War on Terror
Do you believe the United States is at war? Is there a declared War on America underway at this time? Has it been underway for almost 20 years? The answer is yes to all three questions. If you said "no" to any of these questions you are wrong! You have most likely been infected by the agenda peddling of the American mainstream media. To help you understand the facts, watch the National Geographic documentary, Inside 9/11-War on America. This series can be purchased at NatGeo or you can view it on YouTube. The YouTube videos are divided into 12 segments, segment 1 of 12 can be found here. The other 11 episodes can be found in the same YouTube area. Some like to make fun of the title "War on Terror". "What kind of war is that?" "It is a made up War." "We are fighting a War in Iraq and a War in Afghanistan, not a War on Terror." Well, as for fighting individual wars, that is just moronic. We were fighting multiple fronts in Europe and Asia as a part of the WWII effort. This War on Terror effort is and will continue to be fought on multiple fronts (Afghanistan, Iraq, now ISIS, Libya, Yemen, maybe Iran, and unfortunately here at home). So, call it anything you want, but it is real. And, as with every other war, history will find an appropriate label for this conflict and this period in human history. If you believe that this threat is over now due to the killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011, then you are again wrong. The War on America continues. This unconventional war was helped by having an inspirational leader like Bin laden, but survives with the same objective to destroy "the great Satan", infidel America in a decentralized and dangerous structure. While America has many enemies at home and throughout the world, we must as a country accept the fact that right now the far greatest threat to our way of life and America as the great hope for humanity comes from Muslim extremists (both external and internal). To assume differently is naive and will be catastrophic for America and Americans like you. Following and in the sub categories will include stories and comments on this subject to give you varying perspectives. We trust it will helpful to your developing recognition of the continuing threat and be a strong voice in helping our leaders create an effective strategy for VICTORY.

Nighttime Raid in Afghanistan Reveals New U.S. Strategy

12/5/18
from The Wall Street Journal,
12/5/18:

American commanders see each battlefield win as a means of strengthening the allied position in peace negotiations.

U.S. commanders have long abandoned hope for a purely military victory in the 17-year conflict. Instead, they see this kind of calibrated military pressure—an approach they call “metering the violence”—as a means of strengthening the American and Afghan position in peace negotiations. The escalation inherently means greater risks to American troops, whose main job is training and advising Afghan forces. The raid that played out last month in Chimtal, a desert-dry collection of steep hills and rugged villages in northern Afghanistan, is just one of many similar operations being carried out in one form or another all over the country, where U.S. and Afghan forces are escalating offensive operations against the Taliban this fall.

On Saturday, a U.S. airstrike killed Abdul Manan, a senior Taliban leader and the group’s shadow governor in Helmand province, according to American and Taliban officials. Helmand, in southern Afghanistan, is the country’s top opium producer and a major source of illicit revenue for the insurgency. “You turn the dial up,” said Gen. Scott Miller, commander of allied forces in Afghanistan, in an interview at his Kabul headquarters. “The purpose is not just to kill,” he said. “It’s to shape the political environment.” Amb. Zalmay Khalilzad, President Trump’s lead adviser on Afghanistan, has met with Taliban representatives multiple times since early October, and U.S. officials sense a new willingness on the Taliban’s part to strike a deal. The terms of an agreement—would, for instance, the U.S. retain bases in Afghanistan to strike al Qaeda and Islamic State militants?
