The au currant Pakistani Pres for Life (the former General Pres for Life for the undespotic) Musharraf pointed out great reasons for the Great Satan to put the "OH!" in No Go Tribal zones in Western Pakistan.
"All the terrorist activity in Afghanistan had its base in Pakistan. All the
freedom struggle in Indian Held Kashmir was Cross Border Terrorism from Pakistan
All nuclear proliferation in the world had its source in Pakistan. Pakistan is an
intolerant militant extremist society."
Until recently, Pres Pervz didn't cotton much to the idea of Great Satan stomping about in Pakistan. And true, he had good reasons - pre Surge Iraq was totally stocked in terrorist head choppers, Iran fanboys and Syrian minions.
Even certain pols were totally freaking out. That was weird. Never sounding like any ex boxers or former Marines personally met or on TV. Plus, Afghanistan suffered a Taliban comeback (actually better PR wise than Brittney's) every spring offensive. Quagmire was the word de jour. Al Qaeda was like a mythical beast totally indestructable hanging in safe zones in Pakistan and magically transporting anywhere in the ME.
That is so last year. Great Satan's Old Ironsides (which has quite a history of ripping the living guts out of her enemies) is cruising with a bruising. Gen Mark Hertling (with 2 PHD's) teaches that: annihilating wretched time traveling Al Qaeda (8th Century - no less) on the run is sweet, crunchy and almost like devouring certain snack chips - you can't kill just one.
"They are trying to get away or find new safe havens. And every time they think
they have them, we attack"
Celebrating Surge's very first Happy BDay bash, "Rock of the Marne" is no stranger to danger either. Literally vaporizing Great Satan's enemies with literally 2 tons a minute called in from on high, courtesy of the Great Satan's literally global air superiority. Iraq really is a quagmire for creating caliphates, emirates or theocracies (your choice Taliban or Iranian style).
Real life Super Villans are either running for their lives, snitched on by a tormented pop, held securely by Great Satan in controlled environments, incinerated on scene or left dead on the side of the road for a stranger to bury.
Great Satan has fine tuned the Land between the Rivers from a giant, sucking irresistably magnetic trap for wanna be jihadis, Syrian agents and Iranian minions into a giant, sucking, irresistably magnetic killing machine for wanna be jihadis, Syrian agents and Iranian minions.
"Send all you want - we'll kill more" In Afghanistan, 10th Mountain Division's General David Rodriguez explains that Great Satan's 10th Mountain Division is driving the Taliban into kill zones and into Pakistan's Federal Tribal zones.
"I don't think there'll be a big spring offensive this year. I base that on the
fact that the Afghan security forces and the Afghan governance and Afghan
development has moved forward. The people of Afghanistan don't want the Taliban
AQ gets no caliphate or theocracy in Iraq or a Taliban Afghanistan. No surprise - any version of Caliphating totally sucks. All death and blood and shame and honor but little staying power. Gary Anderson led a study of al-Qaeda from 2003 to 2005 for a Defense Department contractor. He lectures on "The Revolution in Military Affairs" at George Washington University.
"Everyplace where al-Qaeda has gained some measure of control over a civilian
population, it has quickly worn out its welcome. No one likes to be brutalized
and dominated. Its members have killed more Muslim civilians than have
misdirected coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Afghanistan combined."
This is significant. Al Qaeda and their Taliban Allies are retreating to Pakistan, capturing turf, hostages and defeating a military Great Satan personally funded to the tune of 10 billion bucks. The Land of the Pure is a land of Red Mosque insurgencies in the capital and a former Federated Tribal zone horribly disfigured into hot pocket caliphates and Super Villan lairs. Like Afghanistan and Al Anbar - torment, control and misery are all in stock out to the dock. This is their last stand.
"nine of the twelve districts in the picturesque Swat Valley, 100 miles from
Pakistan's capital, have been taken over by militants, who have torched music
shops, barred girls from going to school, forced women to wear burqas and
decreed that men must grow beards."
Great Satan is moving in for the kill - and this is not her debut in the Land of the Pure either. A real magical mystery tour escorting enemies to the perfumed Gardens of Allah and straight into the arms of the dark eyed ones has been running for years in an overt covert war that's featuring future high tech.
Like that stealth drone that may or may not have been the culprit for cashing in nearly a dozen caliphaters. Or old school special ops combinations that will only increase as America, unbound by commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan, expertly applies every weapon in her armoury to devour her shrieking prey.
Deploying risable decoys about Pakistan's sovreignity and Great Satan's Polite Intervention since 911, Adm. William J. Fallon, CENTCOM promises the future will be way more.
"More robust. There is more willingness to do that now"
Repeatedly tested, repeatedly victorious in combat for years against Al Qaeda, Talibanis, Mahdi Armies and Republican Guards Great Satan fields the most de luxe, all weather killers of killers in history - in pursuit of a goal most de luxe American arrogance is mean, scary, crazy and unpredictable (check Luftwaffe Bomber Command debriefs about that one) openly reminding the entire world that a 30 year in the future military could pretty much do whatever the heck she wanted, whenever the heck she wanted.
And this time, Great Satan is taking a hard look at Pakistan. And, just like ex General Wesley Clark laughingly proved to the horror of NATO cats, Serbian cutthroughts, unfree regimes and militias worldwide:
