BREAKING: CNN.com is reporting right now that Taliban’s top military leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, has been captured. And, I had just posted a blog on this topic about 4 hours ago, see below, regressing the imminent capture or a kill for Al Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden and Taliban’s Mullah Omar. He should be able to give up lots of intel. Read my previous post below!
My original post: Happy New Year Everyone!
Yes, today is February 15th, 2010, and this is my first post of 2010. And my first analysis is about what’s happening in Afghanistan right now.
I have previously written about what needs to happen in Afghanistan, read it here, but President Obama and his allies didn’t consider to do exactly what I have actually stated in that post. I still concur with his action to boost the US troops in Afghanistan in order to hunt out and thwart off the resistance and all the elements of Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Looking at all the variables about what’s happening in Afghanistan now, with an ongoing pressure and full force by the US troops and NATO allies, I’ll note here now that Osama bin Laden, his top aides, and Mullah Omar (remember him, the Taliban leader?) will either be captured or killed by the forces of the US troops and NATO by no later than June 2010.
Disagreeing? The US and NATO mighty troops are going from door to door in Afghanistan, driving out all the elements, most of them will eventually throw away and abandon their weapons and ammunitions, and blend in with the local civilians, and those that resist either get killed or driven out into the deeper mountains. As the Forces press on, Al Qaeda and the Taliban will be forced to cross into Pakistan, but since Obama is putting heavy pressure on the Pakistan Government to do more, thus in the end, the Taliban and Al Qaeda will have nowhere to go but either blend in as civilians or get killed.
President Obama has also put great pressure on President Karzai to do more in order to avert and stop the corruption that has ravaged his government. As noted, most of Karzai’s government officials have been working as double agents or involved in some form of corruption to aid the Taliban and Al Qaeda; as well as in the production of the opium that helps finance the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
At least by June 2010, soon or around that time, Osama bin Laden, his top aides, and Mullah Omar will be either captured or killed. And that will tremendously boost Obama’s approval ratings.
But will the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden help stop the threat of Al Qaeda or simply fuel their passion to fight on?
