Glimpse into what we face in this War on Terror

...Based on tenets articulated by Ayman al-Zawahiri, the grand-strategic objective of the Strategy Toward 2020 is for an Islamist-jihadist Caliphate to replace the United States as the world's sole pre-eminent hyper-power. In military terms, the ultimate defeat of the US-led West, in which Russia is a key power, would be achieved as the aggregate impact of two types of war: (1) the attrition of the US and its allies by ensnaring them in a myriad of endless debilitating quagmires, particularly in Iraq, the Caucasus, and Israel; and (2) the demonstration to all of the inherent weakness of the US and the West to be achieved by a series of spectacular strikes at the heart of the US and the West.

AubreyJ says: Very lengthy reads at the links below... but it gives one a good glimpse as to what we face as a Nation in this War on Terror......

>> JIHAD UNSPUN ‘Planning the Great Ramadan Offensive 2005’
>> CENTCOM ‘What Extremists Are Saying’
.....(Be sure to read original English Version of Letter between ZAWAHIRI-ZARQAWI)

“I say to you: that we are in a battle... and that more than half this battle is taking place in the battlefield of the media. And that we are in a media battle in a race for the hearts and minds of our nation.”
From letter by Zawahiri to Zarqawi

Now... I have said this time and time again and I still say it to be true... These crazies are coming after us no matter where we fight this war... Better in their world... over there... instead of here at home in our streets, schools, hospitals, government and public buildings....

I too believe in a state-of-the-art border fence being built on our South and in time North Borders... Yet-- We can build all the fences... secure all entrances and highly secure every public and private building in this great country of ours.... But when all is said and done... They’re coming.... It just depends on where we as Americans want to fight this war....
I for one say-- “Not here...”
