AL QAEDA OFFERS CONDITONAL PEACE PLAN AND THE U.S. IS LIKE NAH, WE’RE COOL
September 11 2012
Cairo, Egypt – Pass or fail, there is no doubt that that the attacks of 9/11 were a watershed moment for Al Qaeda. That days was the ‘Jaws’ or ‘Call me Maybe’ for Al Qaeda, the big hit that changed everything and made them into superstars no matter how long that lasted.
When those planes struck the World Trade Center buildings all those years ago the fate of Al Qaeda was forever changed and for a little while it appeared that the assault was having the exact, desired effect. It drew the United States into a prolonged conflict, it made the organization globally famous and increased recruitment, and did more to advance their version of Islamism across the planet.
Recently, things haven’t been going so well. As anyone with even a rough knowledge of the situation on the ground could have ascertained, it just was not going to be possible for Al Qaeda to keep up with the United States. They were a wealth small organization but still small. The United States could spend to eternity and that is what they have done. That spending has led to a massive erosion of Al Qaeda, killing most of its leadership including of course the man who founded the group. Now Al Qaeda, faced with the reality of their situation, has offered a peace deal though it does come with some concessions, concessions the U.S. is just like, yeah right, we’ll keep on killing you guys, thanks.
"I don't represent a certain group. My role is a mediator between the West and them,” said Mohamed al Zawahiri, the brother of current Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri. “I hope this opportunity today is not wasted."
Amongst other demands Zawahiri has made, should he even try to convince his brother to accept the deal, would be a release of all Islamist prisoners and to stop intervening on Muslim lands.
For that, the U.S. would earn a 10-year truce.
It’s believed the U.S. won’t even respond to the offer and just keep killing Al Qaeda terrorists like they have been doing for years.
“I really don’t see the U.S. seriously considering this deal for a whole host of reasons. One of those is most certainly al Zawahiri’s up and down relationship with his brother over the years. He is not actually speaking on behalf of the group or his brother but just kind of spit balling things, throwing out an idea he likes and that is soft to be kind,” said Scrape TV Terrorism analyst Doug Davids. “Also, of course, and perhaps most importantly the U.S. is really kicking the behinds of Al Qaeda so they aren’t really motivated to make any kind of deal. In fact Al Qaeda has nothing to offer really plus they’re jerks and liars so there’s that.”
It’s not clear why the young al-Zawahiri hasn’t actually been killed already.
“It’s cool and all that they want a truce but it’s kind of gone beyond that by now. Maybe, possibly, in the years after 9/11 something could have been worked out but it has gone on too long now and the U.S. is just way too good at killing their people now. Not a chance I would venture, not even a little bit,” continued Davids. “I mean why would the U.S. even consider an offer like that? No matter who it comes from but especially from this goofball. He’s barely anyone to himself never mind to Al Qaeda as a whole. What a fool really.”
Mohamed al-Zawahiri, it’s believed, just shot way up on the kill list so he got that done.
