An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Al Qaeda is as strong Today as it was at 9-11: US Govt report!

Ok, so SIX years and over 3600 US Deaths and over 70,000 Iraqi civilian deaths later… the “War on Terror” is a resounding FAILURE. According to the latest report from the Government itself (wow!) that Al Qaeda has rebuilt its Operating Capability to the same level as in the Summer of 2001!! Hmm.. so we are back to square one!

A new threat assessment suggests the group that launched the most devastating terrorist attack on the United States has been able to rebuild despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at crippling it.

You know of a disastrous and stupid endeavor when – if even when the actor would have done NOTHING, he would have been in the same place AFTER the action! This “War on Terror” is one such endeavor… probably worse! Now, I think it would be an understatement to say that Al Qaeda is at the same spot. The Govt is talking “Operating Capability” here. They have not talked of “Replenishing Capabilities” .. YET! THAT is the Major difference between then and now! Even moderate Muslims today maybe internally anti-US because of what US has done in Iraq!

When the final stock is taken… the failure of the last 6 years will be seen to be much larger than we can possibly comprehend!
