While The West Sleeps


Below are excerpts from other places across the globe, mostly pertaining to the GWOT; the Global War On Terror, the phrase the socialist democrats and republicans would like you to not use anymore. Screw them.

LA Times:
WASHINGTON - After a U.S. airstrike leveled a small compound in Pakistan's lawless tribal regions in January 2006, President Pervez Musharraf and his intelligence officials announced that several senior Al Qaeda operatives had been killed, and that the top prize was an elusive Egyptian who was believed to be a chemical weapons expert.

But current and former U.S. intelligence officials now believe that the Egyptian, Abu Khabab Masri, is alive and well - and in charge of resurrecting Al Qaeda's program to develop or obtain weapons of mass destruction.

Given the problems with previous U.S. intelligence assessments of weapons of mass destruction, officials are careful not to overstate Al Qaeda's capabilities, and they emphasize that there is much they don't know because of the difficulty in getting information out of the mountainous area of northwest Pakistan where the network has reestablished itself.

But they say Al Qaeda has regenerated at least some of the robust research and development effort that it lost when the U.S. military bombed its Afghanistan headquarters and training camps in late 2001, and they believe it is once again trying to develop or obtain chemical, biological, radiological and even nuclear weapons to use in attacks on the United States and other enemies. [...]
Why this is such a "news story" is beyond me. All of this "new news" is actually quite old. Doesn't the LA Times have people that can keep up with current events?

Another piece is in the Washington Compost: In Iraq, Three Wars Engage U.S. This is the typical news story that has the usual "we are winning but", garbage. There is a whole bunch of whining going on in the Leftinistra Camps these days. I wonder what kind of a non-issue issue they are going to invent next seeing that the Iraq War Is Lost and The Economy Sucks memes aren't working.

This story in Yahoo! News gave me a chuckle: Pakistani Taliban leader sleeps badly at night
Ya think? Imagine that. Wasn't a top Jihadi Scum Bastard recently taken out while sleeping? Sucks to be a Jihadi Scum sucker these days, eh? Boo-freakin'-Hoo. Naturally, it is the typical bleeding-heart "aw these poor victims" stories. Screw Yahoo! News and the idiots Zeeshan Haider, Robert Birsel, Simon Cameron-Moore, and David Fox that wrote and edited the POS article.

And now, for a reasoned approach to the Global Jihad. Stormwarning's Counterterrorism:
Another front in the fight against the jihad exploded today, Feb. 2. Africa, the next firefight in the War on Terrorism became real when "rebels" in Chad seized large parts of the capital N'djamena and have taken up positions around the presidential palace where the head of state, Idriss Deby, is holding out.

Here is Chad (according to the CIA) - 53% Muslim

Again, Walid Phares on the Counterterrorism Blog offers the clarity: Chad's Future Taliban enters capital while the West is asleep... [...] go read the rest
Didn't France just send troops to Chad?

Wake up.
