FIGHT THEM ON ENEMY TURF:

AL-QAEDA'S RESURGENCE: Ready to take on the world (Syed Saleem Shahzad, 3/02/07, Asia Times)

Al-Qaeda will this year significantly step up its global operations after centralizing its leadership and reviving its financial lifelines. Crucially, al-Qaeda has developed missile and rocket technology with the capability of carrying chemical, biological and nuclear warheads, according to an al-Qaeda insider who spoke to Asia Times Online.

While al-Qaeda will continue to operate in Afghanistan and Iraq, it will broaden its global perspective to include Europe and hostile Muslim states, Asia Times Online has learned. For the first time since its attacks on the US on September 11, 2001, this could be al-Qaeda's year on the offensive.

According to the contact, "The time has come for a message to be communicated to Europe." Asked what kind of message this would be, the contact simply smiled.


We're actually dubious about their capacity to do much harm, but how's the Euro-strategy of letting America fight them alone working out for you?
