** Perche al-Qaeda sta vincendo
** L’opinione e di Correlli Burnett : secondo lui le campagne in Afghantistan e in Iraq non hanno indebolito i terroristi.

The truth is that the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq serve as bitter object-lessons in how not to conduct an anti-terrorist campaign. Washington must recognise that combating terrorists is essentially a job for special forces like the SAS, for the police or gendarmerie (or troops trained in a gendarmerie role) and, above all, for good intelligence (meaning, at best, spies inside al-Qa’eda cells) – and not a job for heavy-weight hi-tech firepower.
