Afghanistan's Guerrilla War. AT.
Back to Afghanistan. Islamic guerrillas are gearing up an insurgency to
put the US into a two front war. By the end of Bush's next
administration, we should be up to our ears in two hot guerrilla wars.
Remember, this is fourth generation warfare. It turns strength into
weakness. There are better ways to prevent another 9/11 other than
getting caught in a trap like this.
Our amazing military, when bogged down in hot guerrilla wars
transforms itself into an extremely expensive, legitimacy depleting
liability. For example, we have set up a situation where we can't lose
either Afghanistan or Iraq. Two hot guerrilla wars would put all of the
military assets we have into those theaters. The additional cost would
run well in excess of $400 b a year. Casualties and confusion would
rise as attention is divided between the theaters. This situation would
then make it possible to strike at other areas (Saudi Arabia
inparticular) with impunity. Events would be staged to bait the US into
expanding new areas of operations. The key here is to inflate the
bubble of US power to the point it become vulnerable to catastrophic
failure. Add global guerrilla systemic disruption to the mix and we are
in for a disaster.
Note: This effort is led by mens such as Mansoor: Mansoor is
the son of Nasrullah Mansoor, one of the most respected Afghan
guerrilla leaders from the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan
in the 1980s, who terrorized Soviet troops around Gardez. Saifullah
Mansoor's reputation as a chip off the old block was cemented when in
April 2002 he led a raid in which 18 US soldiers were killed in a
guerrilla attack at Shahi Kot in the Zarmat area. [John Robb's Weblog]
