Whoa! As Great Satan lays it out to play it out in her super secret magical overseas contingency operations - one of the hot! selling points pointed out that instead of fielding hammers to knock out the gig, Great Satan would wield scalpels - sweetly sticking it only to creeps that actually need killing instead of smashing up everything in the impact area.
Sexing up spy guys with a haute military couture and stealthing up military cats with the 007 ensembe, 44's Shadow War would diss al Qaeda to death
"...In roughly a dozen countries — from the deserts of North Africa, to the mountains of Pakistan, to former Soviet republics crippled by ethnic and religious strife — the United States has significantly increased military and intelligence operations, pursuing the enemy using robotic drones and commando teams, paying contractors to spy and training local operatives to chase terrorists..."
"...An airstrike had hit a group suspected of being operatives for Al Qaeda in the remote desert of Marib Province, birthplace of the legendary queen of Sheba.
"...But the strike, it turned out, had also killed the province’s deputy governor, a respected local leader who Yemeni officials said had been trying to talk Qaeda members into giving up their fight. Yemen’s president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, accepted responsibility for the death and paid blood money to the offended tribes.
Oh Snap! Sometimes the scalpels are crafted from hammers:
Instead of unleashing some of those Drones Gone Wild! (rumor has it - they were booked solid elsewhere across the globe) - Great Satan's Navy fired off a magically enhanced cluster cruise missile that may have taken out more than the Deputy Governor - Yemeni investigators claim nearly 50 people lost their lives when the cruise popped off her rotisserie and did her gig on al Qaeda and everyone else in range.
"...It is still not clear why Mr. Shabwani, the Marib deputy governor, was killed. The day he died, he was planning to meet members of Al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch in Wadi Abeeda, a remote, lawless plain dotted with orange groves east of Yemen’s capital.
"...The most widely accepted explanation is that Yemeni and American officials failed to fully communicate before the attack
The other explanation is whispered that the Deputy Gov was doing a dirty double deal - actually aiding and abetting time traveling intolerant jerks in their demonic drive to impose their partic vision of imperial m'hammedism by force in a hood where tribalistic loyalties can be swapped as fast and often as blunts in a relaxed semi rowdy pre game party.
This is significant - and could be interpreted as a wonderful signal to certain part time leaders in Yemen.
In 44's Shadow War - the hammers may indeed entice recruits to hook up with Great Satan's enemies.
And they can also take out enticed recruits and potential enemies en masse.
