#1 Assuming we can keep Afghanistan from falling to pieces again despite the best efforts of the fundos, we're actually done with Pakland except for Qaeda hunting. They may, remote possibility, have Khalid in custody. Binny, I think, is dead. That leaves Ayman. Everybody else in al-Qaeda is a nonentity and the war on terror becomes a matter of trying to clean up all the pickup teams and successor organizations, and chasing down middle managers. With the money men out of the picture there's nothing left but the existing inventory of death and destruction.

The Pak fundos are influenced and in large part funded by the Soddies. The place is a hotbed of lunacy, but they spend their time when they're not killing people gazing in adoration toward Mecca - actually toward Riyadh. Assuming we can take control of Iraq, and from there cause the House of Sod to collapse, Pakland becomes a backwater. A policy of containment and isolation will cause it to decompose. I'm sure India would be happy to take part in that policy, and it would probably cause chuckles of satisfaction in a resurgent Kabul as well.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
