Al-Qaeda Has a New Leader

So why isn't this guy full of bullet holes already?

He may not be dead yet, but I'd bet he's very edgy over the idea of US Navy Seals landing on his head.

Soon, but not soon enough.

Need to double tap him

He's still alive because under the Obama administration, we need to do an Environmental Impact Study before we can dust him.

What Mustang said.

They are always telling us that Islamic extremism is about poverty and lack of education. This guy was well educated, a surgeon but a always a devoted radical. Westerners just have a hard time comprehending that many people in the world are motivated by spiritual perceptions that have nothing to do with education, political status or wealth.

ditto what Mustang said! :-)

Seems like we're taking out Al Qaeda leaders every other day, according to Yahoo headline news...how the heck many ARE THERE!?

Z, there are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. If just 5% of them are devoted to the concept of jihad as the physical subjugation and/or destruction of infidels, that is an army of 75 million. The odds of coordinating of all them into one, cohesive unit is slim. But if all of them are acting or attempting to act on jihadi impulses, the destruction and chaos in the rest of the world could be enormous.

If one in a million of my hypothetical jihadis rises to the level of a Bin Laden or Al Zawahari, that is 75,000 leaders! Recall how paralyzed the country was on 9/11. Also remember, historically there are numerous occasions where a handful of people or just one man triggered global events. For example, one man assassinating an archduke in 1914 started World War I. Given the fragile state of the global economy, the linguine-spined politically correct Western leaders, and the fact that most nations enslaved to Middle East oil, the numbers seem to favor the jihadis right now.

Most people I talk to don't believe me or call me Chicken Little, but I sincerely believe we are still in the opening phases of the clash between Islam and Western civilization. More is coming our way and the Arab spring is going to bite us in the butt.

You've all hit it head-on!

If I were in charge of the military, I would send a clear message by ventilating within 24 hours every proclaimed leader of a Al-Qaeda.

Alligator's comment is spot on:
