We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Maybe the way to go after al Qaeda is using a new organization: 'Ki...

[...] If al Qaeda is an NGO, it is a malignant one. But it is like other NGOs that primarily pursue peaceful change in two ways. First, Al Qaeda doesn't answer to any government. Second, it survives on donations. Unlike political parties, it doesn't seek to dominate the people it infects; it desires merely to use them for international ends. The best way to fight an NGO might be with another NGO. [full article]

Made me shiver way more than anything I've read from a respectable news source in years. The author is a retired USMC officer, but it reads like a shoot'em up-addicted teen fantasy. What do you people think?

What he is talking about wouldn't seem possible for anyone to really influence. Armed resistance comes from those with their own agenda. What makes the author think they would resist outside Islamic influence yet allow western influence?

Yeah, the control issue is not trivial. These things have a mind of their own.

I think he's simply talking about paramilitary commandos. Mercenary forces "contracted out" by a country interested in destroying the "terrorist NGO." He's calling it an anti-evil NGO NGO, because "paramilitary" and "mercenary" and "paid assassins" don't sound that good. Unless of course, I'm once again, completely clueless. 

Well he dismisses the Blackwater approach as uni-dimensional because of its for-profit motivation. His "solution" is more comprehensive but as Neal says, his fantasy's based on being able to control it from Washington like an operation.

For this he needs to hijack an existing agenda and corrupt it with money.

Which begs the question of what they would actually be doing? Blow-up suspected Al-Qaeda sympathizers and add to the stack of collateral damage?

Technically, he is right.

His four-fold strategy: local, military, developmental and media just comes from an analysis of a very successful NGO. What he is perhaps not factoring-in is time. The number of years it takes for an organisation to build up enough credibility to be validated and supported locally. AQ didn't just pop out of the desert on 9/11.

By the time his anti-NGO NGO is ready, the evil NGO he's working against will have made strides ahead of him.

Vaccination would probably be a better approach than chemo.
