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

I like it. I always thought that, after 9/11, we should have just told a student loan collection agency that Osama had welched on Stafford Loans from the mid-90s and let nature take its course there.

We don't always do a good job of finding our true experts and letting them ply their trade.

netringer: Corvus: And when Clinton was in office he had something like 76 cruise missile attacks. But I guess since they weren't "drones" everyone seemed to have been okay with it then.

/I don't get the whole "OMG drones!!" thing.

The cruise missile attacks were different, and not very much feared, even to OBL.    Even before the drone strikes they were "shocked and awed"  how big a boom real bombs made.  Then Bin Laden was warning his minions to stay inside to not be seen by the drones that were picking them all off.


I see so the cruise missile were better because there were inefficient and didn't work?

ikanreed: Corvus: Don't read the comments of that article. It's 100% pure derp. It will explode your brain.

So... the big reveal is that republicans think Obama is pro-terrorist?  I mean a lot of them think that he's the literal incarnation of human evil spawned to take over the world, it's not like being wrong is any problem for them.


I have no idea how anyone could look at the Obama Administration's record on terrorism and say they are "soft on terrorism", unless the sum total of their analysis is "He's a blah person and his name sounds kinda Muslin to me, so he must love them turrists."

Also, I love the look of that RPG the guy has, with all the nicks on the head of it, like he's been dragging it across the desert for a decade and ran it over with a jeep at least once, and isn't sure if it actually works... just a prop piece they've been dragging out for photo ops since the 70s

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.


Well, the Taliban aren't really Al Qaeda, and those trying to (re)establish governance over regions require something resembling legitimacy.  Losing major foreign support does in those fledgling(or collapsing) movements.  I have no doubt some members of the taliban can "live off the land" and rely on their sympathizers and black markets like you say, but it's not enough support to actively hold territory against a standing army.

//This is why the Union blockades of the confederates are ultimately what won the civil war.
///It's also part of why "2nd amendment solutions" are a pipe dream.
