[ Editor’s Note: We are seeing a pattern emerge. As the jihadis are losing their territorial bases, the planes and helicopters fly in to extract the terrorist leaders plus the Western and Gulf Intel headquarters staff and sometimes key lieutenants, to have staff to build and retrain new terror recruits. The rest are left as rear guard die-hards, or used in the subsequent guerrilla war bombing campaign, which can go on indefinitely.
While initially targeted on the current front line Mideast countries, this “pay ’em back by blowing them up” jihad can easily spread to the West and the Gulf.
All it takes is either recruiting clean people with no internet radicalism history, or using “other” intel operatives to do non-suicide bombings, with clues left to place the blame on jihadis. I can think of a half dozen tier-one national Intel agencies who could arrange such a campaign with ease, knowing quite well how to hide any trail back to themselves.
You will notice that the Russians came out again last week publishing the number of Russian and former Soviet state jihadis they have in their database of fighting in Iraq or Syria. One of the benefits of incurring the cost of the Syrian War was stated in Putin’s explanation that it would be easier and better to kill as many of these native jihadis on the battlefield, where military power could be fully deployed to do it, versus the more difficult route of dealing with them once they came home.
The Russians are also killing British, French and other European jihadis on their own nickel, without so much as a thank you from those countries that even allow jihadis to return home, where they are then “watched”. Can you imagine all the murderers in prison who feel unfairly treated that they weren’t given this opportunity to be “watched”, often while on public assistance? You just can’t make this stuff up… Jim W. Dean ]
