#1 Recent intelligence reports show that Egypt's Al-Azhar University in Cairo is emerging as a covert base for al Qaeda organizational and training activities for a jihadi network consisting of many nationalities.

Covert? This $hit has been going on there for a decade, even when Mubarak was around. Then they kept it a little quiet but good grief is this now some big surprise?

#2 If you think the Iranians are brazen now, wait until they get The Bomb. If you are worried about how they might retaliate now, wait until they get The Bomb. Or you could just let them spread their tentacles throughout the region and terrorize their neighbors unchallenged. That seems to be the course that Hildebeast and Bummer prefer.

#4 I don't think you even need to wait for Tehran to get the Bomb (although that's a huge problem). They are in serious trouble now with their economy and the effects of the economic sanctions. Ahmadinejad can't afford a popular uprising. He has got to respond in a big way - and the usual approach is to create an external aggression. It's gotta' be coming.

However - it is gratifying to see this news report. Because we have been speculating on Rantburg.com for a while that Iranian secret operations were behind some/all of the embassy riots.

#6 Iranian Strategy folks are not dumb. They are modeling their fight after the way we fought during the cold war. The Qud forces are funding and training AQ and other groups that are enemies to the US. It is game on.

#7 Africa 1990's Kosovo before entire region close to 70th year Nazi Germany invaded Libya looks like some one in the 4th Reich is telling some Fibs. Does anyone have the location on a group of crackers one who got a scare and wounded in Africa working with Al Qaeda as part of the whole messy 911 thing?

#9 As per TOPIX + WORLD NEWS, inquiring minds wanna know is the US planning to transfer its MilFors/Assets from AFPAK to AFRICA, vee US Africom???

This infers no US milstrike or major ground war agz Iran is to be initiated in the Persian Gulf either by the Bammer or a POTUS-elect Mittens save for Dilomatic, Econ "holding the line".

HOWEVER, Iran is threatening to enrich uranium to 60% iff nuke talks fail, besides also not giving up on its NucProg.
