    Taliban under Crushing pressure

    Taliban under Crushing pressure

    The air campaign has had success over the past three months. Since Dec. 8, 2009, the air campaign in Pakistan has killed three senior al Qaeda leaders, a senior Taliban commander, a senior Haqqani Network commander, two senior al Qaeda operatives, and a wanted Palestinian terrorist who was allied with al Qaeda. The status of Pakistani Taliban leader Hakeemullah Mehsud is still unknown.
    Already this year, the US has killed Mansur al Shami, an al Qaeda ideologue and aide to al Qaeda’s leader in Afghanistan, Mustafa Abu Yazid; Sheikh Mansoor, a Shadow Army commander based in North Waziristan; Mohammed Haqqani, a military commander in the Haqqani Network; and Haji Omar Khan, a senior Taliban leader in North Waziristan. Jamal Saeed Abdul Rahim, the Abu Nidal Organization operative who participated in killing 22 hostages during the 1986 hijacking of Pan Am flight 73, is thought to have been killed in the Jan. 9 airstrike. And Abdul Basit Usman, an Abu Sayyaf operative with a $1 million US bounty for information leading to his capture, is rumored to have been killed in a strike on Jan. 14, although a Philippine military spokesman said Usman is likely still alive and in the Philippines.
    In December 2009, the US killed Abdullah Said al Libi, the top commander of the Shadow Army; Zuhaib al Zahib, a senior commander in the Shadow Army; and Saleh al Somali, the leader of al Qaeda's external network [see LWJ report, “Senior al Qaeda and Taliban leaders killed in US airstrikes in Pakistan, 2004 – 2010” for the full list].

    Haiti is like Afghan

    Haiti is Afghanistan ...

    Haiti is the same paradigm as Afghanistan
    in relationship to developing the SysAdmin

    Connecting the Gap to the core.

    In Afghanistan SysAdmin includes
    an insurgency.
    Haiti is SysAdmin without
    the violence.

    Of course there is a quantity
    difference but both are the same
    SysAdmin problem.

    Kinda like a practice Green.
    Place to work out the basics.
    And add a security wall
    after the "basics " SysAdmin paradigm
    is functioning, to equate Haiti to Afghanistan.

    Haiti shows our SysAdmin need

    OP-ED: Haiti Lessons: A Search and Rescue Corps ... , By MATT KLAPPER and JAMES J. RILEY, New York Times, February 13, 2010
    OP-ED: ... And One for Doctors, Too, By VANESSA BRADFORD KERRY,New York Times, February 13, 2010
    Another chunk of the SysAdmin force/function proposed as a result of Haiti
    The gist:
    THE United States should create a service corps of doctors, nurses and medical technicians to deploy to humanitarian disasters like the one that struck Haiti last month.
    Members of this corps would also be available to countries where violence, neglect and poverty are breeding extremism. History has shown that there is a significant correlation between adequate health care and a country's stability and security. It is no coincidence that terrorism often thrives in places that lack basic services like education, clean water and rudimentary medical care.
    The program would be modeled on the Peace Corps, with the added incentives of loan forgiveness and scholarships in exchange for a committed period of service.
    Of course, it is described as a "force multiplier" in the struggle against terror/instability/etc. True enough.
    The call comes alongside another one for a search & rescue corps.

    Taliban and Gey porn

    Taliban headquarters had lot of gey porn,
    Taliban discovers new use for computers....
    They spend hours and hours on the Gey Porn.

    Well that does explain the whipping of the boy for not growing a beard.

    The new Taliban leader whipped a boy for no beard.

    Taliban Catechism says they are not allowed
    to sleep with boys who can't grow a beard.
    As a practical matter the Taliban probably are riddled with pedophiles. About a month ago they came out with a manual of arms that prohibits young men without facial hair (beards) from sleeping in the same room as men with facial hair, because apparently the older ones can't seem to control themselves around the young boys.

    Basically that tells you that baby raping is such a problem that they have to deal with it at a policy level. They don't have policy on weapons, or on treating wounded, or on other things, but they have a policy on this.

    I don't think whipping influences hair growth
    If it did USA would have whipping parlors
    for hair growth.

    Taliban have NO HONOR and not too bright..

    Many Taliban have a porn addiction.

     Impulsive behavior, difficulty in delaying gratification, an antisocial personality and a disposition toward sensation seeking.
    - A high value on nonconformity combined with a weak commitment to the goals for achievement valued by the society.
    - A sense of social alienation and a general tolerance for deviance.
    - A sense of heightened stress. This may help explain why adolescence and other stressful transition periods are often associated with the most severe drug and porn addictions.

    Proposed definition

    Aviel Goodman, M.D., proposed general characteristics of all types of addictions in 1990.[4] Pornography addiction is defined, by those who argue that it exists, as a psychological addiction to, or dependence upon, pornography, characterized by obsessive viewing, reading, and thinking about pornography and sexual themes to the detriment of other areas of one's own life.

    Online pornography addiction

    Online pornography addiction involves pornography obtained via the Internet. Psychologists who support this concept argue that it is stronger, and more addictive, than ordinary pornography addiction because of its wide availability, explicit nature, and the privacy that online viewing offers. Some claim that "addicts" regularly spend extended periods of time searching the internet for new or increasingly hardcore pornography

    Ops and Intel update 02.18.10


    Was it Mossad?
    Maybe not,
    Israel, which has not denied involvement in the murder, had previously promised that Mossad, its secret intelligence service, would never use British passports to help its agents carry out covert operations.

    They used  Israelis passports also???

    The report added that Interpol had issued red notices for 11 suspects wanted in the case.
    this may break the case....G

    This was way to sloppy for Mossad, and some one informed, it was
    tied up way too soon, and the investigation links leading to
    the perps are not expalined.

    Smells like a false flag op.

    More than 75,000 computer systems at nearly 2,500 companies in the United States and around the world have been hacked in what appears to be one of the largest and most sophisticated attacks by cyber criminals discovered to date, according to a northern Virginia security firm.

    Aljazeera reported that authorities on condition of anonymity have confirmed his involvement with Iranian nuclear program.[42] The Economist also quoted anonymous Western sources describing him as "one of the most important people involved in the [nuclear] programme".[43] It has also been reported that he was a professor at Tehran University's Physics faculty as well as a professor at the IRGC run, Imam Hossein University which houses a physics research center apparently under control of IRGC.[44] There has also been reports of a decapitation program as part of a covert war against Iran, with the aim of assassinating people involved with Iranian nuclear program[45][46][47], much like a similar successful program conducted in Iraq, resulting in assassination of hundreds of Iraqi scientists.[48][49][50][51][52] There are also reports of Israel's involvement in these covert actions,[53] while other reports suggest the creation of a joint assassination team put together by western democracies to neutralize Iranian scientists and engineers.[54][55][56]

    He may have had a connection to all the BAD, contaminated nuclear material they processed
    that is useless for a weapon now. G

    This could bring al Qaeda down

    Rusty over at Jawa Reports has picked up on a interesting 

    We've speculated about this behind the scenes and hinted at it here, but I pointed this out to AllahP yesterday and he makes note of it today. It's worth another post because this LA Times piece seems to confirm -- or, at least, give some credence to -- our earlier speculation that the capture of an al Qaeda courier might have inadvertently given Mullah Baradar's location away.

     I'm building my post on his hypothesis and adding
    some Intel and pushing it with Paradigm Intel.

    The al Qaeda cult had the most number 
    and good quality hackers.

    We hunted them all.

    Their hackers were above script
    kiddies, and good social engineers,
    and huge egos. And had a good
    working knowledge of the criminal
    paradigm on the Internet.

    "Irhabi 007" was the reason our
    worked switched to counter terrorism.

    I've worked as an Internet Anthropologist
    for over 12 years now and I went to where
    the money was. For a while we were doing
    Internet investigations.

    I was working a cyber detective agency,
    tracking down Internet crooks.

    I read what "Irhabi 007" was doing
    and his actions and I knew we could
    track him with iur BSU's , and knew there would be more 
    terrorist Internet personnel along shortly.

    Todate we have publicly admitted to burning 
    over 45 al Qaeda cult and Taliban webmasters 
    and hackers, and posted their real IPs and locations.
    ( some of the older readers will remember
    all the skull and cross bones across the
    top of my blog, it was slowing down the 
    page lode, G )

    Well the al Qaeda went to the Internet
    not as a strategic plan, but as a last resort.
    They couldn't use mail or phones any more,
    so as a means of communication they fell
    back to the Internet. When they were denied
    secure phones.

    And after many years they felt they couldn't
    trust the Internet either, and fell back
    to messengers.

    ( even though the Internet is 10x safer than
    human messengers. G )

    Most recently their videos were released
    to "news sources" first, not to the forums first.
    As they not understanding the WWW feel it isn't

    Which is why they reverted to posting something
    on the forums about changing phone numbers and
    locations  to the chain of command, it was the fastest
    and most efficient method.

    The old messenger system reverting to WWW
    in emergency.

    US and Paki caught one of these couriers.
    Paper lists, names addresses phone numbers,
    accounts, chain of command etc.

    And expect more action shortly.

    This could bring al Qaeda down,
    and open the door for USA to go

    Iran's FEARS:

    Iran's FEARS:

    By Gerald Internet Anthropologist Think Tank

    Observations of the other:

    Iran both respects and fears USA.

    USA has not treated Iran well.

    And Muslims have their own cultural
    paranoias. And Iran's Shiite's especially
    the 13 th Imam clan are levels above
    in terms of paranoia.

    Abberjonny over compensates for his
    fears of both his and Irans feelings of
    inadequacy with empty threats and 
    extreme hyperbole.

    They did declare and herbal cure for

    This over compensation is a form of 
    FEAR relieve, and actually stress relief. 

    This was most recently demonstrated
    in the announcement of the "Punch"
    for the West. on the 11th.

    The "Punch" was telegraphed on the 8th
    notifying the IAEA they were going to
    start enrichment to 20%, and ask them
    to be present.

    Iran is still crossing all the "T's" and 
    dotting the "i"s.
    And that is very important.
    They are still working with in "the"

    There is some fear there.

    And Iran is crossing a great divide.
    Iran's intellectual growth has been remarkable,
    they have experienced cultural shocks that 
    have crippled other societies.

    Iran's culture has moved quickly from
    something almost out of the 1800's era
    to the 1950's in a very few generations.
    They adapted, in Afghan the Taliban are 
    trying to turn time back to the 1800's
    as a result of culture shock.

    The Shah did rush Iran into the 1950's.
    And without a huge bloody war the Iranian
    people switched from a Monarchy to a kind 
    of theocracy which wants Nukes.

    The Persians are remarkable, but
    why did they chose this course and 

    Looking at even Iran's recent history
    we may see some of the reasons for this

    If we just take it as a given US didn't 
    do well for the Iranian people during 
    the Shah, which may be before some
    of the even older generations memories,
    they have reasons for concern.

    The US took in the Shah for medical reasons.
    And refused to let the Iranian doctors examine

    Iran seized the American Embassy and
    took the Americans hostage.
    An act of WAR.

    But it was Carter, and Zbigniew  Brzezinski .

    US backed the Shah.
    They gave the Rezā Shāh PahlaviShah of Iran confused signals about
    the developing civil war, refused to let the new regime check the Shah's
    health when they gave him entrance to US. 

    He didn't stop the Iraq invasion of Iran when they had a solution to
    the hostage situation in hand.

    And finally didn't condemn Iraq for using chem weapons against Iran
    and voted in UN against sanctions on Iraq for use of chem weapons against

    Iran had committed a seminal violation of US sovereignty in seizing
    the US embassy and took hostages. For 444 days,
    and Iran didn't get their asses kicked, which they expected,
    they expected to pay a price for this they didn't and this confused the hell out of them.

    And the al Qaeda cult pulls a 911.

    And the worlds biggest dog
    just shit on the neighbors yard,
    ( Iraq ) cause they were bad, Iran
    had been at war with Iraq for 7 years
    and it had been a draw.
    And this big dog just put in new owners
    in the house in 100 hours, but the kids like them.

    And next door the dog attacked for
    911,just 15 hours after 911 attack and drove
    the Taliban out and has
    been fighting them for 8 years. ( Afghan )

    And behind them those neighbours have
    nukes, but even then the big dog fires
    missiles at al Qaeda in the neighbours yard.
    ( Pakistan )

    But the Persians understand retribution.
    And this supplies some succor and

    And Iran thinks a gun might help protect 
    them, ( nuke ) against the dog, but Iran
    has been talking out loud in the neighborhood
    about shooting and killing the neighbors across 
    the street ( Israel ). Who do own many guns.

    And the Iranians have been providing shivs and knifes
    to the neighbor gangs, Hamas, Iraq resistance, Taliban
    in Afghan ( IEDs ) and big rocks to Syria.
    And there is fear among all the neighbors they might
    start selling guns to the gangs, then every house will
    want a gun ( nuke).

    But these guns ( nukes) can kill millions of people.

    And talking, visiting and trading to the psychotic neighbors on the other side of town
    who might be selling guns ( N. Korea ). 

    And the big dog has told them they can't have a
    gun. And has even blocked off some of their checking accounts.
    And the big dog will blow up anywhere they put a gun.

    There must be a way the big dog can provide
    security assurances for the Iranian house in the middle of all this.
    Where they maybe don't feel they need a gun.

    Yes I know its over simplified but I think the flavor is right.
