Team Sunni was already flagged before the Benghazi attacks.

 

TankNet. More than just stripper assassins and Gavins.

The first link is to a post you made that has no refs. The second link says nothing about the Pals.

Simon has been saying the Team Sunni split for a couple of years already in various threads in this board, sometimes in his very short one liners which can be easily missed in threads with lots of posts.

Mainly because I feel regurgitation brings nothing to the table. I would however like to hear the analysis of JWB on whether there is/was Team Sunni and who the players are.

 

Edit...I don't quote and I prefer succinct posts. If you cannot make the necessary leaps, then you cannot.

I only come here to read Simon's one-liners. :)

And the winner of all these revolutions and guerrilas in the Middle East is:  Toyota Hilux pick-up. As battle proven in the Chad, it once again becomes the preferred move of rapid movement of fighters. Although ISIS did take some Humvees from Iraqi forces, they are easily identified by drones for plinking, but a Toyota Hilux...you never know. Drone operator may have to call JAG on the line to get shooting approval. 

 

Want to stop ISIS and other Islamists in North Africa? Stop making Toyota Hilux and make it illegal to own one....

Trying to outlaw the Hi-Lux in the 3rd world would be like trying to outlaw the AK. Production would simply shift to black market shops. And unlike F-14s that fell into the wrong hands, we can't just cut off terrorist groups from the replacement part pipeline. There are surely hundreds of firms worldwide that make seals, gaskets, etc. for the Hi-Lux and its engines.

 

Amusing that Japan has 100-year plans for all sorts of industries, but their one export that seems most likely to last 100 years is the humble Hi-Lux.
