    Not really a shortage of people ready to jump into the void though, is there?
  3. And someone else will take his place, it's hardly going to have any lasting effect.

    They never actually aquire attrition loses though, do they? All their 'martyrs' are replaced by indoctrinated idiots from the poorest parts of Pakistan, India, Yemen, Saudi, Jordan, Dewsbury, Bradford, etc.

    Full resupply when the 'ceasefire' of winter starts. Same time, every year. Job done.

    If anything, the real problem for the Saudi Royal/Pakistani ISI travel agency is getting them all into Afghan on the sly.
  6. There wasnt really a ceasefire last year at all.

    The ISI might well be giving that particular activity up as a bad job following the shennanagins in the Swat Valley. (Well, we can but hope).

    Only if the Yanks force them. But if it comes to a toss up between a nuclear Armed Terry and an invasion/possible nuke from Uncle Sam (not if it's India , they would probably just laugh and press the button back to spite them) or carry on supplying the Talibs with intel, logistics, Saudi money and cocking a snook to the West, they will do what Obama says....only because there would be no other choice.

    "Irony". it's a bit like "silvery" and "goldy"....... :roll:
  11. What we're really doing is applying natural selection to their leadership and making sure as many young hotheads get into positions of responsibility as possible. I remain to be convinced that, in the absence of credible political and economic policies, this actually helps.
  12. So killing them doesn't help? I have no expertise on this at all, but doesn;t this suggest that fighting them at all is relatively futile?
  13. How right you are Vampireuk;

    Hafiz Mohammed Saeed - released today care of Pakistan. FFS.
  14. They played the same game with the Birmingham baker's boy.
