke broached the subject of talks with India Zardari insisted that without something in return for his people talks would not be possible.  Holbrooke promised to follow up with Senator Kerry on the possibility of including U.S. trade concessions in Kerry's Security Package for Pakistan legislation.

The war on terror has been the best thing that ever happened to the AFPAK region. The US has pumped untold billions into those two countries and they still want more. It has taken a lot but maybe some of the nitwits in Washington may realize that we are not only pouring money down the crapper but actually funding the enemy that we are fighting.

The Killing of Osama bin Laden and most recently the allegations of Admiral Mike Mullen who told a Senate panel that the Haqqani network based in Pakistan was responsible for the September 13, 2011 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. The Admiral described the Haqqanis as "a veritable arm" of Pakistan's top spy agency the ISI. It is quiet well known that the Pakies are a dis-functional and non-cohesive group of government misfits. They where instrumental in the assignation of Benazir Bhutto the 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan, the November 2008 hotel attack in Mumbai India and the March 2009 ambush on the Sri Lankan Cricket team bus in Lahore. In May of this year there has been eight separate acts of terror in Pakistan on the 13Th, 16th, 2 attacks on the 18th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd killing 157 people with as many wounded. It does not take a international geopolitical genius to figure out that we may have a problem in the AFPAK neighborhood. So now we are pulling up stakes and taking our ball home leaving Karzai and Zardari to there own devices.

Circling the dead carcases left in the wars wake is none other than the Ahmadinejad vulture from Tehran swooping in to pick at the bones and offer promises of solidarity. The Pakistani Foreign Ministry underscored in a statement that Zardari's visit to Tehran was taking place as part of Islamabad's "continuous consultations, coordination and cooperation" with regional states on the issues of regional peace and stability, Afghanistan in particular. "Pakistan attaches special significance to joining efforts of immediate neighbors in an endeavor to bring peace to Afghanistan and to reversing the tide of terrorism afflicting the region." Now that makes you all worm and fuzzy doesn't it.  Now that the war is winding down and billions of US dollars are stuffed into the coffers of corruption. And all prewar sanctions have been lifted against the terror safe havens the AFPAK children are still hungry, the Taliban is still fighting, al-Qaeda is still plotting against the West and Iran is laughing at the US waiting for a fresh alliance with a Narco state flush with cash and a nuclear terror state full of Western animus.
