    We have got to destroy the sources of terrorist financing inside Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Iran. We must apply whatever pressure it takes for these fascist Islamic regimes to realize it will be far more painful to allow the funding to continue, than to cut it off.

    Sounds like a very effective strategy, much like the one on our home front.
    Divide and conquer, polarize a segment of the population and get them to fight against each other. :(

    They have been paying attention to our media, taking note of our strategy to use more Iraqi involvement to squelch the insurgency.
    Sounds, like Syria is a lifeline feeding the insurgency.
    They may get wind of this from the media and adapt. We need to pay more attention to Syria, the command element for the base may be operating out of there, much like we are operating out of Jordon.

    Division and polarization is what libs do. Rich vs. Poor. Black vs. White. Remember John Edwards "Two Americas" speech?

    There is no reason to assume that there is not already an effort being made to do this. Hopefully the US has many ongoing ops that are hidden from the media because it appears that they are more than happy to expose them and criticize them. If the media operated in 1941 as they do today, D-Day would have been unsuccessful and the death toll immeasureable.

    I’m beginning to wonder if this is winnable in the conventional sense, we may have to accept defeat in the public’s view, to win the war behind the scenes.
    In other words appear to have been defeated to take away their motivations to continue fighting. The objective polices for the region can still be archived through other means.

    Check out NATO Air’s excellent post of the PPP by Rand, very good insight to Opfor’s mindset.

    white knight has a valid point here to an extent. remember what pres. bush said to the congress after 9/11, "this is a war where many of our victories will be behind the scenes, little known."

    our defeats whenever they happen will always be public thanks to the media and hostile governments.

    It seems to me bush means many small victories will be behind the scenes. This is not too close to WK assinine statement that publicly we may have to lose the war. Not even close.

    I agree whole-heartedly however in the mean time the media and liberals are doing everything they can to tear down the man who is making these behind the scenes plans. How effective can they be if he is defeated?

    In fact, a more likely scenario is a public win with the libs and others yelling "puppet government", while we leave behind some troops and special ops for "support" wink wink.
