How About We Fight Al-Qaeda’s Bosses Instead?

How the U.S. can help Iraq in its fight against al-Qaeda – The Washington Post

Iraq is once again at a crisis point. Given the sacrifices the United States, coalition partners and so many Iraqis made to bring the country back from the precipice of 2006, it is more than unsettling to see a third battle of Fallujah unfolding. But rather than point fingers and assign fault for this foreseeable threat, the focus needs to be on how to best move forward.

Exactly ass-backwards.  The best way to fight al-Qaeda in Iraq is to fight al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia, because that is where al-Qaeda gets its men, money, arms, protection, and everything else it needs to remain a going concern.

You can’t go too far wrong if, whenever you hear the term “al-Qaeda,” you think “Saudi Arabia.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
