LONDON â€” Far from being crippled by the U.S.-led war on terror, Al Qaeda (search) has more than 18,000 potential terrorists scattered around the world and the war in Iraq is swelling its ranks, a report said Tuesday.
Al Qaeda is probably working on plans for major attacks on the United States and Europe, and it may be seeking weapons of mass destruction in its desire to inflict as many casualties as possible, the International Institute of Strategic Studies (search) said in its annual survey of world affairs.
Usama bin Laden's (search) network appears to be operating in more than 60 nations, often in concert with local allies, the study by the independent think tank said.
Although about half of Al Qaeda's top 30 leaders have been killed or captured, it has an effective leadership, with bin Laden apparently still playing a key role, it said....
Why do the media insist on calling al Queda terrorists "fighters"?Who do they fight? Those who blow up old people,women,children,people who have no way to defend themselves,are "fighters"?When have they ever fought anyone?What have they to offer?Well, nothing That is what makes them so dangerous.They have nothing to offer. They have no reasonable arguments,their written"bible"came from a man who lived a profligate life,married an older rich woman for support,and whose youngest "wife"was nine years old.Since they cant prevail by reason,argument or precedent (Judeo/Christians go back to Adam&Eve), they must resort to terror,oppression, and violence.I prefer the true God and His way.He issues the invitation,you accept or reject.If you wind up in Hell, you have no one to blame but YOU And blowing up innocent people wont help you,it just assures you a hot place forever
Thanks for the picture.I can blow it up and use it for target practice 18000 al Queda members can entertain their dreams of conquering America if they want,but I think I have some sad news for them.You will not succeed Simply because we are free and have weapons to defend ourselves.We will fight you from every hill and valley.Every house and barn and cottage.Every red-blooded true American will resist your ungodly oppression with every fiber of our being.You may pray to your false god,but it will do no good.You may dream of 72 virgins to satisfy your every lust,but the fires of HELL will make those lusts mock you as you recall every warning of the Christians whom you hated.You may cause many sorrows to many Americans,but that will not stop us from defeating your lust to rule and oppress others.Any attempt to break our will is doomed to failure.We will fight for our freedom to worship or not to worship.No religion that has to be defended at the point of a gun or knife is not worth defending.We fight not for Jesus for He can defend Himself.He has needed no help thus far. We fight for the U.S.A.,the greatest country ever founded on earth or history for mankinds freedom Jesus is a "true prophet"and you better listen to HIM!
