he'll bring balance to terrorism?

Hamza?

INFIDEL!
 
2017-09-12 08:46:44 AM  
So he's going to train brilliantly for evil, only to be seduced by the good guys. But at the last minute, after seemingly everything is good and just in the world, he'll regain clarity and fark it all up with once last spat of evil.

Just had a brain fart moment. Somebody else has probably pointed this out before but, Anakin was not the chosen one, he did not bring 'balance' to the force. It was Palatine. It was his plotting, schemes and actions that made the most difference.
The destruction of the Jedi Order didn't happen because of Anakin, he was just a pawn in the game run by the true Chosen one, the dark lord Darth Sideous.

Hamza, is that a ham pizza?
 
2017-09-12 09:42:07 AM  
He's been in the crosshairs for this job for a while.
 
2017-09-12 10:01:25 AM  
He'll be chosen alright, in the next CAOC targeting cycle.

Question. Did Dubya fly Hamza and his family home after 9-11?

'Hamza' sounds like some kinda chicken-based ham substitute one might find in the grocery store next to the edible oil products.

fonebone77: America needs to step up its assassination game.


Sorry, the rules specifically state we can only assassinate the second in command of Al Qaeda.  On the plus side, we are allowed to do that every 10 minutes or so.

oldfarthenry: 'Hamza' sounds like some kinda chicken-based ham substitute one might find in the grocery store next to the edible oil products.


Hamza (also spelled as Hamzah, Hamzeh or Humza; Arabic: حمزة, standardized transliteration is Ḥamzah) is a masculine given name in the Muslim world, derived from the Arabic word ḥamuza, meaning strong or steadfast. It was borne by one of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad's uncles, Hamza ibn Abd al-Muttalib, an early Islamic convert renowned for his strength and bravery in battle.

We are f*cked again.

Not that EVERY Hamza is a blood-thirsty jihadi. It's just that the odds for this one are pretty good.

That's Al Qaeda in Iraq (now known as ISIS). The second in command of Al Qaeda has only been killed once (and that was this recent February). It was Zawahiri until Bin Laden died, and then became some other guy (who died in Feb). I think the current second in command is Saif al Adel, but I could be wrong on that.

Al Qaeda in Iraq != Al Qaeda. Not all brown people are the same.

Hello, everyone and welcome to the 2017 Terrorist Draft Picks. I'm Dave
And I'm Frank.  Pretty nice field of draftees this years, Dave
Yes.  And some serious competition between ISIS and Al Qaeda.  First up is Hamza bin Laden.
Where have I heard that name before, Dave?
Well, Frank.  We know the name and we know he's got some big shoes to fill.  The question is, will he go ISIS or Al Qaeda?  Or will he go free agent and start his own group?
Choices, Dave.  They didn't have these choices back in the Soviet invasion, let me tell you.  Back then, you went Mujah or you were on your own.  Lots of really good players never got the chance.
True that, Frank.  The kid is lucky to be here and ready to decide his future.
The CIA never got around to killing this kid, Dave.  You think the Mossad would have made that mistake?
Never in a million years, Frank.  He's at the podium.  On his right is him manager and his left is his favorite coach from Blow U.  This is the moment...  Ha! No surprises.  He's putting on the Al Qaeda explosive vest!  He's going to go AQ!
Well, Dave this is a shock to those who thought he'd start a new group.  But Al Qaeda is lucky to have him.  Maybe breathe a little new life into a struggling team.  Before he's shot to death by SEALs in Pakistan.
There are seals in Pakistan, Frank?  How do they work the trigger with their flippers?
You've taken too many blows to the head, Dave.  Coming up next.  Ali A-buubuu.  ISIS really needs A-buubuu, Dave.  Will they get him?
By Allah's beard, I'd bet on it.

I think what is really holding back progress in the Middle East is their inability to agree on the spelling of a single freaking word. I mean the Brits have that '-our' hangover from the Norman Conquest, but this is ridiculous.

So for every terrorist we kill, about four new ones from his family or tribe pop up to take his place.
The Military Industrial complex calls this a cash positive revenue stream. Endless War, Endless Profits (also justifies the Surveillance State).

Funny story:
My partner's son is married to a Saudi woman (we're American).

The wedding was held in Saudi Arabia.

Osama bin Laden's mother was one of the guests.

Seemed like trivia before 9/11 but made us feel really creepy after it, being just 2 or so degrees of separation away from you know who.
 
2017-09-12 10:58:11 AM  
I read that as "Hazmat bin Laden."

The real question is how that count will be affected by the addition of a few ounces of lead.
 
2017-09-12 11:21:26 AM  
It's obviously been alludes to by others but here's my spin on it:

So he'll be seen as a rising warrior with incredible power who will win them many battles. Eventually he will be seduced by the evil CIA and slaughter the Al Qaeda younglings and be the end of his kind. After 30 or so years of running things with the CIA one of his sons will defeat him and help a resurgent Al Qaeda deliver a crippling blow on the newly rebuilt World Trade Center.

fonebone77: America needs to step up its assassination game.


I always wondered if America's assassination game was ever as good as they make it out in the movies.  Great publicity for the CIA no doubt. But apart from some successes  here and there, they never got various heads of state they were jonesing to kill like Castro, Saddam Hussein, Noriega, Quaddafi and of course, the Kim dynasty.  And Osama Bin Laden, it took a decade to find the guy.

After JFK, the other presidents made sure to destroy the assassination budget.

Supposedly Osama's Mom was looked down upon for being a concubine & Syrian(his dad had 22 wives/58 siblings), it would be just like any other social climber's wedding to foist one of Osama's Stepmoms off as the Real Deal

Huh, my friend who went to RISD always said that, too...
