You Know Al Qaeda’s Gone When Children Come Outside to Play

Michael Totten has a great write up on his visit to Karmah in Iraq,  please go read it.

This one is particularly important — it shows several lessons that the government in Pakistan should learn. When the terrorists are the people’s only security then the army has no hope of combatting the Taliban in the frontiers.

For years frontier police in Pakistan have let criminal and Taliban gangs run rampant, and so now the extremists have taken on the role of law enforcement in the frontiers as Taliban now patrol the bazaars in Bajaur. That’s a clear sign of failure.

  1. I know, there’s more news coming tomorrow or the next day, it’s not going to be good. Thanks kindly for letting me know friend.

  2. You might be able to change your IP, but you can’t change the machine code built into your network interface card, and you can’t change the code built into your cable modem down there in Florida.

  3. By the way, the weather is lovely down here. You’ll enjoy it. Anyway, I sincerely hope that the bodies of the four remaining guys are found soon. Their families deserve answers. Just stop praying to your so called “God”. He doesn’t exist. I am sad that all six guys are dead but praying to a so called “God” never was going to save them. Let us hope that Wolfgang and Andrea are freed soon.

    Anyway, have a good life Thanos.

  4. I’ve got a call into the FBI since this in reference to a hostage case. Like I said, you can’t change the hex code in your modem and NIC, with a Subpoena your ISP is going to give you up. Nobody is anonymous on the internet, even though everyone thinks they are.

  5. Yeah, I already knew that Thanos. I’m NOT stupid. Wikipedia always shows my IP. It’s cool that you know the FBI but I’m not in the mood to go to prison and I’m not threatening you.

  6. Very funny. I read the news articles. I am IN NO WAY connected with the kidnappers. It was obvious from the start the six hostages were dead. The hostages haven’t been seen since January 2007. Fine, I’ll leave you alone.
