    Default Al-Qaeda's secret plans

    Strategy

    On March 11, 2005, Al-Quds Al-Arabi published extracts from Saif al-Adel's document "Al Quaeda's Strategy to the Year 2020".[34][35] Abdel Bari Atwan summarizes this strategy as comprising five stages:
    1. Provoke the United States into invading a Muslim country.
    2. Incite local resistance to occupying forces.
    3. Expand the conflict to neighboring countries, and engage the U.S. in a long war of attrition.
    4. Convert Al-Qaeda into an ideology and set of operating principles that can be loosely franchised in other countries without requiring direct command and control, and via these franchises incite attacks against countries allied with the U.S. until they withdraw from the conflict, as happened with the 2004 Madrid train bombings, but which did not have the same effect with the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
    5. The U.S. economy will finally collapse under the strain of too many engagements in too many places, similarly to the Soviet war in Afghanistan, Arab regimes supported by the U.S. will collapse, and a Wahhabi Caliphate will be installed across the region.

    Their strategy seems to be working. Someone direct the US towards wikipedia.

    I love item 5, where everyone is just sitting around waiting for a Wahabi Caliphate to be installed, bringing us back to those halcyon days of 1300 AD.

    Seriously. I bet Julian Assange is behind the spilling of this information, that diabolical prophylactic eschewer.
