The Obamaites go to war

AntiWar.Com

03/30/09

The Obamaites have inherited the central thesis of Bush’s ‘war on terrorism.’ In spite of renaming it, they’ve kept the essential element of the Bushian strategy, which is to mount an offensive campaign, to go after al-Qaeda’s leaders in their nests. Yet this is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the enemy. This nonsensical idea that al-Qaeda is a regular military formation, not a viral spore spread throughout the globe, is why bin Laden is laughing at us a decade later. Even if the U.S. succeeded in killing or — better yet — capturing bin Laden, it would have little effect on the effort to eradicate his influence or the movement he created.

A terrorist attack need not be planned or set in motion from a cave in Waziristan. The cadre could already be underground in Washington or London. The real alternative for President Obama should be to maintain a deterrent posture while immediately accelerating diplomacy to meet legitimate Muslim goals, from a Palestinian state to genuine progress on Kashmir. President Obama is right, at least politically, to take very seriously the threat of another 9/11 from any source. Besides the suffering inflicted, it would derail his agenda and perhaps his presidency. This is all the more reason he must understand that by repeatedly threatening to ‘kill Al Qaeda’ he is provoking a hornets’ nest without protection against a devastating sting...
