Philip J. Fry: Wealthy Arab donors, Afghan businessmen and even Pakistan's powerful and secretive spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence directorate, have all reduced or stopped funding, each for their own reasons.The money dried up because the United States stopped shipping literal pallets of cash directly to our enemies, stopped sending on convoys supplying them with staples they could turn for a profit and stopped bombing the shiat out of weddings so the local populace had one less reason to be enraged at us.But yeah, maybe those other things actually did it.
Magorn: He says he has left the front lines. As much as he wants to rejoin the jihad, he doesn't dare go back until he repays the $2,000 he owes his neighbors. He's not afraid to die, he says. What scares him is the idea that he might die with an outstanding loan. "Anytime I'm out there, I could be martyred," he says. "And God does not forgive anyone-even a martyr-who dies without paying his just debts." You know, if the US military would just team up with a few of America's sleazier credit card companies, and rent-to-own places and/or payday lenders; I can see a real easy way to end this war and provide a win-win for everybody involved-on our side at least
