What will Al-Qaida do if we leave Iraq?

Here is my anticipated schedule. I did not expect the Peoria Journal Star to print my letter about Creationism. I have received three responses—two posted comments and one by mail which have not yet been read. I also received one comment from my second to last post on Iraq. (“What happens if we withdraw from Iraq?” It was posted early Monday morning on the 16th.)

I have pushed back a response to a post on immigration that I will answer before dealing with the creation responses. I believe the immigration posts will take four or five. (I’ll try for four.) Therefore, it will be next week before I begin to respond to the material dealing with creation. I will deal with each one in the order that I received them. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)

The following post is speculation on my part. The ideas are my own and I certainly hope that they will not be followed by Al-Qaida or any other terrorist group. Here is the idea.

If Congress should force a scheduled withdrawal from Iraq, what might Al-Qaida do because of that American retreat and abandonment of Iraq? Using the proposal that troop withdrawal would begin in October of 2007 and be completed by April 1, 2008 (with or without a small contingent of remaining U.S. forces); this is what I would do in a general way if I was Al-Qaida.

During the retreat, I would not end operations in Iraq but I would curtail them. It would require a balance of enough to know that danger was still present but not so intense as to cause second thoughts and cause a reevaluation of the withdrawal. With the Democrats in Congress, that is not too likely but just to be on the save side—now is not the time to intensify the attacks within the country.

Most of the attacks would be made to look like it is a case of Shiites attacking Sunnis and/or Sunnis attacking Shiites and then retaliation of the other group against the first. This has been successful already in generating fighting between the two religious groups and should continue. Also, add in a Kurdish element as needed. This will be the continuation of the three way triangle of mistrust, fear, terror, and loathing between the groups. Also, continue to attack American troops upon occasion to remind the Democratic Congressmen that the troops are still in danger in Iraq.

Once the troops have been withdrawn, I envision two possible scenarios depending upon their goals. If Al-Qaida desires to remain in Iraq to use as a safe haven and to train their fellow terrorists, I would have an all out, intensification of attacks on all three major groups. Some of these attacks would be as Al-Qaida; some as one of the other three groups. The goal is to promote civil war among the three groups while also letting all three groups know that Al-Qaida is a force to be reckoned with.

It is not necessary and actually not desirable to topple any government unless a puppet government can be installed. Al-Qaida does not want to take direct control over the operation of the government. The hand behind the government would be desirable but even that would not be necessary as long as they have freedom to do as they wish within the country. While the American troops were being withdrawn, Al-Qaida should concentrate on regrouping, recruiting, restocking, infiltrating, preparing and planning for the attacks immediately after the withdrawal deadline. The attacks should be swift, bold, and filled with terror—particularly filled with terror.

If initially unsuccessful which is unlikely, try, try again. The government has just been abandoned by their major ally, the three major groups distrust each other, and the country has been rocked by terror for four years. It should not be too difficult under those circumstances to achieve your desired goal whatever it may be. To believe that all will be well after the protective force of U.S. troops is removed is as ludicrous as believing that abortions don’t murder unborn babies. Democrats might even secretly applaud the success of Al-Qaida since they helped in a major way to bring it about.

However, Al-Qaida may not be interested in staying in Iraq after an American retreat. They will have scored a major, stupendous propaganda victory over the “Great Satan.” They will undoubtedly claim a major victory over the “Great Satan.” They have already boasted that they were responsible for the Democratic victory in the 2006 Congressional election. They will claim a great “god led” victory in any abandonment of Iraq. It will be the most powerful recruitment tool yet.

The next step is to benefit from that declared victory. If Iraq is not the target, the more unstable countries that support America and Israel should be—but not mainland America just yet. The terror should be as intense and terrifying as possible. It should almost be a mocking attempt to goad the United States to send troops to that country or countries.

But, the United States will not. The nation will have learned this lesson. “Fighting for freedom elsewhere is not worth the cost.”

I would wait until the Presidential election of 2008 is just completed before attacking the United States again. For obvious reasons, November 11, 2008 would be a prime date to kick off a new round of terrorist attacks within the United States itself. If not then, the day after Thanksgiving or the day before Christmas would be good alternatives. I would attack six primary targets with synchronized precision. For example, targets in New York City, Chicago, and Hollywood. Or, targets in Boston, St. Louis, and Hollywood. Or, targets in Miami, New Orleans, and Hollywood.

(Hollywood because the entertainment industry has helped make Americans a gullible and vulnerable people. It would be symbolic justice. A country that is more concerned about Paris Hilton’s time in jail than the murder of millions of unborn babies is a country on the brink of destruction.)

Three major cities and three midsized cities should be targeted throughout the United States to spread the terror from coast to coast. One of the targets would also be in the home State of the newly elected President whoever he may be. Who knows better how to spread terror than terrorists?

Until then and after the completed retreat from Iraq, I would claim that every wild fire in the West, every industrial accident, every train derailment, every airplane crash, every hurricane or flood, and every other disaster that occurs within the United States is the work of Al-Qaida and the god that has blessed their victory over the “Great Satan.” There are people who believe that the Bush Administration was responsible for 9/11. There are people who will believe any lie if repeated often enough and convincingly enough. I would claim that Al-Qaida’s hand is in every calamity that occurs. There are some who will be true believers and terror feeds upon terror.

Spread the terror with lies and action. See if America won’t beg for peace at any price. Appeasers are very good at what they do. Spread the terror; watch for the appeasement. They will shout “Let us negotiate.” “Let us negotiate.” Let us reason together.” “Surely we can work out a reasonable solution.”

If the terrorists do not intensify their attacks after our abandonment of Iraq, this conclusion can be drawn. Our troops did much more damage to Al-Qaida that has been reported or believed by libertine Democrats. If they are so powerful that they can drive us in retreat from Iraq, they will intensify their terror. If they have been weaken by fighting in Iraq even as they claim victory, they will not intensify their terror. Either way, the Democrats will have allowed a major terrorist group to claim victory over the “Great Satan.” It is not good policy!!!

I pray that this does not happen. However, a nation blind to its own corruption and decadence will also be blind to its own destruction. Will the United States repent before it is too late? Will the United States seek GOD’S forgiveness? Or, will the United States declare “What is that to us?” “Let’s eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die.”

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)
