Haqqanis' are blood sworn enemies of Great Satan and have been fittingly functioning as Hellfire missile magnets for a while now.
Haqqanis are closely allied with the Taliban and al Qaeda, and have close links with the Inter-Services Intelligence, Pakistan's creepy secret military intelligence agency. Haqqanis run a parallel government in North Waziristan and conduct military and suicide operations in eastern Afghanistan.
And they have a prize - an American soldier.
Leaflets handed out to locals contained this blunt warning: "If you do not free the American soldier then you will be hunted."
Great Satan has been heavily criticized by the Afghan government for civilian deaths - 900 have died this year alone. Officials say the new message is not meant to scare the local population. - au contraire!
Consider it a friendly give and take - for now - the killing and scaring are actually quite dependent on what Haqqani does next.
2 leaflets, one scary, threatening with an uparmored super soldier smashing in the door to a humble abode and one fun and friendly with GI's hanging out and having fun with the locals, could be seen as a good cop, bad cop routine.
Great Satan makes no apology for her rather blunt tactics.
If any one is offended - so what?
Great Satan wants her son back.
