How To Get Osama?
  • Use extensive human intelligence. Penetrate his organization. Could 1,000 Arab looking, Arab dressed US infiltrators not go into Pakistan's Northwest territory to do the job? If he is there, why can't you track him down? Let the thousand assimilate into the population. Equip them with the most sophisticated communications technology.
  • Don't just fight the symptom, fight the disease. Don't just fight the mosquitoes, drain the swamp. Spread democracy Arab country after Arab country after Arab country Nepal's April Revolution way. Organize a Matrix in New York City. The Arabs can do it themselves. Be consistent. All monarchies will have to go. And be fair to the Palestinians. Give them a state asap. Build political parties in all Arab countries.
  • Seek a political solution in Iraq.
  • Don't strike with blunt weapons and armies that were trained to fight standing armies. Instead operate like they operate. This is guerrilla warfare. (Guerrilla warfare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
  • Confront racism in the West. Democracy is not a form of government where non-whites are made to feel lesser.
  • Democracy in Pakistan will be a good thing for the War On Terror. Democracy i-s the cure. The love affair with Musharraf is misplaced, misguided.
  • Being able to predict his future attacks. That is very hard to do. It is hard to figure out where he will strike next. The whole world is his stage. But if governments across the world with their intelligence agencies working in cohorts with each other were to keep closely watching the Al Qaeda affiliated groups, preventing future attacks might not be rocket science. The world might be a big place, but the members of Al Qaeda are only so many. That finity is what should offer hope. You tackle the problem from the other end.
  • Summary: drain the swamp, but also kill mosquitoes.
Al Qaeda Strikes Back Foreign Affairs Bruce Riedel By rushing into Iraq instead of finishing off the hunt for Osama bin Laden, Washington has unwittingly helped its enemies: al Qaeda has more bases, more partners, and more followers today than it did on the eve of 9/11. Now the group is working to set up networks in the Middle East and Africa -- and may even try to lure the United States into a war with Iran. Washington must focus on attacking al Qaeda's leaders and ideas and altering the local conditions in which they thrive.
