al Qaeda is different than ever before.
They have morphed from a controlled corporate structure to a free form franchise.
Moved on from a centrally controlled payroll to affiliations under the same BRAND.

They have suffered many defeats which has caused them to switch battlefields
and methods. They have opened new fronts in Lebanon, Algeria, London, Germany, China, and many other locations because they are loosing troops, cadre in Iraq, but the major shift has been to the Internet.

The USA is allowing al Qaeda to control the Internet paradigm.
USA controls the battle field but al Qaeda controls the Internet and consequently the hearts and minds.

If USA kills them it is called a victory of martyrs.
If they are jailed they plead torture and disrespect,
and then they produce videos of them beheading civilians.

They show videos of USA attacks and claim civilian casualties.
They show videos of their attacks and claim all USA troops were killed.

Al Qaeda hide in the shadows and attack easy targets, and call them selves brave.
USA patrols the most dangerous parts of Iraq protecting the public and AQ call them
infidels.


AQ videos an attack with their cell phone, email to their media section and they have it out on the Internet in 30 min. of the attack.

On balance,
USA's losses are very good, any KIA, is sad.

But compared to WWII rates the USA army is doing a remarkable job.

Around 150,000 troops at WAR, and KIA are 3 or 4 a day.
And they are not setting around is some safe fort,
they are out on patrol looking for AQ.

Hunting AQ, snipered, IED, Shaped charges.

AQ instruction manuals say to be like dust or a gas, unnoticed and just disappear,
to always seek a safe easy target.

USA troops are trying NOT to kill civilians,
AQ is trying TO kill civilians, Market bombings.

USA troops are trying to stop a civil WAR.
AQ is trying to start a civil WAR.

USA troops are trying to build a country.
AQ is trying to destroy the country.

USA troops patrol the streets.
AQ hides in shadows.
