The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Al-Qaeda Update

First, the good news: the U.S. nails AQ's #3 in Pakland.

Now, the bad news: AQ sleeper cells in Spain and The Netherlands may have been activated (not necessarily in connection to the aforementioned righteous waxing, though that would make things interesting).
One of the biggest Dutch newspapers, De Telegraaf, reports that Al Qaeda sleeper cells have been activated and instructed to attack targets in a number of countries. The call was made by the recently arrested Syrian Abu Musab al-Suri. [His] followers have been active in spreading "the message" the last couple of days. A spokesman of the Dutch anti terror coordination authority stated they will look at the information and might consider a change in terror level. Al-Suri has forwarded his message before he was arrested and called upon his followers to strike targets in The Netherlands, United Kingdom, France Italy, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Australia and Japan.
And just for fun, here's a profile of one of Al-Suri's pals, Midhat Mursi, AQ's chemical weapons guy. He's listed on RFJ too.
