White House Announces Elimination of al-Qaeda Leader Operating in Yemen – Terror Origination for Pensacola Air Base Attack…

During the State of the Union speech on Tuesday, President Trump remarked:

“Our message to the terrorists is clear: You will never escape American justice. If you attack our citizens, you forfeit your life!”

al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) had taken credit for the terrorist attack at Pensacola Naval Air Station – Today the White House announces:

“At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a deputy to al-Qa’ida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Rimi joined al-Qa’ida in the 1990s, working in Afghanistan for Osama bin Laden. Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces. His death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qa’ida movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security.”

“The United States, our interests, and our allies are safer as a result of his death. We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm.” (link)

    Trump’s lack of understanding of their religion baffles me. “If you set off your suicide vest, you lose your life”. Would that stop them? “If you crash the airplane into the WTC, you will lose your life”. Would that stop them? No. They don’t value their earthly lives. They are deluded and are aiming at some sort of eternal life.

      Do you really think the leaders (that “somehow” avoid performing suicide acts in order to become leaders) want to give up their life/power.

        Soonergirl;
        It is EXACTLY like that. I have been commenting for some time that “islamism” and,Conmunism are BOTH cons; the ideology is just to CON the useful idiots.
        Like a pyramid scam, or street hustle, the patter of the con artist is mutable, whatever he needs to say, to get the marks to fork over the cash.
        In the case of these BIG cons, to fork over control of their liberty, freedom,…AND cash.
        The clearest indication of this is the crazy useful idiots of the left, under the Conmunist ruse, echo LBGTQ protections, while simultaneously railing against “islamaphobia”, while Islam says throw the whole alphabet soup off a roof.
        Makes no sense to us, but for those caught up in the hypnotic schpiel of the,Con artist, it makes perfect sense.

        Cons typically run their coarse, as by word of mouth people “catch on”.
        Then, the recede for awhile, only to reemerge with a new coat of paint, OR after enough time has passed, for,a new generation of ‘marks'(victims) to have grown up, unfamiliar with the con.

        Both islamism and conmunism appeal to those,with GRIEVANCES, real or imagined.
        Pay no attention to the ideological clap trap, its a CON!
        And yeah, the Muellahs in Iran aren’t strapping on suicide vests, they ard ‘managing’whole sectors of the economy, just like the princelings in China.
        Just like the old politoburo in USSR.

      While I am very thankful for his apparent current policy of getting these terrorists, I wish he, or someone in our government, would stop telling the lies about islam we have heard for the last 30 years that islam is “merely” a “peaceful religion” like any other and the violence associated with it is “only by a few extremists who have hijacked islam as cover for their violence etc. etc.”

      Even a superficial study of the real tenets of islam reveals it is not what we are told. It rather is an all-encompassing totalitarian ideology bent on world domination in the form of a “caliphate.” My opinion is further supported by over 10 years of experience in fighting islamists in the ME and SWA as a Marine and PMC.

      It will never genuinely coexist in peace with any other infidel ideology, culture or government. Any appearance of that is merely part of its larger strategy to buy time and/or lull infidels into a false sense of security. Deceit is a “virtue” if it advances the cause of islam.

      We need to wake up to the reality that in addition to progressivism being an existential threat, islam is no less a threat to our way of life.

          His actual words may vary, but he does seem to try to differentiate between islam in general and “radical extremist terrorists” etc. one example:

          https://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/21/trump-islam-terrorism-238643

          There is also this (admittedly selective given its extreme anti-Trump bias) from the Washington Compost. As with some other subjects, he appears to be less informed as to the details of the true nature of the Islamic threat and thus his statements are often vague and (to me) not well thought out. He is the same way with the 2d Amendment issues—appearing to know the broad brush strokes but not well versed on the technical nuances posed by the anti-gun lobby’s efforts to whittle away at our natural right.

          I support POTUS generally and will continue to do so but his apparently weak grasp of some issues, especially important details and nuance that are critical to good policy decisions in these and other issues gives me real concern. This is further exacerbated when he makes comments regarding them that may have the opposite effect he is seeking to achieve.

        Indeed it is a war that America is very fickle about acknowledging. As the 9/11 Commission said, islam was at war with us but we were not at war with it, in terms of actually understanding the constant and in the long term, existential, threat posed by islam generally—-not merely by a “few extremists.” Even if this was true, a “few” equals a great many in terms of a percentage of all islam. Even if the “few” were 1% (many experts put the percentage of actual fighters at 10 or more), that equals 15 million.

        Since islamists train at least 2 generations of new fighters all the time, it means that the idea of totally “wiping them out” is impossible as we will never allow the kind of “scorched earth” ROE that would be required. In addition, islam is a collection of ideas and as history has shown, it has never been a successful strategy to totally destroy an enemy motivated by ideology since the ideas cannot be killed.

        Islamists are content to fight the long war and they think in terms of decades and centuries. This stark difference in perspective to that of the “west” and especially America where the average attention span is almost measured in nanoseconds, levels the asymmetric battlefield that conventional thinking would otherwise give the advantage to the side with superior technology, training, equipment etc.

        islamists are not all stupid and many are very well read on America’s history in war. They especially see what happened in Vietnam and in fact raids on islamic hideouts have turned up many books on that war as well as the increasingly apparent reality in America that a great many, if not most, civilians really do not pay much attention to the activities of their military forces anymore and those who do tire very quickly of protracted entanglements like those characterizing the Islamic conflicts in which we have been embroiled since 9/11. As a result, they realize if they can trade lives and territory for time, while they may lose a battle or a leader from time to time, they can outlast us as they also did in Afghanistan with the Soviets.

These people are not inherently suicidal. In a very large nation we are still talking about a very small number of bad actors.

  33. NY Post: “All three of the victims who died in Friday’s shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola were young sailors who dreamed of flying for the Navy.
    Their names were confirmed Saturday by officials and their heartbroken families.
    Airman Mohammed “Mo” Haitham, 19, of St. Petersburg, Fla., had joined the Navy after his 2018 high school graduation and had just finished boot camp when he was assigned to the prestigious base.
    “The commander of his school did call me,” his mother, a Navy veteran, told the Tampa Bay Times. “He told me my son did try to stop the shooter.”
    Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, of Coffee, Ala., was mortally wounded by Saudi national Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, 21, but heroically alerted first responders to the shooter’s location before breathing his last.
    “Today has been the worst day of my life. My youngest brother gave his life for his country in a senseless shooting,” his brother Adam wrote on Facebook.
    “Joshua Kaleb Watson saved countless lives today with his own. After being shot multiple times, he made it outside and told the first response team where the shooter was and those details were invaluable. . . . He died a hero and we are beyond proud.”
    Joshua, originally from Enterprise, Ala., was a recent graduate of the Naval Academy, where he served as a wrestling coach and captain of the school’s rifle team.
    “He’s wanted to be in the military since he was 5 years old,” his father, Benjamin Watson, told USA Today, noting his son had been the officer on deck when Alshamrani opened fire. “He died serving his country.”
    The name of the third victim was released by the Navy on Saturday night; he is Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, 21, from Richmond Hill, Ga.”

    Airman Mohammed “Mo” Haitham. Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson. Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters.
