#1 Would these be the Iraq urban fighters who headed out after the awakening, reorganized refitted en route to Afghanistan?

#2 Little do the Iraqis know what a shiathole Afghanistan is. In Iraq, they could get a whole bunch of support from friends and family, live in houses, eat regularly, etc.

In Afghanistan they are going to freeze to death in caves, alone. And if they start a fire...

#3 The Iraqis got tired of being killed by carpetbaggers and stopped making them welcome. Now it's the Afghanis' turn to have the same realization. After which the Pakistanis can go through the same process, then...

#4 TW, you're right, the jihadi's tend to wear out their welcome once they get enough of them to be a PIA. It's similar to the drunk that pee's in the corner and won't leave the party. Once he leaves he comes back with a gun.

I note that some Pak's are getting to that point.

#6 This is good news. More proof of victory in Iraq.

As for Afghanistan, it's going to remain a brutish place during our lifetimes, as will Haiti, Sudan and Somalia. I remain, however, hopeful that North Korea and Cuba can be rehabilitated and reintroduced into the fraternity of nations.

#7 "Diverting ...Encouraging fighters to go to Afghanistan instead of Iraq" . Again, the US etal. is now engaged in a de facto WAR FOR CONTROL OF ASIAN MAINLAND + Perpipheral Enclaves vv Radical Islamism and aligned.

E.g. INDIA > Militants in Afghanistan-Pakistan includ JK = LOC, + NORTHERN INDIA + NE TIBET-NEPAL + SRI LANKA + via BANGLADESH.

*WAFF.com > CHRISTIANS FEAR THE [Hindu]FIRE AND SWORD IN INDIA.

Again, IMO INDIA's HINDU's may not desire to convert to ISLAM/ISLAMISM, but neither do they desire to see a return of European domination and infleunce in INDIAN + PAN-ASIAN AFFAIRS.

IOW, IMO the US = US-Allies are dealing wid FACTORS OF ANTI-FOREIGN/WESTERN LOCAL NATIONALISM, not just Radical Islamism.

D *** NG IT, MORIARITY, THEY MAY BE MUSLIMS + ISLAMISTS, BUT THEY'RE OURS + ASIA'S MUSLIMS + ISLMAISTS, NOT AMERICA'S OR EUROPE = JUDEOCHRISTIANS!?

Remember, COLD WAR > Osama Bin Laden was once "OUR MAN", or one of them for the US-NATO agz the Soviets, as was NORIEGA and even SADDAM, etc.
