Alqaeda Leaving Iraq for Afghanistan???
Posting from “A Soldier’s Mind”
Â As some of you have already heard, Alqaeda has reportably left their fight in Iraq for the more rugged mountains of Afghanistan.Â I am here today to tell you that this is a grave trap and a bold new tactic that the terrorists are trying on our troops. Do not believe this for any reason.
Â The aim is to allow U.S. and coalition forces to â€œsimmer downâ€ for a while.Â If they focus on Afghanistan, the hope is that we here in Iraq will lower our guard and ultimately leave ourselves open for a direct attack.Â I want everyone to know this scheme and for all of our forces in both Iraqi and Afghani fronts, â€œStay alertâ€.Â This could be a very serious outcome if we let ourselves get complacent.
Â I donâ€™t believe the stories for one second about Alqaeda leaving Iraq.Â The truth is, they are just waiting for the right moment to attack with swift and deadly accuracy.Â I.E.D.s are becomming less likely here in Iraq, but donâ€™t let the lull in fighting fool you,Â as I have said before, this is a new tactic that Alqaeda is trying.Â
Â This is a warning to all friendly forces in O.E.F and O.I.F. theaters of operation, be prepared for a possible sneak attack by Alqaeda.Â These people donâ€™t just give up, something fishy is going on and I donâ€™t like the feeling I have right now.Â They are planning something really big, they wouldnâ€™t just give up the fight, especially what? 5,6, 7 years later, that would be like taking over a country, then saying ok, we quit, weâ€™re leaving.Â Donâ€™t buy this idea for a minute.Â Head my warning, I think something is up.Â
Â Soldiers on ground, stay alert, stay alive.Â Keep your heads up and report any suspicious activities to your local chain of command.Â We have to stay focused if we want to get out of here in one piece.Â I want everyone to know this, my feelings on the war.Â Iâ€™m here in the middle of it, and I know exactly whatâ€™s going on.Â I assure you, things are not what they are being made out to be.Â Alqaeda is planning something, I know it, and I can feel it.Â Anyways, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.Â Donâ€™t believe what is going on.Â My gut instinct tells me otherwise.Â
Â Â Opsec is the key, do not divulge information that could be detrimental to our forces.Â For those of you who are expecting troops home.Â Do not, under any unceartain terms, ask them their location and how many troops are with them.Â We must stop the enemy, before they can get us.Â This is a game of cat and mouse, donâ€™t let the cat win.Â
Â Remember our troops and pray that we can get out of this predicument and get home to our families soon.Â I thank you all here on ASP for your support.Â Without you, we have nothing.
